WELCOME TO MY BRAND NEW BLOG! DAY 1
Thanks for joining me! I'm super excited about this new channel of creation and communication. I've created this blog to share with you my journey towards fulfillment and growth.
A few weeks ago I started a brand new project, my brand new Conscious Pop Music Project.
Even though I've been a musician my whole life, I still haven't been able to create a music project in which I would feel completely free and in which I could completely express myself.
Over the years, I've been through a lot trying to make it work in different music projects (I'll share some horror stories later!)and I ended up working as a music educator once I felt overwhelmed and too tired to keep pursuing a career as an artist.
Then I helped thousands of people to sing for 15 years. I became an awesome voice coach sharing my technique and motivation to make other's peoples dreams a reality. I got millions of views on Youtube and Facebook. I taught more than 900 students online and more than 350 in person.
I got carried away by my music education business and I stopped performing. I got involved in the business world as an online marketing consultant. Years went by and I also struggled with depression.
Finally I got the financial stability I was looking for when I took a break from performing music. However, my soul started crying...
I started waking up in the middle of the night thinking about my music career, experiencing regret... feeling that by not being a singer, I was completely faking it in my life.
I was waking up thinking about it. I got these recurring thoughts tormenting me constantly.
Then, I started feeling pain in my chest. It was like a sharp compression in my plexus. I knew exactly what it was... it was my soul screaming out!
I couldn't repress it anymore. I had to listen...
I needed to to what I was born to be. I needed to be a musician again.
I decided to use all my experience going online to recreate myself and restart from scratch.
But what should my project be about?
I realize that the answer was very obvious.... the music I create from now on has to be an expression of the path of self growth and spirituality I've been going through for the past 15 years.
My original songs have always been "deeper" than what people are usually ready to consume within the mainstream shallowness... (I've even been criticized by that, by being "way too serious").
When starting to figure out what my new music would be about, I rejected opportunities of creating commercial songs about parties and having fun...
That wasn't me...I just don't resonate with those distractions of the world many people get lost with. I refused to add into the shallowness of the world. It'd be ridiculous for me to be singing about Prada shoes and Gucci jeans and clubs and parties and how I can shake my a**.
I want to add positivity to the world. I want to connect and make music for people who are on a path of self growth. Those folks, who just like me, are willing to improve their lives and the world by transforming themselves. By connecting with their own hearts and souls.
This is what this new project is about and this is the journey I want to share with you on this blog.
I'll be updating you on the status of my project and on what's going on internally and externally in the meantime. I'll also use this a way of journaling keeping it honest, and as a way to stay consistent even through the challenging times.
I really appreciate your support, for stopping by and for listening.
Let's do this music for the soul together!
