The third album in the American Heathen series has now been released on all streaming platforms. Mt. Calvary is my homecoming album, after returning from a summer traveling Europe, this is an ode to family and a culmination of my biggest influences.
This album was inspired by theater, it has a chronological setting, starting in October it makes its way through to the new year. The track ‘Summer ‘18’ is presented as a flashback, referencing my time abroad with Remote Year, and acting as a time capsule as we move through the final months of 2018. The title, Mt. Calvary comes from the church my family has attended for the past century in Elizabeth, New Jersey. This inspired the gospel elements heard throughout the album. The “Church” theme was a metaphor for my desire to bring people together for the best, and symbolize the power of music through life (Summer) and death(Winter).
“Netflix” is the third song off Subway Series, my underground mixtape featuring pure hip-hop instrumentals accompanied by sometimes over-your-head lyricism. This project was done completely for fun, as a special gift for my fans. I wanted to take the sound back to it’s roots, and this first step led to the vibe of my third and final album, Mt. Calvary: Life of an American Heathen.
