Tragedy Has Arisen
Well, everyone, this is a sad time in my life. If you all didn't know my name is Keith Mayo Jr. I'm 21 years old, and I make music. Recently here I have moved out with my new found family consisted of my lovely girlfriend and her 6-year-old son. With that being said NO that is NOT the tragic part. I know some people enjoy saying that "You're too young to be having those types of responsibilities!" In some ways, you're right... In others you don't know anything about me so how do you have the right to comment. I didn't tell you how to live your best life. Alright now that I got that addressed... Continuing on
This month has been an adjustment period for all of us being together, and in all reality, we didn't expect what would come with this new experience. This includes, and was not limited to: Learning how to read everyone's emotions, figuring out pet peeves, making sure we are effective as a team, and the hardest thing of all balancing Work, Life, and most importantly MUSIC. During this month we faced sickness from the FLU, and Houston (The 6-year-old) we believe contracted a stomach bug in which he gave to us. It was my first time seeing more people than just myself suffer through a sickness, and not be able to take care of themselves while they recover. It didn't help that I was also running in, and out of the bathroom myself. I apologize if that is "TMI" but I wanna keep it real.
Fast Forward to now. "Why do we care? Why are you sending out this message? Why does it matter?" To get straight to the point I have hit a very low point in my musical career. I haven't been able to do consistent musical gigs with my bass guitar, and recently my computer reset the music program I was using to make the songs that you all have heard here on #1 Music. "What does that mean" That means that I lost a culmination of 3 years worth of work in 15 minutes. I'm highly frustrated. I want to quit. That isn't within my character though, so that isn't going to happen. I'm slowly but surely revamping my style, flair, and quality and focusing more so on the instrumental side of the music while I cultivate my talent in the art of writing.
This life that we live is full of ups, downs, & U-Turns. Those who decide to navigate based on the wave are the people who can weather the storm. I have been through Typhoons to get to where I am musically, and even further in my daily life as a man. I thank you for bearing with me, and here is a present for your patience.
P.S. This wasn't supposed to be released until I came back as an artist. Share this with your friends, and family if you support myself and the movement I have been dreaming about since I was 7 years old.
