Do you do covers? Because if you do, perhaps you could check out Delta Goodrem's music if you like.

Take care

No, No.. Now I consider myself a big fan of her.. I've already downloaded all her songs and soon I'll buy her album... I'll buy in March.... and she's perfect and she sounds like Vanessa... She's very good.. I've been talking to her lately and she's nice... perfect... I love her now.

:) I'm so happy with the responses I'm getting here...you guys are the best!  It's exciting to find people who are interested in my music.  

The only covers I play currently are Vanessa songs.  I do a sort-of "tribute" at shows, doing a medely of "Ordinary Day," "Twilight," and now I'm going to add "White Houses."

Hmm...never say never, but it doesn't look like I'll be playing in California any time soon.  I'll probably be moving to New York City in a few months, so I'll be playing shows there as much as possible.  I'm visiting for the first time in a month (and also seeing Vanessa-whoohoo!!), so if for some reason I don't like it there, I'll be thinking about moving to LA.    

Nothing's set in stone.  If I had my way, I'd be playing shows in every city in the world.  I wish you could come see me!  Come to Tulsa, lol.  I'm playing here in a couple weeks!

I'm listening to "The Special Two" as I type.  It's GORGEOUS!  I think it's so much better than "He Hears Promise," lol.  But I'm kinda hard on myself.  I think the meaning of the lyrics are similar and that's pretty cool.  I love the lyrics in the chorus of "The Special Two."  Wow.

I'm gonna have to get out more of this Missy Higgins.  Thanks for suggesting her.   :D
Title: Shannon Thomas
Post by: aleera84 on March 02, 2005, 09:21:40 am
Oh shes the love of mine and Scotty's life LOL.
Missy is truely one of the best singer/songwriters in Australia at the moment aswell as Delta (of course).

If you need anyone to send you her songs I could save them onto my computer and send them to you through email or something.
Id be more than happy too =)
Title: Shannon Thomas
Post by: PianoGirl4444 on March 02, 2005, 12:56:26 pm
I'd love for someone to send me a couple of Delta's songs...the reason I couldn't play them on my computer was 'cause I didn't have the right program or something.  I'd simply install it if this was my computer, but it isn't.   :?   If I can play them on Windows Media, then I can hear them.  And I'm SO intrigued!   :D
Title: Shannon Thomas
Post by: B on March 02, 2005, 01:39:51 pm
I'm sure most of us could send you a couple, there are a lot of people around here who <3 Delta.

Yes we <3 Delta (notice my sig, hehe) I wish I could send you some songs but I don't know how  :( I love Missys song Scar tho, that's my favorite.
Title: Shannon Thomas
Post by: Scotty on March 03, 2005, 01:48:00 am
U sound so cool, I :heart: Missy and Delta :!:

I could make you a sig if you would like? Anything in particular?

I'll upload some Delta songs for you when I get home from college.  :D

Delta's Brisbane promotional appearance for AH is on Shannon's b-day :wink: I'm
not sure if any of us attending will be able to get Delta to sign anything other
than AH singles :? I'm hoping they have some 'promotional extras' at HMV :D

I talked to Eve (at Aromatone Records) about the $7.00 S&H 'cause I think it's too expensive too...and she said it's $7.00 BECAUSE of international purchases.  (Because it costs so much to send things internationally.)  So.......I'm thinking about dsitributing the cds myself and not charging quite as much.  If indeed it really is that expensive to ship it out internationally, it might not be brought down a lot.  But we'll see.  I'll do my best!  I just want as many people to get the album as possible!   :D

Would you prefer a copy of Mistaken Identity instead of a single? You get to
send a copy of your CD in return & find out about international S&H costs 8)

I think peeps here forget just how much production of a record influences
the sound of the recording. You have that raw edge to your music - which
hasn't been tampered with in the recording studio - not least in A&M style

Post by: PianoGirl4444 on March 14, 2005, 01:04:16 pm
Awww!  You guys are so sweet.  Thanks for sticking up for me.   :)  

I KNOW Vanessa is on a completely different level than me...I might sound similar due to the fact that she's my biggest influence, however, I realize how much of a gift she has.  I'm still a beginner.  I took piano lessons for years, but didn't start writing my own stuff until about a year and a half ago.  Right now I can only hope that someday I'll be able to write a song as magical and special as every single Vanessa Carlton tune.  

And production helps a LOT, it's true.  My music is definitely frickin' raw right now, lol.  I've run into tons of recording trouble and haven't been happy with anything so far.  I think I sound so much better live.  What makes Vanessa so wonderful is that her raw music is still so incredible, whether it's live or recorded.  

I know I've got a lot of work to do...but if only you could see the progress I've made so far!  I'm getting better--and for me, that's what counts.

Hey Shannon, it's possible to record MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE again but... hmm how can I say? Because it's too short, it's just 2 minutes and some seconds.. And this song is perfect and you could make it with 4 minutes.... well, I think you got to it.. and sorry my English
Title: Shannon Thomas
Post by: PianoGirl4444 on March 15, 2005, 04:58:55 pm
Hmmmm....make it longer? I've thought about that.  But I kinda like it the way it is.  I could add another chorus at the end.  Next time it gets recorded, I'll try that.  'Cause it probably will get recorded again.   :wink:

p.s.  a brand new recording of "Not Below You" is coming soooooon.  Full instrumental!!

Your potential has certainly been recognised by fans here and I'm sure the
inspiration of meeting VC in NY will open a world of possibilities for you *hug*

Hmmmm....make it longer? I've thought about that.  But I kinda like it the way it is.  I could add another chorus at the end.  Next time it gets recorded, I'll try that.  'Cause it probably will get recorded again.   :wink:

p.s.  a brand new recording of "Not Below You" is coming soooooon.  Full instrumental!!


Nicee... I'm so crazy to hear it... Tell me when it comes out

Sorry about the lack of updates. Things have been terribly busy. But good news -- The Something I Believe In Compact Disc S/H fees have gone down from 7.00 to only 3.00 in the USA and to 6.00 outside of the USA. So purchase the CD while it's still in stock. There are only about 50 copies left.


I felt so happy when I read it because
It means that THE SOMETHING I BELIEVE IN will be in the future a rare album and I'll be the only Brazilian to have it...

I got to meet Vanessa last night @ her Clifton Park show.  (I won a meet and greet on ebay.)  I'm more inspired than ever!!  She's so frickin' incredible.  There just are no words.  Anyway, head on over to the "Live Shows" section and look at the Clifton Park (review) thread to see the pictures my boyfriend took, including the one of me w/ Vanessa!!   :D

you don't wish to reach for the Kleenex first up, don't start with track 7 :cry:

Indeed, "The Road to Goodbye" is sorta depressing.  That's its point.   :D   The first time I played it for my best friend, Caitlin, she cried like a baby.  LOL.  

I'm really proud of that song.  I mean, it's totally simple, but I like some of the lyrics a lot.  I used the theme of traveling throughout the entire thing and it seems to have worked nicely.  

And it's sooooo fun to sing!  I played it live for the first time a couple weeks ago.  It was cool.   :)

After I saw Aarons post this morning before leaving to go to college I decided to listen to the cd in the car on the way there to. It's definitely a driving cd. And I loved listening to The Road To Goodbye in the car. I don't know why, I just did.

Oh & Shannon, on a totally different subject I've been meaning to ask. Do you have sheet music for your songs? I don't know how hard they are to play but I wanted to give it a try, lol.

Post by: PianoGirl4444 on April 06, 2005, 02:42:05 pm
It's kinda tricky to try to explain all this, esp. the bridge.  So I'm holding off on the bridge until you guys learn what's here.  You'll have to figure out the riffs yourself, but this will at least give you a starting off point.  I hope it helps!!  I think it's awesome that you want to learn my song(s)!  

OK.  So "Collide" goes something like this...

Key of D.  

Chords:  
   verses:  D (D,F#,A)/ A (C#,E,A)/ (B,D,F#)/ (B,C#,E)
   chorus:  right hand--G (G,B,D)/ (F#,A,D)/ Em (E,G,B)/ G (G,B,D)
             left hand--(octaves) B........D...........E.............G


 :? I hope I didn't just make it more difficult than it already was!  lol

I'm still waiting the album but that's OKAY..

I heard " A road to goodbye " and fell in love with it..
It's a nice song.. And my mother said " Oh, I've never heard this song before, it's a new Vanessa Song "

My mother loves Vanessa, though she doesn't understand English, she loves her.. and She always thought that " MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE " was Vanessa.... ahhaah...

And I said " No, mom.. she's Shannon THomas another perfect singer as Vanessa "...

Now she likes you and she's already nervous with me because of the album that doesn't get to us... Now she wants it more than never

And " I guess that you were thinking of THE CALLING when you played COLLIDE.. DOn't know why, I can be wrong, but the start/beginning of the song reminds me THE CALLING

Another thing.......  Choose one song to be played at the radios... Choose what you wanted to be played...

Oooh, a new version! I really liked the old version, this not as much. The electric guitar sounded a little messy and everything didn't blend together as perfectly as the original. It's good though, don't get me wrong. I like the drums on this one better.

Just curious, but what is the highest note that you can hit? I'm gonna guess C, but I'm not sure.

That's not expensive. Here in sweden an album cost like 170 kr (25 usd). It's sick that it's cheaper to order from the states then go and buy a album in the stores:P

I will order it tommorrow. And im a 100% shore i will love it.
Any chance to get the album signed when i order?:P

Post by: PianoGirl4444 on April 21, 2005, 11:42:11 am
"Missing Out" is new.  The others, not so much.  I've only played "Sacred" live once--it's a little strange...and "Invisible Life" was one of the first songs I wrote and you'd be able to tell if you heard it.  lol.  But I love the lyrics, so that's why they're up there.  I don't know if I'll ever play it live or record it.  We'll see.  I change my mind all the time.   :?

That reminds me, I need to put up at least 3 more songs on the lyric page:  "Never Too Much" (my stalker song), "Quite Alone," and another new one I just finished called "Catastrophic."  

Maybe I'll do some shitty recordings of them and just send them personally to those of you who really want to hear 'em.   :wink:

Yeah, I was gonna say "Rinse," but you got there first.  haha  

NEVER TOO MUCH
Why do they say
It's not a beautiful thing
How can you walk away from me
Do I see too much

Are you afraid of what I know
Afraid that I photograph your soul
When will you lighten up
'Cause love is never too much

I might be outside your window
Is that not okay
Just wanted to say hello
Why does that scare you away

Are you afraid of what I know
Afraid that I am taking notes
When will you loosen up
I just want to touch you

Why do you say
It's not a beautiful thing
Do you not see
That compared to me nobody else will ever care

Are you afraid of what I know
Afraid that I'm some kind of foe
When will you realize
I'm no one to fear
And when will you loosen up
I just want to touch you
When will you lighten up
'Cause love is never too much
Love's never too much

I'm listening to the new version of "not below you" the original is better. Like the live version of "twilight" and the album version. the original is always better...sometimes."rose colored shades" is cool.

I'm kinda shocked that people don't like the 2nd version of "not below you"...personally that's the one I think is better.  But that's just me.  

Aaron, I re-recorded the song.  Nobody covered it.  At least...I don't think so.  lol   :wink:

I'm sooooooooooo confused.  Nobody said anything about "Sleepless Dream."  

All he meant was the original version of "Twilight" (by Vanessa) is better than other versions (by Vanessa).   I mean, I THINK that's what he meant.   :lol:

Hey now!  There's no reason for that! :razz: Seems like the biggest problem for most of the people in the contest is the luck-of-the-draw competition they're thrown in.  You have to admit, Dido is a pretty strong contender.  In single-elimination, an entrant that could easily defeat everyone but the #1 record-holder can lose out in the first round if they happen to be playing #1.  What I really want to know is who compiled the seeding for this tournament. :?
Title: Shannon Thomas
Post by: PianoGirl4444 on June 20, 2005, 11:54:37 am
Well, I didn't expect to beat Dido, but you're right--I think I could beat some of the other musicians that'll end up making it to round 3 just 'cause of the luck of the draw.  But it's really no big deal.  Some awesome artists got kicked out in the FIRST round, so that's just how it goes.  

Oh well!   :)

I told you I'd send you a copy for free, didn't I?   :wink:

Ok, here's the deal.  I wrote this thing out a couple weeks ago to post on my website....but it's taken longer than I expected to get it posted.  It explains everything:


----------------------------------------
"After MUCH consideration, I've decided to basically stop selling my cd.  It's a long story, but here's the jist:  I wasn't ready to record an album when I made this cd.  It was my first attempt at recording and I did a lot of it myself (actually ALL of the music, which, in my opinion, turned out great--until I took it somewhere to finish and ran into some major problems)*.  Anyway, I knew the recordings turned out kinda bad, but it was no big deal (to me) because I did it all for so cheap.  The decision to release it as an "album"  was stupid, but I did it 'cause I wanted SOMEthing to hand out at shows, something people could hang on to so they would remember me.  I spent a lot of money on the cd art and duplication, which was a HUGE mistake!  I was just getting ahead of myself...what bothers me NOW (more than anything) when I think of "The Something I Believe In" is how much I hate the vocals!  I have improved so much over the past year, so those recordings of my voice are pretty embarrassing.  SO.  The bottom line is I don't want to sell a cd I'm not proud of.  I don't want to have to apologize about the quality of it.  I don't want people to think this is the best I can do.  Because it isn't--believe me!  (Check out www.myspace.com/shannonthomas and listen to the new version of "Not Below You."  You'll see what I mean.  I've already made some progress!)  If you would like a copy of "The Something I Believe In," I will not charge you as of NOW.  You can email me (CHERIO4444@aol.com) if you want to request a cd (for a souvenir or something since there's just 100 copies in this world, haha).  Hopefully you will hear some potential in the album--that is all I ask.  Remember those were the first songs I ever wrote!  If you've already purchased it and you're thinking, "Hey!  That's not fair!" let me know how I  can make it up to you.  I can send you a disc of some newer, better songs if you'd like.  We can work it out.  I want to build a solid fan base.  I just don't think that selling this cd is the way to go about it.  Please give me your feedback!  Your thoughts and opinions really matter to me.  Thanks!

*Shannon*

*The problems I'm referring to did not occur @ Aromatone Records.  ;o)  They did their job just fine!"
-----------------------------------------

So, anyway, I hate my vocals so much on those recordings that I can barely listen to it w/o throwing myself off a bridge.  (Sorry if I'm being overdramatic, but I'm just trying to make my point.)  I'm very proud of the songs that are on there, though.  I still play several of them at shows.  I just don't know what to do about it...except record some new stuff and make a new, awesome album.  And this time I will do it RIGHT!

welllllllllllllllll....I don't own the album, but I would like to say...

You made it, it's your art, you can do what you want.  However, as you get older, and your art matures, fans want to see your progression and how you evolve.  I would say most artists feel like you do when they look back on their older work...but that marks a period of your life...where you were at.  It reflects where you were at developing yourself, and, when you look back, you will see how you have grown.

Anywho, the best of luck to you, no matter what you decide!

Post by: B on July 20, 2005, 03:44:06 pm
Thanks for explaining. When you first said what you said, it made me go 8O.

As a listener, I could definitely hear your potential when I listened to the CD. Finding artists with potential is something that definitely intrigues me, especially with indie music. I always try to gauge whether it seems like an artist has career potential or not. If it doesn't jump out to me that they do, other than checking out their music I usually won't make much of an effort to promote them, etc.

As a fan, and as you get new fans, it would be nice for them to have the CD, kind of how we all geek for the VC demo tapes even though we know her vocals weren't great on those at all.

And from the newer versions of the songs, I definitely noticed that your vocals have progressed nicely.

I think it would be cool if you put together a disc of the newer songs and sent it to peeps who wanted it. I'd take one :wink:.

Overall though, people who like you will support you through anything, and will accentuate the positives of the music in the face of the negatives.

For anyone else interested in getting your hands on a copy of my not-so-pefect recordings, PM me your address.  I've decided I'm just going to charge $2 for US citizens and $5 for everyone else--and ONLY if you're getting the album.  It'll cover most of the S&H fees.  If you're just getting the bonus disc 'cause you already have the album, don't worry about it.  I'm just making sure I don't LOSE money because of this.  

 :wink:

Hey, I'm so sorry about it all......  You know, I'm a big fan of you, and I love you so much the same way I love Vanessa... you're perfect...... and I totally disagree with you about what you said.. ok, it's your opinion......

But this album, I think it's one of my favorites..... I listen to it everyday.... I love all the songs, my friends loved all the songs.... it's all so perfect on it..... but if you think it isn't....

Hope you're doing the right thing to yourself......

And I can't imagine a better album than it...
But as a fan, I just can support you...

I just hope you desist of singing... it'd so hard to me.....

But... I'm still waiting that picture of you that you said you'd send to me... :oops:

Bye.. see you around

Shannon, if possible, I'd love to talk to you online, do you have MSN or something? I got so many things to tell you but it's not the same thing posting in a forum....

Well since I dont actually have the CD in hand yet I dont know if I would call myself a "fan" but I like a lot of indie music and support artists I see potential in. I think in time she could be amazing.
Just like Brian said, this is kind of like the Vanessa demo tape stage, a few more years we may have something equivilant of Be Not Nobody in hand.

For me, took only 8 days.......... don't know why
When I buy something from United States, it usually takes 5 weeks...

But Shannon was right

Collide and Don't be beautiful are better now.. Not below you and Rose colored shades are great too

I'm gonna try to play NOT BELOW YOU (new version) at the radios again... don't know if I can do it.... but I'll try

I just listened to some of the tracks on your website and they are REALLY GOOD! I don't think you sound like Vanessa, you have your own unique voice and sound,but you can tell she is an influence. You also sound a little like Jessica Harp, but obviously with piano instead of guitar... Anyway, keep up the good work, you'll go far!

Don't be too alarmed by the US$44 price at that site 8O The value of the CD
singles in the 3-Pack is only US$20.35. What is more significant is the value
of inspiration to a recording artist, who's success is just a matter of time :wink:

Blatant racism. Excessive profanity. Harassment. Being incomprehensible. Continuing to do something after he was told to stop.

It was more for a continued pattern of behavior than any one event. When we warned him that he was a bad boy and was close to being banned, he more or less told us, "screw you."

Nice site, a little consideration for people with slower connections: I'd get rid of the cheesy cursor.  :oops:

Off topic: I'd give people credit for the vanessa carlton sheet music too, unless you asked first.

Just a little update on my *budding* music career... :wink:

I'm currently working with a popular local guitarist, who's helping me put a temporary band together (for playing shows) and also wants to produce my next album.  We are choosing songs, writing more, and getting them ready 'cause the plan is to go into the studio in about a month to begin recording.  Since I'm going full-out with this new album--with drums, bass, guitar, the works!--some of the songs from "The Something I Believe In" will be re-recorded and featured on this disc.  So far it looks like "Not Below You," "Rose Colored Shades," & "Don't Be Beautiful" will make the cut.  Other tracks will include "Collide," and new tunes like "Edward, "Asleep," & "Jaded."  I know you guys don't know those songs...but you WILL!  

I'm so excited!   :D

Could that be the same popular local guitarist that has a thread here (http://forums.nessaholics.com/viewtopic.php?t=7906) already?

No, but I'm still working with him, too.  This other guy is WAY more popular here, although Connor has had a different kind of success.  The new guy, A.J. is a better guitarist.  He's a decade older than Connor and just way more experienced, but they're both great songwriters and performers.  

 :D   I'm a lucky gal!

The guitarist is producing my upcoming album--he's awesome.  He's also going to play on the recordings.  I went to high school with the drummer and he's going to play on the album too.  A.J.'s a great songwriter...he wrote the song on their myspace page, "Winnin'," as well as most of the songs the band played with their former singer:  http://www.myspace.com/fridgebuzz ...he's already written 1 song just for me (called "Jaded") and we co-wrote a song called "Asleep."  Fridgebuzz is one of the most popular bands in Tulsa, so I'm excited to be working with these guys.

I had a dream I was at a Shannon Thomas concert and she had the chords for Don't Be Beautiful on the piano. I don't think they're right.
Bb, Cmin7, Bb, F7
Maybe I'll use them. :)

Post by: PianoGirl4444 on September 10, 2005, 10:54:31 am
Yeah, those aren't right.  lol.  It's funny that you had a dream about it, though.  

If you just want simple chords for the song to help you figure it out, they are:  Am, C, F, G...the base notes keep playing that progression throughout the entire song.  Well, except for the bridge, which builds up like this:  C, D, F, G...before going back into that same progression, only an octave higher.  

 :D

I know a lot of you are really good at piano, so I'm sure you can figure it out.

Thanks, I figured it out. Interesting choice of the C chord in the progression since my ears told me it should be G... I'm using C though it was just a leading note. Awesome stuff. Is it a D or D minor in the bridge? (D, F# A being D and D, F, A being D minor). It sounds like Dm to me but I could be wrong..

Are you feeling any better?  :?:

Hello all...

To answer your questions:

1)  Yes, it's Dminor in the bridge of "Don't Be Beautiful."  (C, Dm, F, G)...sorry if I forgot to put the "m."  Whoops!
2)  Yes, I'm feeling better now.  Yay!
3)  Unfortunately I don't have sheet music for any of my songs.  I can post chords for MTMTE if I haven't already...

And on another note...I think I'm going to post a poll on here really soon on what my next move should be.  I feel quite stuck in many ways and need to figure out what direction to go in.   :?

That's pretty close to right...it's hard to explain the difference in writing, though.  Basically the right hand is also playing whatever the left hand is playing on every single note...for example, the first "chord" is:

Right hand:  
AGF AGF
DDD DDD

Left hand:    
D-hold-DDD (octaves)

You see?   :wink:

Well, now I start right at the beginning of the first verse.  The intro used to be D A D A (2x), but now it's not there.  Here's the chords:

Verses:
G, Bm, A, Bm (4x)

Prechorus:
G, A, Bm, A (3x)
G, A, (A#, C#, F#)--don't know that chord's name

Chorus:
D, A, D, Bm, A (2x)
Bm, A, G, A (2x)

D, A, D, A (2x)

Bridge (my favorite part):
Bm, (A#, C#, E), G, A --don't know that 1 chord's name

End:
D, A, D, A...

Hope this helps!  I typed it in kinda a hurry, so if it doesn't seem right, let me know.  Note:  I use different inversions of some of the chords, so I hope you can figure it out.  

p.s.  I'm going to be recording this song yet AGAIN very soon with a full band.  Yay!

I'll probably take down a few of the songs on my webiste intentionally sometime soon, so I'm not too worried about it.  If you really want "Rose Colored Shades" I can send it to you via email or something.  It's no biggie.

Oh God, PLEASE don't get your hopes up like that!  I warned you about the quality of the album.  !!   :!:  :!: !! :!:  :!:

Music is music dude(ette)  :D I'm itching to hear the melodies for the songs I've been reading lyrics for. And it's totally worth the $6 or whatever. When and if you get famous I won't leak it to others... a la nessa demo tape  8)

hehe, actually it would be pretty funny...'cause if I were "famous" (aka:  on a major label) I'd have MUCH better recordings and those old ones would be even MORE embarassing!  But it wouldn't matter 'cause the good recordings are what people would know me for.

But tell me this:  If your fans started begging to hear some old song that you've long considered "out" (a la "Superhero" or "All I Ask"), would you refuse to play it, claim to have forgotten how to play it, or would you give in to your fans? 8)

So... my speakers still aren't working but I was so curious to hear the new song I went into my parents' office & listened on their computer lol. Anyways, the new song is great! I LOVE it. I even tried adding it onto my myspace but the add songs feature isn't working.. blah.

And btw, I love The Something I Believe In even if you think the older recordings are "embarassing".. I don't think that at all & still don't get why you do lol.

I always wrap the bonus discs that way...I think it's quite clever.  Works pretty well, huh?   :wink:   I've got a couple others like that too, including my unreleased Vanessa recordings...all wrapped up in cute little Nessa pics.   :D  8)

Worked for me :wink: I sent Shannon 3 CD singles and protected them from skitch-
ing each other by wraping 2 of the 3 in crepe paper. I think I even used blue :P

btw... I absolutely intended for them to arrive on my b-day; I love the irony *hug*

Oh, I don't know...the bonus disc has kind-of evolved from the beginning...you can download "More Than Meets the Eye" on my website (I think).

Brilliant Shannon 8) Almost as exciting as opening the package from you that
arrived here yesterday; I didn't open it any earlier, b/c I spent most of Friday
trying to arrange a vehicle to replace my pick-up, which finally gave up on me
after some 5½ years and with 232 875 Miles on the Odometer. Made my day!

Thank you so much for the bonus disc - I've put it in your other jewel case so
its safe. I feel so spoilt having a pair of CD sleeves signed by an artist who is
about to take a significant step in their career; all the best with the new stuff
and the F.L.A. Inspired enough to create a new SIG in Corel PhotoPaint 12  :wink:

P.S. http://groups.myspace.com/shannonthomas I had some free time since i'm on break. hope everyone joins. I invited about 5 pages of your friends list so far, so hopefully this group will get bigger soon lol. I'll work on trying to get more people in it from groups i'm in for the rest of them.

Whoo-hoo!!!!  Thank you!   :D

Just so you know (no pun intended), I just now uploaded "Rose Colored Shades" on MySpace--Everyone go check it out!

Tonight I recorded "Don't Be Beautiful" and it should be done by next week.   :wink:   It sounds awesome.  The guys I'm working with said it's their favorite so far (and BY FAR)--one of them even said he got goosebumps.   :)

^Ah that is hard to choose. I really like the new version of Rose Colored Shades, but Edward & One or the Other are cool songs too, so I can't pick haha. Edward would make a cool single tho :)

Post by: Jophess on January 13, 2006, 04:21:16 pm
Don't Be Beautiful is my favorite p/v song, so I can't wait for the studio version!

Out of the four new tracks, One or the Other is my favorite. Followed by Edward. Then Rose Colored Shades. Then Just So You Know. Can't wait for Don't be Beautiful
Title: Shannon Thomas
Post by: Laura on January 13, 2006, 04:26:38 pm
Yeah Don't Be Beautiful is my all time favorite song. Looking forward to the studio version as well.

Shannon, I just had an idea. I went to post about you on the promosquad.com message board... it's a pretty popular music site & fans get to rate music from a variety of artists. And there's this thing I totally forgot about called "get famous" (kind of similar to idolunderground, but better) where you can submit an artist who you think is gonna be big & you have a chance to make it to the jukebox, be on the get famous section & a chance to get signed to a label.

But we have to upload your song & since I don't have any of them downloaded, I thought i'd post it here incase you or someone else wanted to do it. I dunno why i've never thought of this before cuz i've been going to this place forever. http://home.promosquad.com/getfamous.php
Title: Shannon Thomas
Post by: PianoGirl4444 on January 26, 2006, 04:07:17 pm
Ooh!  I love this idea.  Will you do it for me?  I will make a song available to download (I've been kinda wanting to anyway--at least for a little while)...do I just choose ONE song?  Let me know.   :wink:  :D
Title: Shannon Thomas
Post by: Laura on January 26, 2006, 06:57:59 pm
Yay glad you like the idea. And sure, i'll do it for ya. You just pick one song, preferably what you think is your best song. Like Edward or something. And it says to upload a picture that must be less than 1 MB so if you wanted to post one that I can use, that'd be cool.  :)
Title: Shannon Thomas
Post by: Si_duffers! on January 27, 2006, 01:59:14 am
Yeah making a song available for d/l is wise nowadays, i've only heard them a few times because i can only listen to them if i'm on the computer at home as my laptop doesn't have speakers but if they were on my mp3 player like your first album i could go to town!
Title: Shannon Thomas
Post by: PianoGirl4444 on January 27, 2006, 06:57:02 am
The only real problem with allowing one to be d/l now is they're not mastered yet...well, they ARE, but I'm pretty sure I'm going to send them off to be redone by somebody who just focuses on mastering.    

I just can't decide what to do.  Obviously, you want people to have the best available recording!

One of them said you had a pretty voice & my mom even liked you which is shocking cuz she hates everything I like. She was all "she sounds like Vanessa" haha. So yea, just thought i'd share.

I feel bad.  I always get myself into situations like this...

You see, Laura wanted to help promote me on a certain website, so I gave her a link to some MP3s 'cause that's what it took to enter the contest she wanted to put me in (or whatever you want to call it).  Since then, I've added "Don't Be Beautiful" to that particular list of MP3s & she found it~she's so clever.   :wink:  

However, don't be angry with me!!  I will post "Don't Be Beautiful" here tonight:  www.purevolume.com/shannonthomas

Now you will all be able to hear it.  Hope you guys enjoy!   :D

There's no official release date yet, but I'm shooting for early May.  Sorry it keeps getting pushed back.  I'm sure you guys are used to it, though.  lol.  I just have to be realistic about it.  I don't even know who I'm going to have help me with the cover art yet...& I don't know what company I'm going to use for duplication.  These things take time.  Once they get rolling, though, & I choose the best option in each case, everything will be done quickly.   :wink:

Oh, and p.s.:  The official site is going to be re-designed.  I can't wait!!

>...& here's the description Aaron mentioned:  

"Just So You Know" is about worthless relationships that I have witnessed (from afar), but never been a part of. The couple in the song have no reason to be together--they fight a lot & have nothing in common. I put a little bit of myself into the narrator, although I've never found myself in her position. I guess it's just what I would do if I were her.

Just thought I'd share!

Peeps really appreciate the background info; at the very least you can expect
any of our artisic creations to convey much more depth of meaning :wink: My JSYK
SIG element requisition started with the code flag below.  "Making no way" as
Mike indicates, parallels cirumstances with a much similar warning required 8)

As for the straight forward SIG elements I'm favoring these chorus lyrics now;

And just so you know
Oh, I never wanted to stay
You're someone who can try
But you can't make me high anymore
You're not what I'm lookin' for

My boyfriend's always saying how much he likes "Just So You Know," but I fear that a lot of people would find it cheesy.   :lol:   It's good to know that song is finding more & more fans!   :wink:   I actually don't think it's cheesy at all, especially not the lyrics, but it is VERY "pop."

Its more an issue of an emblem distinctive enough to capture the attention of

of marketing incorporates animal icons successfully. I've used Squirrels before
but this is much more about a promotional dynamic that's being under-utilised

ALWAYS NEVER: If I keep waitin’ for you like I’ve done before/ Will you walk out the door as I’m comin’ in/ Rivers of people curl, will I see through the swirls/ If it’s a small world, how do I miss you// Pre-chorus: Always, always, it never works out/ Never, never, I’m always in doubt/ You always never do care about the one you can’t see/ I might as well be make believe// Chorus: I’m dreamin’ of impossible stuff/ I need you too much, oh but that’s what love does/ I’m fighting with fate, always on your tail/ It never does any good/ I used to think it would// & if I don’t hold back, will you see where I’m at/ Oh, will you get here fast or leave me hangin’/ Feelings become a pest, I just forget the rest/ I have become a mess & I keep thinkin’/ Pre-Chorus// Chorus// & now I’m slowly findin’ out fairytales are purely fictional/ What made me think if I could just scream loud, I would never be the one you can’t see/ I might as well be make-believe//

I live in Oklahoma & my career is getting off to a pretty slow start (this place doesn't really support original artists), so I haven't toured yet.  I'm going to see how well this album sells & go from there.  I need to be doing something differently, but I don't know what.  

I actually have my first out of state show on June 10th.  I'll be playing in St. Louis.   :)

I'd say!... I'm pretty bad at guessing how many people there are in a room if you know what I mean? Like if I saw all the people at a sports stadium in a line, i'd guess a million... But this was prolly 300... I'd say 100 sitting and well maybe it was more like 150 then! Still it was really nice :D

Post by: PianoGirl4444 on June 17, 2006, 01:05:55 pm
It was grey & I want it black - in the files I gave them it's so obviously BLACK!!  And the grey badly clashes with the tan color of the rest of the artwork.  It's ICKY.   :(

^Not yet, unfortunately.  Since I feel so bad about the delays of the album, I put up a couple new songs on myspace, namely "Collide."  I think you guys will like the new version...& hopefully it'll tide you over 'til the album finally freakin' comes out.   :wink:

I wouldn't say *everyone*.  lol.  But I appreciate the support I do get.  

FYI, I played @ Diversafest (a local music festival) last night & it went very well!  Someone from our local newspaper approached me & wants to review my cd, so I'm pretty excited about that.  Plus, the crowd was much better than usual.  We filled the small venue up & everyone was paying attention (which is not always the case, unfortunately, lol).  It was only my band's 3rd show together, but I noticed a huge improvement.  AND I might've found a guitarist!  Whoo!

I am sooooooooooooo PISSED @ the duplication company right now.  The discs did not come in yesterday, like they promised.  Turns out, everyone who was working on my project was either fired or quit within the past few days.  Now they don't even know where my project IS!!!!  My boyfriend is supposed to hear back from them today.  I will keep you guys updated.  

Mostly I'm pissed because I think this makes me look bad in front of my fans, who are probably sick of hearing the "excuses" for the album's delay.  

:evil:      

I hope you guys understand...& if you ever record an album, DON'T USE OASIS MANUFACTURING for your duplication.  Ugh.

Unbelieable sounds amazing!
I was reading the lyrics when shannon posted it on her blogs in myspace.. i was like: That song is gonna be a bomb!... I absolutly love it

Chorus is my fav part!


Let's work it out
Think where we began
Let's let it end
When it wants to end
Things have progressed
Far from nothingness
I am impressed with how far we've come

Chorus:
Don't stop a good thing
I love what's happening
What we have is so unbelievable
Don't stop a good thing
I love what's happening
What we have is so unbelievable

One or two problems
That are so very small
Give love the credit
'Cause we're not in control
This kind of feeling
It doesn't have to be rational
I've gotta confess we've progressed over time

Repeat Chorus
Higher forces waiting for us to melt
Magnetizing the unlikely
11 courses into this lovely feast
And I'm still hungry

Repeat Chorus
:D

Well, just think how much we Nessaholics love that scratchy little tape that Vanessa made at her piano so many years ago... :D

I actually kinda like digging up the old stuff.  It reminds me of when you were just starting to write stuff and record a demo for us all to hear.  It's the stuff that caught my attention and got me to tune in.  But consider this:  If it weren't for where you've been, you'd be nowhere now. :wink:

But yes, I have 23 tracks of stuff on my MP3 thing right now.  There's actually three different versions each of "Rose-Colored Shades", "Not Below You", and "Don't Be Beautiful", some being over a year old.

Having older tracks to listen back on gives you a really good barometer of how much an artist has grown lyrically, vocally, etc.

No....don't hate me, but I did regular mail.  They said for overseas it would take 7-10 days (not counting all the customs crap they have to go through), so I imagine the U.S. orders should be just a few days.  Maybe you will get it tomorrow.  I hope so!

Sorry I haven't been on here for like four days, but I have been so busy listening to 'Brainstorms' I just haven't had time! ;)  Honestly, I'm not kidding:  I've been working constantly, and it's been the only thing playing in my car the whole time (except when Megan gets in and changes it to country :x ).

Excellent, excellent album!  I'm completely in love with "Another You", "Unbelievable", and Always Never". :D

To my ears, I'm certainly hearing a bit stronger of a Vanessa Carlton influence and a more mature songwriting and singing ability than earlier.  And correct me if I'm wrong, but I started feeling un poco del calor that I usually only get from Shakira in a couple of places. 8O

 :arrow: As for the list of songs I have, all I have is 'The Something I Believe In' CD, a 6-track CD she sent me, and some early versions of "Collide", "Not Below You", "Rose Colored Shades", "Don't Be Beautiful", "Edward", "One Or The Other", "Just So You Know", "More Than Meets The Eye", and a track called "My Hell".

Here's my Brainstorms Review (http://moviereviewsbyjoe.blogspot.com/2006/07/music-shannon-thomas-brainstorms.html).


I didn't enjoy reading that purely because I think what you wrote is rubbish.

But whatever, each to their own and all that.

Umm... could you please explain how what I wrote is rubbish? I, having written it, know that it's a very honest review. Is it rubbish because I didn't give it 100/100? I wouldn't give 2001: A Space Odyssey 100/100. If it were out of 10, I would've given it a 9, which is damn good.

No, you definitely didn't trash it.  But you were honest, which is a good thing, even though (of course) I would not mind hearing from everyone that I am the best singer-songwriter in the history of the entire universe.   :lol:

shannon! just thought i'd tell you i was playing your cd in the car, which my mom usually hates me doing, and i caught her singing along to unbelievable!!! of course she pretended it hadnt happened when i turned to her :lol:


Does she usually hate just MY cd or ALL cds?  Just wondering.   :lol:

That's cool, though.


oops i guess i didnt make that clear. no she has no specific problem with you, she just has this preconcieved idea about my music before she hears it. Like when i put in the wreckers she said "now i could listen to this alright. who is it?" and i said michelle branch cus she would know the name. of course then she was all "ach i dont like HER" haha, see what a crazy she is  :wink:

anyway love the cd shannon, keep it up :D

What is wrong with the review? He says very complimentary things like: "Will someone just give her a record deal, already?"

That's very positive.

"I tend to not enjoy Shannon's music when it's upbeat and happy-sounding."
-just remove the word Shannon and there's my general feeling that I share with many, many listeners and lovers of music.

I haven't heard the CD, so reading the review makes it sound like something I would definitely want to listen to. It doesn't discourage me at all.

We all love Harmonium, and that got some shitty reviews, even though we think it's brilliant. Welcome to the world of art.

'Brainstorms' has made it into my permanent rotation set in my Cadillac.   :D   To put some perspective on what that means, right now in the Caddy alongside it are Vanessa's 'Harmonium' and Anna's 'Wreck of The Day' (2005).

I've been picking out lines in the songs that I find are either very clever or very touching or just strikingly original, and as soon as I can get out a pen and listen over the album again, I think I'm going to jot some of them down and posting them. :D

So far, I'm pretty impressed with the album, some songs have changed/evolved so much from what I heard before.
A couple of songs sounds a bit overproduced to my ears though.
But the whole album sounds really nice.
Keep in mind I only listened to it once. ;)
Final words: congrats Shannon!  :D

What I like about Shannon Thomas:

 :arrow: She has a very beautiful voice that ranges from fine to bold, but never harsh or whiney.  I can literally listen to her all the time.
 :arrow: She can convey a large range of emotion in her voice.  When she sings, it's actually a performance and not just a recitation of lyrics.
 :arrow: She has a very clever originality in her use of words.  Her metaphors often have me wanting to hear a certain line over again and think about the comparison she's implying.
 :arrow: She has a knack for crafting an effective hook.  Virtually every song of hers I've ever heard has found a way to get stuck in my head at one time or another.
 :arrow: She is also very easy to look at, though I still long to see her perform live.

Hi Shannon

I just realised I haven't posted on NH since 5/24! Great such cool feedback is
being posted here for Brainstorms. I still have to get the CD/DVD player in my
TV fixed (I don't have the remote control either as my brother lost it when he
moved to Perth). Hopefully I'll have everything sorted in another month or so


Peace

Lyrics to Intruder?
Title: Shannon Thomas
Post by: PianoGirl4444 on October 09, 2006, 01:38:26 pm
I've lost my vision
You've made me hopeless
And I lie in bed, afraid
And I wonder
Why I can't sleep
And I don't care to dream

Chorus:
Intruder, don't come here
Steal my dreams & birth my fear
Intruder, won't you please leave me alone
Where's my thoughts? You hid them
They're not this nightmarish
And I'm begging you to let go
To let go

My head is clouded
I cling onto sadness
As I witness this eclipse
I must wonder
Why I can't flee
From what isn't really me

Chorus

There's no way that I can escape my mind
There's no way that I can leave behind
The enemy that comes from the inside
I don't have the strength to try
I don't have the strength to try

Intruder, don't come here
Please leave me alone
Intruder, don't come here
I'm begging you to let go

Chorus

Post by: PianoGirl4444 on October 11, 2006, 06:03:00 am
While I am admittedly flattered, you don't know the whole story.  Hopefully what I put out in the world is great...but it takes me awhile to completely finish anything I believe is worth sharing.  Right now I am in the middle of writing several songs that have me stuck.  So in my case, the key to being "amazing" (or perceived as anything close) is knowing when something is good enough to be considered done.  And it does not come easily for me most of the time.  I have confidence issues because it always seems like other artists (like Vanessa) are so much more naturally talented than I am, but I really want to be an inspiration to anyone who's ever felt like an underdog...anyone who wants to do something, but feels like they can't.  I didn't even THINK of trying to write a song until I was about 21 because I didn't think I COULD.  It seemed so impossible.  So it's pretty cool to be able to prove yourself wrong over & over again, one step at a time.  I just want you guys to know that I certainly appreciate your wonderful comments, but anything "amazing" that comes out of me is the result of simply the desire to create something great - no matter how long it takes.

I hope you understand my point.  This is such a long post!  lol

wow well I think I do know what you mean. I mean, I write music too, and it takes /such/ a long time for me to finish a song. I have so many tunes that aren't finished and never will be. But maybe that's the point of art... to find what means something to you and what means something to others. I actually have a song that's just for me.. and that's pretty important. And I don't think writing songs is every easy.. for anyone. I mean I'm sure there are some geniuses, but even vanessa carlton has to run into some obstacles sometimes. The only artist I've heard of who writes music in one sitting is Fiona Apple. I'm sure there are others, but I bet it's pretty rare. The reasons I think you're AMAZING is because what you /do/ put out there for the world to hear is /actually/ admirable. It's not fluff. It really does mean something to US and that's hard to achieve. Most artists (including myself) run into cliches or express themselves withouth conveying any deeper meaning beneath the surface. Does that make sense? You have musical, as well as poetic talent... and then there's something else in between that you have, that most don't. not sure what it is, but keep it up. it rocks! and this has been a very lengthy reply...

A lengthy, but LOVELY response.  I have been telling myself the same thing, but it's nice to hear it from someone else - makes it seem like I'm not just trying to make myself feel better.  The truth is every artist has their own way of creating and there's no right or wrong way to do it.  What's important is that we keep trying 'cause once we put something out into the world that people can appreciate, it is SO COOL.   :D

While I am admittedly flattered, you don't know the whole story.  Hopefully what I put out in the world is great...but it takes me awhile to completely finish anything I believe is worth sharing.  Right now I am in the middle of writing several songs that have me stuck.  So in my case, the key to being "amazing" (or perceived as anything close) is knowing when something is good enough to be considered done.  And it does not come easily for me most of the time.  I have confidence issues because it always seems like other artists (like Vanessa) are so much more naturally talented than I am, but I really want to be an inspiration to anyone who's ever felt like an underdog...anyone who wants to do something, but feels like they can't.  I didn't even THINK of trying to write a song until I was about 21 because I didn't think I COULD.  It seemed so impossible.  So it's pretty cool to be able to prove yourself wrong over & over again, one step at a time.  I just want you guys to know that I certainly appreciate your wonderful comments, but anything "amazing" that comes out of me is the result of simply the desire to create something great - no matter how long it takes.

I hope you understand my point.  This is such a long post!  lol

Yeah, I understand. I've been writing songs since I was... well, since I could talk, but I really thought I was too dumb to play an instrument. Now I play a few (mainly piano and guitar), but I still struggle with doubt because I look up to artists like Nessa, and because I hold them in such high esteem, I feel that I could never be as good as them, musically. I just have to remind myself that Vanessa (or another artist) writes her own fantastic music... but she couldn't write MY music, because nobody can do that except me... and the same applies to you. No-one else can write to express Shannon Thomas' thoughts and feelings, know what I mean? And I have to say that the lyrics for Intruder are cool. I like dark-ish songs!  :D

I just posted a new song called "You're a Ghost" on myspace.  Check it out!!  www.myspace.com/shannonthomas



YOU’RE A GHOST

Passing years don’t count for much
There are ways to keep in touch
Without ever trying
I’m stranded in your presence
You find a way to show your face
Without ever knowing

Chorus:
You’re a ghost, a living ghost
I miss you most when you’re here
You’re a ghost, a living ghost
You’re too well known to ever disappear

Here and there and everywhere
I’ve had more than just my share
I can forget forgetting
There’s the you that I have found
That I know too much about
And yet there’s so much I’m missing

Chorus

Over time nothing dies
Every piece of you is gone, yet you are still alive
I wish I could blame you
I want nothing more than to just be through
With your face
I see it every day

There’s the you that I have found
That I know too much about
And yet there’s so much I’m missing

Chorus

I sign albums, when it's requested.  I'd do it for everyone, but I feel I can't assume everyone would want that.  Some people would probably prefer a "normal" copy.  lol.

And it sounds great. I mean, this is coming from someone who has recorded strings many the times, so I know what sounds real and fake. It sounds very good. I can generally tell right off the bat if strings are real or fake, and I was far from 100% sure, so that's definately a good sign.

Hopefully!!

There was a time I was planning on living there ... but then I got a reality check.  lol

FYI - I've decided not to play at that open mic night in San Francisco, so Laura, you're not missing anything!  (p.s.  I don't think Manuel was trying to be mean.)

did u make a music video?

Phew, finally I can comment the CD here.

Allright, was almost 2 months that I received it, but only now that I graduated, I got time to comment.
It was good, because now I have a more concrete opinion.

The cd is fantastic! I hear it every day and it has not a music what i not liked, in spite of having sickened of hear too much some of them. But nothing that a time without hearing does not resolve.

Is quite characteristic the influence of Vanessa, at the piano of the songs (Always Never remembers the piano of Paradise). A thing that I repaired, is the small quantity of slow songs (like Don't Be Beautiful) and many agitated.

This last point was favorable, since I showed the songs to some of my friends and they adored!!
My favorites are: Don't Be Beautiful (perfect for a situation that I am having now) and One Or The Other (I loved the part of the guitar!! Totally Crazy!!).

Final note: 10.0

I forget what the reason was, but would you be able to send me those songs? if not it's cool, just thought i'd ask cuz I love those songs.

Ditto. I don't have an iPod; just an Imac on loan since the monitor on my PC
decided to pack up shop the day I returned to install Windows XP on the new
Hard Drive! The Imac is just like an oversized iPod for me 'cause I play MP3s
on it all the time. By the way Shannon, I hope you had an awesome Chrissy!

Kind of exciting when I know something about Shannon she doesn't even know herself.  There's a copy on the "prime" section of my shelf right behind me here in my office.  "Prime" is where I keep my absolute favorites, like Vanessa, Shannon, Anna, and a few select albums from other artists.  Darn, now you know. :razz:

As of this posting, it's in fourth place for number of posts among topics in the "Other Musicians" forum, with 991.  The three above it are Delta Goodrem (2030), Michelle Branch (1264), and Evanescence (1191).  Those four by far stand out past the next bunch, with fifth place being Linkin Park with only 471.  Past that, the post counts get closer together.  But unless LP, Ben Jelen (433), or Maroon 5 (404) get a big boost of something to talk about on here, Shannon's likely to stay in fourth, if not eventually overtake Ev or Michelle. :D

It's pushing 4 in the morning.  I'm bored.  I sat here and counted every post in every thread and wrote it down and added them up by hand.

I just flipped through the forum listing and made note of the post counts on each thread (or the reply count, plus one for the original post).  I'm sure there's a query command for that, but since there's only 20 pages, what the hell. :wink:

We're all proud of you. Life is too short and too uncertain not to take risks. People seem to think that being a singer/musician/artist is more of a risk than a regular job (it annoys me when people tell people with artistic dreams to get "real" jobs, lol) but really, how is a "real" job completely secure and certain? People often lose their jobs for reasons beyond their control, eg. companies go bust, companies downsize, workers get replaced by younger (and therefore cheaper) people or even machines, etc. People also get sick, or injured, or die suddenly....
I'm not being negative; my point is that pursuing your passion isn't really as big a risk as it may seem.... and sometime soon, you will have that wonderful, transcendent moment in which you will know beyond the shadow of a doubt, that you did the right thing, and that you are fulfilling your destiny.

Good luck, Shannon xx

I have a question. If you were really inspired to write some sort of provocative song, meaningful, but maybe a little on the "foxy" side, would using "foxy" pictures for promotion of the song then be rational?... Just curious about the artist's point of view.

No, Manuel is "medic0803"!   :lol:   For furture reference, my boyfriend's name is Curtis.

I actually just finished a song about sex a couple weeks ago ... but it's pretty vague, nothing too provocative.  

As for the photos, I have my own boundaries for how far I would go.  I don't want to have a completely prude image, but I'm not the type to pose for Maxim.

That sounds like a page right out of ABBA's playbook.  A lot of their compositions never made it to tape because if one didn't stick with them or they grew tired of one to quickly, they trashed it and went on to something else.  They rarely if ever wrote down or recorded something if they couldn't remember it, because if it didn't stay with them, they figured it wouldn't stay with anyone else either.

In my opinion, they sound good enough to not need to be re-done... but I know major labels like everything done their own way. It should happen one day! (Hopefully in the not-too-distant future!) Will watch the video of YAG as soon as I can use a computer that it will work on, lol.

I was SO nervous at my last show (the one you see in my latest videos)...my boyfriend said he couldn't tell, but unfortunately I'm not as "into" it as I'd like to be.  Other than that, I got through it, despite the nervousness.  It was annoying, though!

Hmm...we'll see.  "Collide" was actually inspired by "White Houses."  Perhaps I will put them in the same video, only playing a clip of "White Houses," since I don't know how to play the bridge.  In any case, I'll be sure to put "Collide" up soon.   :wink:

Here are the lyrics:

I used to be scared that nothing would change
I was afraid of everything tame
It's all I knew and it's all the same
I'm still afraid

I used to light up at the thought of
Something to love, what was to come
I still have hope, but it doesn't grow
Soon it will fade

Chorus:
Climbing a staircase to the bottom floor
Tempted to wish I could forget what matters most to me
Locked in a room filled with open doors
Focused on the one that is closed
No one's letting me inside
I just try and try to think of multiple endings
Always asking why I need
More than what I have

I used to have time, is it too late?
I let my life get in the way
If I let go now, I'd be ashamed
I'd be ashamed

Chorus

I used to dream
I used to know what I would be

Chorus

Rockin' Guitar Solo

I have 4600 "friends" on myspace, but only interact with a small percentage of those people on a regular basis.  As a semi-struggling musician, I'm looking for ideas on how to continually increase my fan base.

SO.  I need to know what works for you!      

What makes you a true FAN of an artist?  Is it just the music or is it also something else?  What keeps you coming back for more?  Videos, blogs, updates, pictures...?  Do you listen mostly to artists/bands who are signed with a label?  What kind of merch do you buy, if any?  Do you like it when musicians advertise on your page - or do you consider it spam?  Are you into your local music scene?  Do you prefer to buy entire albums or individual tracks?  Do you think music is fairly priced?  How do you discover new artists/bands?

Any input will help!  If you have an opinion, I'd like to hear it.  Feel free to go above & beyond those specific questions...they are just examples of the sort of things I'd like to know.  

Thank you!

<3 Shannon

Shannon, I left a comment on your latest YouTube video. I like the song.

As for helping you with that... I only consider myself a fan of two or three bands/singers which are not signed to a major label (you being one...) I really base my fan-ness on the quality of music. It also helps to have a CD to look forward to. The anticipation is a sometimes frustrating, sometimes rewarding part of being a fan.

Post by: me and my piano---tim on May 16, 2007, 01:29:54 pm
I'm really only a diehard fan of vanessa. Until recently I just hung around the boards when an album was about to come out or something. I really like reading posts from vanessa herself, that's what keeps me coming back.  As for your questions... I listen to pretty much any type of music, signed or unsigned... although I do prefer to listen to music that has many layers of production.  I don't really buy merch unless it's a poster. I like it when musicians advertise, actually... it's hard to keep on top of all the new news in the music scene, so it's helpful when the band lets you know when they're next album's going to be out or whatever. I'll but the whole album if I like the artist all around. I'll only buy the inidividual song of one-hit wonders and random party songs usually. I absolutely do not think music is fairly priced at the major label level, but I understand when indie musicians need to make money. Hope this helps  :D

So, since then, I can't buy anything internationally until I'm 18 and I'm still 17 and I can't believe I can't buy the new songs by Shannon, that's the most terrible thing of the world! I hate hackers.. Damn it

But they're really good good songs, Day by day Shannon gets her music better...

Honestly, I wouldn't say it's going "great".  

It's funny...when I first started writing songs, I thought all I had to do was write some 'hit' songs & I'd be golden.  I realize now that I was wrong, but since then the music industry has also changed a lot.  From what I hear, having great songs used to be (almost) enough, but now you really have to build a solid following, all on your own, before you get any label attention.   I'm having a hard time finding my local fanbase because there aren't very many worth-while venues for my band here.  I kind of don't know what to do next.  

I'm constantly writing and recording and would love to release another album in the not-so-distant future.  I'm not giving up, but I am definitely a little discouraged at the moment.  The life of an artist really is tough.  However, I must note that I am currently very lucky to be in a position where I can focus on my music career without having to worry about income.  So that's a plus!

I'm constantly writing and recording and would love to release another album in the not-so-distant future.  I'm not giving up, but I am definitely a little discouraged at the moment.  The life of an artist really is tough.  However, I must note that I am currently very lucky to be in a position where I can focus on my music career without having to worry about income.  So that's a plus!


Why don't you move to NYC or LA??


Easier said than done.   :wink:

true... but then again I almost upped and left this summer to NY with my boyfriend and his best friend. We'd have been living in the city, 400 each for rent. id be workin a whole lot for sure, and id still be poor considering it is NY. I would be aiming for advertising tho, not music. that might throw in a wrench.

but i decided to take a year off, save up a lot of money so in 3 years when i finish school i can move to NY and have some security.

Yeah it must be hard :(. It just sucks tho the not so great singers get all these hits and what not..tho really good singers it seems like they don't get noticed..

Hm. Maybe you can get some of your songs on radio or something or talk to a record company?

Nobody realizes how hard that is until they're trying to do it.  First of all, most radio stations won't even play independent music.  You have to be signed with a label - that's your "in".  Labels pay for radio play!  As for getting label attention, that's pretty difficult as well.  There are thousands of artists competing for it...it's hard, but I'm going to keep trying.

Shannon, you should get into the next season of The Hills. Heidi is releasing an album. I bet ya 10:1 it'll sell like hotcakes.

I hear ya, though. You feel really confined in a town that isn't LA, NY, or even Nashville. But don't give up.

Not unless you know someone in the biz.   :lol:   But seriously, being a fan really helps, so thank you!

And Alegna, I started taking piano lessons when I was 6, but have been learning guitar on my own (which is why it's going slowly).  Thanks for the nice comments!   :)

THOUGHT BATTLE

Pulling myself in every direction
Is there no content compromise?
One day I asked myself,
"What am I really fighting for?
Can't both sides of my mind agree...
On something?"

Chorus:
My head starts screaming, I'm trying to find
The words I'm needing, but, oh, in my mind
I am a nobody trying to be somebody
In this thought battle

Part of me refuses to give up
Part of me knows I won't have any luck
But there's a way, there's a place
There's a time, oh, it's a shame
It's not easy, it's not easy

Repeat Chorus

Facing the problem won't solve it
You are what you think
The battle has begun
Myself vs. me

Repeat Chorus

Interesting choices for your covers Shannon. Plenty of rationalle I'm sure!
As soon as I get broadband up and running I'll be able to restore my MP3
collection of your material to its former glory. It has been way too long :oops:

Wow, really?  It's so slow...I could never see it as a single.  lol.  I have a few other songs kind of like that one, but most of them have yet to be recorded.  The album is much more upbeat.  Hopefully you'll like it anyway!   :)

I'm still writing new songs for the next album.  I will probably start thinking about releasing another one when I feel I have all of the right songs, but I'm not sure when that will be.  I'm going to be really picky this time around.

I love these songs because I probably relate to them the most. Can't wait to get to know the rest of the album. I need 2 copies one for my car and one for my house!!

I think I need help designing my logo for t-shirts and such.  If anyone out there would like to try to design a logo for me, that would be wonderful!  The thing is I'm very picky, so I was hesitant to even post this request, but I'm really not that great at this stuff.  What I'm looking for is something unique that represents my music well (so including a piano in some way might work).  Please use just 1 or 2 colors, so the product(s) can be affordable.  There's a font called "hamlake" that I like (you can google it), but you don't have to use it, if you don't want to.  Basically, I just want my name + some sort of design.  No photos, please!  I want it to look as professional as possible.            

Of course I can't guarantee I'll use your design, but wouldn't it be cool if I did?  :D

Thanks, in advance!  I'm looking forward to seeing what you can come up with!

I'd buy it but theres couple of problems...

1. I don't hae a piano, used to.  I tried to find sheet music that I can print out for Vanessa Carlton and couldn't find anything. I did find sheet music for one of my fav. cartoons(the angry beavers)tried to play it on the piano and I don't know I just never stuck with it, I personally rather have someone sitting there with me and help me rather than I do it all by myself XD.
2. I don't know how to play the piano and I think I suck lol.

The color/design I picked out above seems to have the best contrast. Can
you let me know what timeframe between ordering online and delivery to

4 jobs?!?!  Wow... :(

Yeah; I was working in both the restaurant and the bottle shop with Kookoo
when I started. It hasn't been busy enough for them to give me any hours
in the restaurant the last three weeks so I need to look for a 4th gig. I can
do more with Freelife (the Goji distributor featured in the poster below) or
Amway, once I get either a car or a bike so I can get around. My bike was
stolen Feb 9th and my car on the 17th. Fortunately the car is insured but I
didn't get insurance arranged for the bike in time so this beauty is lost  :cry:

me in the arse but with talent like yours around I'm content to revel in the
glory of your compositions. How do I order a signed T-shirt from Zazzle :roll:

Neither do I but that's not about to stop me from learning; once I work out
how to change my Firewall so I can run streaming media accross my ADSL
connection, I can start using tutorials like those created by **Ann-Marie89** (http://forum.nessaholics.com/profile.php?mode=viewprofile&u=1998)

I love the zazzle set-up on your site; unfortunately I can't order anything
over the web with my credit card until I can contact my bank on Monday!

The color/design I picked out above seems to have the best contrast. Can
you let me know what timeframe between ordering online and delivery to
Australia? I'll ask my sister in law about getting some for my nephews  :wink:

But wait, it gets beter! Tonight I after dinner I told my brother not to move
any of the CDs from the coffee table in the corner of the lounge until I had
finished manually removing Z..b with my registry utility. Patience not being
one of lil' bro's virtues, he decided to move all of the CDs to the linen cup-
board (WTF??) where upon moving the open-fronted 12-CD box, he tipped
it forward to fit it onto the shelf and dropped 4 CDs onto the only exposed
concrete in the entire appartment; in the linen cupboard next to the water
heater. The 4 CDs included Sade's 'Lovers Rock' and my 3 rarest CDs;  :roll:

I had an appointment with my bank manager today where I was denied a
AU$6000 loan because I wasn't able tp estimate the income from Amway
or FreeLife. Banks only deal with PAYE income; the most tangiable tbere is
out there. They can work out a gross income and exactly what you'll have
left arfter tax. Beyond that potential income dosen't exist and you have to
do a David Copperfield to bring the bitch home. Anything you can swing 2
me at this point would be 'music to my ears' in the true sence of te word!!

Yeah Shannon, you can add 'Nuisance' to the plethora of descriptors I've
used to describe him so far this year alone. 'Financial burden' is so much
more appropriate under his current circumstances. No chance I'll see the
$$$$$ he owes me now. He wasted 6 hours of my time yesterday, after
taking off with a set of keys. At least I could sit down to dinner by 8:30  :eatarrow:

Strange....I wonder why it's not working.  Do you use a mac?  I do & that myspace layout doesn't really work for me.

And to answer CelestialHorse's question:  I have not written all the songs for my next album yet.  The only ones that are DEFINITELY going to be on there are "Say What You Mean", "Back To Believing", "Done", "Thought Battle", "I'm On My Own", & "Tragic".

I'll be using a Mac Mini when I am after something portable, more reliable
than any PC-based laptop. For now I'm using a PC with an admirably fast
processor but only 256Mb of RAM (about 1/3 of what I need). Until I have
768Mb available my machine will always run into issues with IE7 where a
page just don't load properly; I'm in Perth tonight & your MS site is OK ;-)

If you'd like to see pictures from my trip to Europe, go here:  http://www.offexploring.com/curtiskline (p.s. There are also a couple of videos and blogs that my boyfriend posted!)

There isn't much to report, really.  I've just been writing and recording - constantly, but at a snail's pace.  I will be releasing another album in the semi-near future, but I don't know exactly when yet.  Of all the "new" songs you've heard (meaning anything that's not on "Brainstorms"), which ones do you think should be on the album?  Some songs are definitely going to make the cut ("Back to Believing", "Tragic", & "Say What You Mean", for instance), but the following songs are on the fence:

You're a Ghost
It Must Be Nice
Never Too Much
Asleep
Multiple Endings
Intruder

I'm really interested in your opinion, but please don't be mad at me if your favorite doesn't end up on the album.  Any song that doesn't make it will be released individually through Snocap (on my myspace page).  :)

I've said it before & I'll say it again:  "The Something I Believe In" is very embarrassing!!  I really wish I would've never released those recordings.   :(

Thank you guys for your support.  It's amazing to me that there are people in this world who really care about my music!

While my song "Edward" was NOT inspired at all by the Twilight series (I simply had a crush on a boy at school), the fact that people think it's about Edward Cullen has only helped get my name out there a little bit more. So I figured I would fuel the fire and make this little promotional video, which uses stills from the upcoming "Twilight" movie, with my song in the background. Please repost this wherever you can!

You like the new album cover?  I'm pretty excited about it - I think it's more representative of me & my music than the last one was.  I was going for "sophisticated fun"   :D

Looks Fantastic Shannon  :-* Nice artwork on the album cover as well. I've just bought a Wacom Bamboo Fun (6 x 9), and have paired it up with Corel 12 so expect to see that album cover reworked for a SIG very soon. I'll have internet back on at home this afternoon after 190 days without it and would love to catch up if you have Skype  8) 6 months at my new workplace have made up for web-isolation down here!

Where is 'It must be Nice'? I mean it's the best. What about 'Intruder' It's the best also  ???

I knew this question would be asked...

The subject matter of "It Must Be Nice" is quite painful for me.  I wasn't sure if I wanted to eternalize it by including it on this album.  Maybe I will release it in the future.  Time will tell.  (Please don't hate me!)

I love "Intruder".  I didn't include it because there are several songs basically about the same thing already on the album.  Again, maybe someday...

I hope you understand.  I had to do what I thought was best.   ;)

Hi Shannon

I'll be hosting a "House-Warming" party here on Monday April 27 and would like to take the opportunity to do
a bit of PR for you while I'm at it. The guest list will have at least 24 on it, with the condition that bonafide
guests will be allowed to bring a friend so long as I know them (and aren't likely to trash my place that nite).

(http://c4.ac-images.myspacecdn.com/images02/47/l_38642351bc614182a51ecfcece321317.jpg)

I thought if I sent you a Western Union Transfer and got you to send a couple of copies of Glass Doll to me,
I could use at least one of them as a door prize on the night. Let me know what you think of the concept
and which URLs I should direct everyone to (i.e send them somewhere like your myspace and get them to
post links back on their myspace / facebook / blogs etc. to promote your music and the new album, all the
while gaining further exposure for you in Australia, and where ever my friends have contacts online)  ;)  :-*

I suppose as I don't yet have my Mac Mini, a direct file transfer is less easy... unless of course you install
Skype 2.7 for Mac OS X at your end. The software can be downloaded for free from the link below;

http://www.skype.com/download/skype/macosx/ (http://www.skype.com/download/skype/macosx/)  ;D

Once you have Skype on your Mac, its as easy as selecting 'search for skype users' from the contacts menu
and adding nessaussie as my Skype Name in the search field.

You can then use the Send >> File option to transfer your files directly via Skype. This would be the best
way for you to get the files to me... I just need them in a format that I can use in Windows Media Player

Now that I have the Wacom Bamboo Fun stylus & mouse both at home, I was able to knock up a prototype
for the obverse side of the lanyard tag for the party, I'd like to make it something guest will souvenir so the
amount of promotional value to you is maximised (I suppose it definately needs to have your www on it)  :-*

Hi Shannon

It looks like my party is going to have to be re-scheduled to May 11; my flatmate is moving back to Melbourne
and asking for his half of the bond before I've even had the chance to advertise for a new co-tennant. Rent is
also due in 6 days, and then there's the hire-purchase of the new car to sort out. May 11 will also double as a
send-off party for my Sommelier superior at work who is moving on after 3 years in the position. It should be a
great night! I can't wait to see the responce to your music from the guests attending. Thanks in advance  ;D

I should be able to finish of the lanyard design tonight, and post a copy of it back here. Then I will be able to maximise the exposure for you online down under, without have a whole bunch of gate-crashers rocking up on my doorstep on May 11th :o  ;)

Hi Shannon

It looks like there will be lots of distractions Monday 11, with most of those invited to the party at my place
coming from an event somewhere else earlier that night. At least this will help keep the number of guests I
have to cater for food-wise to a managable number, and keep the beverages flowing until well into the nite.

In lieu of the cellar content arriving on my doorstep this week, I've decided to make a Sushi & Riesling nite
out of the evening with regard to the catering concept, the entertainment will be left to your very own
"hot off the press' copy of Glass Doll via Skype, and hopefully a very receptive audience in attendance  8)

Congratulations Shannon  :-*

Glass Doll was very well recieved by those in attendance; the night turned into a later sitting with almost all
of the guests arriving after 8:00PM. The AFL Match in Melbourne proved a significant distraction, with 2 of
those that had RSVP'd either still down there afterward or too stuffed to make there way back to Daylesford.

Over And Over proved to be the surprise packet of the night... totally addictive in every repsect, and no-one
was satisfied with just a single repeat perfomance; the kind of track (esp. given the guitar) that audiences
would be happy to wait for an encore for. Enchanting is not a descriptor I use often, but appropriate here  :o

Just so you know, Elzane (who's B-day it was on Monday) caught up with her Eszterhazi Torta tonight... I
had to wait until today to take it into work, b/c she had been in Melbourne the last two days. She was so
happy that I had staged an event on her B-day, even if she was out of town and couldn't attend, and that
I had gone to the effort of making a B-day cake for her (see pic below). Let me know if you can send an
extra copy of Glass Doll once you finish mastering the CD and have it pressed, and I will get one for her  :-*

you MADE that? that's AMAZING

If I had discovered my ability in the kitchen before my ability to recognise quality in wine, I would have likely
become a Chef rather than a Sommelier... the advantage I now have, is that I can work front of house where
there is more involvment with the audience of the restaurant, but still get to talk the talk and walk the walk
with the Chefs in the kitchen. I have been asked at least 5 times already if I would like to work in the Pastry
section of the kitchen due to my ability with desserts. I've declined as I am happier out front at the pointy
end of the equation. At least I know the Chef on the recieving end of this Birthday cake will be up for making
mine when November comes around (its sure to be a fantastic retort as there is so much in season then)  :P

If I could be a pastry chef, I totally would!  I suck at baking, cooking, everything in the kitchen.   :-[  Indeed, that was a beautiful cake you made!

I'm surprised... it's a cake from my home country and the wine's also hungarian!

Where do you get the idea to make that? :O

Where do you get the idea to make that? :O

a) I was planning on taking annual leave this year to Austria & Hungary (my trip has had to be postponed
until next year because of the amount of salary staff applying for annual leave at the same time in 2008).

b) I am a hooj fan of Tokaji (sweet) wines and the range of desserts one can match with them

c) I have a cook book titled "Culinaria Hungary" which features Budapast favorites including the above

d) I knew I could make a lasting impression on a chef (well qualified in pastry, that has seen time in Europe, but not in Hungary), by making such a dessert as a Birthday Cake for her  ;)

e) I had the distinct advantage of working in the kitchen with the inspiration of Glass Doll to listen to  :o

Post by: NESSAussie on May 20, 2009, 08:08:36 am
Hi Shannon

I had to go to Melbourne for a wine tasting, so I didn't get a chance to finish the new sig today. I have some
prep to do to save the forest mushrooms I have been given to turn them into potato & mushroom lasagna...
this will keep me fed for the rest of the week. As I will finish earlier tomorrow I should be able to get the new
sig up. Thought of some new ideas for it whilst driving to Melbourne playing Glass Doll (on repeat) in my head

Title: elements for the new SIG ;-)
Post by: NESSAussie on May 21, 2009, 09:18:10 am
Hi Shannon... so much for an earlier finish tonight! 00:45AM before I got away from work. I then came home
and made dinner. When I tried to run the streaming audio across your myspace, I had to upgrade the copy
of Flash Player I had on the PC here for anything to work, and when I re-booted it, Corel Photo-Paint almost
refused to start (to get it working, I had to select a graphic file from the desktop with file, open with). Now I
must crash, but here's a couple of elements for the new SIG; the b/g followed by a layer I'll use to color text
elements in the sig with (you can pull text through a mask to leave it with the color of a foreground overlay);

^Sounds great!^

This album is taking FOREVER to finish.  I only meet with John a few hours a week, so the whole thing is moving at a snail's pace.  I feel really bad, but there's nothing I can do about it.   :-\

Hi Shannon

I tweaked the gif I made, adding more frames. It looks fantastic now, but just one more question... do you
have an ETA of pressed copies of the CD? I've made a point of not sharing the files you sent me other than
for the launch; obviously I'd much rather my friends go to itunes to get a copy. I'm on holiday in 18 days  ;)

I FINALLY got the cds in today!  Those of you who get a free copy (who have TSIBI):  Your copy will be mailed out tomorrow!  Anyone else who wants a copy can order it from the new version of www.shannonthomas.net ... hopefully we'll have it up tonight.

Thanks again for your patience.  I really hope you guys think it's worth the wait!

Hi Shannon

Just a quick note to remind you how much I enjoy Glass Doll... I just came back from a 15-day holiday interstate. The
hire car I had was equiped with a CD player that recognises .MP3 & .WMA files, but I'm yet to burn your tracks to CD.

Returning lastnight and being able to rock on to Glass Doll made me appreciate how much I missed it (I have nothing
of yours on my mobile either, so until I get the Mac Mini, having a mobile juke box is a while away yet). Love ya work!

"Glass Doll" is available NOW!!



To order my new album, go to paypal.com and send $12 to orders@shannonthomas.net ... this applies to anyone in the U.S., Canada, or Mexico.  If you are from any other country, send $16.  Once I get your order, I will personally ship your copy of "Glass Doll" to you! 

The first 50 fans to order will receive an exclusive download of "It Must Be Nice", an unreleased track from the "Glass Doll" sessions!  A lot of you were disappointed to hear this song was not included on the album.  Well, here's your chance to get it - for free! 

Also, the new version of shannonthomas.net will launch within the next few days.  Be sure to check it out!

Hope you all enjoy the album!

Hi Shannon

Although I've been using eBay since 2003, all my transactions have been direct deposits. I've just registered with Pay
Pal so will have to wait for the confirmation process to take its course. There is also a facility in Skype to send funds
via Pay Pal, so it made sense to sign up. I may be moving before the end of August, so I'll try to place the order ASAP

The 'new look' official webby is amazing... I can't wait until I get the Mac Mini & Corel X4 and can produce artwork like
that without even trying hard  ::) Best part is the catchiest tracks from GD feature at the front end of the introduction
(i.e. N2M as the third track). Be prepared for an unprecedented response to your material and hopefully sales to boot

Hi Shannon

Just about to send you a PM with an address for the copies of GD other than the one I registered at Pay Pal with... its
proving almost impossible to find a share option here to reduce the rental expense. As much as I'd like to stay here in
Daylesford, finding new staff for the kitchen (most ideal share option) is proving such a challenge, even the owner has
asked me if I knew of any Queensland-based chefs that would be interested in a position here at the Lake House  :o

Hi Shannon

Thanks for the reply. I'm still waiting on a package to arrive that I mailed to myself last Tuesday (its supposed to take
4 working days to arrive), from Queensland. Certainly has done nothing to increase my faith in Australia Post, as I've
lost orders during shipping previously, so this is concerning. Hopefully the copies of GD don't suffer such misfortune  :P

Hi Shannon

Thank you for the confirmation of transaction e-mail. I'm more than happy to be one of the '1st 50' to order Glass Doll
& will be delighted to share the 2nd copy that I've ordered with someone deserving. "It Must Be Nice" indeed ROCKS!

As for restoring my faith in Australia Post, I might have to wait until early next week when I have time to chase up the
missing package from my home phone (I don't expect to get any strait-up answers as to why they didn't try to contact
work if there was an issue at their end with the package). As for the copies of Glass Doll, all I can say is God Speed  ;D

Hi Shannon

Don't know about a faster delivery (at least at the Aussie end) of GD... the only way Aus Post could explain the time it
took to deliver my Boomerang (it arrived today), is if they had re-instated a form of transport that made its last run in
1924 (unless you count the 1963 run between Cooktown & Melbourne), which proved a Qld - Vic delivery was viable!

Got my copies of Glass Doll last night; the package had not been 'delivered' to me sooner b/c I do not have a pidgeon
hole in the front office at work, so it was slotted into the F&B Manager's pidgeon hole instead. He just got back from
a fortnight's holiday, so I have no idea when it actually arrived other than to say I'm thrilled to have the 1st copies of
Glass Doll in Australia! I'm so happy to have been able to get hold of the bonus track by ordering early... it ROCKS  ;D

...Ouch, if everyone here has been as busy as I have for the last 3 months, then that might be some excuse. However, now that I have a Mac Mini & can start do get my work done smarted and a whole lot faster, I should have more time to enjoy Shannon's music and share feedback here. I gave signed copy as a Christmas gift, and have been enjoying my copy in the CD player of my new car for at least the last fortnight. Glass Doll ROCKS  :-*

Title: NEW electronic Keyboard :: Kawai X110
Post by: NESSAussie on February 06, 2010, 12:11:31 am
Hi Shannon

I just thought I'd let you know I've finally been able to tee up an electonic keyboard here. I have a friend who no longer has the time to spend on their
Kawai X110, so they have agreed to loan it to me. Whilst its only a 61 key model, I figure it would be a great place to start out. Now that I have the Mac Mini, with iGarage soon to be added (as part of iLife), I have a computer set-up that can handle every bit of creative input I throw its way.

Please remind me again where I should be looking for sheet music of your songs, and if there is some other Mac-based software for electronic sheet music that you could refer me to.


Peace

Aaron
