Throwback Blog Series: Please

I recently stumbled across old blog post from 2007 – 2010. They show how our past is often more similar to our present than we thought it would be. So I’ve created the “Throwback Blog Series” to unearth these ideas and stories. Hope you enjoy the journey back through time over the coming month.

Dancing, Singing and Letting Go


Over three years ago I sat down at my parents’ piano to write a song. I played a few minor chords and sang the first words that came to mind.

I keep writing songs about you

You’re the first thing that comes to mind when I think of me

I’m starting to see the hold

The hold you don’t even know you have on me

The emotions from one moment in time; forever imprinted on my mind. That is why I love being a songwriter. I have moved past that moment—those emotions—but the words still have something to teach me about living life.

I named that song Please, and recently, I filmed a music video for it.Please watch and enjoy.
