Dear Jill I'm going through a break up and I just want to personally thank you for creating such beautiful music for me to escape into my own elegant netherworld I adore you and your music it takes me to another place of mysterious wonder. My question to you is (if you don't mind sharing) how do you yourself overcome the overwhelming emotions of a break up and how to eventual move forward? It would just be very up lifting to see your advice and wise words in this less than happy moment in my life. I love you jill tracy thank you for creating such lush dark haunting BEAUTIFUL music. All my love, Andrew xoxo
Andrew, I'm glad I can be there for you...I write my music for the same reason. It is my catharsis, an escape to another place. And If I can enable YOU to be transported there as well, that's the biggest compliment I could ever receive. I strive to be this gatekeeper of emotions.
Pain and sadness are great reminders that we are alive. The very thing that makes us a human soul.
So relax, allow yourself the TIME to be melancholy— you must "honor" it in a strange way...as the very feeling of sadness or disappointment means you experienced something that really MATTERED to you. You experienced something that was WORTH getting sad about! Some people never achieve that, they are too busy going through life being numb, cynical and indifferent. (That's much sadder to me.)
I love the old French term la douleur exquise "the exquisite pain." Finding the beauty within the pain of wanting something that you know you can never have. That's where the great songs come from. xox
Howdy, I LOVE indie music/musicians - they keep it real no matter the style they play. I'm always We are always willing to help out a couple of our local bands here. Check them out as "Girl in a Coma" on YouTube they spilt for awhile. Nina Diaz solo -I have to give her a copy of your CD this music is right up her alley. and the other band members, punk band FEA ("ugly" in spanish). Recently Toni Child "gave birth" to her project- took two years to get it done fully funded by fans. She taught me patience, faith and that the creative process is long and painful. It cannot be rushed...It is beautiful music. So, yes, I will buy Jill Tracy music CDs when I can and past them on. Your music is too beautiful not to be known . Finally comment, If you are on a budget would you buy acoustic or electric piano. I love acoustic but they require financial TLC. Thanks for your existence...Peace Black Feather.JILL TRACY responded on 05/06/2014 Next question
