Love Fighter- the demo sessions 

OK - here we go; finally, the demo sessions have begun. Life for me has finally taken a positive turn toward stability (lol), giving me the space to get things done. I laugh because "stability" for a broke-ass independent musician like myself would probably make most non-creative people winch. But for me, I don't need much - but I do need to feel safe at home and a good part of my life; that just hasn't been the case. So the struggles I face aren't just creative; they are fundamental. But that's also why making music brings me so much joy - but there is no freedom without struggle.  

First up - Love Fighter. Here is the raw version.

The Loving Feeling 

First up on CrushedVelvet's The Demo Sessions is a sweet little tune called Love Fighter. Not a proper raw demo, as I have worked it out before, but more of a song reconstruction that lives somewhere between a ballad and dance track. This song is one of those that flew into my head fully formed from a lyrical perspective though I struggle still with the arrangement.   

Love Fighter is a song about ultimate denial and final seduction, telling that one crush, run all you want, but I'm running just as fast. 

Like many of my "love" songs, this wasn't autobiographical when I wrote it. It was more of a vibe than an event, but art has a funny way of reflecting life because every time I sing this song these days, it's most definitely personal now, lol. 

I will be experimenting with how I present the songs, from their raw acoustic renditions to the final demo. However, if you subscribe to my Patreon page, you'll be the first to hear it and get a free download of the finished product. So don't fight the feeling. Spread the love. And see you this weekend for the first installment of The Demo Sessions.
