First 🏳️‍🌈 Press Story

A time for honesty

While the songs from One of The Ones, my debut album, were written about relationships I had with other guys, I had not officially come out on The Apprentice. I had not even really spoken candidly about it during the XM Cafe interviews. But if I had learned anything from the past eight record labels that didn’t work out, it was time for me to be courageous. It was time for me to trust that who I am is good enough – that I can be my authentic self and maybe even find that I’m not alone in this world. So, Brandon Voss and I had a short interview for the December “Holiday Music Issue” of HX Magazine, a NYC-based publication geared towards the LGBTQ+ community. It was a short story, but a big sigh of relief. I had found others that understood the deeper meaning behind my music. And man, did we have a lot to talk about.
