When I embarked on this creative journey, I was writing as catharsis. My entire world, way of life had been flipped upside down, uprooted and I was getting my “phoenix from the flame” on in grand fashion. The writing came fairly easily for me, typically I work against myself by editing and re-editing, then starting over before I even complete a song. This chamber, Mother Nature with a Molotov, was freeing, light, uninhibited. I wrote free of fear, judgement, I let my hair down, I wrote more candidly, openly and honestly than I ever allowed self to before. There was so much transformation and change going on with Mother Nature during the writing process, everything synchronized itself in a very magical way. It felt good, and that feeling permeates every track on Molotov Season. On the eve of the one year anniversary of it’s release, I’m humbled as I reflect on how the album has been received so far. I took a chance and self released, relying only on a small, self funded promo budget and word of mouth. I just had to get the project out at that time, it was needed. I feel like Molotov Season speaks to who I am fully as an artist/mc. It shows the multiple dimensions, the growth, balance and the element of surprise, which is one of the many symbolic meanings of the molotov. Over the course of this year, the album drew to me a feature on Southern California Public Radio ( thank you Christopher M. Johnson), a four star review in Creative Loafing (thank you Rodney Carmichael), inclusion on the Hip Hop Digest Show’s Top Ten Albums of 2012 and a feature in Courtney Brown’s “Plight of the Female MC” article in The Source Magazine. I grew up reading The Source, to see my words, my name in it.. that feeling alone was just humbling. Somebody IS always listening, so keep pressing forward no matter what. These are just some of the highlights. I was slightly taken aback by the reception received, again in this day and time of hip hop music, specifically indie music, it’s like EVERYBODY and their mama is rapping. We are constantly swamped with content from every angle, Molotov Season could very easily have just gotten lost in the shuffle with the 1000’s of other releases in 2012. Thank you to everyone that reviewed the album, all the djs and radio show hosts that continue to include me in their regular rotation globally, my fambase that invested their hard earned currency and purchased cds and downloads, every producer, mc, vocalist, graphic designer, photographer that donated their energy, time and talent, my friends and family that have been there at every turn through the highs and lows. I feel like I really just got started here and I want the world to hear this album. If it flew under your radar, now is the perfect time to tap in and get some of this Golden Era Future on you. Molotov Season is in full effect, let’s keep it moving forward.
Peace, Love and Balance,
