Update #1 – Delay, Dublin, and Belfast

Hello : )

I’ve been a bit delayed here with Sip & Sing as I’ve been attempting to resolve vocal conflicts. With some medical attention and procedures, we’re slowly discovering what has caused vocal loss and pain. All should heal in due time.

I’m presently headed to Dublin for a few days where I’ll perform some tunes (to my best abilities). Later, I’m headed to Northern Ireland, primarily Belfast, to participate in a songwriting/storytelling workshop. I don’t know how I became this lucky but, I’m not going to pry – just taking it all in. Hopefully I’ll be able to post a bit of the Dublin gig here!

Thanks for stopping by.

#5 “The Act of Acting” (original)

“The Act of Acting”

Lyrics here temporarily. My sound equipment isn’t all that wonderful so, if the lyrics are a struggle to comprehend, I encourage you to read along : ).

“The Act of Acting”
Cover up that mark
they don’t wanna see who youreally are.
Start to get that mind
used to these little white lies
they make your spotlight.

Getting real damn good
at doing what she told.
Booking all the roles,
forgetting her own.

Kiss kiss smile wide
Shake their hands
Play up the “shy”
Click flash
Straighten that back
Tell them you’re happy
Tell you’ve been

Falling in love with movie stars
Walking the red in your pretty dress
Finding the light amidst the dark
Living the dream, following your heart.

Turning 25
If you didn’t know, then I guess you didn’t read the headlines.
Two time nominee tonight she’s go the world thinking:
Winning would make that princess a queen

If she were to rule
what would be left to do?
She’s so oh so close to the top
but there’s only below, not beyond.
Why she’s done what she’s done, she’s forgot.

Kiss kiss smile wide
Shake their hands
Play up the “shy”
Click flash
Straighten that back
Tell them you’re happy
Tell you’ve been

Falling in love with movie stars
Walking the red in your pretty dress
Finding the light amidst the dark
Living the dream, following your heart

following, following, following your heart.

No No where to go
Startin’ to spin
Feelin’ the fall
Wanting the world to know
she’s losing sight,
don’t know truths from lies.
About to break,
she needs to say…

I’ve been falling in love with movie stars..
I’ve been falling in love with movie stars..
No, no, no…
I’ve been taken to bed by movie men
speaking my lines forgetting whats mine
playing my part so pretty and well
Living my dream
Learning my hell

#4 “Roots” (original) – LIVE at The Bergmuehle Stadtflucht

My first international gig!
Here’s “Roots” during a laid-back performance at The Bergmuehle Stadtflucht, an exclusive resort right outside of Vienna, Austria. It was a wonderfully laid-back gig. I was playing for folks as they lounged in the sun and indulged in some delicious, organic food. Truly, it was perfect for my first out-of-the-USA show. Also, I made 150E in donations and was invited back! So, I’d say it was a success!
