It’s finally here!
Today I release my 10th project, ‘FRAMES’! I started making this project after returning home (Binghamton, NY) to see my parents and people I hadn’t seen in two years since moving back to Pittsburgh. When I got back, Bingo was dealing with a resurgence of crank and heroin, along with trying to stabilize the crime and economy.
My parents saw my broken glasses that I rode up in, and I got my new pair (the ones you see in the album cover and promos). And that set off the idea and tone for ‘FRAMES’. I had gone 3 years with broken glasses (2013), and at least that since getting a new Rx for my lenses. When I finally got my new frames, I could see waaaaay better.
Crisp detail in nature, trees, cars, people walking, etc. It was like “seeing better, clearer” again for the first time. And that’s how I compare our current outlooks on the lives we live and see through. This album challenges you to ask things like “what am I looking at?”…”Is this real?”…”how am I involved in what I see?”.
Sometimes, all it takes is a new perspective change or new FRAMES to better see the world and problems around us. Change our perspectives for the better, and we can change the world.
