Margaux - Love Deep Flows - Acoustic Session 2 (Video)

Watch 'Love Deep Flows'

This video is the latest addition to my podcast in iTunes and also the first. I thought I would share the acoustic version of 'Love Deep Flows' with you whilst working away on my new album 'Margaux With An X'.

The acoustic version is slightly different from the album version, in particular the last section of the song, which hasn't got the change of key - and of course it hasn't got the whole instrumentation. I first wrote 'Love Deep Flows' shortly after moving to London, leaving Paris. I finished it a year later with co-writer GP15, which was to mark the beginning of our songwriting collaboration for my first album 'My Difference'.

'Love Deep Flows' was shot by the very talented video maker and TV presenter Damian Thomas; Make-up and hair by my favourite make-up artist, Beth Margetts.

Margaux - Unrevealed - Acoustic Session 1 (Audio)

Listen to 'Unrevealed'

Feel free to listen and download the acoustic version of 'Unrevealed' a song that I wrote last year with a view to placing it with another artist. After finishing writing it, I decided to keep it in my repertoire for inclusion into a future album.

The full band version exists as well, which will be available on my download store in the near future.

Welcome Message

Hi and welcome !

I would like to use this blog as a platform to demonstrate that nowadays it is possible to achieve a lot quickly, professionally with very little financial means. I will explain how I am approaching the creative process and how I tackle the marketing and business aspects in the music industry. And all this for very little money using to my full advantage the internet, the new technology and several creative softwares.

Today, thanks to the internet, computers and mobile devices everything is possible. The technology evolves quickly and you always have to have your finger on the pulse. As a recording artist I have in the past been extremely frustrated as to the cost of putting an album together. Very expensive, indeed. Plus the fact that you need a whole 'army' of people to make things happen. It takes time, sweat and money.

Yes, it is possible to do everything (or most of it) yourself ! I will show you how !

Stay tuned for more news... in the meantime, feel free to visit
