Surprising fan mail about my music :)

Isn’t it lovely when we get lovely kind words from lovely strangers when we least expect it? I am a very lucky girl – I received two super kind emails / posts about my songs totally unexpectedly 🙂 You can read the lovely blog post about the little me here: http://oceanicblueuk.blogspot.co.uk/2015/01/jazz-singersongwriter-extraordinaire.html And just before that, someone tweeted to me: “Just caught your #music on #SoundCloud and that is some of the best I have listened to in a while. What a great voice..!” – oh bless 🙂 I am all red faced now, big and very kind words 🙂 I hope your new week started equally well 🙂 With hugs – Maja...

Live recording of some of my latest songs

Just before Christmas break last year, I went to a mini home studio of a pianist & composer Simon Wallace & recorded live takes of some of my latest songs. You can listen to this humble playlist on https://soundcloud.com/petal-music/sets/live-london-dec-2014  You can find lyrics to each of the song in the description of the link. Luckily, I managed to have an Essex based photographer & videographer (& a bass player) & another Simon film me & create mini videos for each song. There is more to come very soon 🙂 Enjoy Thank you for listening 🙂 Maja (Petal)...
