"I wrote these songs while battling depression & overwhelming anxiety, while dealing with heartbreak, death, and psychological trauma.I know that this music will speak to and help anyone going through similar situations.I can't wait to share it with the world.”
"On the heels of 50 million-plus streams, sold out shows, and acclaim from the likes of Time, Phacemag, Billboard, Complex, Nylon, Hypebeast and beyond by 2019, Jez Dior pulls together hip-hop, alternative, and pop into a powerful and personal patchwork, sharing his struggles and story as if speaking candidly right from a therapist’s couch. With an unbiased and unfiltered space for thoughts, feelings and emotions, he encourages others to open up the same way."
“I've always used music as a form of therapy and writing Handle With Care saved my life. This album is the story of the first 27 years of my life and is the difference between me joining ‘The 27 club’ and living. The name comes from the fact that this project is my entire life up until this point bundled up into something very fragile and delicate—just like me. I wrote these songs while battling depression and overwhelming anxiety, while dealing with heartbreak, death, and psychological trauma. I know that this music will speak to and help anyone going through similar situations. I can't wait to share it with the world.”
