How Crystal Therapy Helped Me Become a Better Singer

How Crystal Therapy Can Make You a Better Singer

This is a final update to my crystals project! I was going to update each entry, but I thought this would be a nice, concise way to wrap things up. If you're new to this series, I started by interviewing a crystals expert on how crystal therapy might help me as a singer. I then spent a month working with four different crystals each week: Turquoise, Blue Topaz, Citrine and Tiger's Eye.[...]

6 Things I Learned After Releasing My First E-Book

YOU GUYS. My book is 2! As a person who has only ever had dogs, I have no idea what it’s like to raise children. Seeing my book-child turn two has been a milestone. Technically, Way Less Cowbell will turn 2 on April 29th.

Continuing my crystal therapy for vocalists, this week will be with Blue Topaz. If you want to see why I’m doing this, here is my initial post and here is my week with Turquoise. If you're new to this blog, I am just asking that you keep an open mind about my journey here. I have tried other alternative therapies for singers before so this is nothing new for me!

New Acoustic Cover – “I Thought I Knew it All” by Megadeth

An acoustic cover of Megadeth's "I Thought I Knew It All"

I'm excited to share this new song and video with you! If you'll recall, last year I did an acoustic cover of "All At Once" by Whitney Houston (you can check it out here if you want!) I grew up listening to Whitney Houston. I did not, however, grow up listening to Megadeth. My partner/co-writer, Aman, is a huge fan. He was kind enough to do the Whitney cover with me, so I did the Megade[...]
