I have been intrigued with the poetic power of “words” ever since I can remember. Their Symbolism, metaphor, and the meaningful transformations that can occur when combined with the sounds and shapes of language in unexpected ways. Poetry shaped into lyrics help to provide an ability to communicate, to musically describe, and to express something that cannot easily be accessed. Within the blend of melody, harmony and words something from a deeper part of our psyche emerges.
Primitive is a very challenging song. It commands full concentration on perfect pitch with an intentional demonstration of tone. As a singer I strive for challenge. It has never been enough or fulfilling for me to simply sing something unless it somehow changes or enhances my technique and approach.
