My song Second Guess Me is all about accepting yourself in all your stages, and not needing any sort of validation from anybody else.
I wrote this song around two years ago with an incredible musician, writer, and performer Chris Ayer.
He was playing the guitar and we started to hum different melodies, while coming up with the words at the same time.
I always love the songwriting process because each time it is different. In some writing sessions, I just have the melodies figured out, and I write the words later, in others it happens at the same time, and sometimes I know what I want to say but I don’t know the flow or the music that is going to be behind the words.
The Making of the Track
We went into the studio with Ryan Gilligan, who produced and mixed the song.
He was just laying out some ideas and then I recorded over the track.
It was a really simple track because it was meant to just be the foundation of the song, and he was going to add more to the production.
The “rough” version of the song was sitting on my computer for around one year, before I listened to it again in the car on my way to Palm Springs. I realized how much I loved the song, and the simple production.
I went back to see Ryan in his studio, we re-recorded the vocals, and I told him to leave the production as is. He added a couple of things to tie the whole song together, but he kept the simple vibe of the track, and I am so happy to be able to share it with you all today.
The Making of the Music Video
For this EP, I decided to do one minute videos for each song, instead of a full music video. Because I am an independent artist, it made more sense for me to do it this way.
I have also found that so many people nowadays have short attention spans, and that is why I loved
the idea of having short videos for each song as a preview of the track.
