Album Notes
Be the best you that you can be, and don’t let anyone or anything hold you back.

When I first decided to make a new album, I was still recovering from a very sudden and unexpected life change caused by divorce. Little did I know then how much that would teach me about life, about myself, and about the world that surrounds us all. I finally realized how amazing and loving my friends and family are. I realized what strength really is. And, I found myself. I realized that true happiness and joy can be created from the inside out, and nothing should stand in the way of that. True, we all have (and live in the middle of) unhappy, sad, and difficult times, but we can either let it consume us, or we can grow from it. I chose to grow, with the help of a lot of prayer, my family, my friends, and music.

This album is written, recorded, produced, and mastered by me, with most of the songs written and recorded in the living room of my apartment. Every song tells a small piece of the story that I have been building for many years now. The album itself is the most current chapters of my life, capturing some very deep and emotional thoughts, along with the joy and happiness that I have learned to appreciate so very much, especially during the past year. I want to take listeners on a journey through time and space in a unique way that, I hope, will make you want to close your eyes and paint the story that you hear in your own mind. This project is not jazz, it’s not soul or R&B, or any specific genre. It’s my story, told totally from my perspective, from my mind to your ears. Who is Monte Skelton? Grab a chair, sit back and relax, and I’ll tell you my story.
