I have decided to start blogging every other week about what is going on in my mind, with my music and just in my life in general. So here is the first official post! Here we go:
I have been having some really in-depth conversations with myself about what I want to do in life. What kind of music I want to create, the sound and vibe, the messages. I originally started this journey while starting to work on my first show which is surprisingly coming up in a week. I struggled to find the set I wanted to perform because I didn't know what I wanted to brand myself as. After long nights of thought, it became clear exactly what I want to do. I know what inspires me, the type of music that gives me feels, and all of the things I want to express when I decide to perform or put myself out there. Now whether that fits into a genre or style that has already been setup, I'm not sure...and that is a great thing. Because that means I'm not trying to fit into something already made. I'm being myself and whether it fits or not, I'll still be doing what I have been created to do.
Now that I have figured out what I'm going for with my music, I have started looking for a team to work with. I have been reaching out to producers and looking for the perfect fit. I also have been working with my stylist, Quam Kent, on my "image" (if you don't know who he is, get to know him because he's a man with an incredible vision, the skills to match, and a heart of gold). I've been working with other songwriters on ideas and I have been writing everyday just about my life experiences and my feelings because a song can and will be made about it all. I am starting all of this so that I can in the future create content that I am proud of and confident in. I don't want to rush this process so I won't put a timestamp on when it'll happen but I am determined to make it happen.
In the mean time, I have challenged myself to do a few things:
1) Write in a journal everyday about anything and everything going through my mind and in my life.
2)Write on this blog every other week to keep you all involved and to keep track of my progress throughout this journey.
3) Put out some form on content at least twice a month. Meaning originals, high-quality covers, crappy iPhone-recorded videos, live footage from shows, all of that. Something so that I'm putting myself out there.
I think this is a good first post so I'll stop here! Thank you so much reading! Check back in on August 21st for the next!
