We are just getting back from The Melissa Etheridge Cruise and a short run in Florida! We had an absolute blast, made so many amazing friends, and created new music for future releases!
On November 12 (the day we embarked the seas), we released the FIRST single from our upcoming album! "Untamed" is one of our favorite tunes that we've created so far, and I wanted to share the writing and recording processes with you all...
In the summer of 2020, I was on vacation in North Carolina and was completely devastated by the events that had occurred only a few months earlier. A friend of mine recommended a book to me, authored by Glennon Doyle, called Untamed. The book was a first-hand account of how women are conditioned in their younger years, i.e. "tamed," to live, breathe, and act a certain way. As women grow older, they must reverse this process by experiencing life in their own way and learning to be themselves. This concept resonated with me immensely, and I had been working on the music to a new song, which was really just a groove at this point. With an impactful concept in mind, I wanted to create my own interpretation of this "untaming." The writing process occurred rather quickly, and by the end of the week, I was completely finished with my new song.
Upon my arrival home, I immediately created a home demo for the song and sent the demo to Will Turpin, who needed any and all song ideas to begin production on the upcoming HeyDreamer album. He loved the music and the concept, and before long, we began production on the first single for the album.
