Heart on my Sleeve.....Thank you for all of your Help so far........

Calling all friends, nursery, middle school, high school, college, uni, work, street, soba or, drunken friends, holiday friends, camp friends, everyone, my family on both sides of the pond, an last but certainly not least my best friends. If I ever need ur friendship it would be right now. Please spare me 5 min of ur week & listen to my 3 x 0.56(sec) clips of New Material. I am working on for my first ever Solo Album, I must be bloody mental, I have only ever featured on other people's up until now, so even though u maybe sick of hearing about it, this is my last shot & I am lucky to have it, I finally get to write & compose. It may work it may not work, but its more about self discovery & letting demons rest. I nearly screwed it up before, I just wanted to drink & be on the move all the time, and be away, as it was easier to deal with things like that back then. I'm different now, I just enjoy writing, I would now just like enough success so that I can produce younger artists in a few years time. But before this I had string of bad luck for a few years, with this & that. I'll not bore u, the final straw tho was when my Ford Transit Van was stolen in 2007, with all my equipment, costumes the lot in it (among other things) wow it went down for a bit. I gave up singing for nearly 2 years, I was miserable, I'd had enough.It was my Angel, friends & family that gave me the courage to give it one last shot. It has been very hard at times, 18 month's ago I had no confidence & I didn't & couldn't even write anymore, let alone sing. So please EVERYONE, I am now once again in need of as many people support who knows me. All I would like u to do is listen to the 3 clips on the link below, they are tracks# 1 to 3, & let me know what you think to them. If u liked what u heard u could also press like & leave me some feedback & possibly every now & again, share it with some1 u know & ask them to do the same. I need to get as many people to hear these tracks, to see if were on the right track. Please feel free to leave feedback if you don't like them also. I want to take this opportunity the THANK the people that have been helping me out I am so grateful as I understand life can prove to be demanding at times. I have had a surge in new people getting on board, I hope a few of you will too, I can't do it alone :)

Brief Synopsis of what each song is about.......

"Please Come Home" This is about nearly loosing your soul mate, when your both in the zone of despising each other, yet you can't let go, without each other. An suddenly when you think all hope is gone, you both wake up, well one of you does more then the other, & they give it that one last push with everything they own, in hope that there "baby" will come back home, as what they had was never lost, it was them that was lost in the hustle & bustle of the world around them.

"Crazy Nation" Well the title speaks for its self, what on earth is going on with the world. Or more to the point the British Nation, we don't do anything anymore, I'm not saying its our fault but they may take a lot of things, but never let them take your soul, life's too short and not as Crazy as we are lead to believe. Breath, spend time with those who make you happy, love you and bring the best out in you. We never know whats around the corner.

"Welcome to my Future" This was the first song I wrote after 3 years, its basically about someone who never believed in there self no matter what. Its about the Irony of how things can sometimes be out of our control, and even though we fight with our self's at the time, and convince our self's its easier to give up, something keeps reeling us back in & suddenly with time, perseverance, belief in your self & hard work, this person suddenly feels like they can do much more than they realized, and they are ready to step out and change their life for the better.

Hope Iv not sent you all to sleep, big hugs, Danielle x x x

BIG THANKS AND HUGS TO ALL WHO HAVE SUPPORTED HER MUSIC UP TO NOW - THE JOURNEY IS ONLY JUST BEGINNING............................................

Danielle Quoted: "All I can do is give it my best shot, if it works it works if it doesn't it doesn't. But at least I can rest in peace knowing I gave it my best........

The main reason I would like it to work, is so that I can help other younger artists from a similar background to me with their journey and hopefully make theirs a little smoother, by giving them an opportunity as I was given.

If established I would like to invest into younger people who have talents but not financial funding. I was lucky, I met Franklyn as he has taught me the business side of things and taught me not how to get ripped off.

Not only is it tough for artists to get a break because of big greedy record companies a lot of them are treat so wrong, cast from pillar to post and end up bankrupt due too the deals that labels had written up. Or were a songwriter has been dragged down to London for a recording session of one of their songs, promised the world, and then shafted at the last minute, had their song stolen, and the song placed on someone else's albums and claimed as theirs. This is also due to funding issues, young artists not copy-writing their material correctly, and then labels working the loopholes they just take what they need.......................

I am not saying all labels are like this, there are some really good ones out there, but there are also some really unfair ones who take advantage of underprivileged people and their dreams. I would like to be in a position to make peoples dreams a reality.

I have a long and bendy road ahead of me, I just hope together we can make not only my dreams a reality.........but other peoples too................................

THANK YOU TO EACH AND EVERYONE OF YOU X X X X
