New Song: Hmm – cc.tran + YouTube

Yesterday was one of those days where things were happening left and right, back-to-back.  Which not only led me to forget my medication, but ultimately just tuckered me out by the end of the day.  So naturally, I had a time out and took some time to play with my guitar. I ended up doing a YouTube video of a song that felt like a reflection of the day.  My song "Hmm" - which has a humming part to it (hence the title).  I wrote it on a bad day a long time ago while also thinking about the economy Read more [...]

New Song: Fairy Tale (Uke Demo)

I haven't written a uke song in awhile, but my guitar is currently out of commission.  It's autographed so I need a new one - lest I want to make the guitar un-autographed!

This song is about wanting someone to lie to you, not forever but just for a little while.  Where - in Read more [...]

New Original Song: “Again” on cc.tran myspace

Just uploaded a basic version of my song "Again" on my myspace (cc.tran music - http://www.myspace.com/ukechick).  I wanted to write a song about two lovers that didn't work out and one hoping that the other can find love of similar intensity in the future. Probably my most favorite song in the 8 or so I wrote last month during my "be more creative/artsy for lent" - yes, I pretty much wrote an album worth of songs. In the eventual version of the song, I'm thinking background vocals, some keyboards, Read more [...]
