Ascension EP

This EP has been a long time in the works. Over a year in fact. What was suppose to be a full album got chopped, mixed up, eviscerated, condensed and then shoved into a deep, dark hole for no one to hear. It's been a struggle of procrastination, musical self deprecation all hindered on the belief that it "Just didn't sound good enough". After wrestling with self doubt for so long I grew tired of the thought of the music being a victim of the aforementioned issues. This couldn't stand. These songs needed to be free. They needed to be laid out into the world and allow for everyone else to make the decisions on weather they were sonically worthy of anyone's ears. This is a pinnacle release for me. One that will hopefully allow to me to ascend above and beyond my self doubts. One that will hopefully allow for many more in the future. I hope anyone who listen's to this album find's something they like about it. Even if it's just one small thing. If I can do that, then I will breathe a sigh of relief and feel proud and accomplished of what I have created.
