StreetcredMusic: Lots Of Women Play Piano, Part 3. Jade Simmons and Ivete Sangalo

 StreetcredMusic: "Lots of Women Play Piano" Part 3.

 “Life is like a piano; the white keys represent happiness and the black show sadness.                              

But as you go through life’s journey, remember that the black keys also create music.” 

Video: Ivete Sangalo

StreetcredMusic: Lots Of Women Play Piano, Part 2 Carly Simon and Licia Missori

 StreetcredMusic: "Lots Of Women Play Piano" Part 2.

  Color is the keyboard, the eyes are the harmonies, the soul is the piano with many strings. 

The artist is the hand that plays, touching one key or another, to cause vibrations in the soul.

 The one and only: Carly Simon

 

                                ************************************************

 Pianos, unlike people, sing when you give them your every growl. 

They know how to dive into the pit of your stomach and harmonize with your roars when you’ve split yourself open.

And when they see you, guts shining, brain pulsing, heart right there exposed in a rhythm that beats need need, need need, need need, pianos do not run... And so she plays. 

From Italy; The Music of Licia Missori

StreetcredMusic: Lots of Women Play Piano, Pt 1. Kayce Laine and Carole King

 The piano is an acoustic, stringed musical instrument invented in Italy by Bartolomeo Cristofori around the year 1700 (the exact year is uncertain), in which the strings are struck by wooden hammers that are coated with a softer material (modern hammers are covered with dense wool felt; some early pianos used leather). It is played using a keyboard, which is a row of keys (small levers) that the performer presses down or strikes with the fingers and thumbs of both hands to cause the hammers to strike the strings.

The word piano is a shortened form of pianoforte

you want to leave yourself wanting more. Carole King

Tuesday

StreetcredMusic: "After The Music" with #Pianowoman Kayce Laine

 

Get to know the artists I support and work with. That's the purpose of this blog. If you know them you will probably take more interest in them and their work, that's the mission here. #Support.  Non profit support.

So take a look here at a familiar face  Kayce Laine an original #Pianowoman. Four years now after the first #Pianowomen shoot, we got together to see what's been going on in her life.

                                   ***************************

We did not know it but just days after we were in New York City shooting this, Covid devastated the area we were staying in. Kayce went back to Nashville and spent a week with a flu like illness. Me I got lucky I guess, I was fine.

In the eleven years of #StreetcredMusic, this was my first attempt (2012) at documenting the trials and tribulations of women as Indie Musicians, coming to New York City from other states and countries.


It was certainly a learning experience for me, and we had fun.


Please take a minute to read the final credits. All those wonderful people who helped me, coming out of the blue, knowing nothing about film.

Codes For A Healthy Earth

World Unity Water Day, June 24th....

We are all connected by the Ocean. 
Our everyday actions affect the world in which we live,
and all creatures sharing our planet.
I wrote “Song for the Ocean,” so that, through singing,
we can raise our awareness and get involved
in creating positive environmental change.
