Indie-pop project Journey to TheView makes his return with self-produced single All the Same February 7th.
Journey to the View is the project of LA based singer-songwriter, Marcus Jay Allen. Bursting onto the scene back in 2019 with the release of his self-produced debut single Strange Terrain, Marcus finds inspiration in the metaphorical comparison of real uncharted adventures, and ones that take place inward, on the path of self-discovery.
Using his music as a platform to maintain a conversation on mental health, Journey to the View finds solace in song writing and is not afraid to address and share his personal encounters with mental health.
Speaking more on the track, Journey to the View explains:
“All the Same” is a hopeful, hip-hop influenced, heart-felt acoustic love letter to a family member. I was inspired to write the song when news hit my family that a family member was suffering from depression. At 21-years-old, he was at cross-roads, overwhelmed by life decisions. He couldn’t commit to his dreams, from fear of choosing the wrong path. My message is all about finding your own way in life. Rejecting labels and breaking stereotypes.”
Taking his cues from the silky production of acts like Tame Impala and The Japanese House– Journey to the View has crafted his own style of gripping and insightful indie-pop.
