State of the Art
State of the Art speaks to the dichotomy of being an artist. The song addresses a contemplation every artist has faced some time in their lives; on how to do justice to one’s creative visions authentically and at the same time manoeuvre through the process of selling oneself and attaining ‘likeability’.
State of the Art is the first single I’m releasing this year as a solo artist, and it is a very real embodiment of the financial and emotional investment it takes to share one’s art and vision. I’m certainly not done yet.
This last year,I have been able to fund my releases through my earnings as a teacher. However, in some ways, I still fall short in being able to execute some of my creative ideas due to a lack of financial resources. As an artist, I want to be able to do justice to my music by putting it out in the way it is truly meant to be heard and experienced, but so much of that is determined by my pocket. And so, I humbly ask of your support, in continuing on this path and giving life to my visions.
I would be grateful for any contribution you can offer, big or small. If you do make a contribution, I sincerely thank you for the vote of confidence. It really, truly, means a lot to me.
Even if you are not able to help out monetarily, I appreciate you being here, and thank you for listening.
