I share a recent acoustic recording of this song:
My new vocal coach, Hannah, was giving me such wonderful guidance. I was able to maintain my style, while at the same time incorporating new habits that increased my confidence.
Recently, I asked Hannah to help me with an issue I noticed on my recordings. I told her that sometimes I felt like I was holding onto words longer than I needed to.
Hannah listened to my song “Alabaster Seashell” and gently told me that I was “over-singing.” She said it would be easier to hear my lyrics if I used a more spoken approach.
It was such a simple and beautiful concept.
I share audio from my lesson with these brief clips below:
In 1983, I painted seashells for a series of prints. I was able to use one of my paintings as the “Alabaster Seashell.”
My first album will be this one and is currently being mastered. I’m so excited about sharing my music soon with the world.
I take this opportunity to share more of my seashell paintings, my handwritten lyrics with photos, and a recent video performance of this song.
Below is the original 1980 song sheet for Alabaster Seashell. I called it “Untitled” and it only had 3 verses. In 2010, I finished composing my song!
