I chose to call this mixtape “Destroy” because it is a word that really encompasses what my music and goal is about. Although many would take ‘destroy’ and the act of destruction as a negative, it has a long history in punk culture. Punks rebelled against the social norms of the day urging change through their destruction. I have that old school Vivian Westwood shirt that says “Destroy” depicting the queen, a swastika and a cross with Jesus. It means destroy government, fascism and religion. But for me as an artist I am trying to destroy not only these but stereotypes about sexual orientation, race, gender, class or background as well.
