I think the last time I blogged, I was still trying to shake off Cape Town energy from my heart. Moving to a new place is a challenge. It most definitely toughens you up and prepares you for the new journey that’s ahead. I think human beings hate change but one thing is for sure, we are built for it.
“New air, new sounds and a lot of new friends. Leaving the past behind , but keeping your gifts close by”.
I have been in studio for the last month or two with producer Fabian Sing.It’s been a great and blessed process. Writing and arranging is much diffrent to what it was with the previous record. I guess, the more years go by, you start reconising what works and what doesnt.
I want to make an album that I would buy. An album that is fun but that can still whisper answers of inspiration. I mean, that for me, is a good record!
Someone asked me the other day, “Do you think this new album will have longevity” ? To be honest, I didint know how to answer that question. One thing I have learnt is that it’s so important living in the NOW. I have huge difficulty living in the NOW. I think most of us do….
“LIGHT” which is the title to my second record, is a testimony of my journey. My new journey at least, the one where I am forced to live in the NOW.
I have been escaping since the age of BORN. I had to. I would escape listening to music just like someone would escape to drugs or alcohol. My way of escaping was through living up in my head ALL the time. I wasn’t aware of my problem. But through these last few months, I have become my own teacher my own guidance. My new journey has made reality more real. I was reborn at age 28.
I love growing…don’t you?
Counting down the days to LIGHT……T X
