Love U More was written at my first writing session with my now best friend Omar Khan. We literally had the song finished within an hour.
Usually when you write a song one of two things will happen; you will either sit there for hours banging your head against the wall trying to come up with ideas, or things flow naturally. Gratefully, on this particular day, it was one of those easy sessions that just flowed naturally. I realize there is this deep dark place inside me when i’m writing songs.
I always feel like I’m doing well in life or like I’m okay, but as soon as these songs come out, they are so emotional and full of pain; I start to question my mental state. LOL. It’s like I’ve got this sadness about me I can’t really describe.
I’ve had people ask me to write more “upbeat” and “happy” songs but the more I come into my own and figure out who I am as an artist, I more I realize the “happy go lucky” songwriter is just not me.
My songs are emotional and have a sense of loneliness in them because i suppose I like singing about the pain. When I listen to other artists I’m also drawn to low tempo emotional music.
Some of my favourite artists are BANKS, Spooky Black and James Blake. I love artists who draw from experience and I love it to reflect the music.
