The Social Experience......Helping the Unsigned Artist Get Heard!!!
My newest release is called Don't Assume, and it was released thru ReverbNation and can be found on Spotify and YouTube. It is also posted on my Poze page. This song was written by a friend of mine who goes by the name Dragula2Kilo. He gave this to me over a year ago, and I finally got around to turning it into a song. I had to modify it some so it would fit into a song, but for the most part I kept all of his lyrics. I composed the music to accompany the lyrics, and all the vocals are by me, as well as, the arrangement. I also self-produced it.
The song is about three different individuals, one in each verse, and their certain hardship they go through, and the chorus is the message of the song. Don't assume someone is alright just because they seem alright on the outside. When he wrote this song, he had in mind a kind of rap style and this is what I came up with. I don't really think any other type style would fit. I designed the cover using my eyes peeking through the clouds, because there is a line in the song "there are some things the eyes can hide" which means someone can have this happy "mask" on their face, even though they may be dying inside. Let me know what you think. I always welcome constructive criticism.
This song is going to be a part of an album compilation with the a mental health theme and how people deal with things on a daily basis. I, myself have Borderline Personality Disorder and each day is a struggle for me, which will be told in Her Demons Lie which is what I am currently working on. This album is not going to be a "woah's me, feel sorry for me" type album. The purpose is to let those who do have mental health issues know that they are okay and to not be ashamed; it took me five years to accept it and not be ashamed, but now I embrace it, because it is a part of me and who I am, and just learn how to cope with it. At the same time I want to give those who don't have any mental health issues a glimpse into the lives of us who do, and to know that our struggle is real. And that sometimes our environment is the cause of a lot of our problems. Mine was a relationship I had; I was really mental at times and even got crazy a few times, but after we parted, I realized that it wasn't me, it was the marriage, and who I was married to. Now, I'm not so bad; I just have what I call depression episodes every once in a while. So, if you are this kind of person, don't be ashamed and if you know a person with mental health issues, let them know that they are okay and help them evaluate what it is that causes them to have those issues. Thanks for listening and supporting my music! Peace,Love & Pixy Dust, Pixy<3
