Why I turned down a huge tour

April 1, 2017
Indie Musician Touring

I’m just gonna say it:
The music industry is as messed up as it gets.

As you can see, I’m a little more than mad. I don’t normally like writing posts that are negative in nature, but I just couldn’t let this one go. Let me dive straight into the reason why I am writing this post…

✨ Room for a gypsy soul ✨

March 10, 2017
Room for a Gypsy Soul - The Lovely Indie Blog by songstress Jessica Allossery http://www.thelovelyindie.com/

Last year I went through one of the darkest periods in my life. I felt tortured inside. Alone and broken. I thought I’d never be able to pick up my own pieces and put them back together again.

After about a full year of confusion & sadness, and 6 months of complete downward spiral darkness, I decided it was time to make a change and start rewiring the thought patterns in my brain from HELPLESSNESS to COURAGE.… Giving my bedroom a facelift was the first step to recovery and re-discovery.

Welcome to Africa!!!

February 14, 2017
Heading to South Africa? Here are some destination ideas.

Guess what?! I’m in Africa again!!! What else is new. LOL! South Africa has become one my most favourite happy places. I feel safe here, adventurous and looked after by the sunshine. The atmosphere is warm and inviting, the culture is vibrant, the people are wonderful and the landscape is a vision in itself. I have some incredible friends here and I’ve made it my goal to come back regularly for a visit, and spend time getting inspired by the earth and its magnificent beauties.

**Ahem, all the while dodging the Canadian winter.
HELLO WARMTH!
Please be my friend forever!!! Continue Reading…

🎃 A Halloween Delight 🎃

October 27, 2016
A Beautiful Rendition of a Heavy Metal Song - and a DIY Music video to go with it!

There’s something about the eerie darkness that has always fascinated me.

Am I a heartfelt, happy, inspired person? Yes. Do I have a dark side… Yes.

In film school I always thoroughly enjoyed making horror films. Writing, directing, editing… Everything about producing eerie movies, and bringing up unsettled nerves makes me feel very accomplished. Probably because it’s a creative way for me to let out my inner demons… Even if it’s ‘just for play’. Continue Reading…

Thankful is something that has really been ringing in my ears lately. Every day I wake up with an abundance of thanks for all the things in my life, big or small. Sometimes I’m thankful for my family’s health & wellbeing, sometimes I’m thankful for a hot shower, sometimes I’m thankful for my little cactus sitting on my bedside table! Yup, I’m thankful for a pointy plant and I’m prouuuud of it!! Continue Reading…
