It’s been so long since I’ve gone out and sang my heart out. At the end of touring my last record I felt deflated and a bit defeated. I had moments were it was exhilarating and other times were it was excruciating. I honestly wondered if I would ever find the spark needed to make music again. Thankfully I’m starting to feel the hunger pangs, the need to write things down and find the chords to go along with these feelings. Not sure how long it will take but I’ll get there eventually. I’ve realized that you can do things your own way, even if that is at a snails pace. Sometimes we can get so hung up on the destination that we forget about the journey. Juggling everything isn’t easy but I have way more privilege than most and I’m very lucky that I get to do many things in my life that bring joy and to not let circumstances or the grind of life take that joy away. . . . Thank you everyone for the support 🙏🏻
