Can you tell us a few things about your latest release?
I wrote a song that could examine the ‘Illusions’ of society and this masterpiece is a labour of creativity, with an intricately weaving story, offering a unique perspective on how certain belief systems impact the way individuals are tied within the matrix of this world, and how escaping this chaos can be achieved through one’s inner knowing to follow their own journey. Illusionism flaunts entrancing melodies and was created using the bass/acoustic guitar, keyboard, drums and backing vocals.
