Like serpents my thoughts slither in, "You're a fraud." Does anyone else see 'Imposter' emblazoned on their forehead when they see their reflection? What a funny thing existence is; we can feel isolated from the rest of humanity yet take comfort in the thought that we all fear we aren't good enough. 'Imposter' is the 2nd single off my upcoming EP 'Tactile Hallucinations'.
This song is a reminder that even if I had no voice, I’d still have a voice. My internal voice is powerful. My expression of it is powerful. Being able to communicate my journey that has been fraught with internal conflict and feelings of insecurity many nights is POWERFUL. This song reminds me that we don’t always see ourselves in the brightest light, and that’s life. We have to meet ourselves in the shadows to realize how truly blinding our lights are. And it’s a beautiful thing to be in either place, because existence itself is a beautiful thing.
'Passenger Seat' is the lead single off of my upcoming EP 'Tactile Hallucinations.' I wrote it for a dear friend of mine who has a history of not being able to see how truly special, kind, and wonderful she is; and I don't think she's alone in that. I want to make music that helps, heals, or makes you feel amazing, and this is the start of that journey.
I don't think you realize this...but you are the main character. When I look at you, I see the person inside saying, "Am I doing this right?" I see the part of you that lives somewhere in the 'deep down'; even if it's buried by your ego. I see the you that is fearful of being rejected, being wrong, being 'found out', not being seen, understood, and loved. I see you. I see the tiny orb of light emanating from your soul that we all carry within us; joining us somewhere in a place free of time and structure. I see you from the 'Passenger Seat,' and it's magnificent.
