I live in Toronto, Canada, and I was pretty fortunate to have found a place close to Woodbine Beach as soon as I arrived. I love going to the beach, at any time of the day, no matter the season, walks on the beach always calm me down, put my mind at ease. I always get peaceful vibes from the Lake that inspire me to write.
I went to the beach yesterday and took pictures and videos that have given me inspiration for a couple of lyrics. Positive lyrics and a positive melody, it’s a song about getting back on track after almost giving up.
It’s a very personal song, because I contemplated quitting music for a moment last year. Between the pandemic, the necessity of finding a new place, the loss of some friends, it was a tough time for my creative mind, and I thought I would be better off not playing music/singing/writing songs. I was wrong! And thankfully, I am still able to find inspiration in landscapes, peoples’ smiles and quietude!
Here are some of the pictures that have inspired me (I don’t retouch the photos that I take, so they are a bit raw, just how I like them):
