I am delighted to say that I have reached an important milestone in my new Singing/Songwriter career path. My single, “Runaway Love” has now made it on iTunes today and I am so excited. It’s been exactly 6 months and 2 days since I wrote the song, all alone in my little cosy home in Motherwell, Scotland.
I feel I am progressing quite nicely and I am doing my first private gig this week, so all very exciting. I am pushing myself out of my comfort zone and I know I am growing by doing this – this is such a fulfilling journey!!
I started this Clarabelle blog mainly to share my poetry and it has evolved into so much more than that. The blog, I feel, has gently and graciously guided me into my Singing/Songwriting Career, for sure. I like to call my songs “Singing Poetry”, original poetic verses with a beautiful melody.
So it just goes to show that if you are passionate about something in life YOU can make it happen, you’ve just got to take that first baby step.
May each step that you take today move you closer to achieving your dreams. Thank you for being here.
I’ve been working with some wonderful Artists to help me develop my original music and help me to “get it out there”. Below is a video that has just been created for me, for my original song, “Runaway Love”. Thank you to Calvin West www.calvinwest.co.uk for creating this for me, you did a great job. Now you have the lyrics, you can sing along too. I hope you like it. Much love to you today and always and please feel free share with your friends. Thank you. Clarabelle
I have been in the Professional Recording Studio this week (Reeltime Music Studios) recording my very first ever EP, entitled “Hearts Apart”.
Below is a Youtube video of track 4 from this EP “Runaway Love” which was released yesterday (09.01.14) from this EP. I am singing on the track and Denis Kilty, www.deniskilty.com arranged and played the piano backing track.
I know I have still got a long, huge, MASSIVE way to go but hey I only started doing this in May 2013 so I am definitely pleased with my progress. There is still lots to do in terms of promotion, vocal coaching, practising, performing, gigs, Album covers, websites, professional photographs, videos etc etc etc however why wait, let’s get my music out to the Universe, I’ve just go to go for it. If I wait for perfection then no one would hear anything!! I like to think that “there isperfection in the imperfections”.
What is the Song About?
Runaway Love is a highly emotional love song about the emotional pain of being in love whilst having the sense of being “played” but you still love that person and the memory of that love is still in your heart.
All my songs are based on my own personal experiences or experiences of people very close to me so I am sure the words will ring true for some people listening.

Thank you and please let me know what you think of the track.
I am delighted to share with you that yesterday I experienced my very first professional recording of my original songs. I am making my first ever music EP, entitled “Hearts Apart” and I am so excited. A big shout out to Chris, Professional Sound Engineer from Reeltime Music Studios who was an absolute gem and totally made me feel at ease. Was I nervous? “Yes” a little bit, but I think more excited than nervous because this just feels right to me. I will be the first to say that I am very inexperienced in the Music Industry and I know I have a huge learning curve ahead of me but the great thing is I am not holding myself back, I am just facing my fears and going for it!! I know that if I stay in my comfort zone here, I will never grow so I have to get comfortable feeling “uncomfortable”. Basically as a Professional Coach, I am practicing what I preach….quite literally!!
EP, “Hearts Apart”
The EP will consist of four songs, I did take up six to record but two could not be used at this moment in time because one of the songs I am finding it difficult to master, so much more practice needed there and the other song needs a better quality backing track. So the songs on the EP are:
1. In Time We Heal
2. I Am Here
3. You Are
4. Runaway Love
What are the songs about?
All the songs are love ballads with a very highly emotional attachment to me. I speak my heart’s truth and cry out my soul in these songs because they are all based on my own experiences or experiences of people very close to me. There is nothing hidden away in these songs, my deepest heart’s secrets are shared because they are true and very personal to me. I like to call them “beautiful songs” because I feel that is what they really are.
In Time We Heal: An emotional song about a broken relationship and overcoming tough times.
I Am Here:
A highly emotional song about missing a loved one (my Dad in heaven).
This is an emotional love song about loving someone who doesn’t love you back but you still have that person on a pedestal. Emotions are torn between loving and letting go.
This is an emotional love song about the emotional pain of being in love and the feeling of being “played” but you still love that person and the memory of that love is still in your heart.
I am so excited to share the finished article with you, I should receive the master CD in a couple of days and then I’ll get to work with unleashing my songs into the Universe.
I loving this creative journey and I feel, “this is my time”.
Thank you, as always, for being here, there is a lot of love here for you.
Wishing you a beautiful day on your journey of life.
