Hey all... I'm taking a break from recording for a bit. I've done so much in 9 months, I can't even begin to explain the amazement and awesomeness I've had with you all!! I know I'm a mediocre singer but so many of you took me under your wing and taught me so many things and played with me and loved on me. You all seriously changed my life. I miss Mykk.... Idk... Whatever he was, and whatever you all are, it is something close to the soul tie of family to me. You mean so much to me. And because of you, I've gained the confidence to try to sing live again. A band accepted my audition and we are going to try to play here in Indiana. I'm nervous b/c they are better than me. The drummer is this rich doctor that seems to know every song. lol... The keyboard player rules the roost but is gregarious yet humble. The lead guitar player seems more my speed of just chilling and seeing what is going on. I can tell he is a good guy and a leader that can help me. The bass player is sweet and quiet but solid. I find I look to him when I screw up and need forgiveness. :))) A forgiving smile is always the healing ointment. Anyway.... I just wanted to say I love you all so much and appreciate all your support you gave/give me. I hope I make you proud as I take this new venture. I would and could not be here without you!! I'll be back soon to work on your songs, if you want me to!! In the meantime, I will come to support and love on you all and what you are doing. You are the best thing that has happened to me in so long... Hugs N' Kisses Your sis, Jen

Good luck, Sis. Never, ever run yourself down like that. You are a FAB singer and will make any live band proud, I'm certain. "The bass player is sweet and quiet but solid. I find I look to him when I screw up and need forgiveness." Well ... that sounds like a perfect description of most of us bass players, to me. Don't forget to keep in touch with us all here and send regular updates. Wishing you all the very best. XXX

Hi Jen. Very nice words. Good luck! When I read that you think the other band members are better than you, I think this is very good. It's a recommandation I read in book from a German sax player. He said something like: "You should always try to be the worst musician in a band. You'll wonder how quickly these guys will accept you as one of them!". To have great musician around you will make you evolve :) All The Best Andreas xoxoxo :<3

P.S. I think you by far underestimate yourself. You are a great singer and it has always been a pleasure to work with you!

I miss Mykk too. What a fantastic tribute you are leaving here for him. He is really proud of it I am sure. We will all miss your smiling face and great vocal tracks here for sure until you return!!! Just make sure you do return...I don't want to have to drive all the way out to Indiana just to find you to say hello!! Your version of "Running Out Of the Darkness" is very special to me, and I will always enjoy having it on my playlist:):) And as far as your talent, never doubt it, you got it girl!! Just have fun with it!!! Rock on!!!

Ahh .. you are gonna love it, Jen. These seem like all good guys and very talented.. and so they MUST think of you in the same way! (very talented). Get 'in the zone' and stay there and you will be fine. Keep in mind that people do not come to listen in order to be critical - they come to forget the work week and the 9 to 5 treadmill .. your task is to take them away - the WANT you to take them on a journey .. so be your wacky self and stay in that 'zone' and in that zone you can do - no wrong! Confidence comes from - being yourself - and you will find they LOVE that! Nail yourself to the bass player and drummer because THEY drive the music. And THANK YOU for spreading so much LOVE, here at kompoz.

Good luck Jen. You would be a great asset to any band. Do your best but enjoy the trip. Life is too short not to.

At 81 years of age, I can't allow myself to reflect on the things I should have done in my life. I am so happy you have chosen to join a band and live your dream. All the best to you!

Sounds like a great lineup, good luck with it not that you'll need luck (especially with a rich doctor drummer haha, he's bound to have mics & PA). Please keep us updated on recordings and videos. Mykk was a drummer that was physically unable to play anymore but found a way to express his love for music through computers. I miss him also.

Good luck with your new venture, Jen! I hope that you find it really rewarding and fun. And that you do come back here when time permits, as it's been great working with you and your voice is fantastic! I miss Mykk too and really enjoyed the work that we did on The Journey. Take care Simon
