Hey guys, here’s a sneak peak at a piece I wrote for a company in LA. I can’t officially release it as far as I’m aware, but here’s a squiz for you.
I have been reflecting on this connection I have with California, and composed this when I got back from LA earlier this year.
I first went to California when I was about 13, and on the last night we had a BBQ on the beach. My Dad and I took a stroll up the shoreline and watched the sunset. There was practically no one there (and had been crammed all holiday) it was such a peaceful moment. I remember my Dad being very ruminative, as if he had achieved a dream himself by taking us all to Disneyland.
It was the trip of a lifetime at the time, and something that we’d only dreamed of, as my family did not have a lot of money when I was growing up. I felt really alive and excited, and calm and peaceful somehow too. I drew on this memory when writing this piece of music..
Just wanted to share..
