We all have stories...
The painful stories are the ones that lay heaviest on our souls...
My thought is that personal evolution helps to address the emotional weight imposed upon us...
I struggled with if I should write this post because I desire this blog to be mostly positive. But often the truest art is produced by significant pain. So I write this piece in expression of appreciation of a young artist who is not afraid to show his scars.
When I’m inspired to marry pen to paper or fingers to keys, I know that a song or a piece of music is a gift which unlocks the artist within. My introduction to NF was while listening to one of my favorite singer-songwriters James Arthur on my Pandora station. A song came on that conveyed such a tangible, honest melancholy. A raw voice filled with tears and anguish. His voice sounded oddly familiar but the emotion behind the music was dissimilar.
Left with curiosity my first question,...“Was this real?” As the end of the song neared I felt this raw emotion burn in my chest. The curtain had risen and all I was left with was, “who is NF?”
In my attempt to reach out silence echoed with perseverance. So the question will remain. But what I know is I can go hours listening to the same songs over and again. So NF has made a mark on this artist soul.
