Cheers! (with red wine;)
I hope you enjoy my new Christmas song 'White Rider'. It's a sincere 'Thank You' from me to you for your support this year. Happy Holidays!
Holiday Spirit is all around us, accompanied by that unique, yet known silence of snow falling, glittery lights everywhere you go and the usual chit-chats on how tiired we are from Xmas parties and how and when to get rid of those extra lbs ;)
Speaking of Holidays: I have a SURPRISE coming up later on this evening. But before that another SURPRISE...FREE Download…my new single 'Replay'..here it is:
I want to thank you all of you for your ongoing support and patience. I can't emphasize how exciting it is to create art that you LOVE and BREATHE every day. Art that you BELIVE IN. Especially when you see IT taking form, shape, personality, having its OWN life:). How noble is to sincerely dig deep in the subconscious parts of your own soul only to find out there’s an enormous reservoir of hope, light, creativity, and different kind of LOVE inside..a kind of love that no one has ever shown you it’s there and how to bring that out.. And all that passion, emotions, adrenaline rush that comes with it is constantly at war with the other side of the brain and reality: those everyday struggles, e.g. having to change direction and ‘lanes’ 37 times/day to adjust to constant changes, having to work all the time to pay the bills. That takes you away from the natural flow of dream-making (it’s the biggest pain for an artist!!). Working long hours daytime so that I can focus on my music dream at night.. every night. Not having time to even sleep or rest properly and people wondering why you look so damn tiired most of the time. Sacrificing LOTS of my time, energy and personal life to give FULL LIFE to my music project. Or experiencing that moment when you’re sharing honest things with people you want to have around you, only to realize that they don’t want to hear about your project and journey but only to talk about why their boyfriend of girlfriend didn’t call them when they wanted to be called or pretending they're the 's**t' for things that I sincerely think they shouldn't even think about, let alone talking about them..ay ay ay.
Many of you ask me how do I it..having a daytime job and working full time on my music. Well, it’s f-ing tough!! There are days I am totally numb/burnt out and other days I catch myself doing things that I find funny & ridiculous e.g. the other night, I started cooking at midnight after arriving home from the Xmas party at work while doing vocal exercises because a recording session got re-scheduled last minute the next day and got booked for a show..all of this while I was yawning and dying to go to be after a 9-hr work day and the Xmas party.
Here you have it..sigh here..okkayy, on my way to the gym now..breathe in, breathe out..Stay tuned for a big surprise I’m sharing later on today…
Thank YOU for understanding,
I'm #2 on the ReverbNation Pop charts for Canada and # 1 for Montreal http://t.co/gks0ak9c

I was on my way to a client meeting yesterday pm when I ran into this lady I know from the gym. She stopped me and thanked me for the show I had last Thursday. As I was thanking her back I saw tears in her eyes. I said: 'r u ok?'; and then she opened up... it had always been her dream to become a singer/performer but for whatever reason she stopped pursuing it. She told me she is now married and has 2 adorable kids and that she loves her family so much and that their business is going well.
I said 'So..everything is fine then. Family is so important; you're a lucky girl to have a healthy & tight family'. She replied 'Yes, I am..my family knows about my 'regret' and they're so supportive. But it's inspiring people like you that with that perseverance make people like me re-think their path..'
By then, it was the other person in the conversation who had tears in her eyes …

Last but not least here's my favorite quote from one of my friends (had to share it..): '..I cheated on my fears, broke up with my doubts, got engaged to my faith & in 2012 I’m marrying my dreams. Happy new year everyone may the smile never leave your beautiful faces...'
