     I have been going to Karaoke nights at the Sechelt, B.C. Legion for several months now, and I have to say, it is always a really fun night out.  Every week that I go, I am amazed at how friendly and supportive everyone is, regardless of what style of music you sing. If someone sings a song that people like, the dancefloor gets packed.  Since singing and dancing are two of my favourite things to do, I always look forward to my Karaoke nights.

      Recently, it was announced that they were going to have a ” Sunshine Coast Karaoke Idol ” Contest at the Legion.  I have been to enough Karaoke nights there to know that there are some extremely talented singers around, so I didn’t think I would try out.  I also don’t really like competition, or being judged in public, so was definitely shying away from the prospect of auditioning for the Contest.  They held 3 weeks of auditions – the first week slipped by, then the second, and I still didn’t go.  I was worried that the “good ” feeling we all had on our Karaoke nights, that warm, encouraging feeling, may disappear in a competitive setting.  I didn’t want things to change.  I probably had at least 10 reasons why I shouldn’t audition. ( in my own mind )

     I thought about it long and hard, about how much I love to sing. I have been up here on the Sunshine Coast for just over 2 years now, and haven’t really ” put myself out there ” musically, yet.  It was so easy in Vancouver – I had lots of contacts there, knew a lot of musicians etc, and there were always places to play.  Being still fairly new to the Coast, and quite shy, I hadn’t really talked to very many people about my singing.  I decided that it was time to at least try and get myself heard a little bit.  I had to start somewhere, and what better place than a friendly, familiar environment?

     So, on the third week of auditions, I gave it a shot.  I made it in, and at the end of May, our Contest began.  I met some wonderful ladies along the way – all of whom clearly love to sing.  It was so nice to get to know them, and see the joy in their eyes, and the beautiful smiles on their faces, as they did what they love best.  There is nothing quite like watching someone doing what they are truly passionate about – it is an amazing sight to behold. 

     The weeks went by, we sang different genres each week ( which challenged us, and helped us grow as vocalists ) and we all helped each other get through our nerves, which were aplenty throughout the Contest.  This past Friday, June 11th, it was down to 3 of us, and we had the Finale.

I would like to thank everyone involved with the contest for making it so much fun for all of us.  It was great experience for us in front of an audience, and it helped us try new genres we may not have otherwise attempted.  A lot of hard work and preparation went into getting things running smoothly, and everyone learned a lot along the way.  Richard Lachance deserves a special ” Thankyou ” for running the show, and encouraging us all to try out – nobody worked as hard as he did at making this thing happen.  It is because of him that we’ve had so many fun nights out at Karaoke over the months gone by.

We had great Judges ( see above photo ) who all had good advice to give us, and we all appreciated their honesty.  We even had a couple of last minute judges have to step in on occasion to fill in, and they did a wonderful job, as well.  There were several other people involved with the event, helping things go as planned, videoing for us, and all the way through, giving us encouragement.
The next picture is the 3 of us anxiously awaiting the results of the voting.

Thankyou to all of our friends, families, co-workers, and even complete strangers that came out and supported us with their clapping, cheering, and votes.  It really meant a lot to us to have so much love and support from all of you.  As I mentioned earlier, we were all quite nervous, so having so much positive energy around helped us a lot !!!

I would like to thank all the Contestants as well, for sharing their talents with us, and being so much fun.  It never felt like a competition ( thank goodness ) as everyone was there for the same reason – to have fun, and do what they loved to do.  We all cheered for each other, and felt the ups and downs as each of us had good or bad nights over the last few weeks.  I am so glad to have met all of you ladies – not only are you very talented, but you are very sweet, kind people, as well, and I hope we will stay in touch.
A big thanks to the fabulous Community – spirited photographer ( and so much more ) Duane Burnett, who showed up at the Finale to take some pictures of us on our big night.  You can always count on Duane to be there for any special event on The Sunshine Coast.  You can see some more of the Finale pictures here.
All in all, competing in this contest was a really great experience for me.  I overcame some fears, forced myself to do things I was uncomfortable with, and eventually, even got over my nerves. ( even if that only happened on the very last night. ) Most importantly, I met some wonderful people along the way, whom I hope to sing with again some day very soon.
Thanks again so much to everyone for supporting us in our love of singing !!!

Rehearsing My Next Song

     As I mentioned in my last Blog post, my producer Jarome Matthew has been away for a couple of months, travelling, and working with some other Pro Soul Artists.  Jarome always keeps in touch with me while he is away, letting me know what’s going on, and when he’ll be back in Vancouver.  Well, he’s home now, and we’re anxious to get me back in the Studio to record my next 80’s – inspired song.

     This next track we’re working on is a dance track, and I’m hoping we’ll get some airplay in some of my favourite Vancouver Clubs eventually.  The song was written by the incredibly talented singer/songwriter Darryl Kromm ( of Canadian Band Strange Advance ) and it will be our second time working with him on this 80’s project.  Darryl was kind enough to do backup vocals for me on my cover of Human League’s ” ( Keep Feeling ) Fascination ” a while back, and now he is allowing us to use one of his original songs that the public has never heard. We are thrilled ( and extremely grateful ) to be working with Darryl again, and very excited to have such amazing material to work with.

     Now that Jarome and his lovely wife Felisha are back from their travels, it’s just a matter of setting up a time that works with both our busy schedules  – I can’t wait to record this very cool song !  I will continue to rehearse it for the next little while, but am sure we’ll be in the Studio with it before Summer.  I’ll keep you posted.

iTunes and CD Baby

Posted by Heather

          When people find out that I sing, they often ask me, ” Where can I get you music ? “.  Many people prefer to download their songs now, so everything I’ve recorded so far ( both the Jazz stuff, and the 80’s tunes ) can easily be found on iTunes. 

          If you would rather have an actual CD to play, and if you like Big Band/Swing/Lounge Music from the 1920’s – 1950’s, then CD Baby is where you can order my CD called “I’m Beginning To See The Light “.  There are not many copies left, so if you’ve been thinking about getting a copy of my very first CD, then the time is right …

           I am so grateful to all of you that have already purchased my CD, and/or downloaded some of my songs.  It really means a lot to me to have your support, and your feedback is always appreciated, as well.  Some people seem to like the older music best, while others dig the 80’s songs.  It is always great to hear what you like most, and why.  Please don’t hesitate to share your thoughts on my music – I’d love to hear from you !

          Right now, I am rehearsing a new 80’s style song, and will likely be recording it in the Spring, now that my Producer Jarome Matthew  is finally home from a busy trip away, working with various other Pro-Soul  Artists.  I am looking forward to getting back into the Studio and recording, as well as hearing all about Jarome’s trip, and all the amazing music he produced while travelling. 

          My last two 80’s songs were cover tunes, but the one we’re working on right now has never been heard by the general public, so we are very excited about it.  We’ll keep you posted …

All We Have Are Moments

Posted by Heather

     I was talking to a friend of mine a few years ago ( who happens to be a very wise woman ) about the fact that I was tired of life being such a struggle, full of disappointments, and basically just so difficult, at times.    I had recently lost several good friends  – most in their 40’s – to various things, such as heart attacks, and cancer.  A close relative had a stroke, and a couple others were ill, as well.  I was unhappy with the job I was at, and tired of the routine – working hard to try and pay the bills, and having little time or energy left over for much else.

     I told her that I didn’t feel very hopeful at the time, since I was surrounded by so many sad things.  I felt as though I couldn’t cry any more, and it just didn’t feel like there was much to look forward to.

     Earlier that day, as I was walking to her place to visit her, the sun was shining on my face, and it made me feel kind of giddy. ( I love the feeling of the warm sun on my skin – it always makes me feel good. )  When I told her that, she looked at me seriously, and said ” All we have are moments “, and I didn’t quite “get” what she meant, at first.  She was referring to the fact that life is not one long series of wonderful events without anything negative – that is not reality.  Life is hard – sometimes extremely difficult – but real joy comes from recognizing those ” moments ” that make us smile, make us feel good, make us laugh, whatever.

     We need to focus on those moments – even if they are rare, and brief – instead of all the other sad, disappointing , unfulfilling things in our lives.

     I remember telling her at the time that I only had those kinds of moments maybe 3 or 4 times a year, and she thought that was sad, if it were true.  She pointed out that the way the sun on my face made me feel was one, the way I felt when I was on a dancefloor, ( so free ) the feeling I got when a friend hugged me … and it started to sink in.

     It has been several years since that conversation, and many things have happened and changed in my life since then – both good, and bad – but I have come a long way in terms of how I view life.  Yes, life is still difficult, and things certainly don’t always turn out the way you think/hope they will, but that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy it.  I am much better at recognizing the ” little things ” that often go unnoticed, or get taken for granted – the things that genuinely bring a smile to my face, or make me feel good.

     For me, it can be a breathtaking view from a cliff overlooking the water, after a long hike, or the feeling of a friend’s arms around me whom I haven’t seen in months.  It is anything that brings me joy, warms me, makes me smile for real – simple things, unplanned things.

     Life may not be everything we want it to be all of the time, but if we are open to it, pretty much every day has at least one ” moment ” worth noting.  Those are the times I now focus on, and enjoy – and it helps get me through the rest.

Living Your Dreams

In career, life, music
5Mar 10

     I have wanted to write a blog post about this topic for a while now, but wasn’t quite sure where to start.  I knew how I felt on the subject, but wasn’t sure how people may react to my point of view.  You see, I am not o.k. with an ” ordinary life “.  Being ” content ” would never be enough for me, nor would doing things the way everyone else does. That would just be boring.  I have never been a ” sheep ” that follows the crowd – I prefer to have my own thoughts.   I really believe that there must be more to life than the whole work-eat-sleep routine I have often referred to in my posts.  Existing is what many do – I would like to ” live “, and fully experience life, and all the joys it can bring.  Finding the key to doing that may be the tricky part …

     As I was reading the little local paper this morning, I glanced at my Horoscope, and was struck by what I read : ” For some people, living their dreams is not simply a nice idea, it is a duty.  You may be one such person. ”  Now, whether you believe in horoscopes or not, this expressed precisely how I feel.  It went on to talk about the fact that I should stop worrying about the ” how and why “, and that I should take some risks.  ( something I rarely do )  It also said ” as ready as you are to embark on an adventure, a few key things must change . ”

     This all made total sense to me.  I absolutely feel that life is too short and precious to waste doing things that bring you no joy.  Most of us, at some time in our lives, have had jobs that we go to just for the paycheque, just to try and pay the bills.  We may have absolutely no interest in our job, have no desire to go there, but we dutifully go, because ” that’s what everyone does “.  We tell ourselves, ” It’s not forever “, ” it’s a means to an end ” or a ” stepping stone “, but we all know those months turn into years, and next thing we know, we’ll be retiring, and wondering why we never tried anything that really interested us, or made us happy. Work is just one example of how we sell ourselves short in life, but you get my point.

     In the past 5 years, I have thought of the things I most wanted to do, ( make a CD, and meet my childhood crush ) and have gone out and made them happen.  It’s not always easy, and things don’t always turn out quite as you expect, but even having accomplished those 2 small things ( significant to me, though ) I now have proof that dreams can come true.   We all have things we would love to do, given the opportunity – often this would require a lot of money, and/or free time – so it rarely becomes reality.   For example, I would love nothing more than to be able to work on my music every day, to have the free time to dedicate to it, that is necessary to get anywhere.  I fantasize about how wonderful it would feel to not have to go to work every day to try and pay the mortgage, or worry about bills all the time. 

     I often wonder how the ” lucky ones ” feel – the people that are already doing something they truly love and are passionate about, and either have someone financially backing or supporting them ( so they don’t have to drain their time and energy with a ” day job ” ) or they’re already making a living doing what brings them joy.  I wonder if those rare few people really realize how fortunate they are, and that they are by far the exception to the rule.  Obviously, there are those that are handed things, but I think most people that are living their lives doing what they really want to have worked very hard to make it happen.  These people were not o.k. being ” content” , either – they wanted more, and after putting their minds to it, and being willing to put in the work, time, effort and dedication needed, made things happen for themselves.  They did not just sit around wishing for a better life – they did something about it.

     It always makes me sad when I see people who look like they are weary of life.  ( I have seen that in the mirror before – I certainly don’t pretend to be happy all the time )  I wonder what those people hoped for during their lifetime.  Were there exotic destinations they’d hoped to visit one day, did they want to be an Actor, but their parents discouraged them ?  I just feel that most people, for whatever reasons, don’t allow themselves to do the things that would make them happy.  We are our own worst enemies, for the most part.  We limit ourselves, put invisible ” roadblocks ” in our own paths.  It’s easy to say ” Life has dealt me a bad hand ” or whatever, and just not bother trying based on that, but everyone deserves better than that.  It is also easy to think others are better off than us, financially, socially, whatever, but until you live their lives, you don’t really know – it is just your perception of them.  Everybody has struggles, everyone has pain – nobody has a ” perfect life “, despite appearances.

     There are a lot of things in my own life that need to change before I will feel I have truly done all I can to realize all of my own goals/dreams.  I am working on it, but am fully aware that I have a long way to go.  Perhaps not every goal will be reached, and that’s alright, as long as I at least care about myself enough to try.  It’s time to stop with the excuses/reasons why I can’t /shouldn’t do things, it’s time to stop limiting myself, or feeling I am not worthy of real happiness.  This is not just about me – most people I know are not ” living ” their lives either, they are caught in a rut, a routine, what they feel is ” normal “, what we are “expected” to do.  I say that’s not good enough.  We were not given the gift of life so that we would be unhappy, exhausted, and complain all the time.  There has to be more to it, and it’s up to us to actually do something about it. 

     I plan on continuing to set goals for myself, and am hopeful that I may reach some more of them.  I don’t want to waste any more precious time.

     What would you really love to do?  What are you interested in, and without making any excuses, why aren’t you going after it with every fibre of your being ?  Living our dreams is not simply a nice idea – it is our duty, and it is the best gift we can ever give ourselves.  No regrets – no ” what if’s ” – no wondering – just be happy.  If we don’t try, we may never know …

Kevin Clark Photography

     Since I started doing some singing and acting a few years back, there have been several times when I have either had to get professional headshots done, or full-on photoshoots.  I, like most people, do not particularly like having my picture taken.  We all have certain features we don’t mind about ourselves, and we all have things we’d sooner not see too closely, in the wrong light, or at a bad angle.

     Personally, I think about 95% of pictures I have seen of myself are not very good.  I know we are all most critical of ourselves, but you have to admit, we’ve all seen not-so-flattering pics of pretty much everyone we know –  it happens.  I guess I always assumed that if you paid good money to a professional photographer, you would end up looking good, somehow.  Unfortunately, this is not always the case.

     I have been to quite a few Vancouver photographers, and I have to say that the only one who truly ” captured my essence ” ( in my opinion ) was the magnificent Kevin Clark.  I first met Kevin and his wife in 2005, when we did promotional shots, as well as the cover shot for my CD, “I’m Beginning To See The Light “.  They were a class act from the moment we walked in there.  His wife ( also a Makeup Artist ) totally respected the fact that I have my own ” look “, and that I’d pretty much done my own makeup before arriving.  She did a bit of ” tweaking ” to prepare me for the camera, but she let me look like me, which made me totally relaxed.

     She and Kevin were both super nice, great people, and I liked them both instantly.  The photoshoot was definitely one of the most fun things I have ever done – it was my 1st real photoshoot, and I’ll never forget it.  It was every little girl’s fantasy – to feel like a princess for a few hours – to look in the mirror and not mind what you see.  Anyone who knows me well knows that I am naturally a very shy person, but during that session, I felt anything but shy.  It was nice for once to not feel self-conscious, to just relax, and let the real me shine through.  Kevin totally brought that out of me.

     I would highly recommend Kevin Clark to anyone who is looking for good quality promo/headshots in the Vancouver area.  To this day, I have never seen any pictures of myself that have been so “true” to what I look like, as his were.

     When my 1920’s – 1950’s Big Band/Swing/Lounge CD ” I’m Beginning To See The Light ” came out in 2005, I knew it was going to be difficult to get much promotion, since nobody knew who I was.  I didn’t have any famous person endorsing me, or any financial backing of any kind – I paid for everything myself, and people basically heard about me by word of mouth.  Friends, family and co-workers were wonderful – they came to my CD Release Party, bought CD’s either there, online at CD Baby, or from me directly, and they told their friends and families about me.

     My dream was just that people would like my CD, and that perhaps, with some luck, I would ” break even ” financially.  Well, I did get a lot of positive feedback  regarding the CD, and that made me very happy.  It is always great to hear that people like something you have done – it makes you feel that maybe you were right to believe in yourself for once,  to take a chance , and do something that is important to you, something you truly are passionate about.  Sadly, when virtually no one knows who you are, for the most part, nobody really cares to give you a chance, in ” the Industry. ”  I never even came anywhere close to ” breaking even ” in terms of the money I had to spend to make the CD.

     I remember my Dad being quite upset that the local Vancouver Radio Stations weren’t putting my songs into rotation.  He asked me about the whole ” Canadian Content ” thing on the radio stations, and he felt it was ridiculous that I couldn’t get anyone in my own city to care enough to play my CD.  It seemed as though if you weren’t either rich or famous, you would never be given a chance.  ( When you think about that, how can an “unknown” artist ever become known, if no one is willing to give them some exposure ? )

     On June 24th, 2005, I received an e-mail from a Radio Show Host in Buenos Aires, Argentina.  His name was José Luis Ajzenmesser, and he told me he had a radio show entitled ” La Guagua “, and at that time, it had been on the air for about 14 years, primarily playing Jazz.  He said he had come across some of my song clips online, and he really liked what he had heard.  He then asked if I would mind sending him a CD, so that he might play some of my songs on his show in future.  I had no idea who this man was, and I will admit, at first, I wasn’t sure about it all.  I am not in the habit of mailing things to complete strangers, and I didn’t know anything about him.

     After exchanging several more e-mails, and finding out that he truly did host a radio show, and genuinely liked my music, I decided to mail him a CD.  I thought perhaps he would listen to it, and maybe play one of my songs on his show some time, at best.  Well, after he received my CD and listened to the entire thing, he e-mailed me back, and told me how much he loved it.  Obviously, that made me feel good, since he hosted a Jazz  Show on the radio.  I thought it was very kind of him, and I didn’t think much more would come of it.

     I got yet another e-mail, telling me that he was going to dedicate half an hour of one of his shows to my CD, on Sept. 1st, 2005.  I could not believe it.  A complete stranger had heard bits of my songs online, and liked them so much that they were willing to play my songs for half an hour straight.  This was not in my city, or even my Country, but in Argentina.  I was completely blown away.  José was true to his word – he talked about me on his show, played 6 of my songs, and an online friend from Buenos Aires translated for a few of us while the show was on, so we’d know what he was saying about me.  That was one of the most amazing, kind things anyone has ever done for me.  He even played ” You Belong To Me ” ( my personal favourite ) twice, because he said he always loved that song since he was younger, and he enjoyed my version so much.

     I will never forget that wonderful man for dedicating that half hour of his show to me, and my CD.  It’s nice to know that somewhere in the world, a complete stranger was willing to take a chance on an ” unknown artist “, and play my music for his listeners. 

     I have to wonder if things will ever change here, though… why won’t radio stations support more local artists, and give them a chance to be heard ? It just seems wrong to get more support from a stranger than in your own city …. any thoughts ?

Happy New Year !

Posted by Heather
In career, events, music
1Jan 10

     I would like to start the New Year off by wishing all of you a very happy, healthy, and prosperous 2010 !  2009 was, by many accounts, a very difficult year for most of us, with the bad economy and all.  It has been a struggle just to get by, to try and keep food on the table and a roof over our heads. Many people had their hours cut back, or lost their jobs entirely. It was a tough year – full of struggles, dampened hopes, and many tears.

     Somehow, we made it through, and although we may be stronger for it, it still wasn’t pleasant.  I, for one, am glad to see the end of 2009, as it was definitely not one of the better years in my life, or for many people I know.

     I recently made a comment on Facebook about how I look forward to the ” feeling ” ( whether that be perceived or real ) of a ” clean slate ” when a new year approaches.  It really doesn’t matter if it is simply how we view it, or if it is real – what matters is what we do with it.  Personally, I think of it as having hope that things will improve, that we will be given a ” fresh start “, that we have another chance to make good choices – choices that will improve our lives, and hopefully, the lives of others.

     I am not one to make New Year’s Resolutions per se, and broadcast them to anyone who will listen, but today, I have already written down a list of goals for myself for this year.  Telling people the things you are ” going to do ” is great, and it is a positive thing to actually speak the words and ” put it out there “, but the older I get, the more I realize I’d rather “do” than just “say”.  It is very easy to say things, but much harder to actually put in the time and effort, and make them happen.  The way I see it, I have my personal list, and as I accomplish items on that list, I will share them with family and friends.  I have nothing to prove to anyone – my list is simply for me, and the people that care about me will be happy when I put my hopes into action….

     I hope that all of you have hopes, dreams, or goals that you want to realize this year – things that you enjoy but have perhaps put off, things that you don’t feel are important enough, whatever the case may be.  If there is some thing you love to do, or would love to try ( and it isn’t hurting anyone else ) – why not let this be the year you actually do it, or try it?  I know I say this all the time, but life really is too short to only dream/wish/hope/imagine, and not DO something to make yourself happy.  It is very easy to blame others, or your financial situation, or your work environment, ( or any number of things ) or find reasons why you shouldn’t or ” can’t ” do things for yourself – believe me, I know – but ultimately, all excuses or fears aside, nobody else can make us happy.  All we have to do is love ourselves enough to make the things we hope for become our reality.  If you feel you can’t do it on your own, friends and family always have words of encouragement for you to follow your dreams, and that will get you through even the darkest of times.

     On that note, I would, once again, like to thank everyone who has supported me during this hard year – knowing you believe in me, and my music, gives me great strength.  Whether it be kind words of encouragement, compliments on things I have accomplished, buying my CD or downloading a song, or most importantly – being there with a hug when I need it most – your support has helped me enormously. Your continued faith in me is truly what keeps me going.

     All the best to you, and your families, for a fabulous 2010 !

Another Song On iTunes !!!

14Oct 09

     I recorded ” I Want To Know What Love Is ” over a year ago, and have been patiently waiting for things to fall into place so that we could finally get it up on iTunes.   It has been a long road, but we have achieved partial success.  The reason I say partial, is that due to licensing issues (  long story ) we were able to get it up pretty much everywhere, except in the U.S.A.  This is disappointing, but hopefully, that will change one day, with any luck.

     So for now, many of you can find the song here.

     Thankyou all for your patience, and for all the great feedback.  I really love hearing from you !



 

 

I’m very pleased to let you know that My Jazz CD “Beginning To See The Light” is now available digitally!
Beginning To See The Light CD Cover

Giving new life to old music has always been fascinating and means a lot to me. My first professional release was Jazz instead of pop as I was greatly influenced by my friend Michael Buble as well as the vocal jazz performances in Vancouver. I blogged more about that here.
Music by Dean Martin, Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, and the ‘Crooners’ reminds me of wonderful music that brings me where I am today in the music world. I grew up listening to meaningful music and lyrics from Jo Stafford, Peggy Lee, and Judy Garland. What I liked the most about this kind of music was the purity in their vocals and meaningful lyrics. My passion for music led me to explore and study flute, piano, singing and acting.

Through my album of jazz classics ‘Beginning To See The Light’ I have rediscovered my passion for 80’s pop and disco music, and realized that despite my love for Jazz, that is my true calling.
I am touched to hear that my album has a nostalgic touch and has brought back fond memories of high school days to many of my listeners. Working hard and hearing that my work has touched someone’s life with sweet memories brings me the satisfaction and confidence to create more such music.

Talking about ‘Beginning To See The Light’, I am thrilled with the wonderful reviews from my international listeners over the years. Friends and fans have recognized my work on this CD… One of my fans wrote she likes ‘Beginning To See The Light’ so much that she listens to this CD whenever she is home. The first song on the album has received great reviews. We worked very hard and spent a great deal to put this album together in the best way possible and it is so delightful to hear from listeners that “the songs have been beautifully arranged to make my voice shine”. Hearing it being called a “playful yet sophisticated arrangement” was such a motivation to make this album available in more than just CD format, as individual songs as well through iTunes, Napster, Rhapsody, eMusic, Amazon MP3, Groupietunes for mobile ringtones, and more, linked on my music page. It’s also available in regular CD format on CD Baby.

I am thankful to all my friends and listeners for promoting my work mostly through word of mouth. I believe it is a great strength to have such wonderful people like you who ensure that I am able to bring out the best in my work and also that more people get to know my music.
