Today I will receive a package with 1000 CD's of a project I've been working on for the last seven years. Baby it's been a long time coming! My first album of fourteen all original songs is finished. The lyrics and music span over more than a decade. I am so very grateful to see this project come to completion. My songwriting started out as my outward expression of internal contemplation and as I have grown emotionally and spiritually, so has my musicianship and songwriting capability. The fourteen original songs take you through my journey of musings over a decade and how my interperatation of love has been redefined over the years, relationship by relationship, by the hands of Father Time. "Man With Two Faces" the most young of all all the songs birth begins the theme of the journey about "Looking for Love in all the wrong places" and finding it there. "A Thousand Directions" is an introspective song I wrote in my early twenties about a crossroads from childhood into adulthood and the path ahead. Twists and turns along that unexpected path leads you into "Moonlight Magic", a Latin salsa groove full of fantasy and fun. The innocense of a potential love and the freedom to let it be is the defining moment of "Come To Me". "Sweet Love" is a sexy, seductive, lustful song that tells the story of two lovers in the vulnerable moment when friendship dances accross the lines into something more. "Forever Friend" is a heart swellling orchestral tune that captures the moment where you finally find that special something after "having loved and lost and learned to love again". The title track, "Shape This Love" is a song that echoes the sentiment, "it was better to have loved and lost, than to have never loved at all". This song speaks of finding true love in unexpected circumstances, yet only getting a glimpse before having to transform that love by letting go. The album ultimately ends very apropos with the track, "Learn to Love Yourself". The song ends with the wisdom, "You can't expect someone to love you, if they haven't learned to love themselves. No, you can't expect someone to love you, if you don't learn to love yourself". It's all about love and the transformation of our lives and our hearts through time. We all live, we learn, we grow. This is my journey in song. I hope you enjoy!!!!
