Summer Tunes & Beach Trips

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.

Also . . .

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!
