music is life, music is breath, music is us

Prince

It seems like my music site is becoming one long list of eulogies. I hate that I have to keep saying goodbye to artists that impacted me as a composer and musician. In this case here we have lost the closest thing to a god music has ever had.

Prince was a an artist that never compromised his vision for anyone. His willingness to always push his music forward regardless of popular trends was truly wondrous. Prince had this incredible ability to create a rebirth of his art with every new record. You always knew it was him with the wailing voice and soaring guitar; nevertheless you knew it was something brand new from a true genius.

Though his spirit has left this planet, his influence will always remain. I’ll always remember to be me and only me when I write music. It’s how Prince would want it. This is, after all, how he created his sound with every note played. Prince was himself, as only he could be.
