The Album Launch & a lack of ideas...

Hellooo there everyone. :)

I'm back with news of my album launch. :)

It will be held at the Quay Arts Centre, on May 25th (a Tuesday evening). Doors are open at 7pm, and the performance starts at 8pm. :) There is a bar (watching you Xeno) and there will be people tearing up tickets and everything. :D Cooool.

You can contact the Box Office on 01983 822490 :) - tickets are £1. :)

http://www.quayarts.org/event.aspx?id=2990 There's the venue's site with my little piccy there. - There should be some more text there shortly. :)

Also, - found out about this lovely write-up on the Bestival website today! How cool is that?!

Local Isle of Wight singer songwriter Holly Kirby has been writing and singing her own songs pretty much as long as she can remember. A gifted musician her folk based songs are beautifully lilting, intelligently written tales of love and loss held together by her wondrously heartbreaking vocals.

Her influences include Joni Mitchell, Loreena McKennitt and Sandy Denny and it’s no exaggeration to say that this young lady is well on her way to becoming as accomplished and successful as any of her heroes.

I think that's mighty lovely. :)

On the video front, I'm currently suffering from...er...video-maker's block. :-S Darren and I have done a trancey tune, and I'm really stuck for ideas. It's so tricky... :-S I'll keep thinking. I really want to get it on YouTube asap, because Darren has done such a great job with the music! Hmmm...

Better get to it!

Lots of love xxxxxxxx

Beautiful writeup! And so true. I am sooooo happy for you! Thinking about flying over there so I can get my copy, lol! Maybe it will come today.

When you say "There is a bar (watching you Xeno)" does that mean that feathers will be stopped at the door and only bipeds will be allowed entry?
Excellent write up. And accurate too.

What's the trancy tune about? Maybe your personal "think tank" can come up with an idea.

@Larry - Lol! Well hopefully it'll arrive soon!!! :-S Or else I might have to deliver it by hand! Lol. Maybe one day. ;)

@Xeno - Duck/waterfowl have to be supervised at all times upon entering the bar area, due to the fact that they cannot handle their drink as well as the hoomans. ;)
The trancy tune is about forbidden love. Here's a verse, just to give you an idea...

I'd give anything to taste your kiss
To steal a glance from you, so tell me this...
How it feels to be the object of my desire
The breath that lights the fire

Ooh er! Lol. Any ideas? I'll credit you as 'video concept'. Lol

You could do it as someone singing to a really hot curry with maybe with a baby dragon doing the cooking as you sing the last line.

Uncle Tim said...

lol. You could perhaps put the song on YT in a plain form, but with a recorded video clip at the start in which you introduce the song and ask for suggestions for the video? (Also a clip at the end, perhaps, in which you say something like "well now you've heard it, what sort of video would you suggest?") Just a thought to get the song on YT quickly!

I'm with you bro' ~ get it on quickly ~ it's too good to be lurking in the background isn't it. Great lyrics and brill job by Darren.

Actually the dragon bit sounds a good idea Xeno ~ you don't happen to have a small dragon we could borrow do you? ;)

Trevor said...

Brilliant write up,Holly,and it's particularly nice to read given that my Sunday Paper carried a review of Festivals and included IOW Bestival as one of the top twenty festivals in the country --- and there are several hundred festivals !

Forbidden Love -- secret,air of mystery,risk of discovery,excitement,guilt,shame,regret,heartache,sorrow...looking at photo on mobile phone,secret texting and calling,looking into room through slightly ajar,looking longingly out of a window,closing curtains,sadly closing phone for last time etc etc

Trevor said...

That which was slightly ajar was,of course, a door !

Larry said...

xeno gave me this idea... I visualized it too, lol. Maybe play the song on something (like WMP) which will generate a dynamic visualization in time with the music, record that, and then superimpose an image of you singing, in "Moonlight' or some other trancy effect.

White bride in the moonlight,
a sandy beach,
a hand to reach,
an unborn child,
a tree so wild,
black bird to guide,
a mirror broken,
a word unspoken...

xenonrush said...

WG ~ Didn't know you were a poet. Have you got a tune for it too?

wolfgang said...

Xeno~, I can't even read notes.LOL. But no one (not even Holly) could make music out of that.

xenonrush said...

Was having a look on the net for ideas about forbidden love and found this. It could be ground breaking for a trancy track!
