Surpriseeeee I got a whole new ass album coming out on September 21st, the 8th anniversary of my debut release The “Summer” EP (Tranny Boy, Boys Will Be Girls, Boys of Summer) Yes I still am doing titles with the word boy in it DEAL WITH IT! When I told y’all I’m like Prince and have multiple albums in the vault that get released when fully baked I MEANT IT! This album is 25 tracks, almost all entirely written on guitar. A couple I played guitar on but mostly used loops. This is the first album I’ve written entirely on my own and my first without Shan, feels a bit weird.
“Almost Famous” brings to the surface every emotion I felt that was linked to not feeling good enough. Songs like “Illegal”, “Mean” and Love is Not For Us” are about my failures in romantic love. Constantly questioning my own self worth and feeling like I would be forever alone. Others like the title track and “Talk Trash” are about general self esteem and becoming almost famous. Constantly feeling like I’m on the edge of glory and dedicating myself to not give up. With this album I really wanted to bare all and not put up a front. Sonically gritty, lofi and a non-political version of Madonna’s menopause album, “American Life”. I definitely was going through a dark time when writing a good chunk of these lyrics. Isolating myself and getting high before quarantine was a thing we all did. Feeling like I couldn’t take on the world no matter how badly I wanted to. I see it as a way to make room for the next chapter. Also, you can alllllmost see it but my shirt does actually say “Almost Famous” on it but I loved the vibe and color scheme of this selfie so I kept it lofi and not overproduced just like the album.
Ever since I was a lion for one Halloween I've been wanting to redo this super fun video. I shot and edited the video [except CupcakKe's part]. Here's a little back story for y'all. Back in 2015 CupcakKe was doing collaborations for $300 so I seized the opportunity and sent her "Man Pussy" and "I'm Ya Kween". She loved the track and sent me her verse within a week. Then when I was thinking of doing a video for the song I asked her if she would be in it, not only did she do it for free but she also posted it on her YouTube channel. It gained over 100,000 views before she deleted her videos in 2019. I also had the chance to meet her in 2016 at Trans Am in Ridgewood, NY which was actually around the corner from where I grew up. She was super sweet and we even got a photo together.
The new heavy-metal/trap/screamo 5 track EP is finally here! I have been wanting to explore screamo music ever since my college voice teacher, Karen Caar told me I could. The album is about a superhero who is awakened to save humanity from toxic masculinity. The tracks are out of this world in song structure and intensity and is not for the weak or sensitive of hearing. The incredible artwork was created by my cousin, Amanda Torres and depicts me as a slightly feminine Dragonball Z type character. Amanda and I are currently working on cartoon videos for the album so stay tuned for more.
