Behind the music

About Stick and Move by Carla the Poet

When making the music I love, I tend to keep my head down, and the volume up as music keeps me going. Music has played a significant role in my life, being my primary form of therapy. I was very insecure, introverted, and struggled with social anxiety as a kid. I still, to this day, enjoy my alone time much more than going out with others, but I no longer struggle the way that I used to because of music. As always, there comes a time when you have to look up and step out to take yourself to the next level. In doing so, you often receive a lot of pushback from people around you who don't agree with or understand your vision. This is entirely normal and expected when you're doing something great. One thing I personally didn't expect was for others' insecurities and traumas to get in the way of their support for what I do. I recall being very insecure in myself and my craft at one point, and as a result, I studied those that I felt were much better than me. This never made me not want to support what they were doing; It only attracted me more. As I venture deeper into the music industry, I notice that some people will know who you are and what you do but choose to ignore you because they don't want their shine taken away. This song offers a form of support while also addressing the issue at hand so that we can continue to grow as artists. The song gives off a fun and groovy vibe to represent my understanding of dancing. I compare the issue to dancing because that's exactly what it is, a rhythmic (repeated) sequence of steps taken by multiple parties resulting in the form of entertainment. While the matter can be entertaining, the main focus is the conflict that can arise between both parties if they are not on the same rhythm. Insert the title, "Stick and Move," a boxing technique that I consider a dance representing the conflict between both parties. In the first verse, I express my interaction with some of these individuals who have slighted me in ways they may not have noticed and how it made me feel. Though it can get to me at times, I tend to be very forgiving and understanding which keeps my confidence up, igniting the fire within. The second verse goes deeper into the issue, explaining my thought process on understanding what's really happening and how to solve it. Ultimately we all need a little patience. Even when frustrations are high, the conversation can still be had in healthy ways so that we all can thrive and flourish within this industry.
