3,2,1 Chuc Mung Nam Moi or in English Happy New Year! A beautiful firework display over the Saigon River can be seen from all over. I, Julianne Costa, a female singer with el-live Productions am lucky enough to have spent 2 Lunar New Years in Vietnam. The first year, I was just a tourist walking around the beautiful Nguyen Hue flower street.
One of the most common challenges for musicians and singers of all levels is the ability to sustain growth and continued improvement on their chosen instrument. How do you stay creative and get better in the midst of the daily grind of performances, rehearsals and even the occasional partying?
The other day I needed to write something and I asked my 10 year old son to find me a paper and pen. Of course he got up right away and handed me a paper and a pencil even though he would have rather stayed on the couch and play his iPad.
Women, as a collective are stronger and more confident than ever. We need not fear traveling alone. Carpe Diem Baby! In the words of Helen Keller, “Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.” Armed with the right information we can begin our adventure with conviction and enthusiasm. I have compiled advice from fellow female singers currently on the road of ways to stay safe while on tour.
I’m afraid I have opened a door to a vast and diverse collection of truly amazing and gifted artists and performers here. In my research, I have found so many women that I believe should be acknowledged in their field, that it has become increasingly difficult to narrow the number down to a mere 12.
At el-live Productions we have the unique luxury of reviewing applicants from all over the world, whether you’re a female singer or bassist that happens to be looking for a job and have a dream of traveling while doing what you love best and that is to be a full time working musician.
Experts in the study of body language believe that between 50 to 93 percent of the way we communicate with each other is nonverbal. That means things like posture, facial expressions and physical gestures are saying just as much, if not more, than the actual words you’re speaking.
The dreaded nightmare of women everywheThe dreaded nightmare of women everywhere...What to pack! Since I have been singing overseas with el-live Productions for the past few years I have learned a thing or two. Here are a few tips for female vocalist whom are about to leave on tour. Men should abruptly stop reading unless you too care about bras, tampons, and shoes.
Traveling the world and doing it through music was a lifelong dream of mine, and el-live was my ticket to make that come true. While doing some soul searching I remembered this old Irish saying, “Throw your hat over the wall” meaning if you really want something make the commitment and go.
I know you’re probably wondering how I ended up on this list of names. Well, I own an apple computer, love Led Zeppelin and have had a bike since the first grade. That's all true but there is something else I would like to point out. Go back and look at the three famous names on the top. Now say each name to yourself. What was the first thing that came into your mind? Here’s what I think of
One of my earliest memories of music is the wedding of one of my uncles. I was all of 4 years old, and the wedding was held at the house of my great aunt in Belmont, a district in Trinidad’s capital of Port-Of-Spain. Apart from the usual celebration of the event, there was a live band, featuring a vibraphonist that would grow to be legendary in music circles in my country.
We've had the pleasure of working or sharing the stage with so many amazing musicians of all ages, backgrounds and different nationalities that we've become quite in-tune with many types of personalities. We've also grown to realize how musicians view the world in so many different ways, some productive and some flat out destructive.
This week’s collection includes some new discoveries and old favorites revisited. I am sharing this at the suggestion of someone very close to my heart. I will be doing this weekly because I truly believe this can be, on some level, a service to many who are searching for the cream in such a vast environment such as YouTube.
During the course of an average week, I listen to a huge amount of music. I have never personally tried to measure this in either time spent or the amount of songs listened to, but my life revolves around music................from the moment I open my eyes to that final peaceful descent into sleep.
What is it that makes a great musician? If you had to narrow it down to one single quality what is the one thing, regardless of musical genre or instrument, that they all have in common? They’re storytellers...
It seems that the whole world is blogging about one thing or another. The notion that every opinion and whim bears publishing is nauseating, and while I celebrate the freedom of expression it affords us all...
One of our artists, a wonderful entertainer, called me a while back and proceeded to ask me: “Hey G, is it okay if I don’t do PR?” I almost said yes, but I said: “Hell no, why would you ask me that?” This got me...
