Do you wonder to yourself, "Why does Melanie keep writing and posting songs on YouTube?" or "Why does Melanie keep recording her self driving around and singing karaoke" or "what is the point of all this?".
Well, I'm starting to feel that is what my friend and family are thinking. So let me clarify:
I have always had love for music since I was a young child. I learned to play the violin in like 5th grade, I learned to play clarinet by 6th grade and by 8th grade I was second chair (meaning 2nd best). I taught myself how to play bass guitar at 14 and then guitar at 16. I sang in elementary school - probably not that good - but I remember covering practically the entire Rogers and Hammerstein musical collection. 'chicks and ducks and geese better scurry...' I was in Theater and Choir in 7th and 8th grade, I was in Theater and Choir all through high school. I was in the church band all through high school.
Come adulthood I was writing songs, leading worship for small groups, church congregations and bible studies.
My dream has always been to make a living by singing, playing or writing music. I don't have to be a rock star, I don't have to win any type of award. I just want to have fun, write and sing my own songs and be able to enjoy life.
Like any artist, I want to display my craft. Almost as if you were at an art gallery gazing at all the fantastic pieces of work that held some sort of inspiration for the artist. I want to share my music with you. I want people to hear my songs and I can hope some of the songs ring true in your life. When I write a song, I tap into emotions that I have felt, witnessed or imagined to create a vivid expression of feelings and a story.
I like to think I'm a fun person. I love to laugh and experience life. Which is why I try not to take myself so seriously sometimes. Driving Around Karaoke is something fun for me to do that I hope will brighten up your day. I'm having fun recording them and I only hope you have fun watching them. I only sing songs that I already know to be as safe as possible and I have good peripheral view.
