Released in January of 2023, the song "Waiting For Your Love" was influenced by electronic artists such as Lenno and Oliver. I wanted a faster tempo vibe with a disco beat. I immediately put together the verse with a funky guitar, a groovy bass, and a 90's house style piano. While I was writing this song, someone from my past reached out to me to apologize for never giving us a real shot. Flustered, I want to say that I was sick of "waiting for your love" over the years. Instead, I internalized, and put it in a song. Healthy right? My favorite lyric from the song is "my heart has taken beatings". I was thinking about how I've been hurt over the years with this off and on relationship, but here I am, heart is still beating and taking beatings. To wrap up this song, I wanted to attempt to create a saxophone sound similar to song "Jason" by "The Midnight". It was tough to produce, but I threw it in over the post chorus. The "Sax" was decent, therefore the song was complete. Hope y'all enjoy.
Released in September of 2022, the song "From The Start" began by experimenting with this really bouncy synth that I fell in love with. From that 3 second sound, I wrote an entire song around it. Everything started falling into place including the lyrics. I was scrolling thru Facebook that night and saw someone I used to be close with venting about their recent relationship ending. They were upset about how it was all a lie and that ultimately, the person didn't care about them from the start. I could relate to the pain they were going through from some of my prior relationships and how mad and betrayed I felt now that it was over. My favorite part of the lyrics was about leaving the picture on the wall. It made me think of how we torture ourselves with hope and nostalgia.
Released in June of 2022, the song Over You was started with a single vocal loop I recorded. I started putting different effects on the track, then a beat, then a chord progression, and it all just fell into place. It was fun to chop up the vocal and make a variety of sounds. I wanted to keep the lyrics very simple so the focus would be on the vocal chops and production. The outro is my favorite part. It's so mellow, big, and emotional. The title of the song "Over You" is deceiving since the lyrics are "crying over you" .
Released in May of 2022, the song Running Away was the first song I wrote and sang lyrics on. The song was written during a time where I felt like everything was going wrong. I wanted to just pack up my shit, leave everything, and start fresh. Those feelings were so conflicted with leaving what I still had in my life. I questioned why I was "Running Away" and began to mentally argue with myself. After everything settled in my head, I started writing the music and the lyrics just came naturally. It was a very emotional process but felt so good to get those feelings out on paper and in a song I enjoy. Thanks for listening!
