It's 2009 and it’s finally about to happen. So many years in the making that most have stopped inquiring about it. So many tears, triumphs and tragedies that this album will capture the minds, hearts and souls of everyone who understands that pain reminds us how alive we really are. 2009 marks the emergence of a voice that will silence itself no more. “Going Sane in a Crazy World” is the solo debut from Baltimore native Kneel Knaris.
As a member of PX (Parts Unknown) he helped to bring the world “Everybody Wanna Know”, “Hail to the Streets” and “Hood Therapy”. Now he plans to reveal himself as the man with a story worth listening to. “Going Sane in a Crazy World” boasts production from Grammy-nominated producer Ivan “Orthodox”
“This project is so personal that I almost didn’t release it. I expose myself on this one. There isn’t a person alive who can’t relate to real life, real emotion, real pleasure and real pain.” Clinically diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder, Kneel’s genius is only multiplied and oftentimes marred by his chaotic mood swings. He affectionately refers to his “gift” as “Starbucks and Guinness Disorder”.
There is a stark contrast of painful honesty and sinful pleasure throughout “Going Sane in a Crazy World”. Songs like "Edge of Sanity” and "I Don’t Wanna Feel" translate the effects of Bipolar Disorder through clever arrangements, crisp hooks and succinct lyrics full of introspection and confusion. Conversely, songs like “Addiction (Going Sane in a Crazy World)” and "Two Women" draw listeners into the spiral of dependency, escape and self medication.
"Don’t get me wrong. I have as much fun as everyone else. Matter of fact I probably have more. But that fun ends up in a funnel just as quickly. My album is a reflection of my life. It’s the amusement park where the cost of admission is quite possibly a straightjacket."
Is it possible that this project should be protected by HIPAA Laws? Could these words, verses and songs actually help the constant conflict between mania and depression? March 2009 offers answers to every question you will ever have concerning Kneel Knaris and why he’s “Going Sane in a Crazy World”.
