Songwriting: Writing "The Spirit Indestructible"
"How was the creative process different for Spirit Indestructible, prior to these past projects?"
The Creative Process Behind Writing "The Spirit Indestructible"
Spirit Indestructible was an interesting creative process. I kind of took my time. I finished my Spanish album and my tour and, you know, that album won a latin grammy and that was really thrilling. After that I had already starting recording some tracks in English and I just continued. Spirit Indestructible is a best of, twelve of the best songs from forty tracks that I recorded. It's a brand new album, brand new material.
It was just a lot of fun, I felt very spirited and full of adrenaline in most of these sessions, especially near the end. I recorded a bulk of the tracks with Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins and we were on a really high vibration.
