Flight Risk, clocking in at 10 tracks and playing just over 40 minutes, is also SL’s most cohesive, concise project to date — as well as his most aggressive. “I had a lot of pent up aggression – from my legal situation, from the restrictions it’s put on my life – and the music reflects that,” explains SL. “I wanted listeners to get below the surface, and give them a glimpse of what makes me who I am. I don’t want my audience to just listen to my music; I want them to connect.”
In addition to brash emotion, Flight Risk, SL’s third release over the past six months, is a project that shows continued growth. “The Number 23 was about showing off talent and range, while Pandamonium was reckless emotion, driven by fear, uncertainty, desperation, and confusion,” he explains. ” I’m learning to embrace the chaos and steer my emotions in any creative direction, and Flight Risk is the next step in that progression: embracing the bad and hoping for the best, all while fully expecting it to get worse.”
