Blue Beach Song Collection: ONE | Songs of My Life by Martie Hevia
NOTE: For those of you following my musical progress, I’m happy to report that I released album ONE this month. As I’ve mentioned before, all of my songs are original compositions, at the heart of my music are lyrics, melody and raw emotion. The recordings are simple, acoustic, one-takes – occasionally, layered with my background vocals. And, as you will hear, there is a lot I have yet to learn about sound recording or sound engineering, or singing, for that matter. (I am a work in progress.) With that disclaimer said, thanks for listening and I hope you enjoy Collection ONE. I have also created a new blog, Blue Beach Song Music, where I will put most (if not all) of my future posts about my music. The links to the new Blue Beach Song Music and Blue Beach Song Creations blogs are in the sidebar, but easy to remember: bluebeachsongmusic.wordpress.com and bluebeachsongcreations.wordpress.com -Martie | Blue Beach Song
Well, I did it… my first album: Songs of My Life by Martie Hevia | Blue Beach Song Collection: ONE, which is now available on Amazon. As you probably know by now, from having read my previous posts, all of my songs are original compositions. I am a songwriter for whom lyrics and melody are still the heart of music, expressing my own, yet universal, emotional journeys and life stories in song.
In order to give you a feel for the songs, I created short music video samplers, much shorter than the actual songs – only 1:31 – but long enough to give you an idea what the song is about. I have posted these mini-music videos to my YouTube Blue Beach Song Channel, and here as well – just below. The songs feature my photography, which are available at my Blue Beach Song Shop on Zazzle, along with other Blue Beach Song Creations.
Included in the album (my debut album! yay!) are 11 songs, one of which is a bonus song, an alternate version of ‘A Serious Ocean.’ Unfortunately, I did everything myself, so please forgive my lack of sound recording/engineering skill or singing talent – I am not a sound engineer nor a singer, but if writing songs since the age of five counts for anything, then perhaps I am a songwriter.
And with those apologies, I introduce you to my debut album:
