Enjoy, and please share! And get ready! Pre-orders for Be Bold begin April 7th!
"Brightest Light" is a fun, lighthearted acoustic song with some ukulele flair. I wrote this song when I was in Hawaii for an internship. Naturally, I was really missing my sweetheart, so I wrote a song about us. It may sound cliché, but his smile really does brighten my day! Sometimes the sunshine can't even do that. And so, sitting on the beach on the North Shore of Oahu, I strummed my ukulele and sang about when we'd see each other again. Attached is the very first recording idea from my voice memos.
Yours in music,
