An original song is not authentic if you are not true to yourself in your own artistic nature.
Art is the gateway to freedom of self
It has taken me a while to figure out that I love songwriting. Some say you should look back in time to what you were doing for enjoyment when you were five. If that is true, I was sitting on my front porch singing to the wind while dreaming about what life was like in the imaginary kingdom that I couldn't see beyond the trees.
I guess I needed to do a few things first though, like have a career, and a family. I also had to learn to stop putting myself and my personal dreams behind other people and things.
I know It is my moment in time to create music and I am loving it. Life is a gift and it is short, so I am listening to my heart. By doing this, I hope to encourage others to turn down the noise so that they can find and enjoy what inspires them.
Songs sometimes come as emotional information, or as if someone is speaking to me. I have had random dreams that don't relate to my own life and have felt compelled to write about the circumstances. Most commonly I write songs because I want to touch hearts.
With both my lyrics and melodies Infused into a carefully mixed concoction, I strive to make a vital connection to my listeners. Reminding them that we are all feeling joy, sorrow and anger in this life together.
