Music Journey

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.

Original Songs

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.

That’s all folks for now and THANK YOU.

Love Clarabelle….tra lah lah lah lah 🙂

I Can’t Sleep……

Clarabelle Quotes, Listen to the sound of my heart

Excitement

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.

Yes You Can

Original Music

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.

Much love to you today, Clarabelle

I Am The Greatest

Greatest Songwriter

Just Believe

Sometimes you just have to believe that YOU are the greatest, you have to believe in yourself, you have to believe in your abilities, you have to believe that you are capable of achieving so much more.  You have so much potential, there is so much more of you to unleash, so much more of you to share with the world.  Now I want you to hold onto that thought and I want you to flip an imaginary switch and when you do, you 100% believe in you, now watch what you are doing, look at who you are talking to, What changes are you making in your life? What are you doing differently?  Just believe, just believe, just believe in YOU.  I wrote the lyrics, “I Am The Greatest” (see below) last month because I was strongly visualising myself being the greatest songwriter of all time and then I wrote it down (picture above).

Vision

I believe, I have faith in the unknown and I know the Universe is working in my favour and bringing it to me.  I made the decision, I made the commitment and I acted upon it, I now treasure every person and thing that I attract into my life that moves me closer to my vision.

YOU

Now I want you to believe in you, believe in it all, believe and have faith in the mystery of the unknown, that once you commit to doing something, once you commit to achieving that goal, it’s going to happen for you, sooner or later it is going to happen for you.  You are the greatest and I want you to believe that.

Below are the lyrics to my song, “I Am The Greatest”, this will be released as part of my Album, “The Becoming of Me”, I think the melody that goes with this song is really great, it is really uplifting and empowering, definitely a song to be listened to first thing in the morning or when you are feeling down and want a little boost, the song will definitely do that for you.

“I Am The Greatest” by Clarabelle created on 22 July 2013

Verse 1

You’ve gotta put the hard work in
And let your mind know
In order to catch the falling star
You’ve gotta move and go
Time it will not wait for you
Life moves very fast
So step it up, get going
Live it up, get showing
Say  I Am

Chorus

I am the greatest
I’ve changed my ways
I’ve reached the rainbow
Happy sunny days
For I am the greatest
So watch me fly
I am the greatest
This is why

Verse 2

Times are tough I know sometimes
Keep going until the end
To reach the top you have to go
Be real do not pretend
You can be the champion
You can have it all
So live it up, get moving
Play the game, get grooving
Say  I Am

Bridge

I feel my heart
I feel my soul
In changing moments
This I know

Chorus

I am the greatest
I’ve changed my ways
I’ve reached the rainbow
Happy sunny days
For I am the greatest
So watch me fly
I am the greatest
This is why
This is why
I will fly

I want you to fly today, I’ll be watching you, love Clarabelle

You Are The Key

Life is too short

Often we look for a solution to our problems “out there” however I am a great believer that you have the answer deep inside yourself.

“You Are The Key” is a song that I created a few weeks, although I do write a lot of love songs I also write a lot of uplifting and more inspiring songs too.  I hope you like this Youtube demo song and that it adds a little zest to your day (background music currently being produced).

Remember whatever you are going through in life just now “You Are The Key” to turning it all around for the better.  I have inserted the lyrics below also, so you can sing along if you wish.  Lots of love to you today, Clarabelle

YOU ARE THE KEY by Claire Marie Murray, a.k.a. Clarabelle 11 July 2013

Verse 1

Mr Inspirational believes in his dreams
Miss Influential, life is better than it seems
Mr Motivational has hunger in his soul
Mrs Positivity, always reaches her goal

Chorus

For you are the key
And this is your cue
know what you want,
Let it inspire you
Feel in your heart,
all the things you can do
For you are the key
And this is so true

Verse 2

Mr Happiness, smiles all the time
Miss Joyfulness, sings uplifting tunes in rhyme
Mr Success, nothing stops him now
Mrs Believer, knows she is wow

Chorus

For you are the key
And this is your cue
know what you want,
Let it inspire you
Feel in your heart,
all the things you can do
For you are the key
And this is so true

Bridge

Dream a bigger dream
Paradise waits for you
Be the cat with cream
There ain’t nothing you can do
Hold in your heart
Dance amidst the clouds
Uniqueness is your part
Don’t follow all the crowds

Chorus (to fade)

For you are the key
And this is your cue
know what you want,
Let it inspire you
Feel in your heart,
all the things you can do
For you are the key
And this is so true
Yes, you are the key
Believe that is true

Yes You Can Because You Are The Key

Life is too short to wait

Today I have been in creative mode, I have written two inspirational songs so far and I am very pleased with the outcome.  The songs are entitled “YES YOU CAN” and “YOU ARE THE KEY”, once I have had my songs registered with BMI and recorded on YouTube I will share them with you on this blog.

I am excited to share these songs because I believe that if you are having a tough day and you then listen to these songs, I am hoping the lyrics will connect with you in some way and uplift your spirits.  We all need a little morale boost now and again and I feel the essence of these two songs is all about that.

Make today be a “YES YOU CAN” day for you because “YOU ARE THE KEY” to turning your life around for the better.

Wishing you a day filled with happiness and joy, love Clarabelle.

Put Your Energy Out There!!

put your energy out there

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:

Claire,

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.

Divine Harmony

Divine Harmony by Clarabelle
Divine Harmony by Clarabelle

Explosive

I am a great believer that creativity and imagination are two of the key components to a happy and  fulfilling life and when you combine this with truth, love, passion, inspiration and connectedness you get something that is really “explosive”, internally and externally.  I am sure we have all experienced our dancing minds playing a “tug-of-war” with our heart-strings – lately I have been letting my heart win and my inner spirit is running joyously free.

Creative Mode

Moving out of competitive mode and into creative mode has lifted my being to another level and I feel truly liberated.  This transition has led me to create the beginnings of my first ever music album, entitled “Divine Harmony”, a compilation of inspirational music that talks to your soul, sings to your heart and connects with your mind in a magnetic manner.  I have now produced 8 musical tracks so far, let me tell you a little bit about each one:

Track 1:  “Running Free” – This musical piece tells the story of “returning to your soul”, it takes you through a journey of life experiences that have went from deep sadness and loss to letting go, breaking free and arriving at who you really are.  It is ultimately upbeat and uplifting.

Track 2:  “Hearts Apart” – I wrote this musical piece based on some recent news that my Sister, Brother-in-Law, Nephew and Nieces are all emigrating to Mississippi next month.  This musical compilation tells of the heart-warming story of my deep love for them as they travel on their own journey of happiness and adventure.

Track 3:  “Moving On” – This creative piece is ultimately about love – being, doing and having love.  It is about letting go of past loves and opening your heart to new loves now and in the future.  It is a very moving and touching musical story and I had someone special in mind when writing this musical piece.

Track 4:  “Inspiring Hearts” – This track is a part of who I am, it shares the story of my passion and desire to inspire hearts all over the world.  The music aims to connect with ones soul and deeply move them in an inspirational and motivational way.

Track 5:  “Flight of the Blue Butterfly” – This musical composition tells the story of the stages of healing towards ultimate freedom of heart, soul, mind and spirit.  The blue butterfly is very significant for me and you can see it pictured as part of my Clarabelle logo.   This harmonious musical piece aims to move you in a peaceful and spiritual way.

Track 6:  “Happiness Now” – This track is a musical compilation of what it sounds like to me to experience happiness in each and every moment.  It will help you to open up your heart to the whispers of your soul and see and feel the beauty in each precious moment of life.  Beauty is all around us and this track is a unique representation of that.

Track 7:  “Coming Home” – This musical piece tells the story of my self-journey to being at one with oneself.  It shares the realisation that the answers were always there, from within.    It is a musical expression of who I am and all I ever need to be.  In this artistic creation, “I have arrived”.

Track 8:  “I Am” – This track is a musical celebration of the soul, the artistic expression of knowing that I always knew and trusting the feelings from within.  It is an uplifting and moving musical piece that will surely touch your inner being.

Clarabelle “Divine Harmony”

There will be 13 tracks in total on the album and I aim to have it fully completed by 6 May 2013.  The album will be registered and uploaded to iTunes for immediate purchase.  I will also have it available to purchase in CD format.  Purchase price is £5.00.

If you would like to pre-order a copy of this inspirational masterpiece by Clarabelle, please note your interest below in the comments section or send me an email to claire@murraypeople.com

I am so excited about sharing the album with you, I have a real belief and faith that it will inspire you on the path to “Divine Harmony“.

Lots of love to you today, tomorrow and always,  Clarabelle.
