IT'S BEEN A LONG TIME COMING
Updated: Oct 2
This is the start of my life. The life I am living for ME. This is me coming out into the world like I never have before. I am stripping down and being vulnerable. My music is being born. And it has truly been a long time coming.
Hi everyone. I'm Amelie. I will do my very best to get to know you and let you get to know me. Welcome to my first ever blog post!
I've learned many things this past year. The most important thing is probably that there is no selfishness in self love. But practicing self love is an art that demands the most of us. It's the hardest thing we can ever do. If I go back to any moment in time where I've acted in away I'm not proud of, and I am honest about what actually made me act that way, I find that on some level I wasn't loving toward myself in that moment.
I turned 40 this year, and a couple of years ago I decided to trade in my whole identity as an opera singer, all the hard work, time, energy and money I have spent since the age of 16, for a completely fresh start and a very uncertain path as a pop singer. I struggled to find my authentic voice. I worked my ass off to let go of and transform all the classical training that I suddenly felt was so unnatural and just not me. And although I have always created music, doing it with the intention to share it with the world was new. And I had to explore like we all do, to find my songwriter voice as well. 2024 will be the year when the real reveal of me as an artist happens and until then I will try to figure out how to navigate the pop industry, which I know nothing about, still. So, in this blog I will literally keep you posted on my quest to become the artist I now know I was born to be. Because it's never too late, and I will prove that!
Thank you for listening<3
