Wow! I can't believe its finally here! After writing this song more than 5 years ago, working in the studio for over a year on my album, my first single is finally ready for you all to hear! A link to hear it or buy it is in my bio! •
I wrote Change Me when I was in a very raw place in my life. I had been out of high school for several years already, and I didn't feel like I was getting anywhere in life. I only really wanted to be a musician, but I didn't believe in myself enough to pursue it. I was so insecure about who I was, what I looked like, and what people thought of me, and I didn't think I would ever measure up to the expectations I felt people had of me. In this super tender place, I was met with this strong love and acceptance that overcame me. For the first time in a long time I didn't feel the need to change who I was to fit into a mold. •
Where I felt inadequate, I was told I was more than enough. Where I felt invisible, I was seen. Where I saw fat and ugly, I was called beautiful. •
I was met in this place by a loving God who told me I was enough exactly how I was, and it changed me, and out if it came this song that would be the first song to make it onto my debut album. This moment of being told I didn't have to change gave me the freedom to start becoming the person that I really wanted to be, for me, and not for anyone else. •
And thats why I chose Change Me to be the first song I released out into the world (since my EP 7 years ago). This was the first song I wrote on the album, and was a huge part of my journey in learning to love myself, allowing myself to be loved, and becoming the person that I am. •
It may just be a pop song, but it's also a part of my journey.
I hope you find some enjoyment from this song that has helped build me.
I used to hear constantly (and probably even have said a few times myself) comments about how pop music isn't real music, or good music, and requires no talent. I found myself shying away from the style that I naturally was drawn too because of my desire to be respected as a musician, that I never felt I was fully being myself in the music I did do. •
When I went to music school, I got to sing in several ensembles that opened up new styles of music to me that I loved getting to sing. In my first year I got to be in an ensemble lead by Havelock John Tucker that, amongst other styles, certainly fit in the pop world, and I absolutely loved it! That was a huge part of me accepting my love for pop music, and how artistic and musical it still can be, while being catchy and well produced at the same time. Now, after 3 years of learning from John, I have gotten to work with him, and am so excited to be releasing music with him as my producer. •
My first single Change Me comes out this Friday 😆😅 and I couldn't be more excited to release my first pop song into the world!
