Happy New Year! 2018 here we go! When a new year is on the horizon, it always feels like a breath of fresh air. I get a free pass on hitting that reset button. Setting goals and intentions makes a world of difference. One of my many goals for this year is to start this blog and create a connection with you on a deeper level. I'm all about human connection, which is why I sing. It's my truest form of connection both to myself and others. Music is sometimes the only way I am fully able to self express. That same deep connection is what makes us vulnerable but also strong, so strong! I encourage you to do whatever that is for you this year even if it feels scarier than anything else. On the other side of that fear is truth, authenticity, freedom, and ever evolving self awareness and connection... I am so grateful for the path I've chosen to be able to fulfill that part of my soul. Over the past year I have received so many requests to answer specific questions about what I'm doing. I felt like this would be the perfect place to do that and open a discussion. Share with me! Let me know what you're doing, what you love, and why! You inspire me! We can inspire each other and that's what it's all about, staying inspired, isn't it?
What you can expect from me this year? Lots of new music! Blog Posts and Vlog Posts with a window into what I'm up to day to day, week to week...new song ideas, inspiration, fashion, the up's, the downs (yes they happen, they are real, and just as important as those ups), show prep, all of it! Speaking of, Live Shows! Once that new music drops, I'll be ready to hit the stage again! More bathroom sessions (If you haven't seen those yet, click over to the video tab and subscribe to my youtube channel. I had a blast filming these with the talented musicians featured in the videos.) I also provided a link right here below. :)
My 2017 project, debut EP, "Edge of the Sun" is only available here on my site. I have physical copies only, get one while you can. I will be loading the EP in it's entirety onto soundcloud in the upcoming weeks (by popular demand, yay!) for listening only... have to keep those limited physical copies special. Believe it or not, I still love my CDs. I get to connect a little deeper to the artist that way and hope you do too!
Please feel free to connect with me! (IG, FB, YouTube, Site email) I will make sure to read and respond here on the blog with your questions, song requests, and inspiration. Starting with the first week in February, I will be going live on IG to take your questions and chat with you! Make sure to tune in! If you haven't yet set any 2018 goals or intentions. Do it now! It could be anything, big or small. Write it down, visualize it, remember to think back on what you're grateful for. hashtag #melissagottlieb on your posts so I can share in the inpo! Sending love, xx -Melissa
