Oscar's words about his music. 'My music is a soulful illustration of my experiences in life and love. I've transversed both the depths and the heights of love. Both extremes where nothing else matters. When I finally experienced the loss of true love, I tried to escape without putting my emotions on the line. I lived behind a mask and like a vegas show star, I lived only for the moments in the light with strangers surrounding me. Writing this album was a way to put together all of my different experiences from the best to the worst. As the pieces began to fit and the words took shape, I realized that I had been jaded by the image that I had created of myself. My music became my therapy and allowed me to break down the walls where I had hidden my emotions. My heart was slowly freed. I no longer needed to live the show life, I no longer need that temporary 'Vegas Love'.'
