rewriting patterns

I was originally going to release my EP next Friday. I found myself getting ready to just post it online the same I way I did with Wake Up Dreaming in 2012. Back then I could blame my frazzled, last-ditch effort on some major life changes I was going through, but this time I recognized a pattern: complete and total excitement during the creation process followed by complete and total dread at the thought of a release show. As embarrassing as it is, I realized that it kind of freaks me out to say “I will be making music in a room on this day at this time. Will you come?” I also realized that this EP release could be an opportunity to change that. So I decided to launch a pre-order on the 26th of this month and do the official release on the 23rd of September. Between now and then I’ll be focusing solely on creating a show that will feel magical. And then I’ll ask you if you want to come be a part of it. I kind of can’t wait to rewrite this pattern and see what’s next.
