Paint, Glitter, And More Than A Touch Of Myles' Magic
OK so this post hasn't been strictly inspired by the news (as in the usual "State Broadcaster" or Mainstream Media News) but it has been inspired by some very interesting news about a very good friend of mine who happens to be a very good singer/songwriter - that is why it ended up in this category.

There are very few people who could easily turn me into a gibbering wreck in their presence if I am not careful.  Most of the people on that list are people who scare me to death for one reason or another.  However, there is one person on it who is the nicest, most down to Earth person I know.  She also happens to be a gorgeous, extremely talented, singer/songwriter.  Not only is she incredibly good-looking on the outside she has a gorgeous personality on the inside (put it this way - if she spends time with you she makes you feel like you are the most important thing in her world at that moment - and she remembers small details about you).

If you have never read this blog before (and/or you have never met me) you may not know that my favourite female singer is Kristyna Myles.  You may also not know that I count myself lucky enough to have been taken on her journey along with her (usually by her parents giving me lifts to some of her gigs).

Right at this moment in time I am honestly having a difficult job realising that the approximately 5 year old girl who I first remember seeing in church playing a keyboard (which - if you stood it on its end - would have been taller than her) has turned into a GT Award-winning and MOBO-nominated singer/songwriter.

Her latest venture is to take her fans (and friends) on a journey towards making her second album.  She has teamed up with an outfit called Pledge Music to start a Pledge-campaign to raise funds for the recording of "Paint A Brighter Day".  If you visit www.pledgemusic.com/projects/kristynamyles you will find some brillliant things to pledge for (including her painting a room in your house).  When you pledge you will find an exclusive video of one of the tracks on the album as well (she is putting one up every Sunday during the 60 day campaign).

I know I probably sound like a broken record but please support up and coming live music talent by seeing them perform in your local venues.  It is a better way of supporting talent than merely voting for people on things like "The Voice" or any of Simon Cowell's "Mock-fest" programmes ("X-Factor", "Britain's Got Talent", etc).  If you are lucky enough you may find yourself being taken on their journey with them.

Oh - one final thing - I would strongly advise you to see Kristyna Myles sing live before she starts singing at venues which charge extortionate prices to get into.
