Where did I go?
So it had been a while since my last release and then things went quiet. I had all good intentions and was raring to go but life has a habit of getting in the way and boy did it.
Some stuff happened which caused me to just stop. I pretty much shut down completely. I had to take the time to do some soul searching and make some pretty big changes in my life. The biggest change is something which I had been struggling with for a few years, something which many people are judgemental of and something which can make a person feel fairly ashamed, however I finally admitted to myself that I had an alcohol problem. I wasn't necking back bottles of vodka first thing in the morning, but I was drinking heavily five or six days a week, it was affecting my life and it had become a problem. As of today I have been sober for two months and thirteen days, and the change in my life is amazing. I appreciate my time more, I feel so much healthier now and above all I'm more productive. I feel like I'm in the best position right now to put everything I can into music (hence the recent surge in content). Sobriety is an on going process but I feel like I've got this now. It's taken years, but I'm finally where I should have been years ago.
Why am I sharing this with you? Well, I want to be transparent with you. I would like these blogs to become a regular thing and I figured if I'm going to do this then I need to start as I mean to go on.
I'd like to share my creative process with you and let you into my small (and occasionally strange) world, let you know the things that are inspiring me, what music I'm listening to and what I'm watching or reading. That kind of thing. I'll try to keep it informal but it's a real learning curve typing things out and trying to be myself whilst making sense at the same time.
I hope my words will interest you and I hope that you stick around for a while, it would be good to have you along for the ride.
