The Most important 10 Moments of my Year 2014

1.pink lion –
This is a wonderful memory that I got from January last year. I attented to the Midem music festival in Cannes where about 10.000 people from all around the world came to talk and do business in regards with music.
It’s definitely a great place for artists to do some networking and also meeting publishers and record labels. On the last day of my visit I decided to do a good meditation and visualisation before starting my long schedule day of meetings. It made me feel strong, focused and very relaxed.
I texted my husband, who is a Behaviour Strategist in Harley Street, and wrote – I feel like a pink lion. As a response, my husband sent me this wonderful photo that became my screen saver, reminding me that sensation of feeling strong but soft at the same time – Velvet glove with Iron fist .

2. On the same day I went to the Carlton hotel in Cannes, where all the exclusive people from the music industry have their meetings. With the attitude of a Pink Lion I was looking around and also very aware of what was going on. Suddenly I saw a man in his late sixties who was talking with the Warner music representative in Israel. I was drawn to talk to him even though I felt a bit shy. I looked at my pink lion photo and went straight and started to speak to him. I was thrilled to realise that my intuition was so strong as the man was the legendary -Seymour Stein, who was the founder of Sire Records which signed pioneer artists such as Talking Heads, The Pretenders , Madonna, Depeche Mode and many more . I told him about my song ‘Free Will’ and very soon I will actually send him the single!

3. Deciding to do the kickstarter campaign was a moment that I will never forget. To do such a campaign I had to work out of my comfort zone, as we all know that asking for money is not the easiest thing.

4. Recording string section for my single.
It was the first time that I had 14 players playing my songs. I absolutely loved it and it felt very emotional. The cinematic strings section were recorded by Haydn Bendall who’s previous credit include Kate Bush, Katie Melua and Dido. The beautiful strings arrangement was done by Phil Curran who worked with me on my previous BBC 2 playlisted single “Beauty of the Duty”.

It’s time to say goodbye to – 72 Names !

It’s time to say goodbye to – 72 Names !

Since 2010 my life was all around my first album 72 Names .

Although I had before an album with collection of songs based on the most know classical melodies – Timeless Melodies .

72 Names  album was my first album as an artist with my own melodies and words .

As an independent artist I feel so proud of what I manage to achieve and how much I learn from it.

  It’s only when you jumped to a deep water that you learn how to swim .

I learn so much about promotion , radio pluggers, public relation , production , social media ,radio,  playlist and more.

I had few critics that wrote about the album that it had allot of potential  and I am a good singer but the main criticism was that it was collection of songs with different  directions .

I completely agree with that claim as it was my intention to put collection of my best songs together and I can’t help it that I am a lady with many hats .

Looking back, yes it might be easier to market it with only one style but as I wrote in my song – Calling You

” I never look back , I never regret ”  I learn through  the different styles what I really love and who are my real audience.

And  its time to move on to something new , so Watch out for my new project !

Short video of the making of  Calling  You video  that have reached over 70000 hits by

Director Brad Watson

Thanks for all the support !

All We Need is Love – Olympics Reflections

All We Need is Love –  Olympics Reflections 

I hope you all enjoyed watching the Olympics, for me the athletics, the swimming and the diving were the main highlights. It brought back to me great memories of when I was the fastest girl in school in which the climax of my running was when I achieved 8.7 in the 60 metres while I was competing with the fastest boy in school and we got the same result. I wish I had a camera at the time to film the expression of my excitement, I took the laces off my trainers and tore them apart.

I never managed to achieve that speed again as we moved to Mexico city, which is a very high place and it was difficult for me to run, but the fire stayed inside me for all those years and slowly turned into singing and writing songs. The Olympic gold medals

Winners showed me one single thing;  how much training is the first basic thing  to succeed but  support  and love are the essential ingredient  to achieve something in life.

We could see on TV how  the strong connection between  Andy Murray and Michael Phelps mothers  and  the stories of all the other champions with their supportive families .

The GB team succeed beyond our expectations  and they all say of how  much the support and love of the  audience affected them.

Last night their was a programme of the best moments in football and there was an unbelievable moment when Paolo Di Canio from West Ham at the past got grumpy with the team and sat down on the field refusing to play .

Suddenly all the crowd started to sing his name and it was like super man suddenly putting his armour on and he just woke up and played like he never played before and scored immediate goals. It was clear as crystal how the crowd effected him.

For me as an independent artist you are the support  & off course my sweet husband – every comment, every like , spreading the word, download my music and especially your personal emails give me the drive to keep doing what I love so much .

Thank You !
