👽The Chain, Performed by Ardin Patterson👽

👽 I’ve been trying to upload a little more consistently. I originally did a vocal cover of The Chain to a piano track, but decided to teach myself to play an acoustic version on guitar (my keyboards too big for my studio and my skills are pretty rusty).

I absolutely love this song. I haven’t heard a version I dislike actually. My top two covers of it would definitely have to be the one by Three Days Grace and the one by Evanescence. The each created slightly different moods while still staying true to the original by Fleetwood Mac. Plus these were two of my favourite bands growing up!

🌼 White Rabbit 🌼 – Jefferson’s Airplane Cover

Lyrics

One pill makes you larger
And one pill makes you small,
And the ones that mother gives you
Don't do anything at all.
Go ask Alice
When she's ten feet tall.
And if you go chasing rabbits
And you know you're going to fall,
Tell 'em a hookah smoking caterpillar
Has given you the call.
Call Alice
When she was just small.
When the men on the chessboard
Get up and tell you where to go
And you've just had some kind of mushroom
And your mind is moving low.
Go ask Alice
I think she'll know.
When logic and proportion
Have fallen sloppy dead,
And the White Knight is talking backwards
And the Red Queen's "off with her head!"
Remember what the dormouse said:
"Feed your head. Feed your head. Feed your head"

❀Come As You Are – Nirvana Cover❀

I covered this the other day in my basement studio haha. You may or may not hear my sister playing Assassin’s Creed in the background.

I had this song in my head for a week and kept imagining what it would sound like if I tried playing around with it a little…and this is what happened.

Heart is Now Available

Heart is available to listen to on Youtube and Instagram! The artwork for this project was created by my lovely sister @nuggiedraws. You can find her on Instagram!

There are three songs in total: Heart, Artist and Juliet’s Song.

I wrote Heart and Juliet’s Song back when I was in the 10th Grade.

I wrote Juliet’s Song for an animated project I made for my English class at the time. Initially it was played on the piano and yes, it is based on the play Romeo and Juliet. I re-recorded and used the song again in university for one of my Shakespeare course finals…and then decided to return to it again to create an acoustic version on the guitar.

Heart, the title track I wrote the same year. If I’m being honest, it isn’t the most emo song I’ve ever written. It’s pretty sad though. It was one of the first songs I wrote with my guitar. The song kept resurfacing over the years at different points in my life. At times I wish the song were longer, but at the same time I don’t think it needs to be. It always just felt right. It’s definitely the most personal song I’ve released. I actually shared the song when I entered the Zepeto Idol competition on Instagram a while back.

Artist I wrote initially as a poem this year and ended up putting music to it on a whim. I actually wrote the song while procrastinating a chapter edit for my debut. Whenever I get stuck on a scene, I try writing something else, like a poem to inspire me. In this case it worked but then I ended up with this recording hanging out on my laptop…and then, I decided that for once I’d actually share the music I’d written versus a cover song.

I hope you enjoy listening to Heart and that you’ll check out @nuggiedraws (I have her gif on my blogs homepage! Cute right?)

Character Mood Playlist: Angry Vibes.

Someone isn’t very happy. Well, I guess that means it’s time for the ANGRY VIBES playlist.

Some character’s lose their cool a lot faster than others, so I’ll be selecting songs that reflect the few moments of rage each of them have.

Enjoy!

#1: Let You Down

#2: O My Heart

#3: Ghost of Love

#4: Broken inside

#5: Coming Undone

Character Mood Playlist: Romantic Vibes

Welcome to the Romantic Vibes playlist. I’m going to try and limit this to only a handful of songs. 5 max. I’ve been trying to think of what songs I wanted to put on this one but I keep finding new ones!

I’m also going to attempt to pick 1 per artist. Sometimes I feel like entire albums suit a particular character haha…but this is a more general playlist for the series as a whole and needs to reflect more than one of my OCs.

#1: Art Class by Beabadoobee

#2: Moon and Back by Alice Kristiansen

#3: I Will Spend My Whole Life Loving You by Kina Grannis ft. Imaginary Future

#4: Let Me Love You Like A Woman by Lana Del Rey

#5: Worry by Mother Mother

That’s about all the lovey dovey stuff I can handle today haha.
