Now that I know how to embed videos in my blog I thought I should probably post this little video I made of some of my work from over the past 12 years.
Hope you enjoy!
That's me singing too and I know I keep that pretty quiet
but Marco and I are working on a new CD with the gorgeous Ged and Syd
and we're aiming to release it towards the end of the year...
Hopefully by then I will have figured out how to make
some videos to go along with our music :)
Just wanted to share for those of you on your own creative journey that it has, for me, not all been easy to let my voice be heard. I sang for years in my bedroom, in the shower, busting out in the house when no one was around...singing along to mums Dolly Parton records (Jolene, Jolene, Jolene,Joleeeeeeene...I'm begging of you please dont take my man!)and memorising all the words to Grease when I was 12...
but it wasn't until I was in my early thirties that I began to get the courage to sing in front of others, first just to Marco, then one other friend, then a small group, then after three years of encouragement from Marco and others, my first gig! 8 months pregnant with Sienna!
I still get super nervous about performing but I challenge myself to "feel the fear and do it anyway"! We just recorded a version of "Here comes the sun" and I'd love you all to send me your best heart warming Spring/summer pics so I can make a little slideshow for my Youtube channel. Also if you'd like to hear some music from our last CD you can head over here for a listen :)
