Absolutely no need to be embarrassed, you’ve got serious presence.
I’m going to dig in to that soundcloud link, for sure. I can’t recall if I mentioned it or not (chaotic weekend, brain still going “wha…? it’s monday?!”), but I liked what I’ve heard already enough that I had to pick up my Takamine and started writing. I’m kind of inspired :p
My music is in my profile line. Just bedroom “studio” demos. I think there are two songs on there that have the “just me and acoustic guitar” versions as well. There’s even me with a ukulele on there (before you judge, I had never played one before :p ).
I’m extremely flattered that something I wrote had any impact, especially after reading your writing and being inspired by it. Thank you :)
