sometimes I think about who I would’ve been if I was born in a different place, in different skin, in a different time, under a different name
sometimes I wonder if we still would’ve met
If we still would’ve had each other in the back of your car
if my firsts would’ve been reserved for you or another
sometimes I wonder if I would’ve still picked all my scabs and named all my scars
If I’d still burn my eyes from conversations with the sun and taint my body with smoke
I find myself in lyrics and stories, in people and places
I indulge in my addiction to the cadence of words
So much to ponder
Too much and too little
God I fucking love it
#ad I often find myself in new cities with new people, new stories, and new adventures to be had. All driven by a hunger deep inside me seeded at the center of my being that’s always chanting at me.
Are you being fearless in your devotion to your art?
Are you being bold in the steps you take to grow?
My answer is yes. Yes to life, yes to challenging myself, yes to exploring, yes to doing my thing!
Being on the road these past few months has given me the opportunity to work with artists in communities all over the country, rooting myself into the blood and soul of what I live and breathe for.
Now I wake up in Chicago, a city that’s raised artists I adore. Thank you @otterboxstyle for supporting my journey and passion to be the most fearless, most bold, most confident, and most honest version of myself that I could possibly be.
So go on, what are you waiting for?
DO YOUR THING ALREADY!
sitting in an airport terminal getting ready to head back to Chicago and it feels like my whole heart is being pulled and stretched. These humans are everything to me 💛🕺🏼 thank you for being my rocks and my roots, I love you all with every fiber of my being
My fambam is wild 🌻🌈💕
a very happy lake lady 🐢🤙🏼 I just want to capture these moments in jars and save them, that way one day when I’m old and wrinkly I can open them and feel the sunburn of summer on my skin and the sensation of cheeks that hurt too much from smiling on my face
These last couple months I’ve started integrating some healthy habits back into my life that I want to share with you guys 🌞
1. I start the first 20 mins of my day by saying positive affirmations and meditating. It’s changed everything for me. To begin my day by lovin’ on myself and taking time to be present my heart and mind feel warm and calm.
2. Taking time to set my phone aside whenever I feel like it. It’s so easy to get caught in the web of social media and that often leads us to compare ourselves to those we see online. but ITS NOT REAL! You are beautiful and your life is so precious, be here for it!
3. Dedicating at least an hour a day to doing what makes me happiest. I’ve been spending so much time writing new music and getting better at guitar, but this also includes taking time to go for walks or be with friends. I just make sure to set time aside to do what feels good to my soul.
What are some ways that you all like to take care of yourselves? I’d love to hear about it all to adopt into my self care routine 👼🏼
yooo have you listened to my new song Desert Mermaid? 🌵links in my bio and it’s also up on SoundCloud ya goons
Here’s a snip of us recording the song in the back of the van...thinking of sharing the whole video💛
NEW SONG.... introducing Desert Mermaid ✨ links ink bio my darlings
This is a live recording my dear friend Scottlyn and I did in the back of Garrett’s van in Moab shortly after meeting a few days earlier. I had started writing this song in Palm Springs, longing for times I’ve never known while staring at a rusting mermaid in a neighbors lawn. Scottlyn took this song and brought it to life with her words and spirit.
This is most definitely one of my favorite pieces out of the collection of music I’ve been writing on the road. I hope you enjoy this taste of what’s to come 💛
Also, oddly enough this is one of the only photos I have of Scottlyn and I haha
Should I release the video of the performance as well? 🕺🏼
no we’re not dating
yes we are daddy’s
fun facts about Garrett: he makes the BEST omelette I’ve ever had and his impromptu performances of Colors of The Wind have convinced me that he IS Pocahontas 🕺🏼 💛 this goober ...so lucky to have the best friends anyone could ask for
