I took lessons from Heidi for probably almost two years, it was super fun! She always challenged me to be better as singer, but also respected my limits. It was like pushing the boundaries while keeping me in my comfort zone. She had me do various vocal warm ups that challenged my breathing and my range, even singing styles of music I wouldn’t listen to by choice, it really opened my mind to how cool that other genre was.¬†I also never felt self conscious around her, she was very kind and accepting. A wonderful teacher ūüôā

Nobody Knows is about a few things actually, it is about the struggle to be accepted or accepting. It goes over some controversial topics, like religion, and how God has done great things and God has done bad things but it’s all for a reason. Some of the things talked about in the song have caused a lot of hate and strife in the world and I don’t really know why. But you should believe what gives you peace of mind, because nobody really knows whats in the after life, but if you’re happy you should believe whatever you want. ¬†Another thing is everyone is different and has different beliefs or a different way of life, and with that comes criticism and judgement. But at the end of it all, no one should judge you because of the things you like, or how you look, or act because nobody knows what you’ve been through. Nobody knows what has happened in your life to make you who you are today.

I hadn’t made a song in a while and I wanted to make something different from the music we hear today talking about drugs and sex and weapons, writing “Nobody Knows” was easy because it’s something I relate with strongly so the lyrics just came flowing out. And I do have other songs, I’m in the process of finishing my album right now.

After I wrote the song and finally released it, I didn’t think it was going to be super popular because of the topic and I thought people were gonna try to start beef with me because it mentions God, haha. But I was wrong, the song is now at over 1,000 views on SoundCloud and a lot of people have told me things like “Nobody Knows is my favorite song” or “I love your voice”, just really great feedback. It’s my most popular song and I’ve had two radio stations interested in playing it, it was really unexpected for me on how many people like the song.

Making the song was super fun, it was written in like 30 minutes. It was probably the easiest song I’ve ever written, and like I said earlier, I relate to it a lot. ¬†People sometimes write music about things they haven’t been through or things they don’t relate with, but this song was straight from my mind and soul and I live by every word of it.

It’s had such a big impact on my life, whenever I’m going through hard times and I listen to it, it reminds me to keep going.
