2016 has been humbling from January 1st until now.
It's been full of failed/rekindled relationships, ego deaths, and reflection.
I moved (well, ran) from New York and found myself in Northern California this summer.
It was a strange, but also beautiful time.
During the journey, I made a small collection of songs dedicated to God.
I was afraid to release them though because they weren't perfect.
waiting. waiting. Waiting. WAITING. W A I T I N G.
Waiting for the right situation. Waiting for my idealized self to arrive. Waiting for the right partnership. Waiting for the right moment. Waiting for the whirlwind romance. Waiting for everything. Searching for perfection.
I REALIZED IT IS PERFECT THOUGH.
This EP was made in love and sincerity.
Though I stray from the path, I know the destination is closer than ever. All will be well.
IT'S LIT Y'ALL. BROOK IS BACK WITH POWER, LOVE, AND LIGHT.
HERE IS "ONE".
