Annual ID



For me, it was a no-brainer to work with Odom, I've been a fan of his work for quite some time. I was first introduced to his work a few years back by my sister and mother. So, given the chance to collaborate with him was a dream-like, humbling experience. I fell in love with the whole album after the first listen. 'Stronger Magic' incited such an undeniable visual reaction within me instantly. It was a glorious parade unfolding in my ear. After meeting Leslie, it upped my attachment to the work even more. Not only is Leslie a wickedly talented artist, but he's also such a kind and inquisitive human. When I first met him, I had a profound respect for his pure, vulnerable approach to his art. He's fearless.
