Hello Jill!! :) I JUST discovered your hauntingly beautiful music and I am a fellow pianist (lessons for 12years) haha and I'm a singer and I LOVE your style of music it's exactly the kind of music I want to create myself. I was wondering how did you first start composing your OWN music what is that process like for you? I've never tried writing my own music before. Thank you SO MUCH for constantly inspiring me with your BEAUTIFUL music and your beautiful soul. All my love, Andrew xoxoxoxo
Welcome to the netherworld, so glad you are here...
I abide by the fact that the finished music already dwells inside me. My job is to find the portal— the conduit to allow it to manifest in this world. It’s a process of living to honor the magic, being alive in that place, allowing the flame. Finding those trapdoors, prying up the floorboards…
There's a fantastic in-depth article from 2008 when I talk at length about my creative process and background with Culture Flux Magazine. One of my favorite interviews. I think it will resonate with you! Here's a link. http://culturefluxmagazine.com/index.php...
You'll find more interviews if you scroll down on my PRESS page. http://jilltracy.com/jt/press/
Honored to inspire you. Keep creating! xox
How do I Love Thee... I can not count the ways. DAG ;)JILL TRACY responded on 12/12/2013 Next question
I am a Tori Amos fan and I cannot understand why women are always compared to one another. Strange. You are in a class of your own. You share the gift of being a brilliant performance musician /intelligent songwriter that I wish I'd heard of sooner. I look forward to listening to your music while I paint or sleep (when I can). Its so exciting to discover something wonderful in Music.
So, here is a common question, where did you learn to play the piano and do you have a preferred brand you like to play? Will you ever release some of your past albums/Cds that are out of print. The World needs to know about your music.
