3 ways to start living the life you want!

April 22, 2017

Wow time flies!   Today I want to talk about “3 ways to start living the life you want!”

  1.  Decide what success is for yourself!-Many people will come up to me all the time and be like ” I never hear you on the radio”.  “Are you famous?”.  Its totally cool for them to ask these questions.  It is definitely a weird feeling when someone asks you if you are famous.  The answer is it doesn’t really matter.  If someone really believes in what they are doing and and love what they do that’s what matters.  You may say, “Oh she is bitter about not being on the radio.  etc etc.  Honestly no I am not.  I am really happy being an Independent artist.  I know I will not be played on the radio at least at this moment in time.  Major labels work with the radio stations.   If you are not on a Major Label you will not get played.  Its that simple.  Once you realize this and be ok with where you are at its beautiful.  Can you blame the labels?  No they are a business and they need to do what they need to do.   Success for me is continually creating and making music that people can feel.  When you can create something beautiful you can see the world in a whole new light.

2.      

Make a vision board- If you do not know what this is you can google it or I can make another blog post about it.  It has honestly really worked as crazy as it sound at first.

3.  Perception-Things will go wrong at times!  Its inevitable.  Its how you look at it that matters.   So many people told me you cant make an album it costs thousands of dollars.  In my mind I thought “Ok if I work 2 jobs I can save enough money in 1 year to create an album.”  So I went out worked and worked and worked.  I went to work from 9am to 8pm and then went to a small basement studio from 9pm – 3 am everyday for 8 months.  People said “What songs are you going to record.  People are not willing to write for people they have never heard of.”  I finished writing 1o songs on the guitar and piano and that was my first album.  I also had some nice session players come in and play additional instrumentation for like $100 a song.  (You can find many players at colleges that are excellent and would love to be on albums)

Through all of these I am trying to say that you can make your dreams happen.  Think outside the box and know going into it things will not be easy.  It will probably never happen in the way you think.  You have to adjust.  Life is an adjustment everyday. We are here to grow and discover life.

Beauty and Happy New Years!

January 1, 2017

Sometimes it seems like the beauty in life always seems to appear when its peaceful and quiet.  Its been quite the week and just got back from touring in Tennessee and how amazing and crazy it was.  I loved the people!  I am actually not a morning person so to wake up to catch flights at 4 am and leave places at 6 am is quite the challenge for me then again I am not a night person either.  HA I think I am a 10 am – 8 pm I guess– But thats Ok it always is worth it.

(Private party I loved playing with some of the children)

Yes from the picture at the top I look all put together.  That is not always the case.  It went pretty smooth besides the flood of the hotel room.  Yes if anyone knows me sometimes I tend to clog the toilet.  Yes!  I was like half way asleep and didn’t notice how much I put in and water came flooding into the room!   Yep you read that right.  It took about 4 hours to dry with the blowdryer but its all good.

Ill share some pictures and more details coming up.

Oh The sacrifice we have to make too to make dreams happen.  Thank you for all the people that paid for me to come out to Tennessee.  You are amazing!  It was not until I got back that I really got to take in the last few weeks. I wish all of you the most amazing Holidays!!  2016 was a great year and 2017 is going to be even better!  What are you goals for 2017?

Love you all Margie!

Music Of The Week

Shaun Barrows

December 4, 2016

This is my featured artist for the week.

Micheal Bubble has a super cool sound and I have enjoyed his music for years. He is such a talented artist and very diverse.  He can go from a sweet soft ballad to a jazzy uptempo vibe.  It seems like he always does inspirational and motivating themes in his music which is really cool and everything I have seen him do is family friendly. What I like most is how he adds the hero theme into what he does.
You guys will have to check out his music and leave a comment if you want.
You can find his music at shauncanon youtube.14519748_1136514599760795_7003532436078610402_n

Fresh and Honest

November 7, 2016
Hey friends!
So I have been working for hours upon hours on my new music.  Every original song I have released I have either written or co-written so it takes a lot more time for me to get new music out.  I know it would be easier to just sing music I do not write but its so important for me to write on the songs.
That is not to say that I would never release a song I did not write on.  If its a great song that speaks to me maybe I would sing it but for now that is not the case. I did just release a new single so find it here!

Halloween Is Coming!

October 25, 2016

Halloween Is Coming! Are You Ready?

What do you like to do for Halloween?  I love Halloween and dressing up.

What do you guys think about my outfit?  I found this skirt and love it! I know I look like a bobble-head in some of these pictures lol.   For me, best parts about the holidays is not necessarily what you buy but the experience you have while enjoying the moment.

I still remember when I was a kid  I was obsessed with holidays and  I would go to the library every week and go straight to the holiday section.  I would learn all the crafts, tricks, games and cooking recipes.  Every year I would wear like 4 different costumes.  I would change outfits everyday during the week of Halloween.  Anyways, hope you guys are having a super great Halloween coming up!  New Music coming soon.

Performing in Europe

The 2nd Day In Rome, Italy
5 Things about the Spanish Steps in Rome, Italy

October 20, 2016

I had a day off in between performing and went to the Spanish Steps.

Here are 5 things I found fascinating about them.

I have always loved history!

1.  Architect Francesco de Sanctis designed the Spanish Steps built in 1723-1725 and were financed by French diplomat Étienne Gueffier’s bequeathed.

2. The Spanish Steps is the widest and one of the most momentous staircases in Europe.

3. At the corner on the right as one begins to climb the steps, is the house where English poet John Keats lived and died in 1821; it is now a museum dedicated to his memory, full of memorabilia of the English Romantic generation.

4. The Spanish steps unique design and elegance has made it a popular place for artists, painters and poets who were attracted to the place which inspired them in return.

5. At the lower end of the stairs you can find an early baroque fountain called Fontana della Barcaccia, or “Fountain of the Old Boat”. It is credited Pietro Bernini; a member of the renowned artist family Bernini and father of famous Baroque artist Gian Lorenzo Bernini.
