Genuine Is That One Word
I don’t know much about this genre of music, overall it’s never appealed to me let alone become my go to. But I gotta say, with every new release of songs, KW seems to be on a trek of self discovery, of exile, beyond the streets, beyond the seas, beyond the trees and beyond the desert, in an effort to find something, discover something, unearth something, personal things. Seemingly, fans and critics are welcome yet not necessary to his purpose.
Some might interpret his works and words as those of a self serving egomaniac, his occasional foolish outpourings do support that notion. From the sidelines it’s interesting to watch as he continues to mature. His ego, his fears, fears that are/were the likening of a child, are no longer fully in control. He has the courage to strike forward, diverting away from what is comfortable. A true artist I would say.
I very much look forward to more of his projects. Hit or miss, this is his journey. As such, one can find comfort and strength when it seemingly parallels our own journey, or choose to criticize in an exercise of self importance.
Keep in mind the effort. If the effort is genuine, there is genuine results. If I only had one word to describe his overall works and specifically this project, genuine is that one word.
