Happy New Year!
Wow, where has the time gone? Is it me, or does it seem like time is speeding up? (Amazing)
A lot of great and exciting things have been happening in my life. My single "Switch Lanes" dropped
which I am most excited about. So if you haven't had a chance to take a listen yet please do so. You can download the song via the sites listed. You'll also be able to download it as a ringtone on my site.
You can now subscribe to my YOUTube account at www.youtube.com/buttabrocka. There you will see the behind the scenes footage of the making of my video "Switch Lanes" and my SESAC performance that will certainly give you great insight on what's in store. I will also from time to time record myself just being me. I'll discuss different topics, some of my favorite artists, and things that I'm going through my journey. Here's a link to the site http://www.youtube.com/buttabrocka
I am working hard to finish up my debut album this month. As a songwriter it's very easy for me to write songs, but having to narrow down the songs that best represent me as an artist can sometimes be crazy. I love music period...all sorts of music, but now I have to decide which genre I want to show you guys. I never liked the thought of being kept in a box so my album will have more of a pop-rock feel.
I recently added a public relations company based out of L.A. to my team that I'm extremely excited about. My writing partner and I have also created the theme song for a new kid's animation called Chocolate Cupcake that will be televised soon. I can't share much about it but just know when it drops it's going to be a huge success! I've also recently got more international placements, so as you can see I'm heavy at work.
People ask me all the time "what's your week like"? Well...my days mostly consist of doing vocal production on several projects, doing demos, and writing for my own project as well as other major and independent artists. I also write a few jingles for companies sometimes. I also give vocal lessons to a few students each week. I'm trying hard to make sure I have a strong presence on the internet so I'm constantly updating websites, adding pictures here and there and responding to different requests. In the evenings I'm networking and going to various events which means I'm usually up from about 6:30am to 3 or 4 the next morning. As you may have noticed I'm a very driven and determined woman and when I focus on a goal I usually get it done. Some say I am a workaholic but I say if I can't give 100% to my own dreams then no one else will; therefore I have to pour everything into whatever I'm doing. So why does this project mean so much to me?? Because its represents all that I can giv,e I am giving you 100%. And although I'm a little scared of the unknown (if people will like my music, if my songs will make an impact, if I'll be a one-hit wonder, if I can really pull this off and will anyone care) the answer is I made an obligation to myself and I can't worry about the "what if's" life is like a box of chocolates you never know what your going to get, but what I do know is if I never tried, I WOULD NEVER KNOW. All I can do is give you all of me and hope that it's accepted.
Stay tuned to hear more about a showcase that's going down NEXT MONTH "in March" which will highlight me as both a writer and artist. More details to come!!
