Yes. My EP, The Winter Year is now completely free! Seriously. Absolutely free. Like, for the taking.
First of all, I’d like to thank all my supporters for everything through the album. While making this album, I couldn’t have possibly fathomed the amount of support I received during this album from friends, family, and all the new people that I’ve only just met.
Come to think of it, it almost seems impossible to me that I completed a full EP. If you had asked me only four years ago, I wouldn’t have any idea what you were talking about. But now I stand here, with a self-produced EP in my hand and a stirring passion for creating music in my heart. And even though this album was self-produced, it wouldn’t have been possible without the help of many people. Without them, this EP wouldn’t even exist.
It’s almost been a full year since I first attempted music writing (and that first attempt turned into the first track ‘Star Girl’), and it has been a very enjoyable experience ever since. I’m really glad I got to share a piece of myself with you all, and I’m really glad I got to try this new thing. At the end of the day, it’s all really about how much fun you had.
For now, however, I’m slowly going back to my old roots of theatre and acting. I’ve got a few projects in the line, and music has taken a back seat on this journey. And even though this means that I won’t be as into music as I am now, I still have a few songs that I’m writing on the side, as well as the occasional YouTube cover on my channel. So this is no way near the end. I’m just somewhere else right now.
So, as a token of my gratitude, I’d like to give you all The Winter Year for free. This is my way of saying thank you for the support, and how happy you have all made me. I’m really excited to continue with my projects, and releasing more music to you all.
