I had a few people listen to my EP since recording it a few weeks ago. Everyone was happy and I had some great feedback. But there was one thing that stuck in my mind, a comment a few people made. ‘It’s a bit slow and depressing, isn’t it?’ and I guess the answer is yes. Yes, it is depressing a little and yes it’s very slow. But how does one tell stories of love and loss, heartbreak, depression and other such things in a fast passed wonderful manner?
This actually troubled me for a few days, I doubted what I had written and almost pulled its release. I suffer from self-doubt and confidence issues as it is so when someone tells you what you have is good but follow it up with a But! It really hits home.
I have listened to my EP over and over in the car, on the sofa and laid in bed late at night under headphones to really try and see anything I personally can’t be proud of and after much soul searching I finally found that I loved it. That I had written down some of my deepest thoughts and feelings and turned them into these wonderful stories.
I don’t like to think I write music, I write stories. That’s how I see my music! A story, that I’m hoping someone will hear and maybe relate to or appreciate my personal journey. So speed it up I won’t unless the story requires it! Be happy I won’t unless the story is a happy one.
I love writing them and I hope you will enjoy listening.
