“All good music resembles something. Good music stirs by its mysterious resemblance to the objects and feelings which motivated it. “ – Jean Cocteau
We’d finished recording the song and I was looking for a title. Naming songs is almost as hard as naming babies because babies can become adults change their names but songs can’t.
I thought about all the feelings that inspired this song. It was the first song we would ever record without alcohol on the table and writing materials in my hands. @Tintinandtins had been trying to find me a beat to write to and he’d just played me this really soulful, yet playful project that wasn’t quite done yet.
“Let me see how this feels!” I’d said to him and I’d thrown my shirtless self into the booth and poured my heart out. The song was how I felt then about the pressures of growing up, and creating my own identity as a person despite the expectations of the ones that love me. I just didn’t know it yet.
But the more I thought about it, the clearer it became. Excitedly, I said to Tin tin, “The Art Of Escape!”
