I began this project on April 9th 2015, on the front porch watching the snowfall in Upstate New York just before Abruptly having to move back to Tampa, FL. A few months passed as I let the reality set in that I was once again back in the state I kept trying to escape and I put all of that emotion and energy into finalizing my next album "Traversal" after deciding to hold off released the "The Uproot" (The Prequel to Traversal, which is still officially unreleased to this day) I stumbled back onto the session I began in NY, and Finalized it with new energy in Tampa, FL on November 15th, 2015 before working on what would be the Last track created for Traversal "Set Your Intentions" then released the album on bandcamp on December 30th of 2015, and Jan 1st on all streaming platforms while living in Tampa, FL, A few months later, I moved back to Los Angeles, dropped the 2nd Edition pressing of Chill Gawd, Chill which sold out instantly which is when Grand Garden Approached me to release Traversal on Cassette. The album was re-released on Grand Garden Records as A Cassette only release with different songs not on the original digital version and a sequence that flowed more accurately to my intended vision of how the album should be heard as front to back complete story, but this release didn't happen until December of 2016, Which was a few months after my mother passed and once again had to return back to the State I tried so many times to escape haha. So the album name really holds meaning as it was created while constantly in motion bouncing from state to state.
