about

TFW is the debut album by Jio, a departure from his dance music stylings as J. Albert into singing and songwriting. TFW is a nine track album spanning styles from r&b, hip hop, to ambient and electronic abstractions, seeing Jio bring together the warm, distorted, analog quality of his dance music productions with DIY bedroom vocal takes and intimate lyrical musings.

TFW is about the revolving thoughts and seemingly never-ending internal dialogue that happen during times of hardship that so many of us experience as young adults– breakups, family trouble, unemployment, etc. For Jio, writing these songs on his phone on public transit, or out somewhere late night in an altered state, then returning home to record in his bedroom, this was a way of exporting those thoughts and compartmentalizing, breaking the endless feedback loop.
