Really excited I was able to release this track today:
This song started as an idea that sprung from a conversation with a friend on attachment theory. Soon after, one of my best friends suggested that I take an inner child journaling course with her. This set up the space in my mind to look back in my life. My grandmother passed away during the second week of the course, and I finished writing the song as a tribute to her unconditional love and my childhood. Enjoy!
Just finished a new single this past weekend, and have scheduled it to be released on Friday. So excited! It made me really happy to write it and finish it. I partly used it as a way to process the grief of my grandmother passing, but mostly as a tribute to my childhood and her unconditional love. I’m really grateful to a couple of friends for important conversations around our childhood as well, one of whom suggested I take the Pathway to Peace course with her. The coursework paved the way for me to finish writing this song. I can’t wait to share it, so stay tuned for more soon!!
I just finished structuring a new song and I’m done writing about half of it. There’s a lot of sadness and love behind it, and I hope it makes people who listen to it tear up a little someday. I’m working out the chords right now, and as I was noting the chords above the words I was overcome by a feeling of tenderness, almost like those chords were little children that I love and want to nurture.
A good friend of mine recently told me that if I continue to deny expressing myself through art and refuse to focus on it, I’m going to end up embittered and feeling stifled for the rest of my life. It’s a really frightening thought, but artists typically have to fight a lot of constraints, even if they’re really gifted. I have a few rather glaring constraints to fight against, and to risk a tremendous leap that could result in complete and utter failure that leaves you permanently stranded is not an easy choice. So, what are my options?
