SONGS IN MY LIFE! I invite you to my songwriting adventures. How do the songs get here? How do I write them? Where do the melodies come from? Exactly how are they created? The songs have meaning. They have emotion and purpose. I am so grateful to be able to share what I am inspired to manifest. It hope anyone listening to my songs and reading this book find even a tiny piece of inspiration.
I’ve probably written well over 300 songs, recorded about 35, would like to re-record some of them to make them better and to endlessly record and write because it’s such an enjoyable process. During interviews I’ve often been asked what inspires me to create or to write a song. The answer is anything and everything. It could be the way the wind blows; a glance at a flower, the observation of the energy surrounding a couple in love, a child’s smile or listening to music that holds an embedded, silent melody and words within its vibe. It’s imagination that leads to a “download” of words and melodies. Sometimes when I go to write, I have the concept and a few lines and nothing else seems to come. I go off to do something else and by not thinking about the song at hand, I am able to get into the vibration with it and the rest of it comes.
SONGS IN MY LIFE is volume 1 of a collection of songs that I’ve written and recorded during my years which includes an explanation of how they came to me. It’s an interesting trip for anyone who’d like to understand my process.
