Whitewater Falls: A development of songwriting style and artistic identity
The purpose of this study aims to develop my own artistic identity using songwriting as a vessel. Over the course of this year, I took part in various classes, workshops and performances to enhance, strengthen and hone in both my technical and performative skills as a singer-songwriter. My background in musical theater and training in classical voice aided this development by setting a strong foundation for my transition into a composer. This collection of eight original songs follows the story of a young woman navigating her way through relationships as she attempts to “break the cycle”. To break the cycle means to choose not repeat the destructive, toxic, and abusive behaviors that we have observed through our role models. Further development of this project will include writing a libretto and workshopping it in various venues around New York City and beyond.
