A few days ago, there was an event at the farm that ended in a group of us around a bonfire at night, and me singing a couple of songs with my guitar.
After hearing me sing, one of the people there — Kelly, a sweet woman with amazingly positive vibes — ended up giving me the nickname (or stage name) Freedom.
Wow. I just felt something so strong resonate within me when she said that. Freedom is, after all, what enables me to share my music, as well as what I want it to evoke in others — particularly the freedom of feeling and expressing.
It’s also what has been dictating my life in general these days.
I never thought about actually taking on a stage name. On one hand, there is something so — no pun intended — freeing about it!
On the other hand, would you rather keep your real name to represent your art?
Hm, I’m undecided. What say you?
