The music of The Lord of the Rings will always be held so close to my heart. I know each song so well after listening to my CDs for hundreds of hours in my youth. So magical, and hits all the heartstrings.

Scarborough Fair is a song I'll always come back to, it's like a warm hug while you're asking if a love interest could support your whimsical desires. You know, just magical girl things.
I'm currently working on a new song for Yuletide shenanigans. This year is not the year we get a whole album, and that's ok. While I was finally able to really tap in to music again in August, this year hasn't been without it's heartaches and significant distractions. But again, that's ok. Music is always there for me, supporting me through whatever it may be, singing, or just listening to sooth my heart.
Hope you are very well,
This song has truly become part of my spoopy season tradition, you can oft find me singing it whilst I sit on the porch during sunset while the kitties roll in the dying sun, or while I'm walking in the woods. I truly love how immersive music can be for the stories we tell, and this is one of my favourites from The Witcher 3.
This is such a lovely lullaby that's tinged with sadness. It's from the Dragon Age Inquisition game, and I loved making this with Brume. It's so wonderful to make music with others, what a joy! I hope you like it ❤️

So happy to be completely filled with music, and such good music from Baldur's Gate 3. I'm on my second restart of the game, and I'm committed to this playthrough, lol. Astarion is still my vampire-boy dandy love interest, because I can't help myself. Lestat from Anne Rice's books was one of my first big-time fictional crushes (especially after he begins to realize that he needs to work on himself).
I hope you're doing so very well and that you're enjoying this wonderful music with me!
Truly been on a roll this last few months. Baldur's Gate 3 is certainly an endless pit of inspiration, and it's always a good way to hone your skills by making covers. I never end up changing how a cover song sounds much because I tend to cover the songs I already love the genre of, and this is no exception!
So when I first encountered Alfira's scene, it took me two seconds to realize that even though she's holding a lute, the main instrument in the instrumental of the song was actually harp. Lol. So I decided to match up what we see on screen and put that lute back in there! I think it sounds lovely either way, but I can't get enough lute!
As a patron, you can download either an mp3 or wav file early! Take a peak at patronage.
Video and streaming release is happening on Friday, the 29th!
Yes, another Witcher song was written. In fact, I Will Fly, Bound by Destiny, and Running To were all written at the same time a few summers ago. This song is about Yen and her journey to figuring out exactly what she wants, and knowing that no one will stop her, she works beyond the bounds that the Brotherhood in Aretuza or mortal Kings try to place upon her. Ultimately, of course, it's love that she seeks. Something untainted and purely her own.
Stay tuned as both I Will Fly and Bound by Destiny will be fully released soon! ✨✨
Something that has been in the works for a long time! Hoping to get this song out soon. In the meantime, this is based on Geralt tying himself to Ciri by fate, in probably one of the more foolish way one can after helping remove the curse from Ciri's father. To give me that which you don't already know you have.... Ahhh, how I love Geralt getting himself into the muck, hehe!
Jazz in the summer... could it be any more perfect? I've made it down to the beach once so far, but the water was still cool, only 16 degrees C. But I knew I should have brought my bathing suit, it would have been so wonderful to go right in and have the waters wash away the fog of this past few years. Even if only a little bit.
In the meantime, listening to jazz, and waiting for the rains to stop so that I can go properly have a swim in the lake. Hope you are doing so well,
Happy Solstice day, my friends!
