Father’s Day without Dad

Posted on Updated on

There’s nothing wrong with Father’s Day. Every day should be Father’s Day. And Mother’s Day, for that matter. As everyone celebrates Father’s Day this year, this is instead the first Father’s Day that my Dad is not here. There are probably millions (or billions) of other people who have lost their father and can’t celebrate or even look at this day the same way.

Being able to buy gifts for my Dad and seeing his happiness this day was truly an honor, and one that I will never get to experience again.

Saying that I love my Dad goes way beyond posting his pic on Facebook, or changing my profile pic to a one that includes him, or saying a platonic thing like “Love you Dad/Miss you!” and then going right back to being a careless, disobedient, person who brings no value to society and to mankind.

Instead, honor your Dad, whether he is here or not. By being a good, respectful, upstanding person. A person of character and value. And most importantly, one who offers something positive to society in order to make it a better place. Guaranteed if you do these things, your Dad will always be happy with you. He could ask for no less.

I’ll continue to try to be just that. Happy Father’s Day to my Dad, and all those who have lost theirs.

Thought you all might like a listen. This is the first track, titled Prevail, from the new album Eternity.

Discography rename

Posted on Updated on

My discography rename, particularly for the artwork, has been completed to change all my albums away from my pen name (NuwrayN) to my artist name, J. Park. It’s in distribution right now, and should become generally available inside a month.

You can listen to my entire discography here in the meantime.

A track from my new album

Here is the track Unexpected Destiny, off my new album If You Were Here.

A track from City of Lights: Oriental Magnetism

Posted on Updated on

Take a listen to one of the full tracks from my new album, City of Lights. The name of the song is Oriental Magnetism. I’m sure that by listening to it, you’ll know why I named it such.

The inspiration behind this song was actually quite a surprise to myself. I didn’t realize I had ideas or feelings like the ones I did, and it manifested into this song.

Hope you enjoy it as much as I did making it!

Updated site

Posted on Updated on

I updated some pages on the site and fixed the Music page. I noticed that some of the music was not available in its full format, which would have conflicted with the album on Bandcamp, so I reuploaded all of it. You can listen to or buy in its full format over at Bandcamp now. Also, I’ve begun artwork on the first of the two new albums to be released later this year.

2 albums done

Posted on Updated on

Believe it or not, I just finished yet another album. I had one waiting in the wings, but couldn’t stop the creative ocean. Needless to say, there are over 20 brand new songs spread over both these albums.

I’m now going to stop creating and start promoting. I think I’ve got enough material to keep me busy for the next two years. I’m totally serious.

Stay tuned. The best is yet to come.
