My daughter's first ever song, titled 'Confined' got published on Spotify/YouTube and few other websites.

 

She did the complete work by herself, including lyrics, music, singing, guitar and Piano.

 

Would like to request all of you to please support her by listening/subscribing to the song and forwarding it to people who might be interested. Your support will go a long way for the 17 year old.

 

 

Here are the Spotify and Youtube links.

Lyrics:

 

Confined to this space until they arise,

Patiently waiting for the big surprise.

Eyes locked up and arms put to rest,

Each night presents the hardest test.

 

A few hours in and I’m already up,

Trying to cover the eternal buildup.

Standing up on my own,

I couldn’t do it, I should have known.

Maybe another day when it all clears,

It ain’t me facing all my fears.

 

Blinds make way for the long awaited rays,

The floor lights up with the shiniest layer of glaze.

Despite this heavenly victory,

The hours present a mere mystery.

 

Gasping for breath among silent cries,

Soon gotta pay for all my highs.

Standing up on my own,

I couldn’t do it, I should have known.

Maybe another day when it all clears,

It ain’t me facing all my fears.

 

The end of the tunnel shines a light,

Silence creeps in at the dead of night.

You can never find the truth,

‘Till you draw the blinds.

You can never save your youth,

Living life buried in lies.

 

A few hours in and I’m already up,

Trying to cover the eternal buildup.

Standing up on my own,

I couldn’t do it, I should have known.

Confined in f minor.

 

Very nice vocal melody on top of a simple V7-i harmony with a brief IV-i and then a V7-i cadence.

There are better musicians, on here, who can correct my quick harmonic analysis.

Is she planning on becoming a music major?

It will certainly give direction to a young life.

Thanks Mattee and DooDiligence for the kind works.

 

Yes, she wants to pursue a music career. And has already started working on a full album.

 

Her guitar chords from the notes she had was

 

(capo 1) (B7, Em, B7, Em)

 

In the bridge portion toward the end, it is (D, Em).

 

I guess with capo 1, it increments one note.

 

That's all I know about music notes  :D

I enjoyed listening to the song and her voice definitely has soul. I subscribed to her as well so I can keep track of her progress.

 

I found many times that unknown songwriters in coffee houses etc perform beautiful songs gems that would probably be very popular when a well known branded musician would performed them.

Thank you all for the inspiring words.

 

Thanks SD for the blockchain reference. Looked into it. The collapse of choon.co makes me thing it is a bit early for it. May be in a year of two.

At this point, it's really more an alternative comparative vs the amazon/spotify deals for streaming.

Use it to monetize, control distribution, and complement the video on her own website. Market to prove concept, then talk to the bigger players & get a better deal. This will become the music machinery of her generation, and the more experienced she becomes at it .... the better the end result will be. Artist as both creative and manager of her IP.
