Wow, I am so excited and I just thought it was right to update all my visitors to this Clarabelle blog, especially for those of you who have been following my new music journey.
I uploaded 4 of my original songs onto the music membership website, Music Ray late last night and I now have 6 “Official” fans, woo hoo, this is absolutely amazing for me. I am so happy I could cry….but I won’t, I’ll dance around my living room instead. 🙂
A very special thank you to all of you for your continued support and encouragement whether it is my original music, poetry or inspirational blog posts – long may it continue.
I can’t sleep with excitement, yes, exactly, NOT worry, pure 100% EXCITEMENT because I am making massive progress towards my childhood dreams of becoming a successful Singer/Songwriter.
In this post I would like to share with you a full SAMPLE music track of my original song “In Time We Heal” that I wrote this year. I created the lyrics and the melody and Gary Stitt from Canada has arranged and is playing the piano backing track. Gary is also singing the vocals in this sample and I think he did an amazing job here.
I will be in the recording studio in mid-December to create the final masterpiece and then it’s all systems go, just you try and stop me world hahahah 🙂
Below(highlighted in red) is the SoundCloud link to hear the track, I do hope you like it and please let me know what you think, the words are special, the lyrics are precious, they come from my heart and soul…..hence the title “In Time We Heal” by Clarabelle.
If you are a regular visitor to this blog you will know that I have been working away behind the scenes on my own original music. This creative process takes along time but I am very pleased to say that I am certainly making progress. I have a great team of professional musicians behind me and it makes the whole process a whole lot easier and make the songs better too.
The Youtube video below was recorded by me 2 days ago and it is the first live recording of me singing my original song “Yes You Can” to the guitar backing track which was arranged and played by Shako from New York. I am sure you will agree that Shako did an amazing job with the backing track. Things are certainly not perfect, keeping it real here for the moment, but I just wanted to share with you the progress that I am making.
Dream Come True
I feel very proud of myself because this is a dream come true for me. Next step is to take the tracks to the recording studio to be professionally recorded with the assistance of an expert sound engineer, this is in my current planning.
Yes You Can
The song “Yes You Can” has very inspirational and motivational words and I do hope it empowers you to “keep going” with whatever YOU want to achieve in life.
Thank you so much in advance for taking time to watch the video and please let me know what you think because I really do welcome your feedback.
You may remember a few weeks back I blog posted for the very first time a YouTube video of me singing one of my original songs “I Am Here”.
This has been a dream of mine since I was a child to be a successful songwriter but I never did anything about it until now…..over 30 years later!! I have a strong inner belief in my creative talents so I just started writing to different music production and publishing companies to get their feedback on my lyrics/songs. I am so excited because I received some really positive feedback this evening from a company in Nashville who I wrote to no less than 24 hours ago, here is what they said about my song:
I hope you’re having a good day. I’ve had a chance to review your lyric, “I Am Here”. Please see review below.
“I Am Here”: You have good rhyme through out the lyric which creates good rhythm which makes the song flow well. You have good imagery and description as you use your words to paint the scenes and bring the song to life. You’ve captured and expressed the emotions well as you can feel the love, hope, strength, longing, wonder etc… This is important b/c emotion is how people connect with music. The subject matter is strong as well as the length, song structure and verse/chorus format.
“I Am Here” is a lyric we’d be interested in working with you on.
The reason I am sharing this with you is because I want to use myself as a real life, in the moment, example. I want YOU to never let go of your childhood dreams, believe in your abilities and talents and put your energy out there……the Universe WILL respond, believe that, I am living proof of that.
Now, I have no idea what will happen with my songwriting career going forward, but all I know now, is that this has truly inspired me to keep going and going and going and going. By me putting my energy out there and getting that response this evening, it has given me even more motivation, drive and enthusiasm to carry on and make it happen for myself. I will absolutely keep you posted on developments.
Remember, YOU are a miracle already, YOU have the magic inside of you to dream big but also to turn that dream into a reality…..PUT YOUR ENERGY OUT THERE!!
Much love to you as always, follow your dreams that you hold in your heart, Clarabelle.
