STAY WITH ME SINGLE RELEASE

 

“Stay With Me” – video shoot.

I’m so excited after tonight’s video shoot that I cannot fall asleep!

I’m pretty sure this is why pubs were invented, for those moments when you are incredibly happy and stoked.

Makes me think of the very first video shoot that I ever did, when I ended up being awake the whole night since I was so high up. I wasn’t celebrating with anyone though, I was just laying on the couch in the living room with the world’s biggest smile ever.

Tonight was another reminder of how incredibly lucky we are to have the sort of gadgets that we have at our disposal. The amount of “things” that you can do on your own is staggering!

I’m incredible grateful for the “family effort” tonight and the fact that I have the immediate family that I have. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

Artists before me didn’t have access to YouTube, so you would only hear of those who obtained publishing/recording deals, people could not record their music without spending a substantial amount of money and there was no way that you could create the sort of videos that people can now make in their living rooms.

As a creative spirit I have to say that it excites me to no end, that it is possible to overcome all sorts of traditional “obstacles” to get your own, original music out there!

Even personal obstacles; such as not knowing how to write notation, can be bypassed! Back in the ancient days of the composers they had no way of recording their music, so they had to know how to write it all down.

I remember my joy when I received a digital camera for Christmas back in 2006, since it enabled me to record my ideas on the spot! I would sit with the camera on my knees, while playing the guitar and signing, so that I could get some “drafts” down whenever an idea emerged!

Likewise I was happy beyond happy when I received an old, worn out, cassette player/recorder, when I first arrived to the U.S.A. as a teenager, since this made it possible for me to record my ideas.

I was the only one of my musician friends who didn’t have any digital recording equipment, so you can imagine my joy when I finally obtained Studio One and a Presonus interface back in 2007/2008. I saved up money to buy it and received an old computer from a relative, which meant that I now had an even better way of documenting ideas as they came to me. Still I had no idea how to use it and was not the musician that I am today. I was also doing a very different style of music.Β Yet ideas are ideas and have to be plotted down somewhere, before they disappear.

I have lots of butterflies now that “Berit – Vol.1” it’s nearing its completion! And once it is out there, the thank you list will be remarkably short, which will probably make me even more fond of the “product.”

Then again, album one will not be finished unless I get some sleep, on the other hand: what is life without those moments when your are so happy that you don’t even know where to place yourself, what to say, or what to do!

Thank You So Much!

I was just notified that “Classical & Crossover Magazine” have featured me on their digital front page & have posted my latest video, which is really cool of them!

You can read it here:Β “How Cheap Will You Sell Your Soul?”

In addition I was also featured by a digital Heavy Metal Magazine today, so talk about contrast! I love it! This is fun πŸ˜€

Thanks a lot to Elisabeth for writing the press release! I had not seen it until now. It looks really good! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

cic metal press

On the 20th of this month Norway’s equivalence of BBC aired a great program focusing on female guitar players! It was awesome to receive nationwide radio play for my metal & classical music!Β Hear The Interview Here!

I’m happy that I was asked about online haters & bullies, since this gave me the opportunity to highlight that I’ve seen other female guitar players complain about this as well. In short it means that you don’t stand alone if you are in the receiving end of putrid hatred as a woman playing the guitar. If you are self-critical and take what you are doing very seriously it is especially important to remember that hatred can come your way just because of your gender, because people don’t like your face, or your hair, or your outfit, or whatever; I know of course that there are people out there who complain about sexism when there is none and play the gender card just because; this is a pity because real sexism does exists and it should be addressed so that other women will know that they do not stand alone! Once again I am aware that this is a multifaceted issue … I just don’t want creative females to feel unwelcome or to be chased away from unleashing their musical creativity upon the world!

Thanks again to those of you out there who support what I do! I really appreciate it! πŸ™‚
