Using music to empower myself and others
Creating music is integral to my well-being. I use music as a way to self-heal, celebrate and showcase broad themes in engaging ways as well as to share and teach spiritual principles in easy to absorb, ways.
Write A New Song A Week For A Year
I've challenged myself to write a new song a week for a year for creative and professional development. Here are previews of the tracks created so far. If a track is strong enough, I'll get that track professionally recorded, mixed, and mastered. Listen to the full-length tracks on my song challenge podcast episodes every Sunday along with the story and teaching behind it and any challenges I faced in the creation process.
"Lady! You have a vibe! Go forth and keep making music!"
The tracks below are a small sample of the music I've written and recorded in the last couple of years. Each track has its own flavour, style, and unique message. The last two tracks feel very different from the tracks I'm creating in my Song Challenge, yet there's always this thread running through my music of wanting to uplift, empower and enlighten the listener in some way. So I guess that who we are at our core never really changes even if our outer style changes.
"I'm glad I ran across you, your soul comes through when you sing and becomes part of the song. Well done Yve, Ima fan."
William J Urmson, Warren OH
Soul Riding is a rhythmic and stripped-back Conscious Music Track that tells the story of how I tap into and act from the wisdom of my soul. This track was the real start of understanding my musical style - actively conscious lyrics with a soulful vibe.
"Good Question? Great answer! I really like this!"
Jordan E. Spivack, Composer
Good Question is my deep-dive into identity, race, racism, and who we are without our stories about who we are, all blended into a chilled and ambient call and response track.
RISE LIKE A PHOENIX
Sweeping stringed chorus and almost staccato verse, with vocals that explore wanting to heal without doing the work to heal. "I wanted to rise like a phoenix, fully-formed in my magnificence."
