I feel deeply grateful to have collaborated with my friend musician/producer Starita on a new song that has just been released called “The Search.” Starita reached out this past summer, in the depths of the pandemic, and shared that a whole body of music had come through during quarantine, resulting in his upcoming album The Wake Up Call. His invitation to collaborate and sing on one of the songs “The Search,” couldn’t have come at a better time. It was such a challenging time, as for so many of us, and when I heard the captivating soundscape he had created, I was so hungry to sing on it. When I sent Starita my vocal ideas, it was exciting because he got inspired to turn the song in a new direction based on the vocal tracks, and to create a whole other passage in the song that deepened the journey, even radically changing the key of the song at a pivotal point. This is one of the great joys of musical collaboration: we inspired each other and brought something out that wouldn’t have arisen otherwise.
If you’d like to hear more about the origins of this song, watch a short video on Instagram TV with an interview with both of us.
