Long time no see! Rest assured, you’ve been on my mind. A LOT.
And you know how I love giving presents? There’s one hiding in here for you (as well as a VERY interesting invitation, down the bottom).
But first: I’m the kind of gal who likes the chance to say a “proper goodbye”, you know? Are you the same?
If so, please join me in saying “Adios, old friend!” to the season that gave us Modern Day Addiction. In case you never heard it, MDA was a gutsy, critically acclaimed, award-winning, freaking unique Top Ten album that almost killed me to make (it’s THAT good): add it to your collection here .
Time also to bid farewell to our amazing MDA website, with all it’s projects and photos and open letters and resources and fun and games. See ya old buddy. It’s been swell.
In the spirit of proper goodbyes, I’ve made you a little something: it’s an extremely raw and big old EMOTIONAL and never before seen film-clip, which I recorded with the Lady Garden (Aluka). It’s a song about a heart-breaking goodbye that needed to happen.
Since then, my hair has grown, and so has my heart, but it’s a work in progress, and this work has been the making of my fifth album (due out in a coupla months).
I hope you LOVE the clip, share it with your friends, and tell us what you think of it on Facebook – I’ll be hanging out there quite a bit this month!
Important PS! OOH OOH!
I’ve been coaching and mentoring creative-types since 2003, when I first ran a music-business course at my local community house. I do this for free publicly (see below), and I also get paid HANDSOMLY to do it privately (although I’m currently booked out until November 2012 – join the waiting list by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org).
Later this year, I’ll begin using my website to share everything I know about how to make your living by doing the thing you love (and why this makes the world a far better place too!).
If you have any specific questions you’d like answered related to any aspect at all of running a creative business (from “How do I juggle a family and a creative life?” to “How much should I be charging for my gigs?”) please email them to us email@example.com the title “Question for Clare”. Perhaps yours will be the one we choose to feature on our website! xoxo
