Listen to the music, write what you’re feeling or state what you’re feeling first off. I let my spirit just sing so I freestyle the first couple of bars and it’s incredible! It was a point in my life when music and love were battling for the same space and it was kind of hard to make the choice because you didn’t want to lose this person but you didn’t want to lose yourself. That’s who I am from [w[when I was] child, so that moment in my life created “Charlene.” AH: I didn’t drink after that (laughs)!
I be like, “Wow, that’s beautiful” and it’s exactly, kinda what I wanted to say.

AH: I’m a man who loves people, life, travel and I’ve been through a lot. I’ve been through a series of events and I still remain strong and I still have a passion to heal. I’m slightly introverted but I’m very outgoing (chuckles)… AH: Well, you know from being an artist yourself that things change.Each creative process has its own beginning and ending, the way you approach it is different. If you’re in a place and the music is already there then you listen to the music and see what the music is saying and then you try to be honest with the music and whatever story it’s telling you, you help capture it.
