Today as my sobbing subsides over the kitchen sink ( it’s been a long, amazing but terrifying year of choral directing, repertoire planning, arranging, music leading ) I remember, it is in fact exactly 5 years to the day that the CDs for our first album was released on a sunny day unlike today.
I felt it was a landmark worth marking by posting a sneaky preview of the newest song just for a ‘how are we doing 5/6 years on?’ moment..a moment of reflection as the rain beats down and the thunder crashes overhead.I am deeply tired from giving out a lot of energy this year, so just have to wait patiently for a bit til I get my inner mojo back…would love you to have a listen to the new track which I am fond of as a well behaved baby .” I Remember (The Simple Things)”
And then thought it would be good to post the first song we wrote almost 6 years ago…the song that started this wonderfully crazy , bumpy journey. But then what’s a journey without a few bumps on the way…
Its been a rip roaring summer..singing under canvas and at the Guildhall Summer School. Yesterday I wrote and recorded this..My idea of a lovely day..plugged into a pair of headphones and Logic X for some considerable hours, on my own. I am a bit of an ‘ants in my pants’ type of person, but once I am absorbed with writing and recording a new song…I am glued to the spot.
Love you to give it a spin…. right now am arranging it for a choir…that bit is always a bit trickier…hope you are having a good day x
I have been working hard this week, setting up all the songs for the gorgeous choirs. In between we managed a song, recorded wrote it in 2 days at home…and its a cracker! Just press play …..Bandcamp is a great place to buy music and its worth a go, as you can pay what you want ,or just listen to it..and the artists gets a good percentage .
SO , while I should should have been tidying my room and recording songs for a very important songbook I got carried away making a video for our October Single of the month…it is fun and lovely and see if you can spot the Hitchcockian moment .
Pretty grim round here due to Gitika losing her mum and we are all very sad. Here is our new video that we did actually finish 2 months ago but been too raw to post. So now it’s posted everywhere in the crazy social media flurry you have to do, so sorry if you have […]
Hallo Beautiful People 5 years today our first album was released and we are still walking the freedom line. It is a cause for celebration. Thought you might like to hear the first mix of one of our newest batches of songs. It’s called “I Remember ( The Simple Things)” Have a Lovely Day .
Its nice and quiet round here..Some days no-one passes by at all. No slamming of car doors in the night, no-one trying to double park, or in their car with all the winders open talking to Aunt Maud about the state of their marriage. There is a lot to be said for days when no-one […]
