NYC Stories (Next Level)

The double entendre of the word stories in the album’s title speaks both to the stories of life in the city, and also to the consecutive levels of a building or structure that ascend higher into the sky. But by rising further into the sky the air becomes thinner, colder & the pull of gravity becomes more dangerous-In short the environment becomes more hostile & adverse. Thus it is a metaphor for the overarching album theme of ascension through striving in the face of adversity.
