Before The Quarter only.jpg
 

DEAR YOU, 

Hey. I'm kelechi. This is Before the Quarter. And that means a lot of things. It's an album. It's a moment. But most importantly it's a letter. Or a group of letters. To myself or to you.

 When I turned 23, things started changing. People. Money. Time. I got hit with this fear of my Quarter Life Crisis. The Quarter. Who am I gonna be at 25? Where am I gonna be? How will I get there?

These letters are answers to those questions. Or questions for them. Or simply comfort in not knowing. I'm 24 and these songs are what i was thinking Before the Quarter.
