The Whole Story Behind The Title Of My Forthcoming Debut Studio Album
If you’ve been following me on my personal social media profile on Facebook for the past few years, you’d be aware that I didn’t only attempt to commit suicide about three times, I also had to overcome a very huge battle with depression and anxiety. In addition to that period and the aforementioned incidents, I have also had an on and off relationship with music production for way more ten years now.
As you can imagine, there is a whole bunch of moving parts involved, however, it has mainly been a tedious uphill battle mostly influenced by a few unfriendly personal experiences essentially regarding my ears and how I constantly had to keep a fairly safe distance away from average PA systems, standard studio monitor speakers, and low-quality headphones, among other things.
It has honestly been an incredibly crazy period. If you ask, it always used to feel like virtually everything was just not coming together. No matter what I tried I just couldn’t get the puzzle pieces to fall together in one place. If you have (at any point in your life) also suffered from depression, you would agree that most of the time it often feels like almost everything is always out of place, awkwardly positioned and constantly falling apart.
At least that had been the case in my long untold story until I finally took to social media to publicly announce that I was not feeling myself at that moment and I was feeling very suicidal at the time.
Some of the people were obviously shocked and some of them were honestly not that surprised, yet all of them basically gave me a few valuable pointers and, to cut a long story short, I finally got to climb up that mountain and eventually got to make it to the other side in so many different pieces.

Fast forward to the current year (twenty twenty), I’ve honestly never felt more at peace in my life. I have primarily managed overcome depression and it mostly feels like everything is just exactly where it needs to be. I still don’t know how the universe (and by extension, GOD) has been making it happen, but it finally seems like everything is gradually coming together and that is why I chose to settle for this here title for my debut studio album.
It is “All Together Now” and this title is not just a typical name for an overdue music project. It is an unprecedented testimony of my life, evidence of GOD’s work and a loud statement about my triumph over a very dark period and multiple experiences with mental illness, among other things.
Moreover, it is a personal message to my old self and an open letter written by the best version of me. It is all those many things and so much more. Far more than anything though, #ATN is a personalized body of work that basically serves as an indication that I am not in a million pieces anymore. I’m at peace now and I’m content, all because everything has finally been coming together as it should – one piece of the puzzle at the time.
Having said that, I’m so excited to inform you about the whole story behind the official title for this here debut project and I can’t wait to share with you what I’ll been working for the project on over the next few weeks (if not months).
