For as long as I can remember, I have always been deeply moved by music and drawn to it. The sum of my life today is simply the multiple pursuits added up all together of chasing the electric feelings of listening to, writing and performing songs. So far there hasn’t really been anything else in the world that compares to the feeling of playing music live and connecting to an audience, however this year I need to take a step back and add something else into the equation – recording!
Over the past ten years I have dedicated my time to absorbing as much music as I can by: reading and listening to EVERYTHING, locking myself in my room and practicing guitar almost every day, transforming my life experiences and made-up stories into songs, playing with and learning from many talented musicians, getting over being shy, and performing for anyone who was willing to listen.
The seed was planted in my mind a long time ago that one day I would be able to hold in my hands a tangible CD (haha “Seed-y”) comprising of my very own songs, and be able to expand the listening experience from live performance to recorded music, and share with others these captured moments in time that have given my life so much joy.
I have learnt that you really can’t rush music, and that good things take time to grow. 🌱 It’s not about the speed at which you post content, or how many views or likes you get.. or really any fleeting personal ambition; but rather music is about the lasting connection created with the song and listener, and how alive it makes them feel.
I am beyond excited for the next couple of months which will bring each song to life, and hope that my music will contribute to inspiring other artists and listeners just like their music has enriched my own life.
