Nineteen is out today on my birthday, 10/25, and available on all streaming/downloading services. It debuts my mixing skills, and features my vocals/songwriting/music production. The song was graciously mastered by Bob M, with feedback/support of many friends/co-creators. It is a rework of the vocals from a track I released in 2016 as part of my Life Is Grand EP. This version is a cinematic electronic ballad, inflected with the sounds of South Asia.
This release marks the 10 year anniversary of an event that changed my life on my 19th birthday, but most importantly, a turning of the tide for this water baby. I’ve always been in love, since the day I was born, probably before. I’m reclaiming that feeling of being in love with everything, and reclaiming the sacredness of my body, mind, soul, and heart. I guess I could say that 29 is a bigger deal for me than 30 will be.
In Nineteen, I ruminate about love, loss, healing, and strength. It centers a positive love experience in the present that helps to heal wounds formed from a negative/traumatic one in the past. As with all my music, my hope for Nineteen is that it can transport listeners to deeper states of reflection, healing, and loving, and help to inspire new futures.
