“It’s the greatest love story never told. The record explains a previous situation that I was in, but creates an opportunity for my story to actually be heard. Too often, we don’t get to vocalize our side of what happened. Sometimes pride gets in the way, sometimes we just don’t know how to say what needs to be said. The record is full of unapologetic apologies that explain a man’s bag full of broken hearts.” – Kanayo King - Unsung Melody
