Music has always played a major part in my life. Many people say that but let me emphasize it by saying music is what keeps my blood pumping. It's my Life Alert when I’ve fallen and can’t get up. I may not be able to remember what happened yesterday, but I vividly recall my first moments falling in love with a sound when I was younger. Whether it was the orchestral masterpieces of John Williams or the haunting hypnotizing harmonies of many bands in the 60s, those memories don't fade. Being blessed with three older siblings and hardcore Baby Boomer parents, I found myself discovering a range of music.
Discovery blended sounds that were familiar like funk and pop and foreign like techno and rock. As a child, I don't think my ears knew what was going on but they liked it. Each song tugged, if not yacked, on emotional heartstrings, tapping into known feelings while uncovering more complex indescribable ones. The songs individually can hold their own but together take you through a journey of sound with a futuristic vibe.
The thumping bass lines hit your core, keeping you grounded while your spirit is elevated through guitar riffs and other instrumental breakdowns. Most of the songs work on a repetitive loop that lead you to a moment clarity when they break from it, then ascending to the end. The auto-tuned vocals made you feel as if you were in another dimension, witnessing the future of music.
