Deano’s Vlog 3

It’s Vlog time! Grab yourself a cuppa and join me as I share the before and after of my neuro-physiotherapy appointment, for Parkinson’s Disease. https://youtu.be/vTYOdXRd4kI

Duet: Adagio

I recently learnt of an incredible musical talent; Lara Fabian. Lara is a Belgian-Canadian singer and recording artist. One of the songs she has become synonymous with is 'Adagio.' I have been connected with a wonderfully talented singer, named Rioger, on Smule singing site. Rioger invited me to join him in singing Adagio. I was... Continue Reading →

Something is Happening

Something is happening.That is becoming clear to me.Is it life shattering?For I’m just not how I should be. My writing seems so small.I find I’m cramping up a lot.I feel as though I’ll fall.Temperature control is shot.

Technically, this is the template I recorded for a duet but I think it stands just as well as a solo, even though there are reduced lyrics as a consequence. What do you think? Take a look at the video. From a... Continue Reading →

Solo: A Different Corner

I decided to try to sing the entire solo piece. This is such a beautiful song, by George Michael. From a Parkinson's perspective, this was all about moving from the softer to stronger tones, and back, as seemlessly as possible. The good news; a year ago I could not get through this without coughing and... Continue Reading →

Outsider

When I first walked into a waiting room for my first post diagnosis meeting with my neurologist, I was struck by one thing. Very elderly, grey haired people. Nobody looked like me. Everyone was easily in their eighties and they were of grey hair, wizened faces and I simply stood out 'like a sore thumb'.Where... Continue Reading →
