Today he posted the following on facebook to show his gratitude; Being a fully independent artist is tough. No label money, no PR team, just a vision and the belief that others will find some truth in what you do. Along this journey, I’ve been blessed enough to work with a team of insanely talented and inspiring individuals. Yesterday’s release of “Sagetron” marked a new phase of this journey. With the release of “Sagetron”, we (anyone and everyone who has ever worked with or supported this journey) made a statement that art can be made accessible; that creativity, ingenuity, passion and organic/true support is all we need to succeed and thrive. A big thank you to everyone who supports, this is just the beginning, thank you for allowing me to make my noise! Watch, listen, experience and SHARE the latest, every bit of support goes a long way…
