So I guess you can call this entry ‘The LDN Edition’ as I spent the most part of last week back home in LDN…business & a lil pleasure!
As I mentioned in my last entry, I definitely had my reservations about going back to LDN during the week directly following the riots that were in full effect.
It was definitely fair to say that the tension could be felt from boarding the plane, right through to landing & whilst in the Customs Hall at the airport…I think the shock of what had happened/was still happening across the UK was only just beginning to really sink in. Madness..
A couple of days after my last entry, I had great show with my band at Pez Azul for the second time this Summer…great fun!
THURSDAY 11TH AUG – PEZ AZUL (San Jose)
If he’s happy, I’m happy…
My team doing their thing…
Pure anticipation from this point onwards!…
4 DAYS IN LDN!!
Couldn’t wait to see my best friend & phenomenal singer – Natasha Carver
An absolutely incredible moment…an original piece…
Adam Barker is a beast on the piano!! Y’all ain’t ready! UK STAND UP!! 🙂
Wagamama’s & a catch up with my Soulful sister Tasita D’Mour
Sherryl Blu is the truth! I had a laugh & a great interview! (podcast to follow…)
Final view of LDN!…Smh…
After a 2hr delay, we had finally taken to the sky…
Was feeling mash by this point!
The 2hr delay meant that I was cutting it fine for my show…STRESSED!!
THURSDAY 18TH AUG – GULA (Almerimar)
Had to get changed in the car…literally!!
Love it really though! All in the name of the game 😉
What an AMAZING show!! Had so much fun!
Thanks Gula, see you in two weeks!!
FRIDAY 19TH AUG – BAR TROPIC (Roquetas De Mar)
My mum & her girls (Elkie & Claudine) doing their thing on the dancefloor! 🙂
My lil man & the boys doing their thing…
Family fun…looking forward to my next show there on Fri 26th!
SAT 20TH AUG – LA BOHEMIA (Aguadulce)
I must admit, here in Almeria, when the publicity is right, IT’S RIGHT!!
Whoop whoop!! Gador (who has been to no less than 10 shows) was getting into the QueenBrit spirit! 🙂
Gone 4 in the am & the HEAT!! Love it!! 🙂
SUN 21ST AUG – CIBELES (Almeria)
Cibeles was party town when we arrived! With the Feria happening on the streets & from club to club, the atmosphere was ELECTRIC!!
It was NECESSARY!
All in all, I had a great week…had a laugh, caught up with friends…handled some exciting business & as a result, a few more people now know who QueenBrit is…so grateful.
THROWBACK OF THE DAY
‘Love Don’t Live Here Anymore’ – Rose Royce
This one came to mind on Sunday morning whilst I was in chill out mode!…
A QUICK UPDATE…
So, those of you that read regularly know that this is usually where you find my ‘5mins 2 Shine’ segment! This is where I feature one person (occassionally two!) & promote their movement. I like to call it a platform of expression for anyone who is doing something positive.
For a complete look at all those that have been featured on my blog thus far click >>> HERE <<< (there’s some good ones!!)
If YOU would like a feature, I’d love to hear from you…drop me a line >>> firstname.lastname@example.org <<<
Thanks to all of you that have given me & my readers your time…I appreciate the insight into your world. Back next entry with another exciting read…wait til you see some of the interviews coming up! 😉 Much love xxx
In the next two weeks I will be releasing the final SINGLE before the album drops in it’s entirety…can’t wait!
I just tweeted yesterday: “The beauty of being a Songwriter is that you can ALWAYS hear the full story in a song… If you LISTEN…” & I believe that wholeheartedly. The full story (about ‘that’ chapter of my life) has already been written…I encourage all of my lovers & haters to just listen 😉
The four singles so far are:
“Before I go, can we make this thing alright?…”
“Have you ever loved somebody, but just can’t say how much you really care?…”
“…but now I’m conscious of many forms of fast food…will not succumb to what my senses respond to…”
“If it was upto you, I’d be six feet under, a restless soul confined to night…”
“…no other choice I’m gonna make it…”
You can find my music on ALL MAJOR ONLINE OUTLETS including:
& for my fellow Brits, even Tesco!
Just enter: Carlene ‘QueenBrit’ Graham into the search for the goodies! 🙂
Also, check out my music social sites for some of my unreleased & exclusive material…you might be surprised! 😉
Myspace – for my House & Club cuts! (Approaching 47,000 plays!!)
Reverbnation – for some RnB, Broken Beat & Pop cuts!
YouTube – for behind the scene ‘Making The Album @ Villalobos’ footage & other juice 😉
SO THAT’S IT FOR THIS WEEK Y’ALL! STILL PUSHING ON!
LOOKING FORWARD TO SINGING IN FRONT OF 1,500 PEEPS AT THE ALMERIA FERIA TOMORROW, IT’S GONNA BE OUT OF THIS WORLD! THE SPANISH KNOW HOW TO PARTY & IT’S AN HONOUR TO HAVE BEEN ASKED TO PERFORM!! I ALREADY KNOW THE PICS ARE GONNA BE DOPE! 🙂
