Moonrize, who volunteers for an organization that assists underprivileged individuals, found inspiration for this track in the struggles he witnessed among those he served.

The track kicks off with an acoustic guitar and energetic drums, primarily based on two chords.

He draws upon his extensive library of samples, loops, and effects, allowing melodies to come to life with the help of innovative plugins. Strings, synths, and other instruments all find their place within the song, creating a captivating and dynamic musical landscape.
“(I’m Not Your) Prisoner” is an anthem of empowerment and self-expression, drawing influence from the struggles Moonrize has witnessed while volunteering.
