Rockaoke

26 03 2012

So I have recently discovered the Rockaoke band. If you live in London, or are going to any festivals, I suggest you discover them too. They are a professional (and very good) rock band who play from a list of songs and then you can join them on stage and pretend to be a rock star. Their website has a list of the songs and their upcoming gigs http://www.rockaoke.co.uk/index.php I would throughly recommend getting yourself to one of their shows. Just a little advice though if you do want to sing get your song request in early. They are very popular! The first time I saw them I didn’t get to sing as they were inundated with requests. There are some really great singers though so its worth it even if you are too shy to get up and sing. I hope to be unleashing my inner rockstar again soon!

Me on stage at The PEA awards

I got to join the rockaoke band on stage at the Pea awards in Southwark. It was a brilliant event with some of the most incredible people in sustainable business in attendance. I sang a KT Tunstall song and enjoyed some lovely organic Gin and canapes





Singing through sadness

20 03 2012

So recently I have been feeling pretty down. My boyfriend and I parted ways hence my gap in blog posts. One of the things that helped me to feel better was just to get up and sing.All the anxiety and upset in my stomach that I felt when I thought of our breakup just fell away when I started to sing. That may sound a bit strange but I have been through all of my resources: getting upset, getting angry, talking to friends, eating pints of Ben and Jerrys! Getting hugs from my mum and the one thing that makes me feel the best is just singing at the top of my voice! I can’t recommend it highly enough. I can map each stage of the break up with a song and this has strengthened my relationship with music. A relationship that can always be relied on to be nourishing and fulfilling.

I have recorded my efforts and put a couple of them on youtube. Here is one for you to check out. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making the video!
