Mini EP releasing next week!

This project has been a long, difficult, educational journey. I had no idea how many hours I would invest in these three songs. From writing to recording to mixing, I am blown away at how much knowledge I have had to acquire to make my goal a reality. 

When I started guitar lessons at age 18, I set the goal of making a release under my own name. I never worked at that goal seriously until this spring, however.

For once, I have taken a goal from the idea stage pretty much all the way to completion. Following through has never been my specialty. I am still working at the final mix, learning and testing idea after idea as I go. 

Here is a track called Half of my Life (not the final mix). I hope you find it anything but superficial:

Lyrics:

Intro:
Bright blue skies turn to blackened cloud
The good things in life obscured by shroud

Verse:
Half of my life I have worn a mask
Day by day no easy task
Half of my life I’ve put on a face
All in the name of fakin’ peace

Chorus:
If I put on a good face you just think it’s fake
If I don’t, well, you can’t relate
Some days I can’t be bothered to hide from my fate
If I don’t, well, you can’t relate

Bridge:
Every day war wages on
Inside my mind the pull is strong
Every day the battle continues
Always feel like something is wrong

The Finding my Voice EP will be released on Saturday, October 14th for free download on my Bandcamp page, and will be streamable on SoundCloud as well. I have made a Facebook page if you are interested in regular updates on my projects.
