The epic battle of Batman Vs Superman hits theaters today, which raises the impossible question, who’s side are you on?

Here’s a great article from Bustle featuring the movie soundtrack.

Keeping up with the superhero theme, my new single “Harvey Dent”, dropped this week. Inspired by the DC Comic villain Two-Face, “Harvey Dent” is a dark, moody tale of deception. We all know ‘that’ guy – the one that is sweet on the surface but can he be trusted? The chorus really says it all: He’ll never make a groom / And he’s never a gent / All the days together / Won’t be time well spent // At best he’s a ruse / With full intent / To use and confuse / He’s Harvey Dent!

Check out the full lyrics and song below. Enjoy!

Harvey Dent
He waits for the right moment
Strikes at the opportune time
On the surface it all seems perfect
Underneath, it’s all a lie

A smile is the best you’re given
But it never reaches his eyes
He’s good, he’ll be sure to tell you
But it’s just a thin disguise

Chorus
He’ll never make a groom
And he’s never a gent
All the days together
Won’t be time well spent

At best he’s a ruse
With full intent
To use and confuse
His mind’s all bent

Verse 2
His words will make you feel safer
But his motives are always unkind
Maybe he wants to be better
(but) Compassion’s in short supply.

In his world this is how it’s done now
He won’t fight by your side
His soul is truly broken
His heart, completely blind.

If you want to stay a part of his story
Your future doesn’t look bright
You’re just a mere accessory
To delusions in his mind.

He is the only hero
In the chapters of his life
His vision is rosy and clouded
No hope he’ll see the light.

Verse 3
You’ve come to the final stages
Here’s a word of advice
Walk right out of these pages
Turn away, and don’t think twice.

The view up ahead is gorgeous
You’ve got your own verses to write
Not much left in him to care for
If love’s your chosen prize.

Chorus
He’ll never make a groom
And he’s never a gent
All the days together
Won’t be time well spent

At best he’s a ruse
With full intent
To use and confuse
He’s Harvey Dent!

Singing In The New Year

New year, new music. 2015 was an amazing year for my personal music career. I released four new tracks and pushed myself to sing at more gigs in the city. Can’t wait to see what 2016 brings for my work and passion.

Music feeds my soul, which is why I love finding new hidden gems by truly talented artists. Here’s a countdown of the top 10 songs of 2015 that shaped me as an artist. Which was your most memorable track 2015?

Lady Gaga accepted the great honor of Women of the Year at the ceremony.

With her music, strong business acumen, sense of purpose, and avant-garde style, she broke through the music industry to be immensely successful on her own terms. Despite having gained so much fame and success, her approach to people and fans is down to earth and genuine. She’s heavily involved in giving back to the community and wants to make a difference. She’s truly an inspiring artist and role model.

Festival of Lights

2f733e3f3ad7e7b7d417b2ee40eaff62Diwali, the Indian Festival of Lights, is upon us. Diwali is one of the largest and brightest festivals in India and spiritually signifies the victory of good over evil.

As a kid, I remember lighting lamps and firecrackers, and always being around family and feeling grateful for the good you have in your life.

The lights remind me of a time of warmth, love and good food, shared with close family and friends.

New Song: My Imaginary Friend

With Halloween and Day of the Dead fast approaching, I thought I’d release a song with some creepy chords and undertones to get in the spirit.

“My Imaginary Friend” is a conversation between myself and my imaginary friend. The inspiration for the song came from a long distance relationship I was in that left me feeling desperate and lonely. Love is a complicated emotion and I often would pretend to have conversations throughout the day that, in reality, only existed in my head. The relationship was difficult and toxic and these imaginary conversations made me feel alive, living in a fantasy world I created and controlled. The lyrics were written during long trips and train rides and was an outlet to understand my feelings.

I’m sure many people can relate to this experience and I hope you enjoy. Let me know what you think in the comments.

Happy Halloween!
