so yea the @jonahmatranga IG account is goin away for good. i've been meaning to do it for real for a while. who knows what gets in the way (and making songs is more fun lol).
with the @aonelinedrawingis account, i intend to stay focused on music & making stuff & sharing it with you & just being the weirdo that i am.
all my many thoughts on racism, sexism, homophobia, wealth disparity & the many forms of oppression etc still stand, and i will always stand for loving justice & truth in this wild world. i just wanna do it in more fun & effective ways...
and basically, i think i interact with the world best through the music. it's when i'm happiest & healthiest. looking back, i feel a bit naive for getting sucked into all the useless fighting & personal feelings that the networks are increasingly engineered for. and that's ok, that's how we learn.
also, onelinedrawing just feels like my creative heart. even more than my name, oddly. maybe it's kinda my drag. fun to think of it that way.
i woke up this morning thinking about all the name switches & such over the years. i think i do it partly to make sure that anyone who's with me is with me in the present, and is willing to take the ride with me for real... and mostly just bc i'm a little rascal wanderer who loves trying to keep things fresh & (always) new (feb always new song etc out soon btw!)
anyway, i do love being connected with you in all the ways, and i will always do my best to make those points of connection meaningful. that's all that means anything to me, really... so thanks forever. i'm gearing up for a superfun 2022, and i'm happy to be riding with you.
