I would say that music is my creative medium - and that for most of my life, my voice has been my only instrument. I have just recently started playing ukulele and guitar, and I perform covers and originals out and around Providence both solo and in collaboration with other local artists (which is always wonderful and super fun).
I think singing just seemed like a natural part of life to me. Neither of my parents were musicians, but they both had a love and passion for music that they passed onto my brother and me. There was always music in my house - whether it was my mom singing to us, or my parents playing their favorite artists, like The Beatles and James Taylor. Music and singing were also ingrained in my early education at Meadowbrook Waldorf School - we sang folk songs and rounds, and played recorders every day - which I always loved.
I think my biggest creative fear is a common but irrational one - that I do not have the capability to improve upon my skills or that my creative well will run dry - but, I like to think that there is a neverending source of creativity in the universe and that if I allow myself to be open to creative experiences without putting my own perameters on them, I will continually be able to grow as an artist (and I believe that everyone has this potential).
Sometimes I am also afraid of getting too serious about pursuing music, because I fear that it will lose its magical quality if it becomes something that I feel like I have to do and get better at in order to make a living or "make it" in some way. I think being aware of this fear helps remind me to always a keep a sparkle of fun and playfullness in what I do musically (and hopefully otherwise too!).
I know that it is good to have goals, but I feel like I do not necessarily have one definitive goal for myself and my music - I just want to be able to continue creating and performing music, which for me would involve continuing to collaborate and learn from other artists; improving my skills with my voice and the instruments I play now (and experimenting with new ones); and growing as a songwriter. If I can actually figure out a way to do this for a living in a way that does not make it the experience lose its lustre, that would be great too - but, it is not essential.
