Today I am releasing the song Words Can Make You as a digital download on my website and on major online stores (Spotify, Apple Music etc.). This is the 1st single from my upcoming debut album. I wrote the piano motif for Words Can Make You 10+ years ago and subsequently refined the composition and added the lyrics. I wrote and performed the music for all the instruments on this track. The song has gone through an evolution, including being written out as sheet music which I am making available on my website. This song and the music I created for my upcoming album was created with the intent that it can be performed live by a band or ensemble. I have eclectic taste in music, which I think you will find is reflected in the music I create, but I would say this song is an upbeat, soulful rock ballad with a touch of jazz. The song Words Can Make You is a personal narrative from the perspective of an experienced adult. I think anyone can learn and grow at any point in their life if they are willing to take on challenges and embrace change. This happened for me as the story in this song tells. Not all the music I make has lyrics; I like to choose my words carefully and if none come to me for a song, that’s OK; I let the music speak for itself.
