Behind the Song: Navigator, Aviator – SNEAK PEAK

I’ve been having a great time working on a new song called “Navigator, Aviator.”  Here’s what it sounds like so far:

I’ve had a hankering to write a song about asking someone to be “my Navigator” for probably eight years now.  It’s been one of those ideas that hangs around, floats in and out of my thoughts…I never could fully flesh out till now.

As a musician trying to navigate herself through this tangled music industry, it’s easy to see where the desire for some navigation comes from.  In times past, I’ve certainly wished for someone to just DISCOVER ME, to go “POOF you’re famous!”  But I’ve realized (through these eight years) that I need direction, not someone to do it for me.

Jonny and Me picWARNING: I am a total Cheezeball, but here I go: I’ve found my Navigator, my wonderful fiancé and manger, Jonathan.  He lets me fly the plane, of course, but together as Navigator and Aviator, we get the aircraft off the ground and on to new places.

Yep, I think that’s why this song is finally forming for me.  Well, I’ll keep working on it.  Hope you enjoy the ‘lil preview!

P.S. – Do you have a Navigator in your life?  Who is it and what do they do for you?
