Letting Go Before I Begin
I wrote this album attempting to do just what the title says. I've spent the past years in drama that rivals the movies. I've been running and hiding, both figuratively and literally, trying to escape from a situation that quickly grew larger than myself and beyond my control. Threats, slander, high-speed car chases, and degradation of mental health are just some of the story. This album is my journal from those years - the songs are what it felt like. I feel I owe it to my friends and those listening to let go of these things that have hung over my head, and move on to what I can control, and what I choose to do, not what I am forced to do. The album is my first step. - Jesse Gimbel.
