This mixtape is the first in a series focusing on matters of the heart. It’s a story told through the music of some of the most talented underground Neo-soul and jazz artists of today; it also features some soul classics.  The story begins with the internal dialogue of a frustrated woman who is distracted from self examination when she quickly finds herself in love… again.  The man seems to reciprocate.  The rules are set, and just as fast as it began, their “love” dies.  The woman remains determined to be strong and convinces herself she’s better off without him.  She focuses on herself and this time is blessed with what appears to be real love… Could it be?
