I’ve been writing a lot of new music lately. There’s been a lot on my mind, so what’s a girl to do? We agreed to write a few songs for this next album as a band, so my guitarist is already getting worried that I’ll end up writing the entire thing by myself again, haha. He doesn’t have a thing to worry about, because most of these songs will probably never see the light of day.
The last few months have been a journey and a learning experience to say the least. I’ve faced a lot of harsh realities and another few heartbreaks. Summer is sad girl season I guess. But at the end of the day, I’m down for everything the world wants to throw at me as long as I continue feeling inspired to make music.
I’m feeling more isolated than ever, and simultaneously more stimulated. Up until a couple months ago, when we got back from tour, I used to work on things for the band every single day. When we returned to Denver, I just let myself check out, and gave my brain and body some rest from constantly thinking about what I had to get done. I was a little mad at myself for getting so sidetracked this summer, but what I kept telling myself was “everyone deserves a break sometimes”. And it’s true. I’ve basically been going nonstop for the band for the last two and a half years, and I felt that it was time I gave my brain and body a little vacation. It was much needed, but I’m ready now. I’m feeling more focused than ever and ready to start gearing up for our next string of shows and this killer new album we’re going to make.
I’m thankful for everything that’s happened, the good and bad. It will all rise to the surface at its own pace. For now, it’s my writing inspiration. I know it was all for a reason, and I’m totally fine with just letting the universe hold the reins. Clearly it knows what it’s doing.
