I Believe In Love (Instrumental)
Musical Influences: Sisters Love, The Jackson Sisters
Musical Inspiration: In 2015, there was a particular sense of urgency to make and release this message to the world when brutal authoritarian forces that sought to divide people using the age-old tactics of lies, hate, fear, bigotry, racism, and misogyny sought to take and consolidate power without regard for the fellow inhabitants of planet earth.
Lyrical Inspiration: The lyrics are extremely elementary, Everything in this song is hanging from the words "I BELIEVE IN LOVE" with the first 'verse' being constructed almost entirely of a well-worn aphorism, and the second verse being a chance for me to state my position that this material world is actually an illusion, made manifest to us through our physical senses which are, themselves, made up of the very same illusory substance. But without being too heavy-handed about it, the words of the second verse leave a lot up to the interpretation of the listener.
Artist Statement: The song is a call to those who Believe in Love to shout it out, scream it out, sing it out, and then set that sentiment into action.
