Why is nothing all?

The writing process is fairly inconsistent for me and I like it that way, which leads me to believe why I’m able to write such various songs that rarely sound the same or delve in sonic resonances. Though, it is easy to have a biased opinion. I first came up with the riff for “Nothing is all,” and kept it on the back burner for sometime until I revisited it, came up with the concept in my little brain and then decided to take a chance on the concept and just hit record instead of flesh it out completely. I’m content with the result and it’s possibly the first time I’ve ever been able to press record with only a riff and come out content. Why should you care? You shouldn’t that much, but the point I’m attempting to make is that overtime I’ve become better at songwriting because I’m consistently inconsistent. What does that mean? I’m consistently writing, which only makes you improve and I’m inconsistent with the environment I put myself in and the choices I make in said environment. Environment meaning, in my bedroom, outside, in the living room, on a walk, taking a poo, or taking a big risk on a riff idea and hitting record. As you may already know, I’m going to be releasing a 16 track self titled album next week and I’m having the usual reaction of feeling fully confident to feeling uncertain. There is a lot unknown, that is part of this journey, but what I do know is that this album is the most honest I’ve ever been and I can only hope I continue to feed this honest compulsory and hold steadfast of fear and instead feel resolve and reason. Thanks for taking the time to read this and for your continued support. Lastly, here is the video for “Nothing is all,” which I’m releasing before the album comes out, which is probably not the best marketing idea.
