New year, new music. 2015 was an amazing year for my personal music career. I released four new tracks and pushed myself to sing at more gigs in the city. Can’t wait to see what 2016 brings for my work and passion.
Music feeds my soul, which is why I love finding new hidden gems by truly talented artists. Here’s a countdown of the top 10 songs of 2015 that shaped me as an artist. Which was your most memorable track 2015?
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.
