Singled Out: The Fairchilds' Unbreakable
Unbreakable is one of those songs that came together very naturally. I remember writing the song at my parents' house in the south of France on a cold rainy December day. Some of my closest friends were going through a very tough phase at that time, having the feeling that the world was melting down around them but yet refusing to surrender.
Sadly, the world is - especially in this day and age - akin to a wild roller coaster ride with more downs than ups but it is also a compelling journey which we can't get off and remaining hopeful and optimistic is the key to happiness.
Saying "I'm strong, not unbreakable" is not being weak but merely an admission that we're only human. We can face up to a challenge but we also all have a breaking point within ourselves.
Being a big movie aficionado, most of my songs are structured like movie snippets with a storyline, characters and sequences. Pretty much like a novel where you are the protagonist - if you close your eyes, you can make up your own story of this guy walking through life and fighting his personal battles.
Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album right here!
