Demopolis native releases original songs on iTunes

Fallon Keen“I’ve always really, really loved music.”

Fallon Keen wrote her first song on Christmas Day in 2009 as a senior at Demopolis High School. The simple song, “You’re All I Need,” became the first of many she would pen when before she seriously started writing two years later.

Now she has posted two of her compositions on iTunes.

Her inspiration, she said, comes from her connection with God. “That’s the way that He’s talking, and I just write out whatever He’s telling me,” she said.

The first of the new songs, “Meet with Me,” tells of coming to God “completely vulnerable and without anything outside that’s limiting you and finding that intimacy with Him.”

“We Pray to You” came from her reaction to what she learned at The Passion Conference in Atlanta, where she now lives. It was there she found out about the 27 million slaves in the world today, including many who are forced into sex trafficking.

“It burdened me when I heard about it,” she said, and asked herself what she could do.

“Then I started thinking about all the people who are lost in general,” she continued, and wondered “what I was doing each day to contribute, to help the people who need it, to be the hands and feet of Jesus.

Her songs are “literally played out in my head.” Keen had no collaborators on writing them, and she used the piano to figure out the chords that would go with the music she had composed.

Musicians at Giant Records, where she recorded, worked with her to flesh out the music and prepare it for release on iTunes and other stores.

Right now, Keen said, she is strictly releasing audio recordings but is working on making a music video for “We Pray to You” within the next few months.

After finishing at DHS, Keen studied Spanish and biology at the University of Alabama. Now, not only does she write and record, but the young composer is enrolled in chiropractic school, following in her father, Peter’s footsteps. She’s not sure how she manages to do it all.

“I have no idea. It has been amazing to me how it has just worked out,” she said. “When I stop and think about it, there’s no way I can do all of this. Really in the end it’s just letting it go to God and keeping my eyes on Him and letting Him guide my feet.”

Keen isn’t looking to put the focus on herself with the music she creates. She is waiting to see where God takes her.

“My music isn’t about showcasing me or my talent, but it’s about glorifying God and showing the intimacy and love of God,” she said. “I hope that my music would reveal the reality that He wants to have that intimacy with every one of us.”
