Naked Future is today, it is the unforgotten, the smoke that clears and the crashing waves.
Sometimes we don’t want to see… sometimes the sun is too bright.
Sometimes the truth can be sweet even when it hurts.
Naked Future is when you’re ready to be you, to hide no more.
The Sunshine In My Head album was the sedative but Naked Future is the cure.
Naked Future is current and real.
We Are Just Pebbles On A Beach, but Don’t You Say A Word. And If It’s Okay just to feel like a number, You Better Shuttup. Personally I Believe we should Sit Down because I Am So In Love With You, even though you feel you’re No Good, you could be Sitting On Top The World.
Naked Future will leave you feeling relieved and alive.
Sometimes we need to let it out and sometimes music is that source of freedom.
I needed to write this album and you needed to hear it.
Thank you with all my heart.
I am just an artist and it is the people who have shown me love that are responsible for this album. You are my heart and my soul.
