I’ve been making music for thirteen years and I’ve dabbled with everything under the sun. I’ve experimented with lots of different sounds and said a lot of different things. Only now in the last year have I been able to tap into the most genuine and true voice that is mine. In teaming up with PledgeMusic, I can share the whole process first-hand with you and bring the most exciting LOYA album yet to life.
I truly believe everyone has something good to offer the world in a way that only they can, because it’s them, and it’s unique. Komaglass is undoubtedly the most “LOYA thing” that I’ve ever created, which is why I’m more thrilled about these songs than anything I’ve done before. I finally gave myself permission creatively to do whatever I wanted and it is within this space that I’ve created the most unique and exciting body of work LOYA has ever been attached to. There’s no filler on this album, it’s all pure and from my heart. Sonically it borrows from so many different directions because it’s a expression of myself, and I’m not a one dimensional human, just like you’re not a one dimensional human either. This is the beauty of art and life.
Lyrically these songs are inspired from my direct experiences and they’re experiences most of us can all identify with too: Koma is the Icelandic word for arrival. The title comes from the alien sci-fi movie of the same name, which is based off of a novelette by Ted Chang called “Story of Your Life”: it’s all a metaphor for knowing that an experience will hurt you and be painful, but going through with it anyway because it’s your destiny. Komaglass is my experience and it’s also all of ours at the same time.
As a non-touring and non-performing artist, I rarely am afforded the opportunity to meet those who are invested in and in love with my music. PledgeMusic is the only platform that not only allows you preorder and pledge to create the album but ALSO allows you be with me every step of the process, from going through my demos with me, to tracking in the studio, and see everything that goes into making LOYA. Any pledge you make comes with the All-Access Pass that allows you view my continuous update of the whole Komaglass project. This is an experience I deeply anticipate sharing with you. Thank you for your support.
