“Ready” by Pat McCay
From South Africa comes the uber-talented indie singer/songwriter Pat McCay and the honest lyricism that makes up “Ready”. With this refreshing blend of melodies and lyrics he reminds us all that there are times in which things will seem dire and we might get lost but there’s always a silver lining. He knows that life needs those moments to test us and help us grow and learn to be able to move forward and not stay static and stuck in one place. The soundscape is human and so real as it speaks words that are clear for us to understand and paints a picture that while charming is also familiar. We can dive into this world knowing that there is a lesson waiting that is sure to give us hope and motivation to push on. Enjoy!
“We live in a world that pushes the unattainable notion of perfection, and many of us live under the illusion that we will pursue our dreams one day, when all the stars align. Ready vocalises the idea that we will never truly be ready to take those first uncomfortable steps towards our destiny if we don’t start seeing failure as feedback. We need to realise that failing is not only okay, it’s absolutely necessary for growth. In this way, understanding that we’re never quite ready actually readies us all the more to move towards the journey we wish to take.” – Pat McCay
