Hello! It has been quite a while since we've spoken. I have some updates to share, some of which you may already be aware of if you’re signed up on the newsletter.
If you were following the release and subsequent promotion of my self-titled album that I released in late 2012 let me catch you up on what I’ve been doing since then. It’s been quite an interesting journey!
After the release of my self-titled album I quickly put a band together, started playing shows and doing what most bands do after the release of an album. It didn’t take long for me to realize that this wasn’t going to be a long term thing for me. At the end of 2013 I had had my fair share of performing. I realized in a big way that being on stage and playing my songs for people wasn’t enjoyable for me. The joy and passion I find is in the creating, recording and sharing my music with all of you!
I had also noticed quite strongly that the lyrical and emotional content of my songs wasn’t reflecting who I was becoming. I knew that I wanted my music to promote positivity rather than a feeling of longing and lost love. So since I was in the habit of writing in my old way I pretty much stopped writing altogether. I devoted my time to what I (and many others) call “Mastery of self”. This was a journey into my self; an exploration of my thoughts, emotions and beliefs which led me to a discovery of who I truly wanted to be.
It’s a fascinating journey that has no end but I now feel that I’m at a point where I can more consistently be what some call their 'true self'. It’s that part of me that experiences and expresses love, joy and peace!
So now the underlying goal in all that I do is to promote positivity and upliftment. To be a positive example for others so that maybe they can find some more joy and peace in their lives as well if they so desire!
Now that we’re up to date I’m extremely excited to announce that I’ll be releasing a steady stream of new music starting on 01/16/16! The first song that will be released is called “The Spotlight” and I’ll be sharing a free preview of that here soon.
The plan is to release a new song every other month accompanied by a unique piece of inspired artwork for each song. I’m teaming up with talented artists and am so excited to watch them interpret my music in their own unique way.
If you’re an artist who would like to collaborate for one of my upcoming releases I’d love to hear from you! Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I’m also excited because it’s the holiday season! My favorite time of year. The Christmas tree in my house smells so good I can hardly stand it. I'm showing off my fancy new Live to Love hoodie in this pic.
I’ll be sending out an original Christmas song to all subscribers pretty soon so stay tuned for that!
