Introducing, GMackBey ....From Around Tha; Way
Tell us about yourself and your music
I write songs about my own experiences, especially about love or disappointment. I also like to write to conceptualize what most people don’t want to talk about. Most of us have been through some life-shattering, or life-changing situations we would never tell anyone else about, but I like to open up and learn about mine. Then, write about it to grow from that experience. So yes, everything you hear in my music is personal, its real pain, joy, and happiness. But, I’m just getting started! As an artist, I want to say more and I will.
My process is, I think of the idea. I first write a song in my head. Before I sit down to an instrument, I know there is a particular sound I want to capture. Once I have that sound in my head I then create the music in that sound. Then come the lyrics and arrangement of the verses concerning the original idea. Walla, the song! It may sound easy, but it is not. Sometimes, it may take a whole year to write one song in my head, but I stick to the process. Because, if it doesn’t sound right, I’m not motivated to write. It is a creative process for me and it allows me to deliver great music to my fans who identify with my music and experiences.
