Hey there! So for my first blog entry I would just like to say that I have no idea what is going on. WordPress isn’t that confusing, but I think in the process of trying to blog, I’ve messed up my website. I guess that’s why I’m a musician and not a website designer…
I would like to give a quick thanks to the man who DID design this website, Derek Ohanesian. He is a total computer rockstar.
In terms of things that you actually care to read, (no offense, Derek) my demo is finished!!! I spent hours and hours in the studio with Dave Veslocki, the guitar aficionado and producer who really made my album come to life. He is honestly a music genius.. no really, he is! He graduated from Yale School of Music, played with Cirque du Soleil, and he tours all over Asia playing Bach on classical guitar. It was such a pleasure being in the studio with him- he has limitless musical knowledge and expertise and we had such a good flow together!
I had a really scratchy voice one day before we recorded so we went to the bar at 11AM so I could drink Guinness. One of my good friend’s from college researched vocal cord health and discovered that guinness beer is actually AMAZING for vocal cords. When I asked if the bar was open the bartender looked at me like I was crazy. Neverthless, recording went really smoothly and my voice sounded pretty silky on the track.. I won’t tell you which one
Saul Kurtz and I also cowrote this new tune called ‘Come Back to Me’ which I cannot stop humming and singing! It was a really interesting experience writing with another songwriter- definitely challenging at times, but absolutely worth it. Dave played slide guitar in the background and it sounds sooo beautiful, just wait till you hear it. Saul wrote the chords, and I wrote the words. It was a perfect combination of talent- great production, music, and lyrics. I’m so excited to share it with you all!
Peace and love,
