Whilst I was there I started writing my first album. Although I can't sing or play any instrument, doesn't mean I can't be an artist of some sort. Actually, back in June I said; just because I don't draw, paint or play an instrument doesn't mean I'm not an artist. Work is in progress. But that was based on a new kind of artist.
This album is just a collection of thoughts and reflections, but suppose they will be built around being songs. But it's a journey of myself, but themed around the ocean. Which I have always loved and been drawn to.
When I was in my apartment room, this came to me...
I swam through the depths of the ocean in my heart to find everything I needed. On the journey back I let all the things I didn't need sink. I can imagine it having a William Orbit and Guy Sigsworth production.
It's kind of weird, but I started to become really obsessed with Madonna's Ray Of Light album just before I went away. And when I was on holiday, I kept listening to it and the song Swim. So I used this and my love for the ocean for inspiration.
A month later, I came up with a final tracklist. This is the result of uncovering, accepting and fulfilling who I am and meant to be. This is my album, Ocean.
10. Quantity Is Not Power
Today I had the idea of a second album called Making Waves. This one would be more about relationships and my career. But I need to finish this one first! Let's see how this goes!
