Good afternoon, friends! I am currently sitting in a coffee shop, drinking an iced chai and brainstorming ideas. I am also now writing this blog post. 😉
A few minutes ago, I hit the send button and sent off a new single for distribution. Check out this promo video I posted yesterday!
I wrote Tidal Wave a couple weeks ago. Unlike my usual songwriting methods, I composed the music first and then went from there. It was a fun challenge.
There’s been a lot on my heart lately. Life can be overwhelmingly dark at times, am I right?
So much so, that I found myself having a hard time finding the words to say. Even in prayer. It was difficult.
So I asked God how to pray and to help center me during this time, when certain parts of life seem dim and grey.
That’s where Tidal Wave came from. A very sad Stephanie, on a very sad day.
I can’t help but smile, as I write this. The song is very bright and energetic. It’s not a sad ballad, but more of a celebration. I can’t wait to share it with you on August 1st.
The moment I finished the track, I knew I needed to get some shots of the ocean for the video. The following week, some friends decided to take a spontaneous trip to Santa Cruz and invited me to come along.
Not only did I get all the footage my heart desired for the video, I was very refreshed from the change of scenery and fresh air. It was good.

In case you haven’t heard, I am giving away a song for FREE. You can get your digital copy of Brighter Than the Sun in my music store!
