It’s a burning question for me, how do you sing songs written for someone that’s no longer in your life. You know that one special person who becomes a muse, that one person who you love and cherish more than you do yourself. That allows you to write songs deeper than you have before. Then they are gone, the muse has left but the songs remain.
I write all my music based on my life and all the wonderful twist and turns that come with it. So when I spent time in California with what I thought was my soulmate I wrote some of the best songs I have ever written and now my soulmate has left I’m stuck with an album of songs I have to record and somehow try to promote through the tears and the memories. Like a Rear View Mirror (See what I did there)
So I ask for some advice from my fellow artists, how do you do it because I’m struggling! I have one week before I record this record and to be quite frank I’m not sure how I can do this justice, or try and travel back to a place where these songs came from. The happy times that I shared and where these songs were born without breaking down and choking up.
I try to play Butterfly and it kills me, My favorite most popular song and I can’t sing it. I guess this is what being a creative person is all about.
