Remember in February when I published an acoustic version of "Maybe I'm Amazed" and said it was a work in progress? Well, I've made some major progress! In fact, I made a video! I also decided a duet would be FAB, so I asked the fantastically talented Steve Maggiora (Steve the Wreck) to add some magic to the track and he did so in spades. I thought it was pretty cool that this was a long distance collaboration (Nicaragua/Los Angeles) so I decided to make a video depicting that.
This video will be public so if you would like to share it PLEASE DO!!!
I hope you love it! Let me know if you do! (comment, like, share)
(Should this be on the next album?!!)
Behind the scenes note: There is one BIG vocal lick that I did 75 times* in a row in order to get it just right. I think I may have driven a certain individual to the point of insanity.
General note: This is not a "paid" post, but your patronage IS responsible for making it happen.
Some other things that are flipping' cool about this collaboration:
A. Your support in February allowed me to pay/support another artist (Steve Maggiora). The fact that I will more often be able to reach out to other artists, musicians, engineers, videographers to help me create is HUGE. You are not only supporting me, but a community of artists.
B. Steve Maggiora is one of my patrons - how cool is that?!! I love that Patreon is a network of creators that also support each other! Steve is not the only artist supporting me and I'd like to give a shout out (and encourage you to CHECK OUT) all the incredible artists that currently or at one time supported me here on Patreon:
Steve Maggiora (Steve the Wreck)
Rebecca Loebe <--------------------INCREDIBLE NEW ALBUM "BLINK"
Fran Grinels (thanks mom!)
**** If I forgot anyone - let me know!!!! *****
And then, obviously, I recommend discovering the artists on Patreon that I support: Amanda Palmer, Megan Slankard, Carsie Blanton, Violet Bell, Brandon Hardesty, Birch Pereira and of course Raina Rose. :) (Find links on the bottom right of my Creator Page, "Overview" tab.)
