……I’ve been editing videos!! Might be posting tomorrow… JoyValenciaMusic. I, um, have never done this before. Slightly scared…!
In other news, I’ve been going by just “Joy” for a while… Now that I’m about to post new music, make a facebook page, youtube channel, ustream, etc, I want to make sure people can easily find me. Soooo I decided to throw in my last name. It may remind you of oranges, a city (or soccer team) in Spain, or a city in California where Six Flags is. - Juicy/fresh, beautiful, strong, and full of thrills!! lol
Excited to share that Maria Kanellis’ EP is out today, 4/13! I co-wrote the songs “Alice in Wonderland” & “Sevin Sins” and also did vocal production for Elytron Productions. I had a blast with this project! Maria’s ideas were so creative and fun to dive into.
Maria Kanellis, former WWE Diva, is currently on Celebrity Apprentice airing Sunday nights. She supports The Make-A-Wish Foundation. Click to hear her EP, Sevin Sins on iTunes:
This morning I started a new song… I think right after I took a shower… I was telling Ale about seeing a spider in my sink… later the lyric became ‘a lion in my bed.’ And now it’s 1am, & we’re working on our new song “Don’t Wake the Lion” - yeah, I’ve lost it. I don’t even need a new song. We’re supposed to be finishing the other ones. lol
So today we took the scenic route to the studio… (Topanga & PCH) Stopped off at the beach for a few… Ahhhhhhh
big singing day didn’t turn out so well yesterday. i had a headache that turned into a migraine… i was determined to sing, but it sounded like crap. lol sometimes it’s better to cut your losses & move on. here’s me all bummed out:
Last night I stayed up all hours finishing what’s probably the most beautiful song I’ve ever written called “If You Love Me.” Kindof a tearjerker but also sweet. Ale & I started it on 3/20/10. This night:
(I was laughing at some stupid SNL joke he told me… I think it’s ridiculously funny, so I’m partially laughing at myself here)
So last night after writing most of the song & recording a bunch of vocals, it was after 5am. I brushed my teeth & was about to slip into bed when an idea popped in my head - it was the missing prechorus & chorus to the other song I started 2 days ago! L0vE it when that happens! Pretty rare though. It took all of 5 minutes.
The song is called “When You’re in Love” … yeah I know, I know, another love song? I promise it’s not predictable. More like something out of Pulp Fiction.
