Maybe it’s time to write down my thoughts one more time. A lot has changed since I last posted…other things have remained the same.
I’ve gone back to teaching kids to play guitar and I really enjoy it. Imagine that. I’m also teaching English and playing with my bands. Oh, and I thought I’d take up my photography again. Everything just kind of happened really fast, some with very little planning, others with very hard work. Now everything’s turned into constant hard work and the need to improve is always echoing in my head!
So? Well, I realized I have quite a few talents to work with, and I don’t necessarily have to follow the “normal” routine our parents plan out for us ahead of time. Things are going ok.
I’ve gotten involved with a few music projects that I’m really excited about. Last night I performed with a singer I really admire, Natalie Bergamo, and her amazing team of dancers. I have a acoustic duo I can jam with around town and my true love, my band, Hey Ladies.
Hopefully I’ll check back soon with some more news. I’m excited to post videos, as well as some of my photography work!
Meanwhile, feel free to check out my facebook fanpage, Mia Kay Music ;)
I’m getting ready for my first “selfish” photoshoot, without a band involved. I can’t wait to have some new promo pics and get things going. I’m finishing my acoustic cover set and thinking about doing some of my own songwriting pretty soon. I’ll keep you posted. I know it sounds like just dreams, but since I have to start somewhere, I thought some new pics were the way to go.
Earlier this month I shot with a new electronic music project and I also can’t wait to see how that turned out, but most importantly, how the show will turn out!
Happy and excited to be able to share all this REALLY SOON with the world.
I finally made my first “dollar” with an acoustic set. I’m currently putting together a longer setlist so I can start selling the show. It wasn’t easy and it wasn’t hard, but I see the places I need improvement and I brought some friends along to give me their feedback. Everyone really liked it and I’m ready to work!
Last year I got to shoot this amazing singer during her album release party. She’s not only the mind behind the beautiful music of Dressing Rock, but she’s the drummer for my girl-band - and a heck of a good one. In “Black Brick Road”, the talented Lucy Campos dresses up well known classic rock songs and adds a pinch of bossa, country, jazz and pop: the whole idea behind this acoustic project. You don’t want to miss her versions of songs such as Smoke on the water, Painkiller and Changes. Released by Wet Music, the album also features “Out tonight”, written by Lucy.
Among the difficulties and worries of our everyday lives, there’s one thing that will remain certain: music. There aren’t enough words to describe my love for a cheesy hard rock song and my Gibson guitars.
