Hoping Simpler Will Be Better

I’ve been struggling with completing songs for a long time. I notice that often the moment I start losing my way, is when things get more complicated than I initially wanted them to be. I begin with a clear, simple idea and suddenly hear another potential arrangement, larger than my first acoustic take, and I decide to go for it… and then get lost in the multiple guitars, and strings, and piano, and this, and that. I love production and layering… but it’s becoming an obstacle. I need to find a way to get back to just the song. Just capture the song, Malukah. Any way you can.

    I find myself with the same issue. Although am not nearly the accomplished artist you are in my genre (writing, drawing), it is often a problem in my everyday life as well. Nice Mac by the way, I have the same one! Here’s a hint, be like the Mac. Simple, like it’s one port!!
