A PASSION CANNOT BE PUT TO SLEEP

Milan, Sep 17th 2013

PASSION

If there is one thing that I hate is unclear situations.

And the situation was very unclear. Basically, the label just didn’t know how to promote my project and stopped working on it. Money was the biggest issue, but I was never told all of the reason why the project didn’t go on. I just know that I was dropped from the label. 

I didn’t know what to do. At this point I was: desperate, without a job and without money. What were my options? The disappointment and the delusion were so big that I was wondering to take some time off from music.

One other thing I hate is doing nothing. I might be a little hyperactive but I just cannot sit and do nothing!

So I started looking for a job : I was lucky enough to get hired from one advertising agency in Milan… as an intern. I learned a lot and worked long hours at the agency, but being super busy in a office didn’t prevent me from hearing, seeing and dreaming sounds.

I learned that a passion cannot be put to sleep. As hard as you can try, she will never sleep. Passion can take at least a 30-minute naps, the kind of nap that totally reinvigorates you. There is no Xanax, Valium or other sleeping pills that can calm down a passion. It’s very simple: if you try to make your passion rest, she will come back stronger than ever.

That’s what happened to me.

So now I am an account by day and a musician by night. During the day I deal with social media campaigns and events, while at night I spend hours with Logic, working on my writing skills and trying to find new and inspiring sounds.

But am I really happy?
