The music industry is as messed up as it gets.

🎃 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…

In a world full of record labels, it’s easy to get caught up in the dream.
That dream of getting your big break moment, when a big-wig from Hollywood calls you up and wants to sign you on their label.
PERFECT! It’s everything I’ve always wanted, and the rest of my life will be sorted out and everything will be rainbows and cupcakes!

Right?

 

I can’t tell you how far from the truth that statement is. Continue Reading…

When I started college back in 2008, I was living with two second years who already had their social circles, and were always out of the house. We didn’t have a tv and things got pretty boring pretttttty fast, so I started watching youtube videos on a daily basis. I kept discovering new videos and awesome youtubers. I got addicted! And then I discovered what a cover was (at that point I had never even knew it was a ‘thing’).  I immediately fell in love with these artists and songs that were being recorded in such a different and unique way. I wanted in! Continue Reading…
