I’ve recently taken up the challenge of mastering my work as an explicit, separate step from the recording / mixing process. To cut my teeth, I’ve decided to take up a few of my older songs and revisit them from a mastering and, in some instances, even a remixing perspective. This is one such song.
Originally recorded in 2013, this song gives a glimpse into the mind of a woman who is best friends with the man that’s she’s been in love with all of her life. And yet, as his friend, he looks right through her as he searches for his partner in life. In her heart, she pleads with him to recognize her for what she really wants to be, and that’s his woman and soulmate.
