The summer of music



OH. MY. GOD. I can’t actually believe how long it’s been since my last post here. All the things that have happend in the meantime. And the ones that didn’t happen. And everything in between. I don’t really wanna bore you with what I’ve been up to the past 2+ months. It’s basically been the usual. Work. Music. Love. And trying to find my way in between all these things. I’m just gonna focus on the here and now and I’ll try to go back to business as usual in Maybeland. I hope you forgive me for the break and will continue with me on this journey.

This summer of 2013 is all about music for me. So far, I’ve been to an amazing concert of my favourite band (30 Seconds to Mars, who would’ve guessed) in Berlin. I’ve been to 2 awesome music festivals – Rock im Park and Southside – where I’ve seen countless of awesome bands. And you know what? It did something amazing to me. While on the one side I’m pretty happy with my life the way it is and the path I’ve decided to take, there’s always been a part of me that’s been a little dead. Many times when something amazing happened I felt like I was wrapped in cotton and wasn’t able to fully appreciate it. Everything seemed a little indifferent. But these days full of music changed something for the better. Back to the way things used to be. My heart opened and I could feel again, with all my senses. And that was a great feeling and I hope it’s gonna last. I will make it last.

Oh, and then something even more amazing happened. We played our very first little gig! Yes, that’s right! That moment we’ve been working towards for the past year was finally there last week. We played acoutic versions of 3 of our songs at an Open Stage night at a little bar in Frankfurt. We’d been talking about doing this for months now and I finally convinced myself to go for it. I was super nervous before our performance and I was scared that this would affect my voice in a bad way. But it didn’t at all. For the first minute or so, I didn’t really know what to do with myself, but I slowly started to relax and actually enjoyed it. It was so much fun and so amazing, I can’t even find words for it. The crowd was very nice to us and applauded after every song. We also had some friends there who cheered for us and took pictures and photos. It was just great! And when I got off that stage, I thought: Damn it, I want to go back there. Over and over again. It’s something I want to do for the rest of my life. And I hope we’ll get the chance to do so. It was proof for us that we’re actually able to do it. That we have the right to share our songs with the world. We definitely needed this after we were let down by our band mates once again a few weeks back. But we won’t give up. We’ll continue just the 2 of us until we’ve found the right people to actually become a full act.

If you’re interested in our little performance, you can have a look at our Facebook page here. We’ll add video footage soon. So have a look and maybe leave a like!

  1. Congrats on your gig! You should upload it to your fbook page soon…. *hint* 😉
    I love 30 seconds to mars! How was it seeing them live?

  2. I have missed you greatly, and have thought about you much! SO excited that you had your first gig! Congratulations!!! Here’s to wishing you more and more of living your dream! xo

  3. @Laura: Thanks! We’re currently editing the video, so I hope we’ll be able to share it by the end of the week. 🙂 Oh, and Mars was amazing! It was my 2nd and 3rd time seeing them (they also played Rock im Park) and I’d been waiting for them to come back on tour for 1,5 years. They always put on a great show and luckily the amount of fangirls was rather low. I also managed to get my CD and my ticket signed after the show. I’m a bit obsessed with this band because they played a huge role in my decision to make music and live the life I want to, so I’m going to see them at least 3 more times this year.

    @liz: Aw, I missed you, too! I’ll definitely be present in the blogosphere more again. Hope everything is going well with your move to the States!
