I’VE MADE A ZILLION MIXES BY THIS POINT IN MY “LITTLE DJ PHASE,” BUT THIS ONE IS A PERSONAL MARK OF PROGRESS FOR ME. “LIKE” IS AN ORIGINAL SONG I WROTE WITH DANA AND ROSE, IT WAS THE FIRST TIME I HAD OPENED MYSELF UP TO WRITING WITH OTHERS. FOR THE LAST FEW YEARS I’VE BEEN WANTING TO MAKE MY OWN MUSIC AND SING AGAIN, AND SO I WOULD WRITE — ALONE, FRUSTRATED, A NOTEBOOK FULL OF CROSSED OUT LYRICS, FULL OF SELF DOUBT. I WAS SO SCARED TO WORK WITH OTHERS MAYBE BECAUSE I DIDN’T BELIEVE IN MY OWN ABILITIES. I’VE BEEN CRIPPLED WITH THE IDEA THAT I MUST DO EVERYTHING ALONE BY MYSELF, THAT ASKING FOR HELP WAS NOT AN OPTION IF I EVER WANTED TO BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY. NEEDLESS TO SAY I WAS GETTING NOWHERE. DANA, MY CLOSE FRIEND OF MAYBE 13 YEARS WHO I USED TO SING WITH BACK IN SCHOOL, ENCOURAGED ME TO JOIN A WRITING SESSION WITH HER AND HER WRITING PARTNER. AND, ALTHOUGH RELUCTANTLY, I DID. ENTER ROSE. BEING IN A ROOM WITH MORE CREATIVE ENERGY OPENED UP MY SENSES LIKE POPPING CLARITIN DURING ALLERGY SEASON. AFTER SHARING BEATS THAT JR JARRIS HAD SENT OVER, ROSE, DANA, AND I CRANKED OUT “LIKE” IN ABOUT 3 HOURS. IT WAS INCREDIBLY EMPOWERING AND REWARDING TO GO ON A CREATIVE JOURNEY WITH PEOPLE WHO GET YOUR VIBE. AS SOMEONE WHO CAN NEVER SEEM TO SHAKE THEIR ANXIETY, I AM ACTUALLY EXCITED FOR ONCE TO CREATE MORE. IT WAS FUN AND WE LAUGHED A LOT AND WE MADE SOMETHING AND I JUST WANT TO DO THAT ALWAYS. I DON’T MEAN TO BE DRAMATIC, IT’S ONE SONG, BUT I’M SO NEW TO THE INTOXICATING POWER OF COLLABORATION. THE SIMPLE NOTION THAT WE CAN ALL WORK TOGETHER AND MAKE EACH OTHER STRONGER.

THANK YOU DANA, ROSE, JR JARRIS, DAVID KIM, TAYLOR OKATA, JACQUELINE SCHNEIDER, KYLE REYES, THE FOLKS AT HYPETRAK, MY FRIENDS AND SUPPORTERS WHO HAVE TAKEN A REAL CHANCE ON ME, AND CONTINUALLY ENCOURAGE ME TO STEP OUT AND SHARE THIS SIDE OF MYSELF. MORE TO COME XX



I'm just trying to make my art and do what's smart. Cake donuts are clutch.
