Not too many people know this, but I actually had a very full life as a musician in my teens, traveling around the world performing with world renowned musicians at International Events like the World Series, before focusing all my energy on the visual arts.
When I left music at 18 I was scared of it. Through my 20′s I rarely even listened to music. About 5 years ago I started my journey back into the arms of music by beginning weekly private voice lessons. Even my voice teacher will say it took me over a year just to feel comfortable opening my mouth. There was definitely some deep healing to do with sound.
This year I wanted to nudge into this a little deeper and challenge myself to include sound in this year’s nü Icon Movie creation. Last year we had the luxury of recording Ariel White’s beautiful voice for our theme music. This year, I wanted to be part of the process in some way.
So we included a group recording session during our recent nü Icon Movie Intensive.
Our Rainbow Tribe of nü Icons including Summer McStravick, Alia Melissa Hall, Liz DiAlto, Laura Hames Franklin, Jess Johnson, Ariel White, Jody England, Cora Flora and myself flowed into the vibration of our own unique sound.
There was definitely some divine orchestration happening as we each discovered music and sound vibration to be a strong component of our own Iconic Essence.
Jess Johnson’s unique voice offered strong musical leadership. She became the Heart of the Dragon leading our rhythmic tunes.
Ariel White is a pure channel for sound. It was her beautiful voice that was featured in last years nü Icon theme music. She has been a huge source of inspiration for me personally to reclaim my voice.
Cora Flora’s liquid love sounds ooze with brilliance. It is a true honor to include her radiance in the musical recordings for this year’s nü Icon Movie.
All the nü Icons added their unique magic to the mix. Music is one of those art forms that touches on a deep vibrational level.
I’m not sure how the recordings will turn out, but I know that as an artist there is always an edge to dance on. There is always the next level to stretch into. Music is my edge at the moment. I sense you’ll be hearing more of my voice in the years to come. I’m still a bit shy about it.
Since the visual arts are so easy for me it is humbling to nudge into sound again because I feel all the vulnerabilities that come with tapping into your true soul’s expression. Art in any form is a divine love affair that requires the deepest level of trust. To be able to share the intimate crevices of your being is nothing short of magic.
I look forward to sharing what we created in the upcoming nü Icon Movie. To be released in the Fall of 2014!
It is our Intention to guide and inspire thousands of people to connect with their Iconic Essence and open the door to the next level of their expression.
Share the magic!
