In between each track of Odd Cure is a skit of you checking up on your family and friends, we felt it’s only right to check up on you as well—so how have you been, with all things considered?
I’ve been well, thank you. Blessings come in disguise, not being able to travel has given more time with my family. I love having a routine, I feel less distracted these days so it’s easier for me to stick to my schedule & get things done.
You mentioned Odd Cure was a record you didn’t want to write but needed to—what was the trigger point that finally drove you to get up and create? Can you tell us about your work process?
It never feels good to see history repeat itself negatively. We’ve experienced pandemics & social injustice before. There have been a plethora of songs dedicated to the same adversities over the decades. It’s saddened me to make yet another musical contribution to the question that never seems to get answered, why don’t we care? I was motivated to write this album because I feel it’s my responsibility to reflect the times.
