What Holds You Back?

There are too many gurus lecturing us about life – telling us what to do to reach our lifelong potential. But I’ll have my say.’

‘My message is simple -TAKE THE TIME. Even when you have a family or major responsibilities , you still should know who you are and what you really want. Sure there will be some compromises, but at some point you need to practice ‘your thing’ – the thing that will make you feel whole. Don’t be consumed by having to be the best because there’s generally someone better. It actually the package you bring.’

‘I watch many people living someone else’s dream, not their own. That’s probably because they’ve never really honestly thought about what they want. That’s the sad reality. Many people just really don’t know who they are and what they want. At some point in their life they might find themselves alone and far more lost that they should be. But it’s never too late to find it. It’s not selfish, it’s critical.’

‘I always wanted to write songs. I don’t have any delusions about being the greatest. I do know I want to share my music. I don’t want to keep it to myself. That’s just the truth.’

Composing ‘Lonely View’ reminded me of my true love.

Steve Bell will tell you that he is a guy who remembered he could write songs twenty years after the last one he wrote. But really, he is a very competent songwriter/arranger. Running a professional services company can be very demanding, but then came COVID and Melbourne, Australia got locked down for over 100 days. In between running zoom meetings with his team, trying to understand government guidelines and welcoming his third child into the world, Steve wrote some songs starting with Lonely View and Another Point of View, one a meditative ballad and about being locked away whilst looking out over a beautiful bay and the other a ‘really funky something’. He is aiming for one song a month and insists they will be a mixture of seventies, eighties and nineties type of genres. (He murmurs something about Bee Gees, Lauryn Hill, Steely Dan, EW&F and David Foster being an influence) So here are some songs folks.❤️
