North is False

Posted on

Songwriting is a very curious thing. Each time I finish a song I’m amazed, relieved and secretly scared that I’ll never be able to do it again.

Some songs are like a gift that I unwrap and there is the song. That’s all the effort it takes.

Some songs are like a massive lump of rock which I’ve had to carve the song out of, very carefully, making sure not to ruin it.

This song came the hard way. It was a bit of a fight at times, but I think it was worth the effort.

This year I’m aiming to write and record a song a month. This is March’s effort. (The video needed some April time.)

See what other creative types have been up to here.

  5. Hi Naomi – I have come to you via Our Creative Spaces as I was so delighted to find you adding music into what it otherwise a crafty oriented creative space each week.

    What a hauntingly beautiful song – and your voice has a lovely timbre (sorry if I have used a totally wrong term there, but I hope you know what I mean).

    I also am encouraged by your ethos “Creativity is the Creator’s will for me” – what a simple but effective phrase around which to create an abundant life. xo

    • That’s Alex’s skill there. He wrote the music and played all the instruments. I’m responsible for the melody and lyrics and some creative suggestions along the way!
