Back to the Drawing Board

Well, I wish I could say how pleased I am to get the recording out the way, however, this is not the case as I go back to the drawing board with “Its A New Day”.  I am planning on performing it tomorrow and as it will be done LIVE I think I may get away with it nonetheless, I was hoping to be having it completed so I can rest my soul and let it go to work.

This project has been a real learning curve of my patience as its taken a quarter of a year to get thus far.  Of course with a big machine behind me things would be different, so in a way I am super-pleased to see what comes out of my kitchen as I venture on.

I know that being part of WIM Club Nite production has really helped me to grow and I took such joy in sharing my material at the #NOCOVERSCLUB in #Northfield on Thursday nite – it was only the return journey that took its toll; how the ghouls come out to play  :-((

So what is the lesson that the Universe is teaching me in this process?  Well I have learned that as much as I think I need to be reliant, it is imperative that I remain #FOCUSED in my plight to achieve and complete this project.  I am finding that I am becoming more open as I connect with my audiences and appreciate having that relationship, which I have never really had before.

There is a true sense of comradery that as a performer working with PA and backing tracks, you don’t quite feel the integrity of it all.  This is a blessing with a difference and I plan to relish in it whilst I still have the ability of my #defaultbutton.

Go enjoy your musical weekend world!  #LifeIsForLiving x

Its A New Day… Let the games begin!

I forget I have this wonderful page to be able to blog from and I guess that with all the other blogging sources such as #LINKED-IN #FACEBOOK and every other platform created to man, its easy to down tools and “step-away-from-the-vehicle” as it all get too much.

So what I should really have done last week when I thought I had it all ready to rumble is blog my emotions from here.  Just being able to express the REAL-time developments is something when you can’t speak to anyone. I have had such a journey with this project and its still only three and a half months into it.

So before I can get its approval for my platform, I am still finding things I want to tweek, however as I mentioned to someone… sometimes you can tweek to death and still not be happy, so I think its time for me to STEP AWAY FROM THE RECORDING & production and let the song do its job.

Friends of the Minelli Madness, this is such a wonderful experience and even as I expressed the comings to staff on a medical profession, I found myself welling up as I am still overwhelmed by this beauty and challenge that I am about to undertake.

I invite you to join me on this wonderful trip as I really don’t want to have to go-it-alone and they say its always better-out-than-in.

The Artiste in Me –

In my vision for 2018, I wanted to share my work with the world and then use it to try and assist some of the worthy causes in my life, where I may be able to make a difference to others.

So this is my link to my Page on CD Baby where I hope you will buy any of the singles available and help me to bring focus to some of the illnesses that people live with – if we can find a cure or ways for others lives to become easier to manage, would we not want to try and make a change for the generations to follow?



If Only! Minelli On Ice

I found this link to a very old piece covered many moons ago.

It shares a story about my ambitions as an ice dancer – I recall text editing not quite ending up  in article the way I expressed it nonetheless – editorial rights?

Anyway, I have been putting off sharing the poem ” The Missing” with you for soooooo long, however seeing this really has brought it to the fore.

I doubt I will ever throw away my skates and yet I may never wear them again, either.
