The name “Before I Return To Dust” is an acknowledgement that we won’t be here forever. We live our lives as if we’re going to last forever, but things never really work out that way. We all know we will be gone eventually, but we don’t know exactly when. And once you step away from living your life in autopilot and start thinking about it, it’s unsettling.

It was with this mindset that this EP came to life. It’s a reminder of how fragile things are, and how we should always follow our hearts and keep on doing those things we believe in without ever compromising.

The time to do all those things we’ve always wanted is now. We might not have another chance. Time’s ticking.
