Sa Re Ga Ma Pa (Acoustic)

At the moment, I'm so inspired by this quote from the movie "A Star is Born": "There are only 12 notes between any octave, and then the octave repeats. All any artist can offer this world is how they see those 12 notes. That's it." I absolutely love writing on my acoustic guitar. It's when I feel the most connected to my music. As I continue to work my album, I'm releasing this unplugged raw version of Sa Re Ga Ma Pa. It's so raw that if you listen closely you can hear the room and my metronome clicking away :) from when I first finished recording the song in my living room. For audio nerds (like me) wondering which microphone I'm using, this one is the AKG C414.

Special thanks to Denise Militzer and Quaison Nangle (Sauce Creative) for helping me shoot this video!

More songs coming soon,
