Album Notes
1. All This Time - It’s about pushing love away, making yourself lose in love by not trying or believing you’re worthy of great love. A lack of entitlement and seeking love and approval. ‘You get what you get and you say thank you’ instead of ‘you get what you raise your hand for.’ Giving more validation to other’s opinions of you, whether a boyfriend or father.

2. Do Me Right - “You said it wasn’t our time, but it’s hers just fine. Pretend I never loved you, pretend that you’re fine.” Being the other woman in hopes of getting an ex back who doesn’t decide because he doesn’t have to. Who hides behind exes and the past and doesn’t take responsibility for his actions. Falling for the broken ones and not listening or learning soon enough. Selling yourself short, because for whatever reason you want this person’s love rather than believing you deserve the world. Hustling yourself - for your own worth, love and respect.

3. Tell You Why (cuida su paso) - “Better watch your boundaries, girl, can’t just cross your heart and hope to die. Better watch your step, boy, can’t just cross the line, tell you why.” It’s about boundaries and being careful. “Watch your step,” Psychological stalker song, guy’s sitting alone at home, fighting the urge to strike again, “will he fall and will she fight.”

4. Here We Go - cheating song, an emotional and physical affair, not wanting it to end. “Here we go, once again, take it slow, timing is everything.” Timing is like invoking the 5th when it comes to relationships, so often the excuse or reason for something not working out. Is timing a grand hustle? Or are we hustling ourselves by choosing people we ultimately can’t have? Or could it have worked out if we’d not accepted less than 100 per cent?

5. When I’m with You - straight up sweet love song about no one. No person in mind, just the idea of being in love and enjoying it. Is love always elusive? Are great love and relationships the grandest schemes? Or is it the contrary? Do we sabotage and limit through our beliefs?

6. Once in a While – after hooking up a few times with a friend, despite not wanting more, the guy feels pressured and gets ahead of himself. “you feel pressure, you can’t keep this up, you said, but I didn’t ask you to be anything”

I had thought to call the album “love:fiction” – as all the songs are about misguided or failed love or connections, except When I’m With You – which is sweet but there’s no object of affection, so the love is an illusion and not real. But I feel love when I sing it! And we must mind our words carefully.

Why “The Hustle”?
We hustle for money, time, self-worth. Sometimes we are hustled by friends, family, colleagues, bosses. Yes, we are hustled by and as a society. Our self-worth is wrapped up in our survival, which depends on making money. The rat race is dehumanizing and isolating, it’s lonely at the top. But society moving away from basing success on material gain alone. Success is now increasingly defined by you and me and we are increasingly aware and empowered. Ultimately, the biggest hustle of all is the one we trick ourselves with. That is to say: low self-worth and self-limiting beliefs. We hustle ourselves out of more, better, going for what we truly want. We don’t ask for more. Not believing we are enough is the most dangerous hustle. I want to believe we are upon a time where we can stand up for ourselves and others, claim self-respect and act respectfully towards outwards. It’s time to live and lead good lives. Lose what needs to be lost and live a life you love and life in your own way.
