Well hello my lovely readers, it’s been too long. The world of music has officially sucked me in and it’s not giving me back! I’ve been busy singing until I literally can’t sing anymore and trying to keep up with all the amazing pop music coming out this summer.
Since I gave up the desk job in April I’ve had the pleasure of performing with some of Dallas’ best musicians on a weekly basis. It’s been such a growing and amazing experience to share the stage with such exceptional talent and have the opportunity to tune my own skills. To say it’s been a challenge at times is definitely an understatement. The voice is a finicky mistress and she just flat out tells me when she’s done, at times right in the middle of a performance. I’m definitely learning a massive amount of control and endurance during my performances that will hopefully make me a better and long lasting performer.
Aside from performing every week I’m still chipping away at the writing machine. Growing up as a singer I always dabbled in writing but never considered myself a strong lyricist. This last year working with my production team has taught me so much about the art of a good song. It continues to push me and I’m excited to put some quality work out to the world.
So while I continue to write, record and perform I’ll keep having some fun behind the camera making videos for you guys. This video by far was the most fun I’ve had. What started as a Sarah Sellers “typical” cover idea – video, mic, guitar and singer – turned into a new track and a new series I’m starting called the Backyard Sessions. Why not right? So check out my latest cover of Katy Perry’s Roar and check back for my cover of Jessie J’s Wild VERY soon!
