It’s been a while since I have posted here, and I don’t think I’ve given too much information away with regards to my Major Music Project. Allow me to explain!
Although most of my time as a working and studying musician has been spent trying to make money from playing the music of others, I decided it would be a great challenge for me to try creating a recording of my own music. Having never written songs before, it has been a fairly daunting task but also very rewarding. It’s given me a way to channel certain thoughts and feelings in a way that I am comfortable with. It has been quite therapeutic so far! Essentially, the music and lyrics express my experience with fairly universal themes that I hope listeners can relate to.
Originally I had intended to write the music and lyrics, then have someone else sing them. However, the personal nature of the lyrics and due to the melody being in a place that suited my own voice, I felt that it would be best if I simply sang the songs by myself.
Although I am still undecided whether or not my musical aspirations will focus on original music, I think this project can prove very useful as a way of proving to myself that I can function as an original solo artist. I look forward to completing the EP, but I would be lying if I said I don’t feel some trepidation!
