Well, we all know 2020 has been bizarre and our “regular” lives are all quite beyond recognition, but I am of the belief that we all have (or can) benefit in some way from the Covid-19 experience felt the world over; that somehow or another, we can still gain that new perspective, that elusive 20/20 vision, so to speak.
Personally, I’ve been on a performance hiatus – with the exception of a few streams on Facebook and a couple of live shows – but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been creating. In fact, I would have absolutely gone mad without my creative outlets.
Throughout 2020 I’ve been spending my time cooking for my family,
baking all sorts of delicious treats,
taking lots of pictures of beautiful things in nature,
and appreciating every single day of the season changes.
I’ve also been writing a ton of new original songs, playing with some sewing projects, and working on the initial brainstorming for some books I’ve been dreaming about for years.
One of my favorite challenges and fun musical endeavors has been recording imperfect “a capella kitchen versions” of songs on a super primitive app on my phone. Most have around 9 vocal tracks all recorded off of one scratch track that isn’t even in the final product! Plus, you can’t hear any of your previously recorded tracks, so it’s a bit difficult to even get it “close enough.”
You can find most of them on my Swanny Rose YouTube Channel or on my Instagram Page (@swannyrosemusic) so be sure to subscribe, leave a like on your favorites, and hit share! Thank you for your support!
Here is my most recent recording featuring highly varied outfits (both warm weather and cold weather) because we’ve had seasonal craziness here in Minnesota recently.
I mean seriously, we literally had temperatures between the 50s and the 80s, and then it SNOWed yesterday. Sheesh, so much for fall! 🤣
Hope everyone is tapping into their deeper selves today and doing something to grow your mind, heart and soul. Be well and be kind to one another so we can all make 2021 the best year of our (collective) lives.
XOXO’S Love Swanny Rose ⚘
