★ ONWARD WE RIDE ★
It’s been just over 4 months since we released our latest EP: Awake After Midnight. I know that personally this process has evoked a healthy array of experiences and emotions. Inspiring, humbling, and surprisingly raw. Authentic, vulnerable, and exposed.
Writing is both a deeply personal and poetic process for me. It’s something I’ve always done, but rarely shared. Many times it acts as a catharsis- the place I go to process and create movement around the emotions that I experience as particularly heavy or sticky. It acts as an outlet for the internal dialogue and inquisition I have with my own life. It also serves as the altar for the expression of my inner romantic, the sensual lover in me, and such cooing has been reserved for my beloveds’ eyes and ears alone.
So taking what I have always kept very privately, and translating it to music and song…allowing people to both enjoy and dislike, to applaud and critique…
I think Erykah Badu summed it up best.
'Now keep in mind that I'm an artist…and I'm sensitive about my shit!' ;)
As challenging as it can feel and as sensitive and dramatic as it can seem, it’s been a very healthy opportunity for my own personal growth and expansion. A journey to discover what truly lies beyond my own resistance and fears, beyond the need for approval and praise. Losing the need to be ‘in control’ of how life shows up for me, and what people might think of my choices and expression…in turn allowing life to grace me with what I most need to experience for my own benefit…as it’s perfectly designed to do…if I would just…let go.
…to let life be the music, and the music be life…
