Surviving a near-death experience isn’t always sunshine and roses. Kaheim Rivera had to recover for months after being hit by a car, and even after that, he struggled to reclaim his old sense of normalcy. He wrote many songs in this idle time – the new Be Quiet EP may be the first in a series of releases of music Rivera wrote while immobile, when he was forced to reflect on his life.
