Me & My Song ® SE1 EP1 “Me and My Song”
Jessica breaks it down about why “Me and My Song” exists and literally fights an uphill battle just to express herself! She’s about done it all as a musician and it has left her asking herself some of life’s most difficult and pesky little questions. Questions like: “What am I doing all of this for?” and “What if I die tomorrow?” Now, she’s making her own space inside of cyberspace – a show called “Me and My Song”. Because ultimately, she has concluded that she’d really just like to put a little something in to this world that leaves it a bit better than how she found it. She just wants to leave the gift of … you guessed it: music.
Join Jessica Leia and her sidekick/bass guitar player, Rob McCloskey, on this week’s installment of “Me and My Song” down at the Chopping Block! Enjoy watching as they try to figure out how many chords are in this song before they perform it for you LIVE! Get a mini music education with discussions on how a song is simply made up of the sum of its parts and how ending on the Subdominant makes a song sound like it doesn’t end. WHAT?? Don’t worry, Jessica will explain it all just as soon as she finishes chopping this yam in half! And after all of that, there really isn’t much left to do except treat the audience with a tasty performance of the song. Yummy fun. (Yes, yams WERE harmed in the making of this video).
Jessica and the band head on over to WAM Studios in San Francisco, CA for a recording session where you get to learn what happens during sound check and what you get when you cross a brown chicken with a brown cow. Meanwhile, Jessica learns that “don’t leave home without it” applies more to keyboards, then it does to credit cards, as she struggles to record the piano portion of this season’s title track “Me and My Song” on a keyboard that is not her own. It only takes about a million takes before she decides to record it all over again somewhere else! Pshh … artists.
Technical difficulties!! Whenever they happen, it’s usually a good idea to just go and do some jumping jacks… Wha? Well, that’s what Jessica does over at Laughing Tiger Studios, where she is recording the final vocals for this Season’s track title: “Me and My Song”. Joined by producer Frank Dorritie, who informs Jessica of when she is and is not allowed to breathe. There will also be a small staff that Jessica happily bosses around while she takes you behind the scenes to watch how it goes down in a recording studio! Oh yeah, and then there’s that whole awesome music video thing at the end when you get to hear the song that Jessica just recorded!
