Release Year: 2012
"I moved to Miami in need of a new beginning. In 2009, I spent almost a year in a rehab center and I learned for the first time how to speak about my emotions. It was almost like learning how to walk again. A beautifully positive experience.
I got out and stayed sober for the next 2 years. I started writing almost as soon as I got to Miami but it was different. It was the first time I was on my own, musically and personally. I started writing my own lyrics, a job that I always left to my ex-bandmate and childhood best friend, Luis Del Valle (Buscabulla). For the first time there was no second opinion.
Looking back, this was the beginning of me finding “my voice”. To my surprise, the songs that I wrote were honest and profound. Everything I was writing about was introspective and I suddenly felt the need to "move" people. So I made a pop record in which all of the songs could be singles in their own way and I went as poppy as I could. *laugh* I wanted to reach as many hearts as possible. It’s an album of hope and moving forward." - Rick Moon
