"I've got a feeling and a knowledge, kind of criss-crossing"
I found the idea for my song, Conflicted, when I was on the phone with my grandmother. We were about my dreams of performing and writing, and I was releasing my first song, Transformations, at the time. I wanted to do everything I could to market it well, but I wasn’t sure of how to do so. I had instincts and logic, and I was overwhelmed by both. My grandma told me, “It seems like you’ve got a feeling and a knowledge and they’re kind of criss-crossing.” I was immediately struck by this sentence, and after we said goodbye, I darted to the piano and put her words to melody. The song unfolded over the next few weeks. I picked up my bass, and felt like a rockstar, while singing possible lines over it in hopes to tell a relatable story.
After I finished composing the song, I had a clear idea of production in mind. Late one night, when I was at work as a receptionist in an empty apartment building’s lobby, I produced Conflicted. As an artist, I enjoy viewing situations from as many different perspectives as possible. I like to imagine where other people are coming from, different sides and points of view. I consider this thought process a strength, but sometimes when I see pros and cons so vividly, decision making can be really hard, especially when emotions are involved.
