New music like none you have seen me write before is just around the corner. I will be releasing a single from my new album soon as a sneak preview. I have always been able to express myself best through music. Songwriting is a risky thing to do, but being able to take risks is what creates strong connections with others. What makes you like a song? For me, it is because I relate to it. When I truly love a song it is because it deeply resonates with me and it says something I just needed to hear. So, with my new music I will be taking a deeper dive both musically and with my messages. I hope that in my music you hear something that you can connect with.
As a songwriter, I have come to accept that you have to be willing to expose a piece of yourself to the world. While I actually can be a bit of a private person, it’s through my music that I find an outlet for self expression. For as long as I can remember I have had music running through my head. As I have gotten older I realize that music is such an important part of my life that I am continually drawn to the creation of it. It’s like the music is just a part of who I am. A lot of times through the storytelling nature of my lyrics, there are two different stories being played out. This is meant to draw thought provoking parallels between situations. While I have no idea what the future holds, I do want to make a contribution to the world through music no matter how big or small that may be. I’m a believer in not holding back and living to the fullest expression of yourself no matter what that may individually be.
I am so incredibly grateful for all of the amazing experiences 2019 has brought so far, yet in a year of a lot of transitions I have been putting a lot of thought into how going from one version of ourself to another is so important. It is exciting to be starting high school, and I am open to whatever experiences and opportunities that it may bring. This brings me back to making connections with people. I think we are all just searching for other people who just fully accept us as the quirky, flawed, individual people we are. So if we are friends, or we have not met yet, or if you have just heard my music, I hope that you are able to find something that you relate to in my upcoming music. I believe that we all really do have people out there that we just vibe with - the people who just really do get us.
I don’t know who this quote is from, but I love it.
If you have read this far into this ramble, then we probably do have a common thread. It is my hope that by sharing a piece of myself that you see a piece of yourself in that same place through song.
