Hello all! I just wanted to check in and say that I hope you’re all doing well. It can be hard to stick to any kind of a schedule these days with so many uncertainties. As a matter of fact, I want to start posting more regularly a) so that you can get to know me better 😁 and b) to get my own energy moving. I tend to live in my head a lot, and I have a lot of ideas that I don’t take action on, so I want to try to change that. Especially as my album gets closer to release, there's a lot to be excited about!
People often ask me about the songwriting process and how often I write songs. There’s a lot I could say about this! I think the process is different for everyone, and some people swear by having a routine and allocating a certain amount of regular time for songwriting. However 😜 I tend to do better with a bit more freedom. This past year I’ve been processing a lot emotionally, and music was an outlet for me to transmute some of my negative energy into something more positive. I find that the less I try to control the songwriting process, the better it comes out. As a matter of fact, I had a cool song come through the other night around 3am. I couldn’t sleep, and I just thought to myself, what am I wanting to say or express right now? What does my higher self want me to know? And bam. Cool song. [For the record, sometimes when this happens, I look at the song the next day and it’s crap. But you have to at least be open to the possibility of awesomeness.] So if you have a creative outlet, whether it’s songwriting or something else, I hope that you’re able to channel your energy into it and allow it to serve you, and maybe serve others too. In my experience, more flexibility you allow yourself, the more space you give yourself to grow and expand beyond what you thought you could do! 💜☯✨
