I was listening to a radio program a few days ago, and I was struck by the contrast between two of my favorite singers.
They were not the typical pop-rock acts.
One was an all-star.
The other, an alt-rock singer.
But in each case, I could tell that there was something different about their sound.
I had no idea why.
As I listened, I was suddenly struck by a feeling I had never experienced before: Something about the way they sang was so different.
The words sounded like a poem in my head, but I could hear it through the sound of their voice.
And the way that they sang them?
It made me feel like I was right there with them, right there in front of them.
Their voices were so raw, so powerful.
So raw, in fact, that I began to question my own musical taste.
I realized that if I didn’t want to be a rock star, I needed to start listening to other music.
And so I did.
After all, what do I want to do with my life if I can’t be a pop star?
After years of being unable to find any kind of entertainment in the music industry, I decided to get back into music.
I decided that I would try to find a good songwriter.
And it didn’t take long.
In just a few weeks, I had found a great songwriter who would write songs for me.
I’d even gotten some gigs.
The next step was to make the song myself.
I’m not the first singer to do this.
And I certainly won’t be the last.
But for a while now, I’ve been having a lot of fun doing it.
I’ve also found that singing and writing music have an undeniable impact on how I feel and feel about myself.
As a singer-songwriter, I can feel and hear everything that’s going on around me, from my own emotions and thoughts, to the emotions of other people.
I can even feel the physical and emotional pain that my songs create.
I also know that music can bring me together with people.
My favorite songwriter, singer-artist Sam Cooke, said it best: “The only way to be happy is to love others.”
I believe that, even if I’m still trying to find my place in the world, music can help me find it.
For now, however, I’m happy to share what I’ve discovered with you.
I want you to understand that this is not a story about what I did for money or fame, or about what people say about me when I’m interviewed about my music.
This is not about how I ended up as a singer, but rather, what I’m going to do for the next two years.
This story is about me discovering music.
But it is also about the people who inspired me, and about the music that I’ve created over the last two years, and how I’ve come to be the artist I am today.
