King Craig James & Lyvvi. I want to share a couple songs that I recorded with a girl named Lyvvi last year. The world may never hear these songs because her and I just couldn’t see eye to eye on a few things. I think it’s really a shame. From time to time, I go back and listen to them and I feel like there’s nothing I can really do about it at this point. Except.. Well.. Write about it. Yeah, I have thought about reaching out to her.. but it was just a thought.
I found Lyvvi on YOUTUBE and (needless to say) we ended up meeting in person and recording these two songs. I had originally intended on putting them on my next album, but I think she had her own vision for them. I removed my plans to promote her as an artist, but I still think the world should hear what she’s capable of. These songs have helped me get through a lot. I think what’s more important, is that they can help YOU through a lot. So have a listen.
I just want to say that this was my first time recording with somebody who probably has more talent than me. Lyvvi wrote these songs, the originals can be found on YOUTUBE if you click those links. I came along and added to them. I added a verse, and I helped with the production, and did some back up vocals. She would say they are her songs, but I look at them as our songs. I think that’s where things got a little complicated and I decided to just cancel my plans to include them from the album. Unfortunately, I lost a friend, and future girlfriend over it as well.
The problem with all that, is that I have two really good songs that I think the world really needs to hear. They are inspiring. I was so upset about it, that I cut off communication with her completely. I don’t think she deserved the way I treated her, but she certainly deserves credit where credit is due.
So I just wanted to show the world what happens when two people, with incredible talent step into the King Craig James studio and make magic happen. I hope you like it. Lyvvi, if you’re out there reading this. I am really glad we met, and I am so glad we were able to do these songs. I hope someday we can re-unite again. My door is open to you. I miss you. Until then, I hope you are still making music. You are amazing. More importantly. We are amazing. Enjoy everyone.
