I have a brand new song to be released June 18th, 2018!!!
Funny thing is that I wrote and recorded this song originally back in 2015.
Why haven’t I released it until now?
I have no idea.
Or let’s say, I had no idea until now… You see — since I’ve lately been struggling with my mental health and anxiety, I was sooo worried that I wouldn’t be able to go on my tour. I spent months planning and emailing, all the while dreading the day that I’d have to leave home, for fear that I wouldn’t be able to follow through with all my promises. Then, during my first show I had a slight AHA moment. I remembered this song I wrote so long ago yet never released. I thought it would be a good time to start including it in my set list on the tour.
Not only have I been singing Keep on Movin’ at every show, but I’ve also been dedicating it to myself every time. At first I was worried this would come across as narcissistic, but it just doesn’t matter what everyone thinks anymore. I need to dedicate this song to myself each time I perform it exactly for the main reason why I wrote it to begin with: I’ll keep on movin’ for me. No matter what happens, I need to keep going, keep taking one more breath, and keep putting one foot in front of the other.
And you do too.
(Or mista! ???? )
This tour has just begun, and already it’s been a deeper exploration of this motivation in myself and why I was given the talent and ability that I have… and why I have to keep going. And why we ALL have to keep going. It’s so important to spread the message to “Keep On Movin” for my beautiful audience and the whole wide world to understand that despite all of our challenges (and we ALL have our own challenges), we need to keep moving forward, for ourselves.
So, this song Keep on Movin’ is dedicated to myself, AND to you out there, who is also going through your own version of pain and struggles on this journey called life. Whether it’s depression or anxiety or cancer or a lost loved one or an addiction recovery or a rainy day or a marathon to run ahead, or a salad vs a pizza!
You get the idea. ????
Keep on movin’ my friend. We’ll all be alright.
I can’t wait for this song to come out. 🙂
PS. You can pre-order, pre-download and pre-listen to the track before it gets released anywhere else online right HERE. Just cause you’re so awesome and special, and who doesn’t love feelin’ special?! If you’d rather buy or stream via iTunes or Spotify, you can get your pre-orders in on itunes right here, or start streaming on Spotify June 18th!!
Just an FYI: If you want to truly support your favourite artists and creators and continue encouraging them to make beautiful music, buying is always better. Radio streaming royalties gives us pennies compared to an actual $1 song purchase. And $1 may not seem like a lot, but it can really add up! So if you have the option, please BUY rather than stream – (or do both! LOL) as buying will help all your fave artists that you love the most on a financial standpoint.
PPS. Please let me know what you think about the song! I’d loooove to hear your feedback!
PPPS. (and then I promise I’m done!) Special thanks to Josh Williams Photography for taking such a stunning pic in Joshua Tree National Park last year on the tour!
