"I’m always writing songs if I’m not performing, singing or recording it. I love to write and create original music, whether it's just me and my guitar in the quiet realms, or in front of an audience. For my music, I draw upon subjects such as dreams and the strength of the human spirit to endure. I use a lot of metaphors inspired by Nature. Music is such an intangible force that connects and brings people together. Music is like breathing, and a huge part of who I am. Everything starts somewhere, as an idea or a spark. I’ve always been into music, art and various creative outlets. It’s something that’s been a very healing element within my life. Taking the good and the bad, the storms and the sunshine, all the experiences in life and bringing that out to be a positive force. Never give up and never let your spark go out. No matter what life may bring, let your unique spirit shine." ~ Melodie
