This past month was focused on getting the album released and getting the right promotion done for it so it could hit as hard as it can.
Shadow has a deeper meaning which I hope a lot of listeners can relate to. Like many of my songs, it focuses on dreams and ambitions, but it’s about the hidden things which can hold you back that can’t be seen from the onlooker.
If you don’t have someone to help make decisions and guide you with their resources, you can either do nothing and become stagnant or press on and make the best decision you can at the time. I decided to move on and take responsibility for where I was at and where I am going.
Anything can inspire me to write a song . Sometimes, a simple conversation can bring about some great music, and that music can draw people in. I call the music I create “Life Music” because it involves every aspect of my life.
I want to live in a better world and so I am trying to do my part through music for this and future generations. I am an anti-bullying advocate and create songs about life, love and social change.
Social media is extremely important and just get yourself out there. Don’t get in your own way with judgments, just start posting. Don’t do it scared. Whatever you do, do it 100% and be your best cheerleader!
I always wanted to sing professionally but unsupportive relationships in my late teens meant that I lost a lot of confidence in my musical ability and shelved my singing dreams for a while. When I was 21, I was asked to audition for a band after a band member heard me singing karaoke on a night out. I got the job and went on to work with a number of bands on the cabaret circuit and then moved onto working with original bands in more recent years.
Now with the mix of our newer generation musicians they three have brought up a fresh vision with their own set of influences. Not only musical influences, but also their way of thinking and seeing life as a whole. You can’t imagine how these differences enrich us as an indie band, seeing our ideas in a wider spectrum from each of our members perspective, and then consolidating them as a whole.
