the aftermath of NACA

Posted by: kelsie

  So the conference (NACA) I’d been preparing for all year finally took place at the end of September. I’ve never experienced anything quite like this before, so I certainly learned a great deal. I’ll do my best to explain it to you in a condensed version. Basically music artists, talent agencies, comedians, magicians join NACA and then rent a booth and are able to set up a display about what they have to offer to these college kids, and their colleges/universities.   Here’s my booth:     As you can see I’ve hung posters from previous gigs for the [...]

updating you!

hey hey! So the past few months have been..well.. as always- busy. Working jobs outside of music every day, while actively pursuing my music is time consuming, as any independent artist would know. Working hard is just one aspect of how I’m able to keep my music going. The support that I have in YOU helps me to keep going as well Over the past few months I’ve met with a team that we’re slowly but surely building to help bands/artists get booked outside of Nashville. It’s a process and we’re all learning a lot. For myself, the main thing [...]

a little overdue

I should’ve wrote this blog many, many weeks ago.. it didn’t happen, but here I am today.. yaya!  So where did we leave off? Ah, yes… I received an amazing blessing the end of last year that gave me the opportunity to be back in the studio! That took place on Jan 2, 2013. It was very exciting to be back there so soon!! Jason played keys for the songs ” Run Out of Time” and ” Surround Me”. It’s absolutely thrilling to be working on new material with musicians who truly care about where I want to go as [...]

Being in the studio with Steve and Jason again was amazing! I have some video clips to share with you, but I need to sit down to edit, and make ‘em look all cool LOL  We laid the foundation for 2 songs “Maggie” and “So long, farewell, good-bye” . After just a few hours, it was so exciting to see my ‘babies’ grow  After the session ended I mentioned to Steve to let me know when he had another evening spot open with Jason. He told me that WORD/Warner Music Group (the record label) will be in studio on January 2-so [...]

The start of something new

Posted by: kelsie

2 Comments

I have been wanting to get back in the studio for a bit now, hence why I took the opportunity a few months back for free studio time at the Art Institute. After that wrapped up, one of the students offered more studio time beginning in January. I was floored thinking this could be the start of my new project which I had this concept/vision of for over a year now! So I eagerly brought the files from the Art Institute to my previous engineer  (Steve Dady) who helped produce my first project, “Sip. Swallow. Digest.” to make sure they [...]

Attitude

Posted by: kelsie

Comment

“The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failure, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company…a church…a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace that day. We cannot change our past…we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain [...]

Taxi love (part 2)

Posted by: kelsie

Comment

Soooo… 3 songs were forwarded on-! that news in itself is exciting!! BUT just because that happens doesn’t mean that the company will be interested.. it basically means the middle man (TAXI) believes that material fits. A day later I was contacted by Frank. He wrote that he was very interested in the 3 songs he received from TAXI, and was wondering if I had more material…and the rest went a little something like this: (PS- CLICK THE PICTURE TO MAKE IT BIGGER SO YOU CAN ACTUALLY READ IT

TAXI love (Part 1)

Posted by: kelsie

Comment

I’m a member of TAXI- a company that is the liaison between the independent artist (me!) and music supervisors for film, tv & labels. I pay a yearly fee to be a member so that I can receive ads that may fit my music being sent to these supervisors. I put myself and my dwindling music bank account into action and just a few weeks ago I had 3 songs forwarded!!! Which is a big deal!!!  I spent mostly all year getting my songs (submissions) rejected. So when I got 3 forwarded it felt SO amazing!! Not only were they forwarded but [...]

Amazing Opportunity!

Several weeks ago I stumbled upon an ad on craigslist.. which if you’ve used craigslist for anything you know it can be pretty hit or miss. I read an ad that stated that 2 students attending The Art Institute of Tennessee were looking for a band/artist so they could record a couple songs for their class project …at no cost!  I thought to myself this sounds very promising- considering how much money was spent on my debut project, to get a couple songs done for free- sounded amazzzzing!!!! So I contacted the guy that posted the ad, and he said [...]

So I just received a very encouraging email from my old college professor- Dr. Koponen- here’s a part of it.. “Dr. Kenote lent me her copy, and I can only say I love every minute of it! Period. The entire project, from the smallest detail, reveals perfection.” For me that response is worth my college education (even though I’m still paying that off!) .. I feel so accomplished

well after 2 shows this week, I’m declaring myself a rock star..haha.. really just being silly ’bout that  This week did give me a little glimpse of what life would be if I had this going on all the time. Right now, I’m so thankful for every opportunity that’s opened up for getting booked! It’s a challenge much bigger than what I expected.. but I think I’m getting the hang of it.. kinda.. sorta  My musicians/bandmates have been beyond amazzzzzzzing. I’m so crazy blessed by them, I don’t know if I even have words to show my gratefulness. They are [...]
