Tell us about your latest project “Sorry for the Technical Difficultues” and what was the inspiration behind it?
When I made “Sorry for the Technical Difficulties” I was in very low place. I was running in to self inflected road blocks on my Album “Good Days Forever” cause my depression set in and derailed the project. I was battling depression. I was really struggling to focus on anything. Didn’t care about much. It was a 3 month period where I stayed in the bed for hours. My days were filled with stress, intrusive thoughts, and contemplation of suicide. So much so I actually tried to take my own live. I been battling depression for majority of my life but the creation of “Sorry for the Technical Difficulties” help me start talking about my issue more. It also gave a fresh creative out look on my next album “Good Days Forever”. It help me understand my true purpose as an artist.
