This new album is taking shape and will be released in August!
It takes its title from the song Breakers' Roar: and as always, when I write the words for my songs I like to use imagery from nature to capture and symbolize the feelings I am writing about. I think a good song is one that people can identify with: the subject isn't necessarily autobiographical or even particularly specific or too personal - instead, it should be universal, in my opinion. That way the song can speak to everyone.
And using nature to capture a feeling or mirror a thought is another way of being universal since we all have a relationship with nature! Some people are attracted to trees, and forests, or mountains or flowers or expansive fields, while others love the ocean and rocky or sandy shores.... I particularly resonate with oceans and waves.
So watch for my use of nature in the new songs coming in the album, and in the meantime, you can look at nature in the songs I have already released. In particular Breakers' Roar and Wild Fire! But also Calling, Fly, and Snow Falls from the album TRACES.
