    Foundations of Feelings…

    By now I am so used to people asking me questions related to my life as a musician or as a transwoman so when I am sitting behind a keyboard it’s not that easy. However, when I am tired I do find it a lot easier to write whatever I am thinking so without further a do, it’s time to take a swig of Ocean Spray anti-dioxident cranberry juice which is VERY good for feminine hygiene and get on with it…. There is SO much happening in the world of Ethereal right now and I truly believe this is because I have asked the universe for support. At times I…

    It’s a long road and there’s no harm in taking a break once in a while….

    because when you feel like you’re down on your luck and life’s frustrations are really getting to you …then why not? Kit Kat bars are on me! Ok, so where are we? Let’s recap…. JANUARY saw Ethereal working on her 68+ demos and then coming up with how to group them into albums which then became ideas for concept albums. (TODAY: Fractured Future? is the first and after reinventing herself again with having minimal beats instead of dubstep and DnB ones, has now got proper dusted recordings of the first 2 songs off the album online!) Ethereal got herself some gigs booked via FB and has since performed at local…

    Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

    Me and my partner Carole Cross (friends for life….just got an upgrade 😉❤️) Hello again Pulsateers! The snow has finally arrived which has put a big enough smile on my face to decide that I need to update YOU on what’s happening in the world of Ethereal…. As the title states….I am technically starting all over again and I strongly believe I can achieve what I want for the time being without the use of mind boggling social media! Yes, Ethereal is still gigging but only until July in Time for my birthday on the 16th then I have decided that I will be performing from the comfort of my…

    Painting By Numbers

    Ethereal’s updated look (Credits: Robin Tapp) It’s been helluva week and things just keep getting better and better! It all began with an arranged photoshoot that at best was improvisational even though I encouraged myself to ‘rehearse’ which outfits I was going to wear the night before. However, when one adds make up and wigs the next day, it all changes 😂 I must say it was quite exhausting but had a lot of fun being able to express my creative side as much as I can and without much further a do, I am proud to present a few photos: < xperimenting with UV lighting (Credits: Robin Tapp) White…

    Fractured Future? – Review by Inner Face Publishing

    So happy to share this with ALL of you out there and a big THANK YOU to Jenifer Divine for the review!!! what I’m grooving on NOW:     Ethereal– FRACTURED FUTURE?       FRACTURED FUTURE? is a sublime affair. The newest 8 song mini-album from Poole/Bournemouth-based trans musical artist Ethereal comes off both ambient and insistent, demanding attention as it imbues the moment with a lush, albeit suitably sparse, sonic palette at once uncluttered, yet urgent and poignant. The first song, “Unnecessary Blues” is a misnomer, for it is neither blues nor unnecessary-  it IS a vital track w/Bjork-ish production touches and haunting vocal musings about life’s lessons learned and oftimes resisted. Up next is “Shatter Into Pieces”,…

    Head Rush

    Hello and welcome back to another beautiful blog by yours truly!! Over the Christmas holidays, I had been slaving away working on 68 (yes 68!) ‘demos’ …..experimenting ….not sticking to one genre and so on…. It took me a while to figure out what to do with them and finally last week, I decided to release them as concept albums! These will be: 1: Fractured Future? (depression and suicide) 2: Syndicate Sonatas (my messages to the world around me) 3: Chamber Rhythms (songs about love) 4: Foundation Of Feelings (songs about love from friends and family) 5: Phoenix, Reawakening (songs about my transgender experiences) 6: Host to the Machine (songs…

    When the Water’s Calm

    Hello again and welcome to another update from Ethereal HQ! I’m an amateur (lover in French) of music and I’m proud of it. I have ALOT to learn but then don’t we all? At 37 years old, I am still young at heart and I’m obsessed with Ethereal….yup, I listen to my own songs pretty much every day but then I do listen to other acts for inspiration of course. So, it’s still the beginning of a new year which sees Ethereal being ravenous for more gigs, more exposure as well as seeking a part time job because one has to fund their life and career right? 😉 On the…

    Doggy Style!

    Good morning all!! Hope you’re adjusting well to yet another new year and even though it’s now the year of the dog, try not to bitch too much about it 😂 So, I finally feel like I have been awakened early from my hibernation and am slowly peeling off the dead skin left behind from last year’s events. Before I am even going to let any of you listen to my songs, I need to listen to them over and over again until they all give me goosebumps AND THEN I shall unleash them like little cute Dalmatian puppies upon thee! (Cute evil wannabe laugh) Even though I was technically…

    Feel the Love Within Yourself

    As Star Wars: The Last Jedi is trending at the moment I would like to share with you why I am a semi- Star Wars fan and I shall use that to introduce this blog. I believe that the force of the Jedi is based upon qi or chi which is what the Shaolin monks amongst others define as energy. All types of energy …..in this case…positive and negative can be used in different ways and of course there can be no positive without negative and vice versa. The previous week has been all about using that energy in the ‘right’ way and how to overcome the negative ones. This…
