Me: “Okay…What does that “internet logo” look like?

@owlcity My Musical Journey

lynzmusic:

Hey Adam, My name is Lyndsay Munich and I am 15 years old from Buffalo New York. I just wanted to get a few things off my chest. A few things.

Q: Who am I and why should you care?

A: That is about to be revealed and it’s all up to your discretion.

My musical background:

First of all,

There’s no musical background in my family except having the radio playing in the background growing up. It’s an outlet source for them but nobody plays an instrument in my immediate family or my extended in fact. Well, maybe one cousin in Tennessee. Or this cousin that I’ve never met but apparently had the guts to leave Minnesota. (which I didn’t know I had family in Minnesota…)

 I believe in all music. My iPod has over 2,000 songs off all genres ranging from the Top 20 to heavy trap and R&B to metal. Music is an emotion and emotions are expressed through emotions. I listen to music as I feel.

"What’s your favorite band?"

"I love all music, as long as it’s good" - Max Martin

Onward!

I’ve been playing violin in school since the 4th grade and now I am in the advanced string ensemble at my school now which is pretty cool. (I tried chorus back then too but dropped that)

image

The violin is estimated to be made in the 1920s and made by Rudolf Prosek in Czechoslovakia for the Wurlitzer Company, NY. The violin is owned by the bassist David Frost who you met with me back in the November of 2011 at the House Of Blues in Cleveland along with his wife Pattyimage

image

Remember that blink 182 bracelet I gave you? lol.image

Anywaysssss….

(My own violin is down below)

image

I really cannot to this day figure out why I woke up one day in 7th grade with the will to learn bass. I didn’t gush over it, or know any bassists?? (I STILL do not know why, even a few seconds after writing it the first time)

But it is how I met David. Maybe the answer is that things just happen for a reason.

image

Around this time I started really getting into your music (circa 2010). Just like everybody has that music that they always have to sing along to, yours was it for me. But for me that wasn’t enough, I had to play it too. At this time, I was taking bass lessons, whilst my brother Adam started acoustic guitar lessons. At night I’d sneak into his room and fiddle with the guitar. The tables have turned.

image

I remember trying to learn Brielle as one of the first things I experimented with. Thanks to the amazing http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/, I learned Alligator Sky as my first full song. I ended up playing it at the multi-performance show that I thought about doing months beforehand and decided against it because I had no showcase-able talents….

And it was the next day. 

image

Pulled it off.

A month after David took me to meet you for my birthday, for Christmas the beloved man surprised me with this. I am still so grateful for it. And for him of course.

image

Later, I started writing songs and I think my friends liked them.

image

Fast forward a year of playing various shows and improving on guitar skills, I was at a crossroads. Since knowing how you make your own music at home, I wanted to too of course! But David insisted that I try out a studio..

image

Ultimately I saw no room for creativity in doing so overly crowded feeling by another person having complete control over your sound. I felt very uncomfortable and indicating from my face it was just plain out nerve wracking. I like doing and creating things myself, and from this point on I started fantasizing over doing so.

image

(Now: Which ultimately brought me to now the comfort of my own home.)

image

My mom enjoys walking in on “the mess”. Someone please figure out a way for chords NOT to look messy. (THIS IS NOT MY NORMAL RECORDING SITUATION I PROMISE) Just posed for a photo.. of my cat. 

image

At the time I was in an educational rock band at my school. So cool. I had the privilege of playing at the Hard Rock Cafe twice

image

and also picked up electric guitar.

 image 

(yes it’s the same color exactly as my violin and I have no idea how that happened since I won the guitar)

In August of 2013, I recorded a 5 song EP very, very amateurly (honestly with a dumpy PC, Mixcraft, and a SM57 with no recording technique in place) Best of all, an XLR to USB Cable! …

image

to sell at an upcoming gig I had at the county fair. I also sold them to everybody in my community and also tried to get it to you at the show in Buffalo. thank god that didn’t happen.. David and I bought fresh CDs, handmade designed, printed and pressed all of the labels and sold them! With this money I was actually able to buy a Mac with the help of my father.

(the picture’s a link to it) if you dare…

In the mean time I applied to Grammy Camp with this video but

image

I have already come so far since last August recording Dusk At Dawn to now and I am actually looking back on how far I’ve come instead of assuming I completely suck at everything and I actually feel proud and accomplished! 

image

Fast forward to now, I am remain steadfast in my path to take over the world, oops, uh, I mean, to learn more and more everyday!!! Very recently I have signed up for three 6 week courses online from my dream college for the summer!  (instead of being a regular 15 year old girl in most of my generation)

image

I have begun vocal lessons, started experiment in different tunings with my guitar (tried guitar lessons for like a couple weeks, meh), started editing videos and I started doing concert and CD reviews (and maybe conducting interviews soon) for BackstageAxxess.com, I am exploring the piano world as well;

 image

with the lovely help of the internet and also watched all of these to improve my producing imageandimage

which really, really helps. 

image

All in all, you were simply just the key that opened the lock for me into the world of music in every aspect. It’s always been inside of me, in fact I can recall scenarios of where I heard and sang songs as far back as kindergarten. (which really isn’t that significant but w.e.) This post was only supposed to be this conclusion portion that I am writing but I might as well have introduced myself instead of sounding like a cliché “You Inspire Me” post. I also wanted to make it clear that I am not a fangirl like in the eye of the outsider. 

image

Of course I admire you, but as mentioned before, it’s in the musicality way (which is very hard to explain the significance to outsiders who just assume it’s just a phase,) that surpasses by all means. Therefore I have just resorted to being beyond thrilled if you favorite a tweet of mine and other various common outlets of admiration. But the reality is, I can never thank you enough for just, being a real person. For being so down to earth when from the outside it looks like your head’s up in the sky. (Honestly after I met you back in 2011, even all of the workers there commented on how humble and down to earth you were. (Character on point.) For really proving to me that I can do what I love without changing myself for the media and society and most of all, be myself.

image

(As I grow older these messages plastered around my house become alive and start to make more sense.)

Thank you Adam Young, for being the best person you can be, you.

image

And this is just me. Multiply this (deal with the math for a second) by all of the supporters out there whose lives you have touched.

This is just me.

And hey,

If you’re ever interested into looking at my progress in life, I’m just a click-a-way.

See you soon.
