This is my first full-length album after reinventing myself. The making of this album was during a time when I was at the brink of insanity… literally. I had a fear of being judged because I knew society wouldn’t understand who I really am. There were parts of my being that I kept hidden from people, kept buried deep down within me for so long that it was eating me alive from within. I was dealing with an Internal Turmoil. My being got fed up from hiding. It wanted to come out. I wanted to be authentic, real, genuine whenever I was around people. I wanted people to know what goes through my mind. I wanted to be ME! The first track of this album was made to do just that: Allow myself to expose what makes me, and to welcome you to my mind. It’s to give you a sense of what I think about on a minute-by-minute basis.
Not only does this album reflect what I think and feel, it also contains melodies and compositions that I created 3 to 5 years before the release of Only the Beginning. The tracks Downcast, Hi Fidelity, Salvation & Internal Turmoil were either re-mixed, remastered or completely redone for the making of this album. This album, also, includes two remixes of songs from other artists simply because I think they are excellent works of art. Overall, this is only the beginning of your journey through my mind.
