The songwriting process never ceases to amaze me. I hear music, or receive words to a melody that channels through my being, out of my mouth and into the world.
I notice that there is a mixture of emotions, thoughts and stories that come up. Part of me feels so excited, that I know this is something powerful and special. Then another part of me starts to feel scared, will people get it? Like it? Criticize me?! Will I be able to put what I’m hearing in my heart and mind down on paper and audio the way I hear it within?!
So many questions.. to many opportunities to say fuck it. I’m not doing this. But what fun is that?!
Can you imagine if, when any of the great artists, creators and inventors in our world were to allow their fear, their insecurities or stories about being enough, being loved and accepted etc., the fear of it being too much work, stop them from creating?!
Imagine the great works of art, the great inventions we might have never known. Ooooo… make me shiver just thinking about it!
So here I was… presented with a musical idea from a dear friend (and a Grammy nominee no less). A few things happened… an idea started to flow through me, and I wasn’t sure how to get it out in audio form or on paper. I felt excited and nervous. Then, as I started to play with what I was hearing I became scared. What if what I’m hearing isn’t good enough? What if he doesn’t like it? What if… what if… what if?!!!
I felt intimidated by the whole thing.
So I gave it space, gave myself space to breathe, feel it and allow the energy of it to move through me.
Then once I received the demo track to write to, in a matter of 2 days, the entire song came streaming through me!
The first take I sent to the producer is so far from what the song sounds like now, however that’s where I got the chorus from.
I went back to the drawing board and was able to write the first verse from that recording. Then the second verse came and the bridge, in less than an hour!!
The powerful creative juice and energy that flowed through me as a result has literally been the light at the end of the tunnel for what’s turned out to be a very challenging beginning of the New Year.
To witness the process, how it all came together, and how this idea has become a super juicy powerful love song… from nothing to something super special, absolutely amazes me!
This process took a LOT of time.. much more time than I expected. So I had to be patient. And now.. YOU SEE ME is HERE!!!!
Life happens not when we think we’re ready, but when Universe / God / Goddess / Source knows we’re ready.
So February 28th is the day… I’m ready to share this powerful love song with you!!
