Don't Be Surprised
In a lyric writing class I took at Berklee College of Music, the only rule for our final project was to search a random sheet of newspaper for a word or phrase that stood out to us as a potential hook, and then write a song inspired by it. The phrase that stood out to me was "don't be surprised," and this is the song that was born out of it. Thank you to my lyric writing professor, Susan Cattaneo, for showing me that inspiration comes in many forms. Thank you to Rahsaan Lacey for making the bass on this track 10 times more awesome than what we originally had. Thank you to Phillip Peloubet for taking this song in the direction it was begging to go in while still staying true to its core elements. And thank YOU for taking the time to listen! Hope you enjoy.
