Music to my ears: Corneille Giveaway!!!

One thing for sure is that I love music! I love all types and especially artists that have a story behind their music. When I am working on filling my customer's orders I like to pop in a great CD and brew a perfect cup of tea, when these two things happen I am most productive.

I had the pleasure of receiving the new CD The Birth of Corneille. Corneille's music is soulful, smooth and easy to listen to. The lyrics get in your head and you can't get them out, which is fine by me since I really enjoyed the entire CD. Corneille is an artist that has withstood much tragedy yet took his grief and turned to music. Corneille's family members were killed in Rwanda during the genocide in 1994, and he alone escaped first to Kinshasa, and then to Germany, where he was taken in by some family friends. Here is a quote from the artist:

"Music has been the place where I could go to hide and forget about the world. I couldn't make sense of a majority of the things that happened to me, so I used music as a shield. But over time, music has become a vehicle to channel out everything that I've been keeping from myself for all these years. And the new album is definitely the most honest, real assessment of everything that's happened in my life, because I'm not trying to hide as much." Corneille

You can learn more about Corneille at Corneille music.

Here from ILCW and more than happy to enter the giveaway!

My favorite type of music (currently) is lite/meditation sounds. It sooths me as I try to accomplish the twenty-thousand things on our to-do list!

I'm all about jazz. Vocal, not contemporary.

I follow!

I can't pick a favorite type of music...for me, it varies with my mood, the task, the company, the phase of the moon...

I'm going through a nostalgic phase, right now, though, and listening to vintage country music that my parents played when I was little...Patsy Cline, Jim Reeves, Charlie Pride, Johnny Cash. And I feel about 7 years old, when I do. Inconvenient, when I'm the adult with two preschoolers!

*To contact me, when you draw my name, (Ha!) go to my profile and there's an email link, I think.
