As promised, here is the second edition of Behind the Music, with the story of lyrics, sneak previews, and other exclusive content from the making of Be Bold, releasing May 5th. Enjoy, and please share!
I initially wrote "Come Close" as a sultry R&B song for a web-based dance channel pitch. It did pretty well but wasn't the final selection. I then rewrote the entire lyrics to reflect my own relationship, and remixed the drums and bass for a different feel. Now, with two songs sounding pretty similar ("Close" and "Chance"), I had to decide which to use for the album. Discussing this conundrum with some other musicians, I decided to make a hybrid with the best of each version. One of the most intimate stories of the album, it's a tale of love and dancing.
The "Close" preview is attached here. Visit this dropbox folder to hear "Chance" preview: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/gzd9ibn3acast9u/AAAzYrl0KblXANqs02DW9c1ea?dl=0
