MESSAGE FROM ALEKSI
This album was over two years in the making. It began on a summer tour back in 2019. The band and I played some of my dream festivals that year and I felt inspired to write melodies and lyrics. I was hoping to record the album in time for the next round of summer tours, but as we all know, COVID forced everyone to change their plans. I moved back home to my parents house at first, back to Montreal from New York, and threw myself into planning the album.
With funding from Canada Council and Factor and later CALQ and help from some of the most talented people I know, I was able to create the album as I had envisioned it--as a bilingual, audio-visual experience. I sincerely hope that you enjoy it.
Thanks again for taking the time to listen. It really means a lot to me.
