Behind the Song:
These Are the Memories
Welcome back to Behind the Song!
The next song I wanted to tell you about is 'These Are the Memories'...
Behind the Lyrics:
I wanted the lyrics in “These Are the Memories” to take you on a journey through all of the seasons: starting with spring and ending in winter.
As someone with seasonal depression, I’ve
always felt like the best, happiest version of myself in the summertime. But I wanted this song to remind myself (and YOU) that throughout all seasons of life, there can be so much beauty and
happiness to be found. ❤️
This song really means a lot to me, and I hope you hear that and connect with it in the music!
Behind the Music:
During the time I wrote “These Are the Memories,” I was going through a rough patch and dealing with a lot of crippling anxiety.
There were many days when I couldn’t even leave my house because I was so anxious and overwhelmed.
It was around this time that I discovered and fell deeply in love with the work of Brazilian guitarist, Luiz Bonfa. I listened to his music for hours every day and I found that it helped center me.
“These Are the Memories” is inspired by
my love for Luiz Bonfa’s work.
I hope this song can make you feel free because that’s what it does for me. 😊💗
I hope you've been enjoying learning more about these songs. I've got one more Behind the Song from the record to send you tomorrow!
