Hey, thanks for stopping by, my name is Chris Cannady. I've been playing guitar for a while now, but I never wrote a song until a few years ago, and even that was really just meant for me so it was a while before anyone else ever heard it. That was all well and good, but my favorite aspect of music is that it can serve as a bridge of sorts, connecting individuals and allowing the exchange of ideas and feelings. Once I realized how magical it can be to have someone share a piece of his or herself with another via music, I decided that I wanted to be able to make a connection like that, to reach out to someone and share something, an emotion, a hint of a feeling.
Because I know that feelings and emotions can be communicated to some degree by sound, and that particular arrangements of sound and rhythm can affect us on a deeper level than others, I imagine each person as having unique song, a musical footprint you might say, which captures the essence of who that person is and even a bit of the general shape of their life, because of course the song is a lifetime long, developing and changing with the person, like a footprint. The goal of musicianship, at least my goal, is ultimately to come as close as I can to discovering that song, or at least pieces of how it might sound at any given time. It's about putting sound and rhythm together in a way that resonates with the soul like a tuning fork. That's what its all about.
I joined SoundCloud to share a bit of myself and the results of my journey as a musician with others and to observe the journeys of others, and maybe even to be able to share a little piece of my Song in the process.
