How can a bootleg live song or something through together in a bedroom feel more high quality compared to a polished studio song?
Because it’s not really about quality or place, it’s about authenticity.
Authenticity is a word that gets thrown around a lot, but it essentially means being true to yourself and letting who you are and your story speaks from a real place within.
Of course, we can be authentically terrible at our craft. Being an authentically bad artist doesn’t really bring home the turkey bacon.
And trying to capture authentic works for authenticity’s sake defeats the purpose of being authentic.
But when authentic work is paired with exceptional quality, magic happens.
STAY BOLD, Keep Pursuing,
