It's always amazing when you plan out the year, pray about it and watch how things play out. You either get exactly what you hoped for, get disappointed or get presently surprised with how things turn out.
2016 for me however, was a year of growth in many areas... I set out to finally release music, dive into the world of songwriting(for others) and also make a push as an artist in platforms I'm not usually around. With that, a lot of a great things have happened while others had to be pushed back for good reasons.
With the goal of growing as a songwriter, I've been fortunate enough to write songs in different genres. The first song out since then is "Testimony" by Icha Kavons which as of now won the Best Inspirational song at the 2016 AFRIMA(All African Music Awards), making me an award winning songwriter...crazy!!
Another goal of mine at the top of the year was to perform at a music festival. As of Nov 19th I can gladly say that I have done just that! This year I performed 2 sets at Indie Week, a Music, Film & Tech festival in Toronto along with 200+ bands.
As for where I am and my music: Music is still on the way but as of now the focus is on building a solid team while I continue to write and record new material.
I'll keep you posted on everything I have going on but for now you can keep up with me on social media @rodpurpose.
Thanks for the love and continued support!
