I wrote this song last year for my upcoming EP. After listening to it on a recent walk, I felt like the music and lyrics really resonated with the current moment we find ourselves in, so I decided to release it early.
The musical movements in the intro tell a story of struggle, then acceptance and, eventually, an emergence from darkness. Ultimately, I feel that it’s an optimistic song that reminds us that, even when times are difficult, we can still find something beautiful if we look for it.
I hope everyone is staying safe and that you are able to experience/create some beautiful moments despite these challenging times.
Note: I’m currently releasing my music under the band name Lost Like You. You can find this song as well as future releases on Bandcamp:

This is my first proper classical composition. I stumbled across this chord progression while studying some different piano chords and was very moved by it. I found myself playing it over and over again. As a gentle rain storm set the mood outside, I spent several hours piecing the composition together into its finished form.
The piano part is composed of two separate parts that were combined together. It modulates back and forth between C Major and F Minor every two measures which creates an emotional kick.
I’m very proud this piece and find myself coming back to it again and again to help me relax and to put my mind in a good place. I hope it has the same effect for you too.
