“I Got You” is a song about the power of kindness and the value of support systems in our life.  Many of us struggle with all kinds of challenges and are feeling beat up by the insane events around us that we seem to have no control over.  This is not unusual, but in the current difficult and chaotic times, it has become increasingly apparent, and often unbeknownst to us, that our mental health is the first casualty.  The most valuable resource we have that can see us through these times is the kindness and support of others.  Just lending a hand to a person in need, be it your family, friend or even a stranger, can lift someone from the darkness and might even save someone’s life. Having someone you can count on is the best medicine for almost every trouble.  



“Plead The Fifth” is a special EP that I wrote and produced for summer 2021 release. It focuses on our collective vulnerability as a people living in the 21st century.  We are seeing an increasingly complex world around us with technology playing a role we are yet to fully grasp.  As our material living standards continue to improve and as globalisation builds an increasingly connected and technological society, we are struggling to match this with social and individual growth, and we are watching many fundamental values slowly being erased and our world sink into environmental catastrophe.  We celebrate superficiality and pretentiousness while allowing ourselves to be manipulated; hatred and discrimination seem to be spreading; wealth has become the most important metric of success; and as everyone wants to shout their story, nobody takes time to listen anymore.  Against this backdrop, we retain our fundamental struggles as we search for love, success, and acceptance, and despite all the chaos, much of what makes us human is still shared across generations and borders.  “Plead the Fifth” concedes these difficulties we face, and without judgement accepts that this is a world we have built ourselves.  And by extension, “Plead the Fifth” tells us we shouldn’t let anyone judge us, and we definitely shouldn’t judge ourselves – if things are not working quite as they should, it might be because the world is a little crazy.  The EP empowers and frees the individual: Don’t let negative people drag you down and call them out when they do because they don’t have an edge over you; stick to your goals and aspirations, whatever they may be, and take time to enjoy the beauty around you, and accept your failures and mistakes for what they are, without anyone taking you down for them.  Overall, “Plead the Fifth” concedes that it is not easy being human.  Despite all that, life is something to be celebrated and we should make the most of it.
