So, today is a big day for me. Not only is it my birthday, but it is also the official launch day for my music website. I’ve mentioned in previous posts that I’m a musician, but haven’t actually demonstrated that to many of you The Y Variable readers, so…here goes!
www.yaahemaa.com is now live!
My tracks can also be found at soundcloud.com/yaahemaa.
The following can be found on my “About” page, but I thought I’d also share here what music means to me:
I have a lot of ideas and stories swirling around in my head. When you’re that kind of person you have no choice but to let those mental impressions out somehow. For me, that release comes through writing and through playing music.
We often overuse the word “love”, but it’s truly how I feel about music. I absolutely, wholeheartedly love it. I love what music does for all of us – its ability to inspire change, alter moods, set a romantic scene, or conjure love in a person who has given up on its beauty.
I also love how I feel when I sing or when I play the piano. I’m at my best when I perform. It’s when I feel most calm, serene, confident and powerful. When I write, when I sing, it’s from the truest place within me. My lyrics, my melodies, that’s me unrestrained. My music, that’s the most honest , most real part of myself.
