American Music Awards Wrap Up

American Music Awards Wrap Up

Opening scene….a tableau in which Taylor Swift proceeds to poison the man at the table. L.O.L. She played crazy really well. Maybe TOO well. Haha. But I like the song and she did it well. Hit the notes! She’s come a long way in her ability to perform. “I’m Not the Only One” by Sam Smith was very groove worthy. Like that track. The addition of the rap was cool.   I thought Ariana Grande’s reprisal of “Problem” in a jazz context was interesting. Unique. My husband didn’t agree. Selena Gomez performance of “The Heart Wants What it Wants” was… Read more »

Musical Road Trip- New Orleans

Musical Road Trip- New Orleans

New Orleans! Practically synonymous with music. Of all kinds. Jazz, dixie, cajun, zydeco, reggae…probably everything else too. I’ve wanted to visit this musical city for quite some time. And it looks like that time is coming soon! Hopefully this winter. So I thought what better time than now to start some research on where to go. Apparently, Frenchmen St is the place to go for live music.

It sounds understated- not flashy looks… Read more »

Metamorphosis of recording

Metamorphosis of recording

Funny how different music recording is now from when I started. My journey with actual recording started as a teenager when I won a contest  for songwriting. The prize was 2 songs arranged and produced in a big studio. It was an exciting experience, and it helped me realize how I could fully actualize my songs. Until then I didn’t really know what to do with the songs I was writing. That’s when I discovered the 4-track recorder. And here it is:   Yep, I know. I’ve never been able to bring myself to get rid of it. I’m a bit… Read more »
