Wow it's been a long time since I've gotten on here. I've been consumed by the work in the studio finishing up the EP and then went right into working of design of the artwork and all the other pieces to get in place for the release party and everything. I am SO proud of this project. It is the best work I've created up until this point in my artistic life. I feel like it's totally aligned with the esthetic and message I want to share with the world. I have put my heart and soul into this music. In the process I changed the title of the album from Wild Heart to Daybreak. This recording is like that moment when the first little glimpse of the sun peeks over the hill. It has happened every day for millions of years but it's so exciting to see that little ball of light for the first time again. And to watch it grow into it's fullness, rise into it's glow.
These four songs are a journey of breaking through the dark of night. The mastered tracks have been send to manufacturing and I am now having a press release sent out to 50+ blogs in the yoga world to try to gather more fans and more exposure. I believe in this music. I want it to spread.
Now that it's done, I am working on how to strategically position myself for the coming months and years. I want to be ready and available for the opportunities that are coming my way. I want to be a part of the community in whatever ways I am asked.
A beautiful couple recently wrote me and asked me to sing at their wedding ceremony and reception. I am so thrilled to have music to share at this milestone in people's lives. I love playing in yoga classes and being a part of people's spiritual practice. But most of all, I envision myself on stage with my full band bringing my new music. Unwritten songs are here - inside me - so close to the surface - just waiting for their turn. They are at my fingertips every time I reach for my guitar. The lyrics are flowing so freely out of me almost immediately when I ask for them to show up. I am really amazed at that and it's a great feeling to have that kind of access to the juicy creative flow. But that creative flow needs a place to go - it needs a structure and way to be communicated to other musicians. It needs an audience to flow into. The audience is the container for this musical elixer that I have been gifted with. The experience of creating this album with the funds from a waiting audience was the most motivating thing I could do. Because throughout the process I knew that someone was on the receiving end - waiting to catch the ball I am about to throw. Waiting for the sun to hit the horizon, waiting for the day to break.
My life is my art and my music. My body is my vehicle. The deeper the sensing, the deeper the meaning.
