I love punk rock–the sound, the spirit, the catharsis. Raw, unashamed of what it is. This rebellious rejection of norms and expectations. To have my stand-up compared to such things by a band I sincerely love for their classic sound and style (and the personal and professional respect I have for the members) means the world to me. It helped me take a second look at myself and embrace a part of me that I long tried to downplay. And that’s not only helped improve my work, but helped me actually enjoy what I produce for the first time in forever.
Much love to everyone in Children of Eden. Rock on, homies.

Punk Rock is an exposed nerve
plucked, strummed raw
by the kinetic passion
of an unbound soul’s primal scream.
