Dear friends, readers, and listeners.
It feels great to write to you all again.
The past few months were flooded with emotions - we've recorded our debut EP in a professional recording studio.Until then we've worked, recorded, argued and had some laughs at Boris home made studio. At the new, professional, well designed and very appreciated recording studio I had no laughs at all! Actually it was a very hard experience for me. First of all I had to sing in a closed room when a big window separates me from Boris, Jacob and Avner.
Jacob is a well known sound engineer and producer (who owns the studio we recorded at) in Israel and Avner is a well known musician, keyboard player and producer. They both have so much experience and there comes little me, who has no music degree or education, little me who works only with her voice and emotions, little me who forgot how big she really is and lost her self confidence...
Its impossible to sing well when you feel small and unseen. Singing is all about being!
At the first vocal recording sessions, god, could I sing worse then that!? All of my body was held in a tight way I was so stressed and they were so apathetic, just thinking about it makes me wanna cry, thats how hard it was... I actually felt like an animal in a cage, Dramatic ha?
From session to session in which I've sang one song each time for about 30 times I've got better, but never felt absolutely comfortable in there. I must admit that it had something to do with being the only woman in a room with 3 male musicians, and that takes me to another thing that I've met lately - my femininity.
I've learned, even through working at the studio, that my strength is in the women that I am.
I've learned to acknowledge and use my feminine energies and abilities.
I'm still learning to use my power, to believe in it and to give myself the room and the space that I need.
I have so much more to learn.
So, on the 25th of August 2010 the EP was ready. Now we are waiting for the art work from our graphic designer for the CD cover, and mostly we are exited about were will our music take us...
We've uploaded the final versions of the songs+ a new one which called "Start Over". Enjoy!
I must say it again - it feels great to write to you all again!
