HELLO! — ITS ALL ABOUT YOU!
HELLO MY FIERTH-NICITY!!!!!
How happy I am that Spring has sprung & that NYC is buzzing the way it always does this time of year?! Another reason I adore living here! YAY!
My birthday is coming and this time of year always reminds me of that & of rebirth – where I am – were I want to be – what I am doing to get there… ahhhhh yes… the re-assessment of self…
Well this month I decided to write about just that! Its all about YOU! No matter who we are – or where else we’d like to focus…
the reality is its all about YOU! So here I am, completely getting into ME – its that time of year & that time – period.
I mean – don’t get me wrong! It’s all kinds of fun to get all wrapped up in people outside of ourselves, but not too far – because then where are you? What are YOU doing? …. so it is time to bring it back to YOU… & naturally, in this case, I would be bringing it back to…. moi…
Well – I am so so sooooo busy these days! 1st & foremost, I don’t now if you know this or not, but I manage the building I live in – so I am not only your little blond house droppin’ diva – but I am a “Super” – kinda fragalistic ex-pi-ala-do……cious… lol & I LOVE IT – because it is God/The Universe’s way of keeping me in check…
Some nights I go out on the town or to do a show & I get MADD LOVE & PROPS & I am treated like ROYALTY – I kid you NOT! (Which is always so mind-blowing & I love you all for such incredible treatment – THANK YOU!) People Love on me & take pics & love on me some more.. which I of course adore…. Which is all delicious but THEN, I go home & I have to take out the garbage!!!!! LOLOLOLOL! Its as if God were literally saying to me: “Girl, YOU ARE FIERCE…. but you ain’t THAT fierce – go take out the trash!!!!!” LOLOL – total ego check… WORK IT OUT UNIVERSE! hahahahaha!!!!!
Yes – we cannot – any single one of us – take ourselves too seriously… ever! (Not always easy to remember – but always true).
FOR FUN I DO SOMETIMES REFER TO MYSELF AS A “SUPER-DIVA” – I HAVE A CAPE & EVERYTHING ;o)~
So I say all of that to preface my everyday life – and go on to let you know the past few months have found me diligently renovating my 1st floor apartment to prepare for new tenants… this renovation is HUGE! WAY larger than expected – way more expensive & way longer than initially anticipated. I have come to learn that this is “normal” when you are doing such a job on a property… alas it is a true & remarkable education as well…. so I am up to my eyes in this renovation & very much looking forward to its conclusion so I can focus on other things… like MUSIC! YAY!
OK! SO! Since this piece is “ALL ABOUT YOU” that is what I am sharing this month – what is all about ME…
(You should do the same about you & your life – goals – dreams – plans – actions… it is so good for you!)
I have TONS of new projects coming up to tell about!
I know I already spoke of JFortino, up & coming soul artist that I collaborated with on 2 fabuous tracks. One a ballad duet called “My Love” (beautiful if I might say so myself) & “Fearless People”, which is a bangin’ dance anthem, from JFortino’s self titled album project featuring both Dawn Tallman (yes kids, the legendary diva xo) & myself (HLW)… its such an uplifting song – I am so excited for it to be officially released! Many of theFierth faces were kind enough to cameo in the video which I am sure will be covered on Fierth.com (***Brian MIlls, PHDJ, Eric Halliwell, among others plus fab kids from the NYC scene!) Mike Diamond was on set for his usual antics & journalistic delicacies… he is one of a kind as you know! It was fun fun fun & please keep your eyes peeled regarding the release – as it is sure to be an event all its own! xo *Check JFortino out @:http://jfortino.com/
I know I also mentioned the tracks I did with DaHool on my holiday excursion (remember Germany for 3 hours – lol) well the song “Don’t Hold Back”, which was one of the 3 we did that day – is due to be released on We Play Records! a European label – in upcoming months – I promise to let you know when…yay!
Next on the project list is “Pure Love” (no not a cover of 100%) I am THRILLED to announce that I am working on a brand new dance track with none other than Nick Harvey! He is sooooo amazing! He did one of my favorite remixes of “Drop A House” on the TommyBoy Records release last year… you already know his beats even if you don’t yet know his name YET – he has done many mixes played by Junior… and just released “Crave” withRyan W! *Another up & coming artist you should check out for sure! Find him at: http://www.ryanwmusic.com/
So “Pure Love” is in the works right now & will be coming at you this summer…
Nick & I are SO EXCITED! xoxoxoxoxo BTW – Nick will get your butt in motion so PLEASE check him out at: http://www.nickharveymusic.com
Right on the heels of that project is “I Get What I Want” – a fun fun fun pop confection meant to be a mantra – its silly but truly meant as a manifestation so that we can all get whatever it is that we want… not in a greedy way – but in a universal way… once again attracting & creating what we want… I am doing this with *Mimi Loves Music* (VJ & entertainer extraordinaire) – I am awaiting the track – once I have it I will announce the producer, who I am very excited to be working with!
I am also excited to announce that I am going to be singing live on the S.W.I.S.H. (Straight Women In Support of Homos) float at this years NYC Pride Parade!!!!! If you do not know about this fabulous organization FIND OUT HERE: http://swishpride.org/
Finally, I am in the process of putting together my dream band – with whom I will be recording my next album project & then touring… I am so excited about this because although I love all kinds of music – there simply is nothing like singing with live musicians… the band will also feature a DJ – this project is something that I am so completely and wholeheartedly looking forward to & I can’t wait to share this side of my musical flavor with you all… its mostly a soul vibe but with many various elements mixed in… every member has amazing things to bring to the table that the sky is limitless – I”m excited for the ride!!!!!
So as I march back up to the renovation (gotta get back to work!) these projects are what I am day dreaming about… I can’t wait!
I have to just say, as we continue to lose people left & right every single day, Don’t let life escape you! Don’t allow what has held you back to continue doing so! Don’t forget to make that call to whomever or take that step you’ve been meaning to take — because there are people who thought they were waking up today who didn’t… they don’t have the same luxury we have to still make things happen in this life… so please do everything in your power to make your life as happy & fulfilling as you can – by doing so you do the same for everyone you come into contact with… help make the world better! xoxoxoxoxo
I LOVE YOU!!!!! UNTIL NEXT TIMEâ€¦ SENDING LOVE â€“ HOPE & ETERNAL BLESSINGS
