Magical Escape

Magical Escape

The film crew redid my parts in the music video for Nighttime Story. Check out the new version of the song for the video:

Every time I get into the production for the video, or am in the studio recording or composing I escape to these incredible realms. Tuesday night’s shoot felt magical, and I was so happy and energized after.

I felt the same rush today, when I was working on the chord charts for Porcelain Doll before my voice lesson so I could go over the theory with my teacher. In one part of the song, I hit an A flat major chord, then a D flat major, and that progression is triumphant in what it declares. I felt like life was perfect, and I could repeat that moment over and over again; I never wanted it to stop. I felt powerful in what I was trying to express, and felt confident that I was capable of unconditional love and forgiveness. I felt at peace, even as I was feeling a rush of energy.

These are the moments that I live for.


Okay, so now I have a Youtube link for a music video for an original song, and have blasted it on Facebook and Google plus, but what else could I do with it? I have no idea how to generate more traction. It’s a little discouraging to see that some people can get more comments and likes on what they ate for lunch than I’m getting for my video. Maybe I’m just being impatient? What if the video just disappears without leaving a trace?
