A little impromptu cover with Lauren before a much needed vacation! We both absolutely adore this new Periphery song "It's Only Smiles" and it felt so good to hear Lauren sing it ♥️ follow our page @ourdestinymusic for more!
So thrilled to have finally reworked my studio space - new desk, new layout, new gear, and new inspiration and drive to create! Side note: this desk was my first couple's furniture assembly with @laurennolan_ , and we're still together at the end of it all... So I guess we really ARE compatible. :) #music #musicianlife #studio #homestudio #sauder @sauderusa @wearefocusrite @audientworld @arturia_official @m_audio @yamahamusicusa #producer #musicproducer #metal #progressiverock #progrock #progmetal #shred #djent #instamusic #studiovibes #homeimprovement #keyboards #keyboardist #composer #lit #vibes #follow
The difference between these two pictures isn't just 71 pounds.. the Vik in the right photo is also infinitely more centered and determined to succeed musically, mentally and emotionally. I have a long way to go but just this once, I'll allow myself some sense of accomplishment. :) #weightloss #keto #lifestyle #health #mentalhealth #selfimprovement #workinprogress #musician #artist #progress #proud #feels #ketotransformation  #ketoweightloss

Thank you, @periphery , for the years of art and inspiration. Their new record "Periphery IV: Hail Stan" is out today, and shows a band firing on all cylinders, completely liberated creatively and sonically - moving, engrossing, and just damn good. Here's my favorite part from possibly my favorite song of 2019, "Satellites." ♥️

Happy Wednesday! I just walked out of my first ever therapist meeting for my long-standing depression and anxiety issues. Feeling like there might be some hope and fight left in this mofo after all. :) here's me with the reason I had the courage to reach out and get help. Lauren is the best. ♥️ #depression #anxiety #mentalhealth #help #fight #YouAreNotAlone #wednesday #feelinggood
My new single "The Clouds Parted, If Only for a Moment" is out now. I'm deeply proud of this one... what started as a humble improvisation turned into a one-take performance that captures so much of my current emotional and mental struggles. Check out the full song on YouTube and all streaming sites, and I hope this track brings some light and peace into the minds of those who need it ♥️ link in bio!
"The Clouds Parted, If Only for a Moment." New solo piano single coming this Friday! ♥️
