people always say “write from the heart” and “from personalexperiences“, so the theatre show fulfills just that. i wrote this from the very personal experience of how i came to meet my boyfriend, and the adventures and journey we have gone on since our relationship started. but, to others, it is a song that expresses the magic of accidentally meeting someone who has now become a piece of you that you just can’t live without, and how your life has now changed very much for the better because the stars aligned in just the perfect way.
this little ditty was born from the requirement of “all pieces must be original” to fit Missouri S&T’s project called No Shame Theatre i was participating in at the time.
2. brown eyes
4. without a doubt
6. raindrops feat. Logan Miller
blue eyes and bowties was born out of several late nights/early mornings spent pouring my heart into every plunk of the keys, in a cold and empty SIUe piano practice room. brown eyes is the first piece I ever wrote and is the only track that started originally guitar, which I play very poorly, mind you. Fun fact, all the tight lady harmonies and ambient “echo-y” vocals are done by yours truly. No choir keyboard piano involved there!
Some of these tracks are light hearted and speak of a love found, while others dream of a love lost they wish they never felt. All in all, each track was written with real stories and emotion behind them. Catchy melodies, angelic vocal harmonies and a whole array of “ear candy” instrumentals carry the weight of each track. I hope you grow to love listening to them as much as I loved writing and creating them for you. Enjoy!
