STAY WITH ME SINGLE RELEASE

 

Video Blog!

For only 1$ you can unlock all of my update & sneak peek videos regarding my upcoming 3rd release, which will be a multi-album affair! I played with the idea of a video blog back in 2013 and started this written blog back in 2015 due to fans asking for one. Early this year I started a Patreon where I release two new video updates every month! So if you want to follow a consistent video-blog there is now an opportunity to do so.

If you pay more than 1$ you unlock more exclusives such as music lessons, care packages, etc; If you like my artistry & you are curious as to what I’m doing, then please sign up!

Once I’m done with my 3rd “album,” there will obviously be more creative projects in the works, since I’m always in the middle of a creative process!

Here are some “blog-style” videos that are publicly available on my YouTube! Sign up to see my “Patreon-only” video library.

Super Cool To See This. Thanks!

I’m not complaining! I can’t believe the longevity of classical music. It is quite something to behold.

The U.S.A. has always been my nr.1 market, followed by the U.K. & Norway. Considering how huge America actually is and how much music that is released there constantly, I cannot believe that this Zombie-Album has been hanging in there for roughly 4 years! I think that says it all. My metal music sold as well, but it never officially charted on Amazon and/or iTunes (to my knowledge), but it did get me into the top. 3 as the only unsigned artist on the streaming site ReverbNation.

In addition it obviously struck a chord with press people. I guess it is cool with a female rocker, kicking ass, in a fake uniform πŸ˜› (mwha-ha-ha)

I thought that I was going to release a Major Label Classical Crossover Album last year, but ended up ill unfortunately, now I’m working on original music since I needed something lighter, to bring me back … something that could excite me instantly.

There will be more Classical guitar playing down the road, but for understandable reasons I just had to go back to what initially inspired me to pick up my 1st instrument…

Classical virtuoso music is incredibly tough on the upper body and I guess that I can consider myself lucky since I’ve never encountered any issues with my wrists and that I haven’t been permanently damaged, yet.

Classical virtuoso music is also tough mentally, as you sit for months repeating runs over and over for hours every day, in addition to the pressure of playing these high-performance pieces live, where any tension or nervousness will affect the tone.

Everything and anything is audible.

You have to be married to your instrument and your routine. In addition to copying with motivation loss due to the repetitiveness and the discomfort. You’ll get into the habit of constantly turning your head to glance at whatever watch, since your practice routine becomes your all and everything.

Therefore it makes me very happy to feel that my effort is being appreciated.

I’m very happy to see the numbers on my Bach video as well. There will be more.

On the 10th of August I will be singing classical music and do my 1st opera concert. It will be a mix of religious and secular music and is a fundraiser that I’ve initiated for my favourite church. As I’ve mentioned before; there is a challenge in keeping these places of worship around, due to low attendance numbers, no government support and a general lack of interest.

It is a pity, because it is part of England’s cultural and spiritual heritage.

I’m looking forward to filling the church with song and I hope that my readership will join me.

If you like what I do then make sure that you check out my books and my other music releases.Β 

If you are keen on music lessons, then I currently offer those over Skype only. They can be purchased either here or here.

When You Decide To Not Be Polite & Troll People Back.

comments youtube.jpg

There are lots of highly incompetent “men” out there who really can’t play their instrument for shit. (Nor govern or inspire, mind you). There are also plenty of musicians regardless of gender who fall prey to “group think,” or maybe they just don’t have the “explorer” gene. Whenever I do my homework when it comes to how people handle their electric guitar in “classical” situations and whenever I see comments like the one above it serves as a reminder of how lucky women are to have a seat at the table and how dull show biz and the rest of the creative industries would be if this wasn’t the case…

Innovation and courage to introduce new concepts and ideas should always be encouraged. The creative professions will otherwise grow stale and boring.

My classical album is still in the charts πŸ™‚ This is very cool and fun to see!

On Top Again!!!!!

Whaaaaaaaaaaa!!!! I can’t believe it! Every single time I nearly faint and fall off my chair! I’m stoked! 4 years and still going strong!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Not that long ago I blogged about my album hanging in the charts once again, even jumping up, well now my fans decided that the album deserved to be in the top spot once again! For all I know maybe it went to Nr.1, because I haven’t really been checking the charts since my last long joyous outburst on here! – Actually now that I think of it I did see that it had jumped up to 25, but forgot to post about it! Turns out I didn’t have to promote it because it went up even further anyway! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ Wo-ho wo-ho wo-ho wo-ho!!!! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

On the 1st of May I was here:

Thank you and thank you and thank you and thank you! Just imagine if I had a proper marketing Β budget for this thing! Wha-ha wha-ha I know I have a hit! πŸ˜€ A hit!!! A hit!!! Ti-hi-hi-hi-hi-hi-hi-hi-hi-hi-hi-hi-hi-hi-hi-hi!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I was super stoked when it initially charted pretty low in Germany, the USA, and whatnot, during the release week in 2014, then I nearly died when it went up to Nr.1 in early 2015, I don’t know what to say anymore because this thing just keeps on charting in various categories as well πŸ˜€ Zombie album deluxe – I’m so glad!!!!! Nothing feels better than to sell music πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ I’m the most grateful and happy musician ever!!!! Thanks, thanks,thanks, thanks, thanks & thanks again! ❀ πŸ˜€ ❀ πŸ˜€ ❀ πŸ˜€

Here are my two latest videos by the way, if you haven’t seen them! πŸ™‚ ❀ πŸ™‚ ❀ Β πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

 

A 30 min Guitar Lesson Video + More New Music!

Today I released a 30 min guitar lesson video for those who pay 10$ and up on my Patreon account! I also released my 2nd update for this month; so if you want to hear more music from my 3rd album then make sure that you sign up here:Β My Patreon!

Yesterday before I went to bed I saw that myΒ classical albumΒ had jumped up on the Amazon Bestseller chart after falling down. On the 22nd it was down on 44, yesterday it was up on 29, and now it had gone up to 27! That is really cool since albums usually don’t chart that long for independent artists! Earlier this year it was hanging in there for over 2 weeks on the chart, and without any new videos or anything! I clearly have to release more classical recordings! But first I’m going to put out a whole bunch of original material that I feel very strongly about! πŸ˜› Make sure that you check out my Rock’n’Roll music as well πŸ˜›

Thanks again to all these Americans who buy my music!!! The U.S.A. have always been my nr.1 country when it comes to fans, followers & buyers! ❀ Thanks a million & God Bless!!!!!
