Song 42 - From The Dust - is ready for your listening pleasure! No song that I've written has hit me as hard as this one. I can't believe how much truth and space it gives me. This song is so many good things that I never intended it to be - it almost feels like I didn't write it... In fact, I'm almost certain I didn't. I hope it helps you wherever you are at. Listen in my bio
I went to see Beauty and the Beast today and I cried a lot. I also did a lot of other things. But I've been thinking about love, and how I've never fallen into that before. (With someone other than Jesus)
I can't get you off of my mind
You're taking my thoughts
You're taking this peace of mine
You're dropping no hints
I ain't wasting no time
You're dropping no hints
I ain't wasting this heart of mine
Cause I'm not clueless
I've never been in love before
So I can't say that I know for sure
But I've never been in love before
Cause I know that it's worth so much more
Created the ''two chords challenge". Loved @franzinee_ 's outcome, who, nicely enough, participated. I'll put the link for my whole song in my profile description. #songwriting#deliberation#2chords#ukulele

Just made the Hit List tonight on #NewMusicMonday with host @JacquelineJax : http://tobtr.com/9811107
IT ALL STARTED IN LAGOS NIGERIA, AT THE AGE OF 16. I MADE MY FIRST TRACK WHICH WAS FOR LAUGHS BUT BECAME SOMETHING THAT GOTPEOPLE SINGING ALONG TO. THIS LED TO MY JOINING A BAND CALLED (FLP) ("BUT DID NOT LAST BECAUSE OF MISUNDERSTANDING. I KEPT WORKING ON BECOMING BETTER , ENDED UP HOOKING UP WITH ONE OF MY OLD BAND MATE CALLED SUGA. WE BECAME SUGA N SWIFT, BUT DID NOT LAST "). I AM NOW ON MY FEET ALONE TRYING TO GET MY DREAM OUT TO THE WORLD AND I AM DETERMINED IN GETTING MY NAME OUT THERE NOT LETTING IT DIE WITH ME .
I am a warrior.
I am a wizard.
I am an alchemist.
I am a singer songwriter.
I am a comedian.
I am an artist.
I am a lover.
I am a man.
These are but labels.
Who am I really?
I am the Presence.
I am a vessel of the divine.
I am an infinite being who strapped on a human suit to play the human game.
I am light.
I also play in the shadows, of my human form so that the illusion of separation feels more real.
But... It does not change my REALITY or the TRUTH.
I am SO much more than my human form, and I also LOVE playing in the trenches, the experiences, the emotions, the pain, the struggles, the happiness, the joy, and even the sadness, because they are all the same, just different vibrational frequencies of energy.
As I watch the human part of me, and the smaller conversations of the ego, thinking that I am only my body or my mind, I am reminded of the REAL REALITY that which is ME.
And I breathe in and say thank you, for this amazing ride and showing me all the parts I get to play and pretend to be on this incredible ride, this gift, and still know that... I AM THAT I AM.
Pure love and light.
A bad ass spiritual being who is playing the human game and having outrageous fun with every ounce of juiciness called life.
I AM ALIVE AND HOW F**KING amazing is that?! Life is now, enjoy the ride... #songwriting#soulexpression#flow#music#spiritual#spirit#creative#creatives#soul#conscious#consciousness#consciousentrepreneur#consciousmusic#consciousliving#singersongwriter#singer#songwriter#poetry#spokenword#selfexpression#evolve
After a long day of #writing and #songwriting it's nice to get some food with the girls and just take a break. Grateful to start the week off feeling super productive and ready to take on the challenges of life. Right now, one of those challenges is keeping a #dairyfree diet. Dairy isn't good for #singers and it's best to leave it out of a diet completely when you perform vocals for a living. It's hard. I love cheese. I mean, you don't get it, I LOVE CHEESE 🧀 so to stop consuming #dairy this year has been one of the hardest things ever. 😭 Still, eating really yummy #koreanfood softens the blow. Plenty of ramen too! 🍜 amirite? #cristalmariebackstage

I was moving things around and came across Honey ( this here uke ) haven't played her in a while and it feels so good to hear her again. Tuned up. First take. I'm striving to be more in the moment, and just do it and give it away with less worry and fuss. And also,I ran out of room on my phone.
And I'm concurrently (begrudgingly) sorting through paperwork here.
Anyway. New song, wee riff, need to noodle.
The way of the heart,
Its not unflinching
it won't withstand it.
