I'm back....after a 10 year hiatus. I'm writing songs again (as opposed to instrumentals) and I'm even thinking about singing live again....how I used to love getting up on stage...I lived for it. Now, my nerves are getting the best of me. I know all the components that go into performing...the do's and don'ts...how to grab my audience...but it's been so long..I could get up on that stage and open my mouth and nothing comes out (I remember that occurring the first time I got up on stage) ....my vibrato, uncontrollable...my nerves shot to hell; It's like starting all over again. I also want to build up a new repertoire. My songs from the 70's need a dance band..and my 80's songs still get requests after all these years.... and I do love the songs in Italian I did in the 90's....but I need something new. I just want to sit at a piano and play....simply for the love of it.
