Love for the Tune..

.


.

As I am writing about my favourite things at the moment, I wanted to illustrate my love for singing, writing and performing music. I was a performing singer/songwriter and musician for several years until ill health meant I had to stop for a while. I am slowly taking steps back towards performing but it is very emotional and challenging to do it again and I think it will take some time.

I thought I would share this video with you in case you have not visited my music page here. It’s odd, but as I post this my heart is thumping…I think that watching it reminds me of great and brave times, when I sang and travelled and met amazing people and really got out into the world..it is hard sometimes to remember things you have lost..but this will always be my true heart and soul, and even if I can never perform again to the level that I used to, I am so glad that I did it.

This is quite an old song to me now, my music and outlook has changed so much (although the video was made in 2010 I wrote the song in 2003). It shows a little of the journey that I went on, through life and music, and the moving times of a travelling musician..

I hope you enjoy it!

  1. Bloody Hell!! 🙂 That’s brill, Cath! So interesting to hear your voice when I mainly know your visual work – they’re both coming from the same place – similar textures or something. You have a huge talent.

    1. Ah, thanks so much RIchard..interesting that you see connections..I feel like I’m still finding my voice a little in my visual work, it’s not had as much of my attention over the years! Good to know something is carrying over..

  2. OH. Brilliant, Catherine. Gorgeous song, and you have a stunning voice. Coming back to the things we love, and that have that level of soul-investment is so difficult and frightening, but worth it too. It may not be the same as it was as you move forward, but it’s not that you have lost any of that really – your music and this video are a testament to that. It’s changed, and so have you – and will continue to do so as time moves on. Such beauty and courage is never lost for good. Not ever.

  3. Oh my goodness this is so beautiful it gave me goosebumps and brought tears to my eyes. I had no idea you could sing like that your voice is so soothing and hypnotic almost! Alex will love this too I will play it for him later. Thanks for sharing! X

  4. Already told it to you but I repeat myself here: your music is gorgeous! You should definitely not consider these things as lost! They are necessary steps of you becoming yourself. And you can still get there, right?

    1. Thanks so much Sorin – I’m so moved by these responses! Posting this really reminded me how much it means to me to write, record and perform, a good reminder. We even did some recording this week, so yes, I will get there! Truly appreciate your very perceptive thoughts, thankyou..:)
