New Song: My Imaginary Friend

With Halloween and Day of the Dead fast approaching, I thought I’d release a song with some creepy chords and undertones to get in the spirit.

“My Imaginary Friend” is a conversation between myself and my imaginary friend. The inspiration for the song came from a long distance relationship I was in that left me feeling desperate and lonely. Love is a complicated emotion and I often would pretend to have conversations throughout the day that, in reality, only existed in my head. The relationship was difficult and toxic and these imaginary conversations made me feel alive, living in a fantasy world I created and controlled. The lyrics were written during long trips and train rides and was an outlet to understand my feelings.

I’m sure many people can relate to this experience and I hope you enjoy. Let me know what you think in the comments.

Happy Halloween!

Hope. Ambition. Dreams.

We forget that these are people and could become invaluable members of the community in their new home. Albert Einstein was an immigrant in the US. Nabokov emigrated to the US from Russia, Marie Curie moved to France from Poland.

Music has always been an outlet for me to understand and deal with these types of issues and emotions. A few years ago, dealing with my own struggles with the US immigration system, I wrote a song about my experience. It’s about a 13 year old girl who dreams of moving to America to start an amazing life and hopes of becoming a star. I think it’s about time to start producing it. *Stay tuned*
