From 2005-2015, I've released 4 official Orange Drink albums with a total of 30 songs on them. I struggled with depression and suicidal ideation and it directly affected my music career. I was wracked with self-doubt. Over the past years, I've made huge strides in my personal life and my self-esteem. Last year, I saw that Weekly Beats 2016 was happening. I thought to myself, "Can I accomplish anything I set my mind to? What if I just tried to write a song a week, just to see what will happen?"
52 weeks later, here we are! I have almost doubled my career output in one year. I can't thank you all enough for your time, energy, comments, feedback, and the personal effort you put in towards your own music. You all have inspired me so much.
