I've been thinking a lot about life and love lately. Through my own observation, I've witnessed the interesting stories that we tell ourselves about what love actually is. Likewise, I've found myself contemplating my motives when it comes to love and life.
My own views of life and love can transform radically from day to day. Some days I feel completely inspired by them both and other days I can feel completely drained of both of them. The thing is, I have a lot of love to give and I seek Life through the heart of pure, unconditional love. I can really see no other way than this for me to operate in this life.
My experiences and my life and the love that I share are what I draw upon when I create music and all of that is where I personally find inspiration. When you're pouring your heart into a song, pouring all your pain and suffering into the prose; that's what makes great music. It is what heals me and through my sharing with the world, heals others too.
It's a most humble service that I have been sent to this planet to provide. Creating music and healing through music makes my life so full and alive and amazing! Nothing brings us together quite like a good song. You know that moment: when you look around and everyone is dancing and jiving to the same rhythm and the same beat.
Music is the heartbeat of my life. It is the language of my heart. Which is why I've been in the studio creating new music. We haven't quite nailed down a release date for the new stuff just yet, but I can tell you a new track is coming very, very soon.
In the meantime, I have a few shows coming up and it would honor me greatly if you would bless me with your time and presence at one of the upcoming shows. If you can make it, October 1st, some friends are throwing me a birthday party and it sure would be great to see ya!
Thanks for your continued support of the Melissa Ivey Music Experience. I could not do this without YOU!
