New Music: Flight
I made this song a while ago, while delving into the use of music software. Once I finished the music and sat down to write lyrics, a funny thing happened… the song decided it wanted to be an instrumental recording. 🙂
Drink More Water – Acoustic Version
Much respect to those who can play an instrument AND sing well, at the same time!
I found trying to do both to be challenging, but I’m glad I didn’t let that stop me. I discovered that focusing on the joy of singing and playing the guitar, versus aiming for perfection, allowed the song to flow more smoothly. Staying in the moment forced me out of my head (where the potential for criticism lies), and into my heart (where the music lives).
Prince Tribute – Purple Rain
When I learned of the recent passing of music icon and creative genius, Prince, I was more devastated than I expected to be about the death of someone I’d never met.
Why did I feel this loss more profoundly than the recent passing of others I’ve admired?
I think the sudden and unexpected nature of his death contributed greatly to my shock at hearing the news.
If someone has a terminal illness (David Bowie), has struggled with substance abuse (Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston), or is older (Maya Angelou), you may expect their passing… not so in this case.
Good Morning, Sunday! Just felt like singing my favorite praise song!
DRINK MORE WATER
It’s been a while since the debut release of “Drink More Water!”
I’m currently working on the acoustic version of that song, as well as a few others, so be sure to look out for them!
