QUIET LITTLE HOUSE
Quiet Little House is a Christmas song about holding onto the love and memories of people and times that may not be with us anymore. Last year I lost my grandmother and great grandmother within a short period of time. As you can imagine the holidays that year weren’t the same. It was really hard.
So, I wanted to write a song that speaks to that kind of change and the flood of memories we are often faced with during the holidays after losing someone we love. Through that experience I learned that holidays are more than our traditions. They’re about friends, family, the people we love and the memories we’ve made with them. As time goes on and things change, the holidays give us a chance hold on to that love and those memories for they will always be a part of us. And, that’s a good thing.
Beautiful Illusion is a collection of songs about perseverance, growth and healing. They reach down into the hearts of the hurting with messages of hope and healing.
Beautiful Illusion reminds us that our struggles are an important part of our journey, and that it is okay to hurt. It also reminds us that those struggles won’t last forever. There is a light at the end of the tunnel, even if you can’t see it right now; and, when you get there, which you will eventually do, you will be have grown and become stronger.
The EP itself consists of six (6) songs, plus a bonus instrumental track. They are all very different in tempo and style. Some are acoustic ballads, whiles others are fast-paced dance beats. Together, they tell a story of the struggle and hope of the beautiful illusion.
