“Identity” out now!

Identity is out now! It’s the first single of a series of personal, introspective songs. Come join me on this personal journey of finding out who I really am in my essence. I can’t wait to show you more of me with these songs!

Who Would I Be Without The Music In Me?

Life isn’t easy and we all have something to help get us through. Identity is about my biggest lifeline ‘music’ and the inner struggle that comes with it. Like one lyric of the song says: “It’s a blessing and a curse at the same time”.

I wrote this song when I had just started my first “real grown-up” job. It took all of my energy and I didn’t have anything left for music. It made me feel bad about myself. Music isn’t just a dream, it’s an identity. Music is my way of expressing myself, standing for something and it gives me a reason to be proud of myself. Without it I feel lost.

When COVID broke out, it gave the song another, deeper layer; lots of people couldn’t do their thing anymore. And in that emptiness, you find yourself. It forced us to rethink the way we set up our lives.

Lyrics “Identity”

Who would I be without this voice of mine
Who would I be without a melody and a rhyme
Who would I be without the music in me

It has more power than it should have over me
It is more than just a dream
It has more power than it should have over me
It is more than just a dream
It’s my whole identity

Would I still be good enough
Would I still be special and worthy of love
It gets me heard, gives me worth, a purpose in this life
It’s a blessing and a curse at the same time

It has more power than it should have over me
It is more than just a dream
It has more power than it should have over me
It is more than just a dream
It’s my whole identity

Ohohoh, ohohoh
Ohohoh, ohohoh

What is left of me when the dream has died
When the ship has sailed and all I ever did was try

It has more power than it should have over me
It is more than just a dream
It has more power than it should have over me
It is more than just a dream
It’s my whole identity
Yeah yeah
It’s my whole identity
Yeah yeah

It has more power than it should have over me
It is more than just a dream
It’s my whole identity
