The Final Say – Original song

“Hate all you want to hate, I have the final say”… I wrote this last year as I processed a response I received about my music. Someone mistakenly assumed I had the same insecurities about my voice that they lived with and it got me thinking about all the times we have to endure unasked for critiques of our art. I don’t go around looking for people to tell them how bad I think their work is. It’s truly going out of my way to do that. If you don’t like something, I say keep it moving until you find something worth your time and comment…lol Anyway, I’m happy with this piece and the challenge it was to record performing it and I want to share.

On My Worst Days – voice/piano

This videos is a few months old and the song, several years old, but I wanted a better video performing it. Most of my song lyrics are reworked lines right out of my journals. Years back when I was still looking for work, my days were spent writing little songs like this at my piano to pass the time and help me keep my sanity for being alone so many hours.

31 years Today

I did not expect to see it through to 31 years marked today. This year has been impossible, but I’ve created art I am grateful to have finished and have even more works in progress to keep living for. Right now, 10 music albums is my goal. It’s been a month since I released #6 The Cruel Meanwhile. Please check it out if you need some background noise while working..lol / follow me on Bandcamp. I’m used to getting drowned out by the millions of others doing the same thing, but hey I’m still here, happy for the handful of souls who’ve not passed me by. Support in any sense doesn’t come my way easily. One day I hope to be worthy of it, but no matter what, my work won’t stop. https://allysonmarie.bandcamp.com/album/the-cruel-meanwhile
