every blackadder season ready for me to feed on

for composing music is as much a part of my living as breathing and eating. i compose music because i must give expression to my feelings, just as i talk because i must give utterance to my thoughts.

Anonymous asked: what's that quote about your dad about??

it’s exactly what it says on the tin, i said it’s so relatable because it really happened to me. my parents divorced when i was 6. i stayed with my moms so my father had to phone home for me to get ready because he would pick me up a few hours later. sometimes i would get ready, hours would go by and he didn’t show up. i would wait for hours at my moms garden so i could hear if his car was near, i remember it being dinner time and my moms just happened to go to the garden to pick something and she found me there still waiting. i eventually learned my lesson.

Anonymous asked: Beautiful thing you run here! Question: When did you start listening to R&B and why?

traditional r&b and soul music like prince, marvin or lenny williams have always been my main love when it comes to music since i was a kid. when i was sixteen i got heavily into more modern r&b like ginuwine, aaliyah and jodecy but something was missing. then i discovered maxwell’s embrya and that’s when i really fell in love with the genre, i knew that’s how i wanted to write songs.
it got lost in the 00’s, i have to admit that, even though a few classics still came out at that time, but it’s coming back with artists like jeremih, frank ocean, fka twigs and the weeknd.
why… i don’t believe there’s a better fuel for your sex life than r&b. when i was eighteen, if i got at that house and usher was playing, i knew i was going to be sore the morning after.

"what does god say when he talks to you?"
“god doesn’t talk to me. he puts inspiration in me and it doesn’t go away until i’ve done it.”
