“Old Him” (Prod. by The Zillas)
Since I started traveling, it’s been a pretty dynamic experience. It’s been beautiful and very difficult at the same time. India is a place that has some of the most promising things, but also some of the most devastating things. They have greatest thinkers and wealthy businessmen, yet at the same time millions of people starving and struggling. Photographs just don’t do it justice. While in India, I was lucky enough to find my way into a studio. Being back in a comfortable environment, like the studio, I was able work though my thoughts and created this song.
Here is “Old Him”, a song produced by my Zillas (Elan Wright & Nima Skeemz) 8,000 miles away back home in Seattle, written while on the night train to Bangalore, India, and recorded in Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India. It was recorded while I was severely sick from food poisoning (caused two months into my trip, after being convinced by my Indian friends to try KFC for the ﬁrst time in my life). Side Note: While their reputation is subpar in the United States, both KFC and McDonalds are held in high regard as “middle-class” restaurants in parts of the world such as India and China. You will see young couples going on dates at KFC.
For those that have been following my travels via Twitter, Instagram and such… I appreciate you all. Everyday my experiences are reminding me of how blessed I am, and keeping you updated on this adventure is really important to me. Getting access to consistend internet has made it tough to send updates, but his new website should help, and so should the new music about my experience. Expect more in the near future, but for now I hope you enjoy “Old Him”!
