When I became an independent artist, all I could do is try. So I continued writing lyrics, playing and programming the sounds I wanted to hear. I'd record and 'master' my vocal tracks, sometimes after long periods of time. Life happens and I learned it's best for me to just try to keep an atititude of gratitude . When this album began to materialize, it was like a strong, positive thread through the middle of some ragged and flimsy times, and it mysteriously held that and me together. I guess it was my 'reason'. But In the process I learned that I wasn't being all that good for me either. I even began to feel as though I needed someone to love me better than I could love me. To make it easier for me to do what I needed to do. That's where the title of this CD came from.
But I just kept writing stuff down, trying organise my thoughts with how I felt and sometimes I'd be getting on my own nerves. I wanted to be honest and creative and still be worthy of even a single listener. I wanted to express myself and see and hear and maybe better understand what the hell was swirling around in my soul keeping me so edgy and on this truly uncertain path.
Well, this album represents those things, the life changes I experienced, and some lessons I learned and want to share.
I'm still growing and learning as an independent artist and admitedly, I have a ways to go.
But in the meantime, I hope that you hear or feel what you like and I thank you in advance for your time.
I wish you the best of dreams.
