1961

1961

I wrote this song for my grandpa (who died 14 years ago) and grandma’s 59th anniversary.

Journey Through the Universe

Journey Through the Universe

My song is a story about 2 lovers who seek an escape/refuge in space among the stars to leave behind earth since everyone relates to each other only through loneliness. So they want to explore the universe and not have a sad life.

Getting By

Getting By

This song is about a family that has to come together to overcome the struggles of corona virus, like being laid off and having their community struggle to get by. This song was recorded in my basement with my computer and the midi keyboard that I bought. All of the instruments (bass, drums, piano) were recorded on the midi keyboard. This is the second song that I’ve recorded by myself and I’m really proud of the way it turned out! thanks for listening in, and all the best!

Supermarket Runs

Supermarket Runs

This song is about my connections with my friends and the supermarket which may seem odd, but it’s a constant memorable activity that connects me with my friends. I wrote, produced (using garage band on my ipad), and drew the art for this song and supermarket runs are often seen as something not really important or interesting, but being out with my friends in any way even if it’s a late night run to the market, it keeps me connected with the ones I love to be surrounded by. I always enjoy going shopping for snacks and sweets with my friends and it’s something that we always have fun with, and connects us in a different way that people normally wouldn’t expect.

Family History

Family History

I wrote this song inspired by the theme of connections to me, and revolved it around the idea of a family tree.

All composition (lyrics and melody), recording (vocals and instruments), and production (production, mixing, and mastering) were done solely by me, Vanessa Wang.

Remember yesterday

Remember yesterday

This song relates to things and people that we have had and lost and wishing we could have or see again.
This is actually about my Nan, who sadly passed away very quickly and I wrote it for my mum and it helped me to grieve too. I found it hard to show my emotions and this song helped that.
This was written about 10 months ago and I haven’t recorded it since this first time. I had only just learnt how to ply guitar too and if I recorded it again I think it would sound better but I wanted to show you the first version

Who I Am

Who I Am

Life’s challenges and trials may knock us down but thankfully, our Father in Heaven did not leave us to live life on our own. This song is about how our connection and relationship with our family, ancestors and to God can help us get up on our feet, do our best, endure to the end, and remember who we truly are.

Unconditional Love

Unconditional Love

This is my first song i wrote and record, i want to tell the world that God love Us

Heal Me

Heal Me

“Heal Me,” was written in honor of my good friend, Eric, who was killed in a car accident during our sixth-grade year. Having been really young when it all happened, much of my memory is fogged over, leaving me with very few vivid memories. One of the things that is so clear in my mind STILL, is learning of the “bad news.” My heart was broken to lose a friend like Eric. I hadn’t really considered the possibility that my sweet friend could actually die. In my heart I just knew that he was going to be okay. Remembering is eventually what brought this whole song together. I memorized a poem that Eric’s uncle wrote for his funeral. This is my favorite part: “We may forget how he walked; we may forget how he talked, but we will never forget how he loved with a pure heart and arms wide open.” In the second verse I reflect on “how he loved with a pure heart and arms wide open.” Remembering his goodness and our friendship eventually helped me understand and get through so much of the pain I went through. Though he’s gone his light remains, BUT it seems the hurt will last forever… can’t make these feelings go away. Even as an 11 year old kid I knew that Eric believed in Jesus Christ and that He was the source of Eric’s goodness – and my faith through this loss that Eric was ok and that I would heal. I have grown older and come across new challenges. I am finding that remembering the good, will remind me of Christ’s interest and attention to my story personally. As the song evolves, the “He” becomes Christ. HE is the ONLY way to find healing; “He only one.”
