Lucky Number 76

posted in: The Journey, The Music | 6

Its no secret that I’m excited (and frightened by) the upcoming album launch. A few days ago we launched the pre-order competition; pre-order Invincible Summer and you could win and performance by me and my band (anywhere in SA). If you’re outside of the country and are bummed about not winning a performance… Sorry. But you DO get a limited edition Invincible Summer T-shirt when you pre-order the album (YAY!!)

You KNOW you want to pre-order the album

Since the day we announced the campaign, I felt the doubt start to creep in. You know the usual B.S that goes through your mind when you are doing something that REALLY matters to you. Today my manager lady told me that we have EXACTLY 76 PRE-ORDERS OF THE ALBUM! 76! 

To some, this may seem like nothing. But to someone like me. Who has no label, no budget, just a dream, my talent, my Manger Lady and a good attitude (mostly). This is a BIG DEAL! It means that out there somewhere there are 76 people who really like my music and believe that the album is worth ordering. I am SO HAPPY! So happy that 76 people took time out of their busy lives and actually PRE-ORDERED MY ALBUM!

Thank you. Thank you. THANK YOU! Please keep spreading the word and don’t ever stop being so amazing.

Grateful & ecstatic Porcelain :)

I LOVE Melody’s stuff. Got my bestie some awesome M.E stuff for her birthday. I’m thinking of getting myself something for Christmas. Yessir!

May have just fallen for her

Everything she said is everything that I believe. She is beautiful and just… Well you know how it goes when you ‘discover’ a like-minded woman. She is talented, smart and speaks a bunch of languages. Yes. A bunch. I’m going to go and stalk her and her works for a while.

Serenade 2

posted in: The Journey, The Music | 1

This week we hosted another one of the Serenades. It was at Seventeen (SA) and it was also their 6th birthday. I added ‘Happy Birthday’ to the set list ;)

I don;t need to tell you how happy performing makes me. This week has left me feeling grateful and excited about the album launch. Its been almost 2 and a half years (on and off) and now I am doing all the things that we (Marcee and I) have been planning for months.

The response to the new single (Hot Pink) has been so overwhelming. I wrote that song when I was feeling low and I thought people might not get where I was coming from. When I sing it and I see that people can relate, I feel not-so-alone.

Janine wanted to take a pic of the shoes I had on. That has NEVER happened to me before :)
I’ve always had fantasies about working for a magazine. I had to look around. They have such a great working space.
I think I was singing… Or talking… Or both!
The audience :)

Every time I do one of these serenades, I thank the people who allow me and my team into their working space. They honestly don’t know what to expect and they are always so awesome. Thank you Team Seventeen!

Serenades 1

posted in: Fun and Games, The Music | 0

Although my music is on the playlist of countries in 36 countries… I’m still finding it hard to get radio here in South Africa to play my music. This isn’t one of those ‘woe is me’ type posts. I am the queen of D.I.Y when it comes to my music.

Manager Lady and I decided to go straight to the people with the release of my new single ‘Hot Pink’. So we started ‘serenading’ people at their offices. It is A LOT of fun to rock up at people’s offices and have fun with music. This week we did 4 of those Porcelain Serenades.When we arrive at the offices everyone is a little reserved because this is not something that happens all the time. But I have them singing along in no time ;)

Thanks to the awesome people at Cape Town Magazine, Rolling Stone, Have You Heard and Liquorice.

At Cape Town Magazine offices
They were an awesome bunch to start the serenades with

At Rolling Stone, that’s the editor (Miles) in the corner of the pic

Got Pink cupcakes for the masses. The song I’m launching is called Hot Pink :)
At Liquorice. I was expecting just a few people and it turned out to be more than 20 of them he he he.

I can’t wait to do this again next week. I told you its been awesome week.

A Week Ago

posted in: Fun and Games, The Journey | 0

Exactly a week ago I ran 10km (Gun Run). I had never run 10km before and I didn’t know what to expect. A few months ago we ran 5km at the Spar Women’s Race, but we felt that 5km was not enough. Twice a week Marcee and I run about 7km, so it’s not like we hadn’t prepared. That race will go down as one of the toughest and most fun thing we’ve done this year. The last 2km were definitely more difficult. I felt like my legs were turning to jelly ha ha ha.

I always used to think that I was not a ‘physical’ person, but I was wrong. I enjoy pushing myself and that great feeling after having done something that you thought you couldn’t do.

Posing with the medals. My legs were threatening to ‘give in’.
I forced little bro & Marcee to take a ‘leisurely stroll’ through Green Point Park, the car was parked so far away from the Finish :(
The other runners making their way to their cars
So impressed with the recycling bins at the park. Nice one!

I was going to post the photo of my little bro helping me along as my legs were seriously letting me down, but he asked me to delete it.

Today Is The Day

posted in: The Journey, The Music | 0

Since I’m sharing music… Thought I might as well share some of my own. Below is the music video for my song Today Is The Day, from my upcoming album Invincible Summer. You can actually pre-order the album starting today. If you pre-order the album you could WIN a private performance by me and my band ANYWHERE in South Africa. If you’re not in the country, don’t be sad you also get a FREE limited edition t-shirt with the album.

So, if you are interested in pre-ordering the album just WhatsApp/sms ‘Invincible’ to to +2782 643 6020 or BBM ‘Invincible’ to 297A1643 for more information.

Bearded and What Now?

A few weeks ago while I was filling up (my car) I saw a man with a beard. He was so HOT I immediately tweeted that I would kiss him AND his beard. I can’t say that I was a beard girl before… But I think I am becoming one. Thanks to the tumblr Bearded and Black I can (safely) look at some hotties with beards. This is a safe space, so no judgement!

I visited the blog today and saw the most talented and good looking Yasiin Bey (formerly known as Mos Def)

Law’ ha’ mercy!!

This made me find one my MOST favourite-est songs by this dude, check out the video below.

BOP TV used to play music videos late at night and I used to stay up on a Friday or Saturday night to see this one.
