This is my debut album, dedicated to my mother. Earlier this year, she passed away from cancer, and to cope with everything I wrote a collection of songs about the stuff I was going through at that time. I really liked the way they turned out, so I recorded them with a friend at his flat in Aro Valley over two days, and called it Cruel World. These songs are about my life in this strange, eventful year of 2014, complete with tales of love, despair, death, and hope.
I'm incredibly proud of this album, and I hope you like it, too.
