Yeah, Ludaversal is inviting you into my world. I’m definitely getting vulnerable, talking about subject matter I don’t really talk about. One song is called “Ocean Skies”; it’s about my father, with Monica singing on it. It’s talking about his alcoholism. The reason I wanted to finally do that is because I felt like it’s bigger than myself, bigger than my father. There are people out there that can relate—[I want] to encourage those individuals to spend as much time with your parents as you possibly can. Because one day they might be gone. There’s another record called “Grass is Always Greener,” which is definitely personal to me. I think everybody can relate because no matter what you’re doing, you’re always looking at something else like it’s better than what you have.
