I'm sorry I've been so quiet as of late! I just now logged in and saw all of your wonderful comments, and emails. It nearly brought me to tears! The reason I have been less verbose is that something pretty stinky happened to me recently....a song that I recorded several years ago for the video game, "Dance Audition" was appropriated from me, and cobbled into another artist's song, which is now a #1 hit. I have suffered much heartache over this, but would like to keep moving ahead if you good folks are still with me. There's not much to say, but anyone with a brain in their skull can figure it out, listen, compare notes, then read the blog (linked below). Not certain why I was targeted, but, it's hurtful nonetheless. The amazing Cherrytree artist, Lindi Ortega has even weighed in, which is really appreciated as she gives a musician's perspective, as well Amy Winehouse's back up singer Lawrence aka L.A.W., Ryan's Rock Show, and the lovely Lady Miss Kier of Dee-lite (Grooooove is in the heart) I am so grateful that my original fans from way back when, and other industry folks have my back:
Thanks to the stalwart beings that have stood by my side. I'm sorry that I went on site "hiatus", I was just dealing with this. Cherrytree is still my dream label, and Martin knows that I really look up to him. He's worked at WBR in the past, and I was lucky to get my start at WBR as well in the new media department. Although I am no longer there, it was a terrific experience! Perhaps I will be a C.Tree artist someday.....I'm not going to let this latest hack job described above crush my dream!
In the mean time, here are some fun and less jarring things: Here's my song, "REAL WOMAN" on FOX's "MELROSE PLACE" in the opening scene, natch! PLEASE turn the sound UP so you can hear it, it plays when the character Loren Yung is stretching by the pool, aw.
Here are my songs, "STRUT" and "MY SLUSHY" in the vid game "DANCE AUDITION", you can download it at www.redbana.com, and the songs, as always, are on iTunes. WISH I were a Cherrytree artist however!
