WE WERE BORN TO GLORY is inspired by the idea that all life is born with the potential for glory. I therefore distilled my journey into individual songs that are emotional snapshots of life through my lens as a human being. Of which I am viewing not only my own life (past, present and future) but the world at large. It is a celebration of experience.
Musically I set out to make a timeless pop rock record like the albums I loved when I was growing up – all the while keeping my voice as an artist and staying true to modern times. I am still contemporary, and I have certainly not made a period piece. However, I wanted to take myself on an emotional journey through song, like I experienced when I was first discovering music. My lyrical sensibility had to remain intact and honesty of message as well. The reason I loved those old records so much is that everything had a melody. Not just the vocals, but the bass lines, the guitar lines, the drum fills – everything had a purpose. Nothing was superfluous. Each note had intent. I also wanted to remain current and embrace modern colours, so I have incorporated drum loops and ambient creations.
