SongwritersWell, the summer is now officially over and who would have thought – the workload is still full on regardless of the season!

With so much writing (both fiction and songs), rehearsing for the upcoming show and meticulous planning, I don’t think I’ve ever juggled so many projects all at once.

But that’s what makes it all worthwhile, doesn’t it?

Over the past couple of months, I’ve been blessed to discover some fabulous new songwriters – and I don’t just mean producer/writers but solid composers. Some people say the craft of songwriting is slowly disappearing, but let’s face it, there’s got to be some cracking talent on their way to writing a classic or two in the coming years! I suppose this is something I’m most excited about – finding new talent and seeing it blossom in front of my eyes. Creativity – it pushes all my buttons, that’s for sure!

We’re anticipating some very exciting covers this fall, including Yanni’s upcoming new album and a PBS Special.

And of course, our very own “Thinking of Someone Else” remixed by Mystery & Matt Early – this brand new Jazz Funk mix is about to hit the radio stations thanks to the amazing work by Media 2 Radio worldwide and TopHit.ru in Russia!

Keep your eyes and ears open for more updates…

P.S. More songs coming your way within the next few weeks, including a brand new single “Treat Me Like a Woman” which I’ve just written with Fabulous Fab & Christopher Neil… It will be recorded in NYC’s Lower Eastside Flux Studios next month. I’m so psyched, cannot wait to share it with all of you!

On my way to Williamsburg to finish a new tune with Christian from GoodandEvil (one of my most exciting recent discoveries!) that we started the very day we heard about a great loss in our barely intact world of music and entertainment… MJ. michael_jackson_bad_era

So much has been written, spoken and especially fabricated about this one-of-a-kind artist with a capital letter “A”, it’s becoming increasingly difficult to be able to tell the difference between what’s true and what’s utterly untrue and false. As I’m typing this blog, Larry King and his colleagues are speculating about the possible reasons as to “why, how and when…” May he R.I.P. – or are we incapable of granting one’s final wish, I wonder?

I never really intended to blog about this, particularly because of the
overwhelming number of articles, blogs and statements issued over the past
couple of weeks, but on the other hand, how can one blame people for not
being able to ignore the life and death of someone as significant in the
world of music, entertainment and our pop culture?

On a lighter note, daily news feeds and airplay updates are coming through
from back home. Yes, “Thinking of Someone Else” has finally been released in
Russia and what is now known as the CIS – the original Dean St. Radio Mix of
“ToSE” hit 179 cities across the former USSR last Friday and is climbing up
the charts. It made me smile when I heard from my Russian representative
yesterday that this very track is one of the highlight new releases
according to the main FM station in… Siberia. I mean, seriously, NY to
Siberia and beyond – is the world shrinking or…?

The Riffs & Rays Remix is going to hit the radio stations back home within
the next few days, although one of my personal favorite stations in Russia,
Europe + already aired the premiere of the tune on one of its leading
weekend shows, “Euro-Mix” last Saturday night. Hearing the same song on
various European and US stations over the past few months was probably not
as bizarre as listening to it on one of my childhood favorite programs – it
took me way back to my teenage years when I listened to the radio, wrapped
up in bed on a winter night with my earphones and a radio Walkman hidden
away under the blanket WAY past midnight!!!

Wait, wait… “ToSE” is still in the Top 5 on iDance FM… How come?
Requests… Really!!! The good “old school” way.

There’s so much more I’d like to share with you all, but since I’m already
running late for my session with Chris (plus, I daren’t spill the beans just
yet about the rest of my upcoming stuff…) I’ve got to cut right here. And
I promise to keep you posted in the following weeks as the latest projects
and news “in the making” unfold on daily basis. I’m so psyched!
