Art Begets Art
It's no secret that one of my biggest inspirations comes from other art, whether it be plays, movies, paintings, or instrumentals! That's exactly how "Dishes" came about. The song was originally an instrumental by Ta-ku called "Heartbreak" that I fell in love with on first listen. I remember hearing it and immediately thinking of random strings of lyrics. After piecing all of the strings together, I had written lyrics for the entire song!
From there, I SAT ON IT!
Music has always been a frustrating process for me because it's hard to get all of the pieces together (instrumental creation, communication sound ideas, finding the right engineers, etc.). So I wrote these vivid lyrics and did nothing with them for almost a year. Don't judge me, please! But after that year, an opportunity surfaced for me to record "Dishes" with the founder of Vibeheavy, Arif G. Best believe, I was ready to sieze the moment!
Thank you to all of the artists who inspire without knowing it! That is what keeps art alive!
