My father once called me a chameleon. He said i blend in with my surroundings. He was right, I cater to my audience within the constraints of staying true to myself. Astrologically, i'm a Gemini. As pointed out by an interesting lady on a plane, my exact birth points to a creative, conflicting life. Today, my career deals death, but i yearn to heal the world. Maybe they're one in the same? This album represents me accepting me. I think we're all angels and demons at different moments in our lives. Some are more extreme than others. Who wants to be luke warm/room temp anyways? The "Full Metal Jacket" helmet graces the cover. What more fitting image for the message. Humans build and destroy, heal and kill, love and hate; it's all within us. May our correct choices outnumber our wrong ones....
This is somewhat of a "greatest strikes" album, strikes that hopefully "hit". I wanted to sum up my work after "The Meeting Place" (on iTUNES!). Some songs have already been blessed with enough exposure, so I chose not to re-release them here. There are some duplicates that I re-mastered and made part of this work. These are the songs that represent Charizma Davinci, where I'm at tonight. Thanks for listening!
This closes an extensive, totally-worth-it chapter in my musical journey, and opens a new one. Time is precious, and we mustn't waste aggression. RAW DATA!
released 16 June 2012
