Taking on Lady Gaga is pretty terrifying. The woman is insanely talented and this piece is just perfection. I could never perform it as well as she does, the way she does, so I won’t try to! Dee and I made a few little changes here and there to better suit our style and range, and we both really enjoyed singing this one. We were both slightly shaky at the end, as though we’d just performed it in front of an audience. It is the first time we are sharing it with anyone at all, so maybe that has something to do with it. Maybe also the fact that we had only finished nutting out some of the details minutes earlier, and there are several places where an ill-timed vocal crack or wobble could force a retake. It’s an emotive piece, the lyrics are pure poetry. Thank you #ladygaga , you are a living legend.

I am, as you may gather, thirty something - 38 if you must know, I see growing older as a gift, not something to be ashamed of. I am a midwife as of not too long ago, I am a mama to 2 little handfuls, and I am married to my favourite person in the world. I had to go half way round said world to find him so it's a good thing it's worked out so well. I am all these things, and I love so much about this life, I do feel incredibly "#blessed" (and I promise to never do that again). But as everything seems to fall into place in our lives- almost 10 years married- tick- first home bought together -tick- cap placed on 2 children-tick- both in permanent government positions- tick... I start to feel uneasy in the inescapable knowledge that something's not right. I'm not following my passion, and until recently I couldn't even name it, I'd neglected it for so long. Starting this blog is the first step to getting on the right track, a better track, because before being a wife, mother and midwife, before even being a woman, I was and will always be a writer. So write, I will. Read on if you dare. View all posts by soulsearchinginsuburbia
