Yesterday I had NO time or emotional capacity left to blog. It was a hard day emotionally… We saved my song “Hard to Carry” until last and I’m glad… It weighed on me all day. It reveals one of my deepest wounds (that God is healing). It’s about trying to learn how to forgive my old best friend. Which is one of the core reasons I have issues with letting people close to me. (And I’m working through that…) Mitch was seemingly blown away by my voice on this song (which says something). I said, well, it’s my heart (meaning my heart was singing it). If felt very theraputic and draining at the same time. Then, I went home and spent the evening with my stylist cleaning out my closet and making room for the new key wardrobe pieces she’s been finding for me.
So, yesterday, we wrapped up lead vocals and today we’re laying down acoustic tracks that I or Mitch play on. Tomorrow it’s on to background vox. Stephen and Charlie from Jars of Clay are coming over to sing backup for me. That’s humbling! Yakes Films will also be here to get more footage for the “Making of” video. Gonna be a fun day!
