New release: iamLawn & Angelika Bourti - Dreaming 

A cheeky little collaboration with a beautiful friend of mine, Angelika. 

 

She asked to come and jam, little did we know we would end up writing a full song! 

It is a song about how focusing on ambition SUCKS||| kindof.. 

I decided to 'pursue' music for a few reasons

Firstly because it allows me to document my life journey - so that I can look back and remember dearly what has passed by listening to the music created at the time. 
It also demands of me that I continue to grow and learn every day, humbling, struggling, celebrating, enjoying, sweat, tears and all!
It is also some of the most playful fun I have had in my life, then becoming a healing process of experiencing life itself. 

 

The past year I seem to have gotten more and more focused on 'making it' ... lol.. but I think that is mostly due to not taking care of myself financially, so money became an obsession (coz I had none). <<<<<<<<<LAAAAAAAAMMMME! So here is me letting go of that focus, sorting out my life (i have decided I will find a part-time job if I need to, so I can free myself and my art from the burden of earning) hehe and again letting my creativity flow freely and be fun! Man life is SO FUNNY!! I have had the last 2 and half years more or less to create freely, without working on anything else. I have learned so much and made such beautiful things. I am truly happy and ready for the next phase. Things are going to be bigger and more gangsta than ever before! No doubts x

 

Check it out homies!!

Lady Bright - Song for our people 

 

Hey beauties,

 

Iam in NEXT LEVEL appreciation mode of all the amazing humans I have connected with along my way. I have been so incredibly blessed to know the amazing souls that I know, and there are so many of you!

 

 

I am the person I am today because of the blessed humans I have met along my way. I am eternally grateful for that.

There is so many of you that I miss so so much and would love to be with, appreciating you to your face in person. I would love so so much for some time to spend with you, drinking tea (coz its so cold right now where I am!!), sharing stories, aw man Id just grab you all up in a huge cuddle and hold you for a few hours.

 

It is hard to express how much gratitude I am feeling towards you all in a blog post! How many incredible people do you have in your life whose paths have crossed with yours, or who even walked with you for a moment and then life caused you to seperate? I love you guys so much, thank you for all you have given me.

 

Basically, I met a beautiful woman named Lisa Shalom and we created this song together about three days ago to release on my patreon. 
It started with me improvising a line into my 404 'Where have all the good ones gone?´'
Which turned into us thinking about the dear people in our lives that always seem to disappear as we walk along our own journeys. I chucked some piano chords down for the two parts and we co-wrote the song, brainstorming lyrics. Lisa played the wonky beat into my octatrack, I sung the bass for the first part and she sung the bass for the bridge, then she recorded the badass harmonies and man! I did some basic mixing and mastering and after about 12 hours in the studio we had a song.

PHEW!

 

But listening to it brings tears to my eyes, I don't have words - really - the song expresses better how I am feeling, and you AMAZING people that I know are in the place you need to be, spreading love and light and positivity where you are. Although I would love to be with you, I need to be doing my light work here for now. And i trust that you have your part of the world under wraps. 

 

I love you all so much. my heart is overflowing. 

 

TELL THE PEOPLE YOU APPRECIATE THAT YOU APPRECIATE THEM!! let's spread some light, humans x

It is our purpose.

 

I love you,

Announcing: LAWN - live web wide Concert Series, and a new collaboration Release 

(PUBLIC POST)

Hey beautiful people!

 

Thank you for being here.


I will keep the exciting news short..!

 

Point 1) A new video concert release by hannah and Shannon

Point 2) NEW LIVE concert series streamed from THE BUS. check point 2 below for details.

 

 

 

1) A Quick story:

 

Once upon a time there was a lonely traveller girl with an ukulele, who passed through a small city in Portugal. She found there a home and a family, so she stayed for a while. A special time passed, until another traveller girl with a guitarlele passed through, and needed a place to stay for the night. In no time they both discovered in one another, a desire to make the human race happier through their music, and they fell in love, and made some music babies, before disappearing off again into the horizon. The first girl is me, Shannon. The second girl is the amazing Hannah Jolanthe.

 

 

During this tale unfolding, a dear talented friend of mine LAZY EYE ( https://www.facebook.com/lazyeye.pt/ ) who makes AWESOME videos for humans, recorded us performing a couple of the songs we created.
And the first was released today!!!
It's a little number called "Birds" and we first played it on the street as an improvisation, which was later turned into a song.
