I have started making songs and would describe them as having a jack johnson feel to them. Easy listening and pure awesome tunes have filled my ears for the past year and all thanks to jack i have gained a small profile of songs. I write some of my songs based on environmental issues such as climate change, my song "Yellow+Blue=Green. The tune is about useing different transport methods in contrast to such methods as cars and planes, which we all know harm the environment. I went on a bike ride with my friends and came up with the line "Leaving Cracks In The Pavement But Not The Sky".
This line sorta fitted with the moment and therefore the song was born. It was the first real song that truly meant something to me and gave a cool little story. There were songs before that such as "Moving Through The Shadows" a song i wrote in prep for my exams, not time for revising and just watching the world go by. I also wrote a song in called "Bring Me Hawaii" which is a tribute to jack johnson and for everything he has done for me. Im also currently looking into seting up my own beach gig as well as possibly going for a "busking for charity".
In continueing my song creating i made the song "Face Value" a really quirky happy feel good tune haha. The song was inspried from a younger experiance of being bullied, Many people are around the world and the message "Dont Judge A Book By It's Cover" sheds light on the subject. I also added Uke to the start of the song which i think sounds great. Anyways ill not babble any longer than i already have peace out everyone thanks jack MORE TUNES COMING SOON !!!
