In talking with a friend today, I was reminded when I discovered the relationship between music and poetry. TL;DR – They’re cousins! Throughout the past few years, I have written words that I didn’t initially know if they were a poem or a song.
My first ever poem was based on blues lyrical structure and had music themes present. Years later, I turned that poem into a song, adding further lyrics. I’ve also intentionally made song lyrics poetic; in a way, I can’t help myself.
Anywho, I want to share a concept album with you that I’ve completed (for now). It’s not on Spotify, Apple Music or any other platform. I’ve decided my songs are best served for my processing and as an outlet for my creativity. If I play it for family or close friends and they like it, fine.
However, I will be posting the lyrics to the 5 songs under 5 parts. The album is entitled “Lady In Waiting.” I would be so happy to have you comment below with where you think the album is going and what is up with the girl, Irene. Hint: the album is an overall story, where each song tells a part of that story.
