I’m about to do something I’ve never done before: I’m going to post one of my songs.
I suppose I should take a moment and introduce myself. My name is Becky Campbell, and I’m a closet songwriter and musician. (Translation: I have social and performance anxieties. Not counting piano recitals or high school orchestra engagements, I have a grand total of (drum roll, please) two public performances under my belt…at open mic nights.) Anyhoo…
I wrote “No Way To Be” during the summer of 2010, and I had the chance to produce it for a term project during my final semester of Music Industry Arts at Fanshawe College in early 2011. Shout out to my MIA mates who lent their talents and time: Caitlin Clarke (engineering, vocal coaching, and all-around provider of encouragement), Serin Hong (engineering and hug-giving), and Justin Shorey (drums).
I had a lot of fun producing this song, although I will admit to many ‘I’m going to stab myself in the eye’ moments of frustration during the mixing process. It could use a few tweaks here and there, but I’ll spare you the details and instead invite you to take a listen (play below).
