Why did you select this song as your current single?
it’s definitely a stand out track on the record. And the message is something I think we all struggle with… having trouble saying what we really mean at times….speaking our truth. I’m always trying to get to the heart of it when I write…. and I think that’s something we’re all just trying to do in life…
If there is a video for the song, please explain the concept?
Yes, there is a video due to premeire on May 14. It is being promoted to over 450 channels nationwide so fingers are crossed! It’s about a girl (me) sitting at her piano trying to write a song and struggling with writer’s block. She’s trying to express the words she really feels but is saying words that aren’t really what she wants to say. Her true thoughts and words begin to appear on her skin and in her journal. She starts to find the confidence to become her fully expressed self.
Please tell us how this single relate to the rest of the Album?
Well, the record is called ‘All This Time’…. it took a long time to finally put this record out for many reasons…. but the main one is finally finding my voice as an artist. And I think that’s what this single ‘Words Are in the Way’ is really about…..getting past the struggle to express one’s truth….sometimes that can take some time…
What was the writing process for the song?
Pretty simple really for this one. My band and I did a show in NYC before the release of the record and my producer, Rob Deaner, said to me that we needed another uptempo. So over Christmas break, I sat down at the piano and this one just flowed out in about 20 minutes….much like when I wrote ‘The Lover That You Are’, a dance song that went to #1 on the Billboard dance charts years ago, that I penned while living in a nunnery in NYC… sometimes they just come out that way….
Please tell what it would be like to see you in person performing this song?
Alot of fun really….it’s the kind of song that makes you feel good….there’s a lightness to it despite the struggle with expression….. it’s like taking the struggle all in stride and dancing through life anyway…
