ALBUM: Tomorrow(AM)

Tomorrow (AM) from TimeShadow Music will be a collection of Worldbeat and Reggae songs about the current natural and spiritual status of humanity, with songs of hope and reality in a time when we need to regain our sanity and come together as one.

The concept of Tomorrow (AM) is that time is a transitional stream, a rhythm scripted and imprinted with tones and colors, perpetually coding history. Unique to the perspective of now, yesterday’s tomorrow is always today. While we keep on ticking, our trail, the Rhythm of life, is always being recorded by music. Playback is always in the future.
