What’s up Somori Pointer! Talk to us about how you discovered your unique artistry?
Being an open channel is a key factor in my creativity. I don’t force many things anymore, I use to try and choose which form of expression I would use my energy on. I truly believe as artists we carry a responsibility to express and interpret what the universe sends to our planet via radio waves. So, in short, I’m narrating the human experience in a way that’s only unique to us down here on Earth. But we’re all tied together with a common thread. With this song, in particular, I was fortunate enough to write and produce with Eric Lindsey, my ex-bandmate (The Skinny Guns).
“California Moonlight” is a very interesting record that we felt absolutely in love with. What was the main theme behind this song?
I would say that the theme of that record is based on a meditation of sorts. Trying to get my audience to stop..just stop. Let yourself enjoy the simple perfection that is life. Perfection isn’t perfect, in my eyes, the moon symbolizes the triumphant moment of living through another day here.
Were there any obstacles you may have encountered when creating this single? What section in this song did you feel best highlights the theme you were seeking?
As far as obstacles in writing C.A. Moonlight, there weren’t any. The lyrics came out in a couple of hours. I feel that every line in the song reflects the total theme of the song.
From your own artist perspective, how would you detail your creative process with “California Moonlight” in a short quick summary?
I tend to approach every song that I write the same, I wait for the story to come to me. I narrate the images that project in my mind the best I can. Most times the images have a universal plot or storyline, I have learned not to overthink what’s being shown to me. That, I believe is the best way for me to deliver an honest message.
As 2019 is coming to a close and we reflect on this past year. Is there any major lesson you’ve learned that you’re planning on carrying on with you into the upcoming year?
