Hmmm… No Sean to bounce off today, I guess.

And he’s posted a hip hop song called Caged Bird Part 1. Not sure where to go from that one anyways, but since it’s a canned post, I know there’s no point in trying to keep to a theme anyways. So, today, I’ll post a song I first heard on a service I subscribe to called Songhenge. $20 a year and several times a year, you’re given e-mails with lot’s O’ Celtic, Irish, or just good independant music in it.

Though I was lucky enough to catch them at a point when they had a special lifetime membership thing going. Anyways, here is the song I had in mind:

Breathe – Carey Germana

And this youtube video was actually posted by the singers brother. She certainly has an amazing voice. It may be a bit overly religous for some, but I tend to be a sucker for these things, regardless of the religion, as long as it’s heartfelt. (and not country western. 🙂 )

I actually prefer another song of hers, Back Home, but it wasn’t on youtube or her myspace page. (Though it was on songhenge.) At a warning, her MySpace page is very Christian. Wonder if I can come up with a good Buddhist song for tomorrow…

    Well thank you for the nice comments…was bored and googling my name when I found your post. I appreciate the very nice words & I am not offended by being considered overly religous either 🙂 Nice to know people are hearing my music because I do write from my heart.

    You’re welcome. Always glad to share music I’ve found with other people.

    And it’s amazing sometimes how people will appear on the internet when you mention them. It’s one of the things that’s been fun about posting to the blog. I recall posting about Julia Eklar and Leslie Fish and having Leslie show up a while back, too.

    Actually, you might like the first song in that post, too, Hope Eyrie.

    And I’ve always liked music that conveys a lot of emotion, or people have poured their heart into. James Taylor’s “Fire and Rain”, for example, is a song that will always be on my playlist, no matter how depressing it can be, for that reason.

    In any case, keep up the good work!

    Had to check back and thanks again! Musicians like me are suckers for validation! 😉 I will check out the other artist you mentioned and appreciate good music too (even if it doesn’t line up with my belief system). I recently heard the song “Black and Gold” for the first time and was covered by Katy Perry (she did an incredible job with the song). Starbucks had it on their Valentine’s Day collection for 2009.

    Thanks again!
