The road to completing this album has been a long, twisting sort. Originally conceived in 2009, I wrote this project directly after writing my last full album ((Hear)), My Dear. They were set to be released together; needless to say, that did not happen., I felt like This Funk was something so totally different that it needed to stand on its own. The ((Hear)), My Dear album was so deep in it’s intentions to be a tribute album to Marvin Gaye, I eventually felt like the sound of the album wasn’t my own. On This Funk, I tried new song concepts, rhyme schemes, sampling techniques and overall envisioning of how I wanted it to be perceived. Basically more of me went into it. So I hope you enjoy what I have created as much as I enjoyed putting it together.
