King Roach "Begin Again" (2012)

We got engaged on March 7th. It didn’t take long for me to see that I’ll always need Brenna in my life. Recovering from the ego burns of my journey as a frontman, we’d lay in bed, taking the shape of a pretzel, listening to the songs of “If Not Now, When?”. The wounds of Incubus didn’t hurt as much. I had heeded the advice I was given on that faithful day in SoHo and did something original. In the midst of a major turning point in my life, a collection of songs would emerge that changed the course of my performance style. During a time when I’d always find a reason to toast a drink, drug experimentation became a part of my “once in a while” routine. Traveling deep within my consciousness, I spent many nights in thought, crafting the words that would find me into lyrics. The recordings are demo quality, but I didn’t know any better. This was a time in which gigs can be booked without an EPK, streaming hadn’t yet dominated the industry, and any decent demo can get you a hole-in-the-wall. With a long history of DIY, I would become lost in the process, taking on every role, regardless of my level of expertise. What would come to be was entitled “Begin Again”, marking a new era in my life and looking enthusiastically toward to the future.
