This is me… then
I’m creating a lot of new music at the moment. As I evolve, It’s natural to outgrow styles and preferences, but I do believe that it’s important to always be proud of who you were.
I know of artists that always start new projects and delete everything they have done before to be able to start fresh. I understand that, the thought of a clean slate can be tempting, but in doing so, you deprive the listener/viewer/reader the knowledge of the whole story… the story of how you came to be who you are today. It’s like posting a picture of a delicious cake without sharing the recipe.
I have learned so much from watching other artists evolve, and I’m inspired by their courage to share their journey with the world. I attempt to do the same, I want everyone to be able to see my progress, my struggles, my insights and my strive. I genuinely believe that transparency in self and in others teaches us the most. It is so incredibly thrilling to dare to be naked.
On that note I feel compelled to share my old EP with you again. I recorded this in 2009, it feels so long ago. When I listen to it I can find a billion things that I want to change about it, but I won’t, because it’s perfect..This is who I was.. then.
Thank you all for sharing this journey with me. Thank you for inspiring me, and allowing me to get naked.
