Angela Marie – Singer/Songwriter, Guitar
Overwhelmed. Moved to tears. Concerned. Angered. Paralyzed. Elated. Impassioned. In love. Playful.
Some of the many reasons I create songs. It’s a way to cope and a way to connect. It’s a strong discipline yet unforced. Fingers placed on the fretboard hoping they will find their way. Years of consistent practice with drive to stay with it and trust that new sounds, rhythms, patterns, and words will come. Is the process inherent? Maybe, but it requires fortitude, grit, and vulnerability. Still, I’m always surprised with the outcome.
The process for me is something so personal yet it only comes into its fullest strength with other musicians and the audience. This is the most magical place that quickens my pulse and calms my soul. The inspiration of nature-animals, plants, humans, minerals, water, and fire- come together through the music. It’s a love that only gets stronger. It’s the place I am most alive.
