BLOG 2012

9th October 2012


"Performing wasn't something to fear; it was merely a larger circle of collaboration. The more I communicated my joy to the audience, the more joy they communicated back to me. All I needed to do was sing with conviction, speak my truth from the heart, honestly and straightforwardly, and offer my words, ideas and music to the audience as if it were one collective friend that I'd known for a long time.

I had found the key to performing. It was to be authentically myself."

From Carole King's autobiography A Natural Woman; highly recommended to anyone interested in songwriting and performing, or indeed pop music history.
