New song! “Let it slide”

So I’ve been trying to figure out this whole music thing for years. I have no clue what I’m doing when it comes to making a song, all I know is that I like making them. I hope you enjoy this latest song, it’s definitely a work in progress but I feel like it’s off to a good start.

Just wanted to share: Shakia Chanel


art lives

Last Friday I got the chance to be a part of an awesome artist showcase called Art Lives and it was a great evening. One of my favorite parts of the night was getting to hear Shakia Chanel perform. This girl is crazy talented and you guys know how I feel about crazy talented people, I just have to share them with you! Shakia’s voice is so pure, in my opinion, it’s one of those voices that just sound effortless. I hope you will enjoy this performance, it’s not from last Friday, but I’ll see if she posts any videos from then and if so, expect another post 🙂 

Make sure you let Shakia know how much you enjoy what she does! You can follow her on twitter @shakia_chanel  she’s also on facebook and youtube.

The Limit

I’m excited to share my newest instrumental track with you! It’s called “The Limit” and I think this track in particular is going to be the start of a new direction for my sound. It’s got a slightly quirky thing going on with it and I like it so I’ll be experimenting more in the future. I’m still learning about my creativity when it comes to music so I’m happy to hear any comments or suggestions from you all 🙂 Hope you guys enjoy!

New song! “Stepping Back”

New song tentatively titled “Stepping Back” (I can’t name songs to save my life smh). It’s still in the rough phase, something is missing that I can’t put my finger on but I’m ignoring the picky side of myself and posting it anyway. Enjoy!

You have to hurt to heal…

I’m of a broken jigsaw puzzle,
no picture to help you piece all the scattered parts of me.
I’m not easy to figure,
no quick calculations here dear,
if you want to know my secrets, just ask.
I won’t scratch, I won’t bite,
I may lie here and there,
I’m no angel, though sweet faced,
Only human I make mistakes.

Tear me down as long as you’ll build me up better.
Break the seal I’ve put in place.
Don’t worry about hurting me,
for you can do no worse than I have.
You have to hurt to heal they say.

And I won’t question your intentions
as long as you don’t question mine.
And I won’t bleed if you don’t cut me.
So try not to tattoo my fragile heart with pain.

I play tough to make it through the day.
Avoid all the hurts in hopes they’ll fade away.
But hiding only pulls me closer to myself
So I’ll be waiting, hero come save me.

Tear me down as long as you’ll build me up better.
Break the seal I’ve put in place.
Don’t worry about hurting me,
You can do no worse than I have.
You have to hurt to heal they say.

These are the lyrics to a song I wrote a while ago. I can’t find the music for it anymore 😦 but figured I’d still share this with you guys. Thanks for reading!
