So its only days away from the release of my new film clip Falling For you! And I wanted to take some time to reflect because I keep coming back to this question… Why do I even write music? Why should I even bother…?
Ok time to take a step back…
On regular occasions, I have people expressing that I’m wasting my time creating music. That I spend to much time focusing on my music and that I’m not really getting anywhere. I have people expressing opinions such as “Look you’ve just spent 8 months working and creating your new song” continued by “That is so much time, effort and money spent on something that could have been better spent doing something else like working” and they doubt whether I will be able to make back the vast mount of dollars that I have invested into creating my new track…”
But I don’t blame them! Maybe they might be right?? Maybe I am spending to much time on my music and wasting too much money…
There is, however, one crucial thing that they don’t understand…and that is what it feels like to create music. Nothing can replace, the joy, the excitement, the sadness and the melancholy of playing and interacting within the medium of music. Nothing replaces that feeling of connection between the audience and the performer; when your sound resonants within a persons sonically; transcending barriers and uniting people through feeling… Its a two way form of invisible communication that perhaps I don’t properly understand yet…and maybe never will.
If I did not love music and art, and it didn’t resonate through every pour of my body, and I only made it to try and make money, then I would have stopped creating many years ago and that’s why I think musicians fail. They may pursue music for a few years, maybe even 10 years, then give up…
I also have a lot of people telling me, and the gernal idea about the music industry is that it is over populated; that there isn’t enough room for everyone. This is rubbish in my opinion! Of course there is enough room in fact there more then enough room. If someone has something to say and is dedicated enough to stick to there guns then success will find them! Full stop.
Anyway, this is just my opinion. I’d love to have your opinion on the matter? Your Thoughts?
So! With only days away from the release of my new single “Falling For You,” you can imagine that there is a lot of things going through my head… all that I know for sure is that I have never been so excited to release something that means so much to me. And I hope that in some way you can connect with what I have created!
