Behind The Spotlight
Another song coming from my upcoming 2nd Album: The Beauty In Brokenness, this will be Track 9. This song is a haunting reflection on the consequences of using your body/image to make money. LYRICS: [Verse 1] Oh for her it's always lights, camera, action Spotlights on she's the main attraction Everyone knows she's the star of the show But behind the scenes, she's struggling to cope [Chorus] Yeah, she smiles, but she's living a life, with secrets and regrets. Yeah, she smiles, but behind the scenes, she never forgets. and, some say, she gives as good as she gets. But, she says, it’s ‘cos she has nothing else left. [Verse 2] She trades her body for likes and attention A clickbait headline, a follower obsession To the outside she is the star of the show But inside she’s living a life that no one knows. [Chorus] Yeah, she smiles, but she's living a life, with secrets and regrets. Yeah, she smiles, but behind the scenes, she never forgets. and, some say, she gives as good as she gets. But, she says, it’s ‘cos she has nothing else left. [Bridge] Her, skin crawls with anxiety. Her, soul aches from the glare of being seen. Her, secrets are eating away at her frame. She's getting lost in her own mind again. [Chorus] Yeah, she smiles, but she's living a life, with secrets and regrets. Yeah, she smiles, but behind the scenes, she never forgets. and, some say, she gives as good as she gets. But, she says, it’s ‘cos she has nothing else left. [Outro] (who knows, what happens when the attention goes?) (who knows, what happens when the attention goes?) But in the silence of her darkest night She whispers, "Is this really what I’m living for?"more

Look Who's Laughing
I flew to Jamaica in search of an artist that had a story to tell. I found one. He was once in the spotlight and his group basically left him out of all the contracts they had to get paid for music. This is his story. We recorded his vocals in a little bodega in Ochos Rios, Jamaica. I flew home created this beat for his song, mixed and mastered it, and am going to release it with a few other great tracks we were able to capture. Check it out and let me know what you think. Thanks!!more
