“Old Soul in a Young Body” 2 Year Anniversary

“Old Soul in a Young Body” Released 1/27/2015

2 years ago today I put out my debut album “Old Soul in a Young Body”

 While creating this project I challenged myself to make a body of work filled with the most personal and honest music I could possibly write. I want to thank you guys for all the support I’ve received from this album. The feedback, streams, downloads, purchases, etc.  It all means more than you can imagine. When I put out the album a part of me thought this was it. The one that was gonna “pop” so to speak. I had this fantasy idea built up in my head that I would put out the album, someone would share it, the right person would hear it, and I would wake up with a million views. Which of course didn’t happen and was totally naive of me to think. So for a while I was upset. Feeling like I put out something so close to my heart and it fell on deaf ears. Looking back I see that’s not the case. Maybe it wasn’t as many ears as I would’ve dreamed of. But, the ones that listened to it, really listened to it, and are still listening. 

Two years later it has over:

  • 70k plays on Soundcloud 
  • 20k views on YouTube 
  • 30k streams on Spotify 
  • Shoot 4 The Sky video at 80k 
  • So Determined video at 11k
  • and more

 But with all that aside, by far the best part is the multiple messages you guys have sent me saying how a song from this album has helped you through a tough time or a difficult situation. That, at the end of the day, means more than any view count or stream revenue.

 I learned a lot about patience this past year. Instead of being so unhappy that the album didn’t have as many plays as I wish it did, I looked at what it does have. That’s when I realized it’s all happening. This is the process. Of course I would’ve loved to do crazy numbers overnight. But that’s unrealistic. Things take time. Rome wasn’t built in a day and it also wasn’t built without a lot of hard work. To everyone who has supported me on this journey I really can’t thank you enough. I know I haven’t released much music since the album came out. I just want to let everyone know that a bunch of new music is coming this year. As well as new videos, the podcast & other things that we’ll get into more detail about when it’s time. Thanks again. Let’s continue to grow!

young man with big dreams
wrote my first rap at eleven
been in the lab since sixteen
now I’m blessed to be 21
at times I thought it would never come
cuz I’ve witnessed first hand it don’t get to happen to everyone
this world just takes so many young
old soul in young body
wont stop till my name ring bells
like you’re checking in at the front lobby, hotel desk
get a room might smash yo chick till the hoe yell yes
writing like I want a nobel prize
learn the name D O M S
Doms Gauge, my times awaiting
on my grizzly you hibernating
if these lames get in my way
tell em run for the hills like Iron Maiden
I am Raiden because I’m shocking the game get it
stay grinding no skate park bout to take charge like I paid credit
this is now a conversation with a constellation
nah I’m just a star in the making making you look
telling the world my story this is a page in my book
I’ve been coping with emotions thats why i’m blazing this kush
and I’m day dreaming, straight scheming
trying to find a way out
been working hard shooting 4 the stars
seeing how this life gone play out
anticipating just whats in store
bout to win and then up the score
if you just give me a shot then I’m gonna get what i’m gunning for
I’m running towards the top
and I cant wait till I get there
looking for a breath of life or at least a breath of fresh air
I roam alone when its late at night
go for broke till I pay the price
theres no cheat codes in this game of life
so you just gotta learn how to play it right
