SOUND UP????????????Happy Belated Halloween, Tarts n’ Vickers! SWIPE 2 see what the blue full moon brings.✨I’ve always felt like a bit of a freak & outsider in society, so this wasn’t much of a stretch for me. ;) Ever fascinated by Tim Burton’s delightful elixir of fantastical surrealism & whimsical morbidity... thus, here I am in an earnest attempt as Beloved Lydia from Beetlejuice.????????Alas I couldn’t procure the fringe bangs, lace veil, & flying special-effects at the last minute... ah well! Hope u all had a wickedly fun weekend. X????

SOUND UP????????????More behind-the-scenes footage in studio: recording my new single Seven Years, dropping January 2021.????Gotta love Tommy Byrnes belting at the top there, eh? I was trying to get the perfect vocal-take for this line in the 2nd Chorus: ‘We’re Invincible Forever’. As a vocalist, I’ve always thought that the most dynamically-effective way to approach a ballad is to sing the 1st chorus straight, without altering the original phrasing— so by the time that 2nd chorus rolls around, the song should build in emotional intensity— which lends itself to stretching & playing with the phrasing for a more dramatic impact... otherwise known as ‘melisma’. Make sense? It’s all about experimenting 2 see what flows organically, then singing it over & over again til there’s nothing left to be improved upon. At least, that’s how I do it.????Stay tuned here for music updates, clips, musings... thank u guys for the beautiful love + support. I see you.????

SOUND UP????????????Before I share a sneak preview of the final track, here’s some behind-the-scenes raw footage in studio.????I wanted to give u guys a peak into the process of recording, and what it takes to bring a song to fruition. There’s a myriad of ingredients to add to the mix if you’re gonna get it just right.????In case you’re wondering who the voice is on the other side of the glass? That’s my good friend, Tommy Byrnes... you might’ve seen him not too long ago, rocking it monthly at The Garden with Pop! This here’s a snippet of yours truly— I’m singing the layered harmony parts for the ‘sha la las’ in the chorus. I HATE Auto-Tune, so I’m always aiming to get the take as perfectly pitched as possible 2 avoid having my vocal tone altered in the mix. I was recording a capella here— without production added, cuz it’s 100X easier to hear your own pitch that way. All those instrumental bits get properly placed & leveled into the polished record after the vocal takes are done.????Stay tuned for more clips to come, and soon: The First Teaser of my upcoming single... SEVEN YEARS.????X

????Stay Tuned For New Music & Lyrics! In the meantime, I’m revisiting this here ramble I wrote at sea...⚓️ —‘she dresses in the old captain’s style / n’ rides the Staten Island Ferry / without knowing where it’s going, how long she’ll bide her time, or why / she just likes how the distant blue lights beckon promises across the Hudson River / she wishes on them like a star; yearning for skylines brighter n’ bigger / and though they haven’t as of yet quite set sail or delivered / she still smiles upon the windswept bow at dusk / grasping for the muddled, salted waters / arms outstretched, curling over the edge, watching the furious foam fall into itself with steady motion; like a tireless, whirring wheel / she pours herself into the all-knowing blanket of marine / likening the sea to some vast, godly prophet / who might bring her closer to the port that holds those pulsating blue lights / she swore they understood her / lonesome n’ restless, beaming against a mass of nothingness / plunging madly into the cobalt sound’— COBALT SOUND ????By Me???????? pics by @jillrappaport_ ????
