The tale of a girl who was afraid to dream

Once upon a time, there lived a girl who was afraid to dream. From an early age, she was mesmerised by the sounds of a piano. The sight of the black and white keys and the blending of the melodies made her heart beat faster. Her mother could not buy her a piano, and anyway,…

Food for soul

In the past, when I was in the middle of some massive task or project, I did not allow myself to idly strum the guitar and spend time recording songs for I wanted to keep the focus and get over that task faster. Now, in the middle of urgent renovations and moving home, I say…

Pete The Pebble

Recently I opened the doors of my studio to young talents – two 10-year-old boys were recording their legendary song “Pete The Pebble.” This song has an interesting story behind it. The founder of the duo, Angus, felt bored during quarantine times when all the schools were closed. He was wandering along the empty streets…

Spring is here!

I know spring is here when I am walking along a narrow path in my little town, my mind is sunk in a thousand thoughts that seizing my attention to surroundings, and then a subtle wisp of sweet scent seeps through the thicket of my busy mind and gently pulls me out of my oblivion.…

Confession

Confession Painting: John Nieman I MADE A MISTAKE. It happened 2 years ago when I set a goal to release my next album “properly” according to the music industry standards. And there’s nothing wrong with that except I made a promise to myself that I won’t record and release another album until I get myself educated…

Self-Isolation

We’ve been in a self-isolation mode for the last three weeks.  Right now I am actually enjoying our self-isolation period.  This might sound strange but I feel more connected to the outside world than ever. The reason? I had to adjust and start using Skype, Whatsup, Zoom and similar apps – contacting friends and family more often. I even introduced…

Happy rebel

I’ve been ticking off lots of boxes, being busy. I could be proud of myself for being so productive. Instead, I felt void spreading inside me. It was time to stop and review. This morning while everyone was asleep, I had a date with Me, a one-on-one meeting. We climbed high to see the big…

Songwriting Challenge: The Warrior 🏹

It’s been two weeks of my Singing Songwriting Challenge. Well… It’s been a CHALLENGE. It’s been tough. The challenge was not in the singing or songwriting itself, but in the BATTLE against all the odds and different commitments that kept me away from what I love and supposed to be doing.  It takes time to…

Mountain

Let me share with you one of my proud moments of 2018. 😊 Last year I took a one month course to improve my songwriting in English. During this course, I was forced to sit down and focus on writing on a certain topic as an exercise without worrying what comes out. When I started spending time…

The Tree

Walking in the forest is truly rejuvenating. Blessed quietness interrupted only by a pleasant chirp and the sound of twigs crackling that comes from beneath my feet eases my mind. I stroke a large tree trunk with my palm feeling its rough texture. I open my arms wide and embrace the trunk sensing the warm…
