about the song
I find it funny that so often I miss the moment I've been waiting for.. whether it's the sun setting in the sea, the chick hatching from the egg, the butterfly breaking through the chrysalis. However, I also find it comforting that these things happen beyond my control, and I can close my eyes and rest, knowing that I too am transforming slowly but surely, every day.
I wrote it on a day I was trying to settle my emotions, produced in in a morning, and made a video with a green screen I hung over my curtains.
I grew up going to a small school in Florida, that encouraged big ideas. I was interested in questions more than answers. In order to remember everything from my address to buckling my seatbelt, I would make up songs with my mom. I enjoyed making movies for fun with my friends, and performing in school plays. I learned to find beauty in mistakes with an attitude of "The show must go on!" As well as, to laugh at myself whenever possible, which is very... very often.
Always interested in art, I found that Songwriting was the only art-form that combined my three favorite things; words, music, and connection. I studied songwriting under professor and mentor, Jodi Marr, at Belmont university, where I also studied Audio Engineering.
When I was little, my Grandpa made up tunes to make me laugh, and my Grandma wrote me a lullaby. I learned at an early age the power of music, how fun, freeing, and beautiful it can be. As a shy kid, I was able to express myself more authentically in music, than through most everyday conversations. I wrote my first song about the pains of homework in first grade with my mom, called “The Homework Blues.” I continued to write songs throughout my youth about unrequited love, feeling lost, dragonflies, etc… Writing is my therapy.
I love different forms of music from Johnny Cash, to the Cranberries, Bob Dylan to Radiohead; Bright Eyes to Dolly Parton, Ray Charles to Alanis Morsette, The Killers, Talking Heads, Blondie, Joni Mitchell and so many more. My mission is to connect with others through the thought provoking and heart healing music I try to create!
