A WORKING WEEKEND…

Hey y´all! Nice weekend? I hope it was Blessed 🙂 Mine? Well I had intended on spending more time with the family then I actually did, if I´m gonna be honest but I have been & will continue to invest as many hours as possible into getting this show on the road…all levels of it…literally. I am thankful that I am able to gain immense pleasure of of doing so at the same time.

The pic? Bjorn has invested in a brand spanking nu DiGiCo SD9 (thanks for the break down Fernando!) desk for the QueenBrit LIVE shows that will feature me &/or a host of top international artists across Spain & Europe.

I have had too many to mention moments of self-doubt in my lifetime (& still have to talk sense to myself a good 10 times a day!) but when you have someone or even better yet a TEAM that believes in you wholeheartedly, the journey becomes that much easier. Thank you.

LIL MAN!!

Lil man doin´ the do!

Lil man doin´ the do!

For those of you that send love to lil man on a daily, here´s a recent pic for y´all! There he go lookin´ like a Quarterback aged 2!! Madness!

Amari is doing great & has adjusted to Spanish lifestyle considerably well, considering it´s only been 5 months. His speech is incredible thanks to Your Baby Can Read & he is ready to start learning Spanish…which means mummy has to spruce up quicktime!! First lesson on Wednesday (fingers crossed!). He loves hangin´ out with Nanna & Daddy-Gee & has become quite popular with the señorita´s around here…all ages too(!)…my lil man doesn´t discriminate when it comes to the ladies…sheesh! 🙂

All in all, he´s Blessed…thanks for the love xxx

STUDIO RUNNINGS…

30 years later!...

30 years later!...


I have to say at this point that it feels GREAT to be working with dad again on our common bond – MUSIC. It´s a bond that was established very early in life…before my 1st memories (based on what mum & dad have told me!). With all of our experiences in the mix & all paths leading to what happens this year (in the musical sense), sharing this with dad is the icing on the cake. Not to mention the amount that I am learning from somebody who has already achieved a Gold & Silver disc for their efforts…#inspired

Ok…so we´re on Day 6 in the studio & this one is called ´Happy Endings´…I had fun making this beat & just as much fun writing it. I was gradually letting go of more & more emotion with each track…I was beginning to feel good again at this point. ´Happy Endings´ deals with stories…scenarios & your ´cliff hanger´ type endings to these stories!! Enjoy 🙂

´Happy Endings´ – Carlene Graham

I appreciate all of your feedback so far on the ´Making The Album @ Villalobos´ snippets…feel free you check out my YouTube channel for musical bits & bobs!! There will soon be an array of my tracks available to purchase directly from my blog…hold tight 😉

´5mins 2 Shine´

1. What do you do & how well do you do it?

Well, what I usually do and/or try to achieve (and think I do quite well) is enjoy life, be happy and try for people around me to do the same. I love my family, my job, my friends & the place where I live…I am happy about that.

2. Where do you foresee yourself 12 months from today?

12 months from today? I hope to be in the same place with the same people doing the same I am doing nowadays.

3. What was one of the most memorable times in your life?

My stay at Tioman Island together with my father – July 1993. Tioman Island is a small island off the coast of Malaysia. Few people live there and few people reach that island when they are traveling. It is quite desolated but the most beautiful and peaceful place I’ve ever been to.

4) Given the resources, what one change would you make in the world & why?

I would get rid of all the money in the world as this is the main cause of today’s problems. We live in a consumption society which is the main reason of poverty, crisis, depression and general unluckiness.

5) What do you think of my daily blog? (Message for my readers)

Your daily blog is to me and I am sure to many people a possibility to dream for a few moments when we have a look into it each day, as the blog is very interesting and we are eager to see what else we will find new the next day. For a moment we get in the body of one of world’s best vocal artists. Congratulations to you and keep on like this !!!!

Steve´s song selection of the day is:

´Let Love Rule´ – Lenny Kravitz
