On February 1, I learned about something called the RPM Challenge. At first, I thought, “This looks cool, I’ll try it next year.” I already had music lined up for release at the end of February and felt like I was pretty busy trying to prep for that.
Later that same day, I signed my name to the list.
I decided that it didn’t make sense to wait for 2022 and that I would rather push myself now while I’m definitely motivated and need to find ways to get my music out there. This challenge also presented an opportunity for me to push my own boundaries and explore something new!
So, with that, I’m extremely happy and proud to report that I have a second album titled “Exodus” queued for release! It is available on Bandcamp now, and it will be available on streaming platforms on or around March 5!
This six track album is the result of many, many hours of hard work for the RPM Challenge where I gave myself one goal: tell a story with a sci-fi theme. (Maybe that’s two goals…) I wanted to feel danger, loss, and hope come through in the music in a way that I did not target in the first album.
For your listening, here is song five from the release titled “Lost”. And if you want to something to read while listening, check out “The Caretaker” by Kate Landers.
