We got hipped up to this positive, soulful joint by Destani Wolf and Miguel Atwood-Ferguson yesterday and got some words with the titular songstress before dropping it today.
As moms we want nothing but the best for our children and even though I had a supportive community I had my own doubts of how being a mom and a musician would work. What encouraged me was witnessing moms who were doing it all. I believe that we do a disservice to ourselves and our children if we bury our passions and don’t pursue our dreams. I don’t want to lose myself. I want to flourish and succeed and have my children have an example of a parent, a person, that is making the effort to live to her fullest potential. All the while loving and fulfilling the needs of my child.
I’m not going to say it’s been easy, sleep has definitely been sacrificed, but it is possible. I had to balance my priorities and my time, our time. When I had my children they weren’t my burden but my inspiration. In order to fulfill my dream and keep doing what I do, I had to incorporate what I do into my life, my new life with my new family. I wrote songs on the fly about eating, about the car ride to rehearsal and wrote songs about my hopes for them, when they slept deep on the beach with my guitar in my hands. This song I wrote, recorded and produced reminds me of the strength as a Mother who works towards Nothing but the Best for herself and works towards Nothing but the best for her child.
The song and video are definitely reflective and evocative of the feelings described here and go a long way towards showing the amount of soul that blesses Wolf’s vocals. Getting the co-sign by the likes of Miguel Atwood-Ferguson only helps to drive home the point that she’s a talent to watch out for.
