To fully embrace seasons of change we learn to encourage self transformation. Never stifling our creative process.
Yet during times of struggle, some get thrown into survival mode and a fight or flight response is activated, leaving a demand for an alternative identity. If we create an substitute persona, maybe that character has a better chance at survival. And so create a persona I did.
Several years ago, the personification of strength, fight and resilience was created in the name "Falcon Rhodes".
Through perseverance, determination and years of spiritual growth, this persona no longer resonated authenticity as an artist but was only there to camouflage a current reality.
Since then, the mask has been removed. The skin shed. The burden bared. But the music remained.
I believe we all share a desire to be someone else at some point in our lives in order to soften the blow of trials we are given. Yet it is through those trials God reveals his greater purpose for our time here.
