I’m all wrapped up and cosy inside my songwriting cocoon right now (as I only work Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays I get the majority of the week to write songs and be poor… lol). Al Mar amazed me, once again, with beats so hot I want to fling myself out the window and hope to fly. But instead, I’ll write some melodies and words to emulate that flying wish.
Also, I met Eric Roberson and his band last week on a singer songwriter workshop which was incredibly inspiring. The name of the band is Tito’s Turn and their energy is amazing! It was a two day event, the day after the workshop they killed it at a private show. I’ll be keeping in touch with some of the band members and I feel like I’ve gained some friends. And who knows what we could do in the future..? I’ll keep you updated! ;o)
But, the most important reason for this blog entry is that my close friend Gracielle Uda made some artwork inspired by the poem See Through
I posted recently. I felt the urge to write some poetry and decided to get on my blog and write it in realtime, which I did. I just started typing and posted it. After I read my poem I knew the best artist to grace it was Gracielle (yes, yes… pun definitely intended). So I called her and asked her if she’d be up for it. She read my poem and loved it. And now I am very very excited to present her lovely artwork on my blog and hopefully, this will be the first of many.

Al Mar and I are composing on the spot, as we speak, via Skype, right now!! I feel like such a Person 2.0… Or are we at 2.1 now?
My goodness this is GREAT!!!!!!
I’ll get back to you on this particular track we’re creating now, and I’ll make a link to this post, so you can see exactly which song came out of our cyber songwriting session.
Back to it!
I’m sick.. This flu is hardcore (yes it’s the same one I had a couple of weeks ago, it travelled down to my lungs and has been having a feverishly rowdy party there all week), it won’t let go, I haven’t been able to sing in weeks and I’m sad.
So I’ll try to cheer myself up with a nice picture and maybe you’ll like it too..
Kick this flu’s ass you will, young Jedi… hmmm?!
