Alright guys, I might as well squash any rumors floating around by filling you all in.. 

The guys in issues and I have parted ways. In the past few months, my priority has become more about my education, and less about composing music.
 
As tours, band members, and ventures have come and passed, I’ve noticed how badly I could have used a mentor when I was younger and seeing my first contracts and bullshit management offers. 

This said, my passion became less about advancing my own music career, and more about looking out for my friends who are seeing the things I first saw in my first few years as a musician.

Simply put, I feel my place in music is strictly in the business, and not on stage. 

Hope you all know the guys and I are on good terms and I’ll be doing some work for issues behind the scenes, and hopefully coming on a tour or two for fun. Love you all! xoxo
