I'm Jordan (PANDAstar)
I write music with a Gameboy, and have been doing so since 2010.
FOUND is my most recent journey which was all created using LittleSoundDJ.
These last two years have been quite the struggle, and this album is what I have to show for each chapter. Some of you may recognize some tracks as they are remakes of older songs. I do this because it shows not only how much I grow musically, but also as a person. These songs were wrote during specific times in my life, and in order to remake, I have to re-visit them. Each track tells a story, and like recording thoughts in a journal, this is how I preserve the good and bad memories.
"I crumbled into hate from a hard and lonely break-up." - 3OFSWRDZ
"I lived out of a hotel making minimum wage, but barely affording anything including food." - INFLICTION
"I fell into drug abuse and a dark depression which almost killed me." - THANAtopsis
"I was then saved by those who love me." - DELIRIUM
"I found new adventure and a new love in my life." - Blanket Burrito
But most importantly, "I've gathered enough strength to love myself again." - FOUND
These are only examples of some of the songs, and what they are to me.
I hope everyone enjoys this album, and maybe you will find a bit of yourselves in it as well.
Good and bad.
You aren't alone, and this album shows I've found you as well.
I'd like to thank so many people who have guided me these last two years.
First off, my supportive girlfriend who always pushed and believed in my music. Kawaii 8Bit for making this album possible in the ways above the digital world. Jason Doss from Square Therapy who not only mastered this album, but is one of my best friends, as well as his girlfriend Serita, they both are the most amazing people you'd ever meet.
I'd love to thank Glenn Dubois, Adam Martinez, and Claudia Yvette for being so supportive during such rough and dark times in my life. Anthony (Nonfinite) for rescuing me from the hotel, and helping me find love in music again. Hoodie and Chip-mama of course! They drove hours to save my family from a car accident, and I had never even met them prior to that event. And then the fans who have supported me with donations or sent me amazing messages which have saved me on numerous occasions. I save all of them and re-read them when I feel low.
So many people had such a huge impact on my life within these last two years, and if I haven't named you, I'm sorry. I'm forever grateful and owe my life to all of you.
Thank you all for existing.
