"When you understand the language, loving becomes learning too" - Me
Welcome to this new season’s first Couturian, after our annual downtime.
In this edition, I got a smooth-as-silk vocalist & wonderfull (learnable) CoutCam cover for you to #love; a multi-lesson “best-of-last-season” highlights-reel and one of the greatest piano intros of all time as the ROTW (riff of the week) to #learn; and one of our core ethoses explained to inspire and #live.
Let’s dive in!
#LOVE | ENJOYMENT & INSPIRATION
“What I’m listening to” is a weekly artist spotlight. Musicians that reign my personal playlist and that I think deserve a mention and some extra attention.
Artist: Hunter Elizabeth
Song Tip: Wait For The Moment
I was introduced to her STUNNING - and by that I mean out-of-this-world-amazing - voice by my Scary Pockets buddies, when they featured her in their “Stories” series (bonus recommendation) singing one of my favorite VulfPeck tunes “Wait For The Moment.”
Completely blew me away.
Enjoy Hunter Elizabeth (and the great crew from Stories)
Playthroughs. Where #loving becomes #learning.
Stevie Wonder - Overjoyed | Instrumental Cover
While I already made a tutorial for this one quite a while ago, I got mesmerized by the beauty of this song again recently, and decided to give it a go.
Animated in “CoutCam” fashion for you to see exactly what I’m doing to serve as an inspiration to #learn from.
