What do you feel?

“A great song should lift your heart, warm the soul and make you feel good.”Colbie Caillat

Or not. What do I mean by that. Well I have long said that as artists the reason we need to feel what we do is to get out of our head. In order to reach someone’s heart and make them feel the emotion in our song (or painting or movement or words, etc.) we have to allow ourselves to go there first.

The “or not” comment above is in reference to this. Sometimes we feel good after we sing a sad song too. When the singer is all in and allows themselves live their song fully and completely, it gives the audience permission to allow themselves to feel the song completely and let some of the pain go.

When Marc and I write songs, we have decided that we want to focus on the positive of things. Anything that allows us to connect with how we feel is a good thing. Right now I am in the process of writing a sad song. Everytime I sing it, it feels good to be alive.
