I just posted a recording of a very old song of mine, "Facing East." I wrote it in 2007 or 2008. It might have been written April 15, 2008. It was recorded in either 2007 or 2008. There are other recordings from 2008.
I was very inspired by and listening to a lot of Tori Amos at the time. Who really inspired me to take up songwriting. I started writing "poems" or "lyrics" first, at a time in my life when I was very sad, and her music helped me. I have a tendency to be sad a lot, and at this time I think I really needed writing lyrics and poetry to help me deal with my emotions and experiences.
I think this is the first song I wrote and recorded, complete with music.
It's a piano song. I hope to one day get back to writing more again at the piano.
