Have a happy and merry 24th December! To me it felt like an early Christmas present, when right at the beginning of this advent calendar one of the greatest bands I know reposted one of my posts! So today I wanna say thank you Arrested Development and thanks to all of you who were following me for the last 24 days! Thank you for your kind comments and reposts! You are all very appreciated and I wish you happy Holidays and a merry Christmas! See you in 2017!
Have an anticipating 23rd December! There is no pleasure like anticipation! I've recorded today's advent calendar post a few days ago anticipating my trip to warm and sunny California... well guess what... it's cold and rainy here LOL, but it doesn't really matter, does it: You Are The Sunshine Of My Life - Steve Wonder live cover by Gee Blaire
Have a beloved 22nd December! The holidays are getting closer. If that means you are getting ready for the feast(s) life is good, and it's even better if you are able to spend that time with your beloved ones. Next2U by LAPS ft. Gee Blaire
Have a friendly 21st December! Reading the news can be tough these days. To get rid of the thought that everything is just bad I write a song, meet my very nice and talented friends from all over the world and record it. Then I remember there are many good people and good things going on in this world which aren't mentioned in the news. This World Of Yours by Gee Blaire (original)
Have a smiling-back-at-you 20th December! It sounds too simple, but in my opinion the greatest gift you can give is a smile, daily: Smile - Charlie Chaplin covered by Gee Blaire
Have a groovy 19th December! Today's advent calendar post is about the beat. There are no lead vocals, so feel free to collaborate. I just love that groove with its reversed sounds. I had to cover it: Like it used to be - Amarie covered by Gee Blaire
Have a patient 18th December! "Patience is not the ability to wait, but the ability to keep a good attitude while waiting" - Joyce Meyer "The scariest thing about distance is that you don't know wheter they'll miss you or ferget you" - Nicholas Sparks I miss you - Gee Blaire (original)
Have simply a safe 17th December! I've arrived safely in California! And again: it's that time of the year of retrospects. On my long distance flight I was recalling my first steps in Los Angeles, my classes at the Musicians Institute in Hollywood, my first music production project, my first self-made music video...: Keep It Simple by Gee Blaire (original)
Have a willful 16th December! Since I've started walking I went pretty willfully my own way. My conviction: listen to your heart and then go for it. So I'm posting today's advent calendar post on my way to California. I go my way by Gee Blaire (original)
Have a peaceful 15th December! I'm not a fan of complaining, but sometimes it helps to just cry out loud... the louder the better... yeah it's really good for your peace of mind sometimes. Anyway I thought it's time for some Rock music in today's advent calendar post: Cry Baby - Janis Joplin covered by Flashgarden What a song! What a era! what an artist!
Have a reminiscent 14th December! The countdown to Christmas is on! It's that time of the year of retrospects and when you go up in the attic to get the nostalgic Christmas decoration to glid and trim and trim... so today's advent calendar is kind of a repost, but you get the special full-length Xmas edition: The Simpsons Theme Song - a cappella cover by Gee Blaire
Have a jill-ed 13th December! Sometimes I cover to create a different version of a song and learn to find my own voice. Sometimes I cover to copie and learn by listening to someone else's voice: It's love - Jill Scott covered by Gee Blaire Definitely on my Xmas list: concert tickets to a live concert of #JillScott and her band. I appreciate her style, her lyrics, her voice, her music... an outstanding artist, a great inspiration!
Have a f***ing good 12th December! Usually I'm nice, but I admit it, there are days I use strong language... so my parental advisory, it you don't like explicit content than skip todays advent calendar post and tune in tomorrow again: U F***ed Me Up by Gee Blaire (original) #mondaymorning
Have a quiet 11th December! It's a rainy Sunday in Switzerland and it's time for a ballad in this year's advent calendar: Don't Explain - Billie Holiday covered by Gee Blaire. This jazz standard is one of the most beautiful, bittersweet and very saddest love songs I know
Have a fresh 10th December! Today's post is an original song again. Since yesterday's Advent Calendar post was a re-cover of a cover of mine, this one is so recent, it's not even released yet, still work-in-progress: What Do You Want by Gee Blaire. I want music production, vocal arrangements, performance and audio engineering all in one song! What do you want?
Have a useful 9th December! I love recycling, second hand, flea market and all kind of reusable stuff, that's why today's advent calendar post is an a-cappella cover of a cover of mine: Hold Up - Beyoncé re-covered by Gee Blaire. Check out my youtube channel for the first cover. Which one do you prefer?
Have a lively 8th December! Today's advent calendar post is a live performance, because it's flu season. Well, ever wondered what a singing teacher does when students aren't able to come to their lesson... jamming and practicing her humble piano playing: If i ain't got you - Alicia Keys live cover by Gee Blaire. #getwellsoon
Have a beautiful 7th December! Today's advent calendar post is about favorite songs. Some come and go, some stay with you: On&On by Erykah Badu covered by Gee Blaire. Knowledge Wisdom Understanding 360°
Have a cheerful 6th December! It's St Nicholas' Day! I've been an aweful good girl all year, so it's time to have some fun with a Xmas song: Santa Baby by Joan Javits & Philip Springer covered by Gee Blaire
Have a wonderful 5th December! Today's advent calendar post is not an a-cappella version, since I'm loving making covers in general, because it's a great way to learn a lot about musical arrangement, production and sounds: Tom's Diner by Suzanne Vega covered by Gee Blaire.
Have a happy 4th December! Today's advent calendar post is dedicated to all my family and friends who have birthday today... there are quite a lot... that's why I made an a-cappella cover of Steve Wonder's Happy Birthday song. All the best to you Diana, Roli, Pädu....and to all of you who's birthday is in December... Myria, Julie, Christine... enjoy your special day!
Have an awesome 3rd December! It's time for an original :) and since I've started off this musical advent calendar with a-cappella cover versions, the first original is going to be an a-cappella version too: Upside Down But Ready by Gee Blaire
Have a great 2nd December! I made an a-cappella cover of Rebirth of Slick by Digable Planets as part of this year's advent calendar. I covered the song years ago with my trio and now a few days ago a friend of mine was talking about his Digable Planets concert visit and inspired me to rediscover the song.
Have a lovely 1st December! I made an a-cappella version of Goyte's song Somebody I Used To Know. that little music video is part of this year's Advent calendar, so be prepared for more to come :)
