About me

I am, to an extent, a music addict. I loved enough to start making my own on this useful site that is Musicshake. I have spent countless hours creating my own tunes on this website, and I don't regret a second of it (even when I make some really crappy songs). Throughout my time on Musichshake, I have created many crazy and interesting stories come to life. I am proud of most of them while others haven't withstood the test of time.

I have to admit that most of my songs have many very, very dark ideas behind them. I used tremendous creativity when visioning these songs, but my head was in a very dark place at the time. That is why about 90% of my music is either scary, angry, melancholy or just plain dark. Anyone who saw the artwork that I chose for these songs before Musicshake deleted them for copyright issues would know how dark my music has been. Some of these songs I look back and regret because I don't know or agree with what I was thinking when I came up with the idea for those songs. At the same time though, I am not particularly ashamed because many of them just helped me portray that there is a darkness out there that people need to know about. Also, those songs remind me everyday of how I overcame my demons and continue to press on. They remind me of how I have improved into a more encouraging and positive human being which is what I strive to be.

I explained all of this to say that my new approach as of now will be a more happy and refreshing with a more positive outlook. My style will not change other than a few musical improvements, but my themes will change tremendously. I just want to send a message that is easy to relate to in a happier and encouraging sort of manner. The truth is that I have been changed and saved by the love of Jesus Christ. What I now believe and want to promote is positivity and love that can set you free. I want to help set you free of your pain and depression, your addictions and vices, or anything else. I just want to spread the good news and help brighten anyone's day. I hope that you feel the love and come join me in having a relationship with Jesus Christ. I hope you all have a wonderful day.
