It was incredible to sing in the city center of San Miguel de Allende. I can’t wait to go back to this charming city next year for the La Calaca festival. I opened my performance with one of my favorite songs, La Vie en Rose, complete with traditional makeup.
Early fans know this as the first song I wrote, in the heat of summer, Chicago 2012.
With access to better tools and talented folks in Los Angeles, I revamped the song, recomposing a bridge section adding harmonies, and had the song professionally mixed and mastered.
Voilà le result. Ode to nostalgia!
What a pleasure to chat with the woman behind the curtain, Kris, on Fearless Radio…tune in as we discuss music, the industry, travel, society and its issues…and last but not least, live performances of Four Words acoustic @ 26:00 and La Vie en Rose at 38:30.
Life in Pink. LIFE IN LOVE !!! (the latter is really what she’s singing about). This has been one of my favorite songs for as long as I can recall. It’s one of my “go-to’s” when people ask me to sing. Perhaps this cover will be controversial, seeing as it completely disregards the original chord progressions and tempo, replaced by my own whims whilst writing through the night in my humble Los Angeles abode. I’ve given you fair warning To me, its slower tempo with ambient, electronic, sultry undertones —feels like love intoxication, or as JT coined lovestoned — the kind that disarms you, and leaves you floating, floating in a cloud of bliss. I hope I’m able to transmit this feeling to you with this song. Take a deep breath, and take 5 minutes to float in my cloud <3
GROW – song – story – music video – campaign
There’s a thin line between love and hate.
The song and video are dedicated to everyone who’s ever found the strength to Grow — whether out of a bad habit or a bad relationship. I had the privilege of joining forces with The Chicago Battered Women’s Network, The Chicago Metropolitan Family Services, NO MORE, CAADA, and Peace Over Violence to create an awareness campaign against domestic and interpersonal violence — an underexposed, pervasive, and widespread problem which continues to persist beyond the development of societies…
I also had the honor of performing Grow at the the downtown Los Angeles One Billion Rising event on Feb, 14 2013 — a small piece of the puzzle and part of the other countless events that occurred in over 200 countries that same day!
Spread the love and awareness please!
