Brain XP is a positive musical representation of my life as I have battled and continue to battle with my mental health struggles. This album goes through my ups and my downs showcasing the true reality that teens with mental disorders face. Each song on Brain XP has a story. I personally wrote all the lyrics for the songs in my room at home without any knowledge that I would one day be able to record them and turn them into the most incredible project I have ever created. I cannot believe what my guitar, a few pads of paper, and a pencil could do for me. Music is my outlet, and the songs on Brain XP express that. Each song on Brain XP has a feeling associated with it. If you are feeling sad, happy, confused, or misplaced, there is something for you on this album. Brain XP was made to help myself, but along the way, I realized how much it can help others, especially teens who struggle like I do because of the stigma of mental illness. It sends the message that there really is no such thing as mental illness because truly we are all Brain XP. We are not crazy, and we are not alone. This album invites people into my world, which has had much darkness but has been balanced out by all the light. For me, coping is the hardest part of living with a mental disorder, but listening to music and creating music makes it much easier. I hope my album inspires you and brings you to a place in life where you are proud to call yourself Brain XP.
