Music has always been a big part of how I’ve handled my own mental health issues. I started this journey over 20 years ago, and I’m not planning on stopping any time soon. I write what I think, what I feel, and what I care about. I use music to deal with the frustration, depression, and self-hate that I’ve struggled with for decades. Music has helped me tremendously, and it’s a core part of this site.
When I started with music, it was hard to find instrumentals that I could use that fit what I was feeling. To help others who are struggling mental health issues, I’ve out together instrumental albums that you can download in order to put your pain to a creative use. Sing, rap, or just listen if you would like. It doesn’t matter if you’re good or bad, and you don’t even need to record it. The goal is to use the music to help yourself get better.
I released the album You Have A Future on October 10th, 2022. It was intended to be a 3-4 track EP, but ended up being 8 tracks long. I ended up writing half the album on the same day, including the title track.
