Episode 9: Jami Lula – “God, Praying, & Being On Call”

By @ 06/03/13 in Episodes, Series One

Hey Guys!

Welcome to Episode 9!

I have to admit that I have been putting off this episode a bit. I have wanted to get this particular songwriter on the show since I started the show almost a year ago. I respect him immensely not only as a singer/songwriter and musician but as a person. He is one of the most wonderful people that I have ever met and I truly feel blessed to call him a friend.

I can safely say that he is the one that truly inspired me to do this thing we call songwriting – specifically Positive Music. I saw him perform three years ago and I instantly was drawn to his music, his vocals, and his authenticity.

Really – you ask anyone that knows of him or knows him and you will hear the same thing – Amazing person. AMAZING MUSIC.

He is non-other than the amazing Jami Lula.

I have to add a bit of a disclaimer here and tell you that this is the longest episode to date. Clocking in at almost two hours. It really is worth it! I had Jami over to my home and we chatted about everything – maybe not everything but it really felt like it. From Songwriting to God to Praying and how they are all related. We got a chance to talk about a couple of his songs too! Be prepared to hear some really great stuff.

I even got to ask a listener question—

QUESTION FROM KELLY CORSINO:

Where were you at physically and emotionally when you wrote “Something’s Calling Me” ? Was it a, “hey I’m gonna sit down and write moment? Or was it a holy moly grab a pen quick here it comes moment?”

My favorite piece of advice? It’s more of a question that I would think he charges us to ask ourselves as songwriters—how open am I? Am I open to letting this song to come through. We are on call. Our job is a 24/7 – 365 kind of job. Our shift never ends.

Puts a lot of things into perspective. In fact, if you really think about it and get down to it – it takes a little bit of the weight off the entire creative process. Get out of the way and let it sing through you.

As always, I truly love recording these episodes because every time I do, I learn something new. It’s more for me than it is for you.

Ha! Sorry!
