A message from New York City based artist Justin Masters:
"Well… here we are. 17 years in the making…
The songs and stories of the times I’ve spent in my adult life since moving to New York City in 2000.
I’ve always been in bands but except for a few occasions, it’s always been playing other people’s songs. Playing guitar following someone else’s vision of what the band should be.
I just needed something completed. Something to show for all those countless times inspiration hit. It took hours…days…years…just to get it right.
There are moments of hope to be found…but most of these stories were written in between various self-destructive phases throughout my 20’s and 30’s. I can honestly say I know what it’s like to have nothing. Then to have it all. And almost lose it all. And it’s right here in these songs.
One big THANK YOU to my family, friends, bandmates, co-workers and everyone else that I’ve met in this life.
All songs written, produced and performed by Justin Masters. To help complete this album, I called on friend and former bandmate Jason Harrison to play drums.
