about

Famous philosophers Martin Heidegger and Jean-Paul Sartre both used the term, thrown into the world, to describe how humans had no choice of being born. Sartre said, “Man is condemned to be free; because once thrown into the world, he is responsible for everything he does.”

Both philosophers talked about the struggle that humankind has to go through just to live. But, in that struggle, there is beauty, inspiration, creation, human warmth, and connection. This album is about all these things and the struggle and beauty of life.

Philosophy and music can teach us many things, and for me, both are deeply connected, as is poetry. Once we are thrown into the world, we have the opportunity to make our lives what we can. Even if outside influences govern much of what we do, we can be what we like in our minds.

There's a saying that 100% of pain is in the brain, so it is with the quality of life you can live in your mind. My music aims to make you feel that a good and happy life can happen, by thinking it can — and life can be what you want it to be.
