Starting the Adventure with Em Rossi – Part 2

Optimized-emrossi_v2


As the second day began, I could tell the song was already beginning to find it’s magic. The morning was spent with Ryan and I working on synths and percussion. I walked around the studio space with Ryan as he opened drawers filled with an abundance of instruments, everyday objects, and many other things I could not tell you the name of.

One of the greatest things about being at Bear Creek is the peace it brings. There are no cars, no neighbors, no TV, or internet to distract you. The song that was being made was the sole focus inside the old converted barn. We slowly added the needed sounds here and there to encompass the bones of the track.

In the afternoon, multi-instrumentalist Kimo Muraki arrived and began his work. Starting on horns, Kimo kept grabbing different kinds of horns one after the other building an entire surging horn section by himself. Coming back into the main room he then picked up Ryan’s guitar and started trickling notes here and there on the pre-chorus. I will forever be jealous of his instrumentation. It’s always an incredible feeling when you hear how elevated a song becomes when the right sound is added onto it. It’s the feeling you get when you finally find that puzzle piece you’ve been searching for hours for.

The second main day of work on “No Longer The Same” was finished. After everyone had left the studio and my mom was in the treehouse on the other side of the property, I sat alone at the piano. There was nothing like that feeling of sitting at the piano bench entirely alone in a barn at midnight.

Don’t miss out on Part 3!

Time to start the adventure with Em Rossi! (Part 1/3)

Time to start the adventure!

The early wake up call to head to the airport that morning couldn’t tame the buzz that was running through me. Only a few days prior, Ryan Hadlock (producer for Vance Joy, Phillip Phillips, The Lumineers) called me and said he had a possible one week opening in his over booked schedule. Next thing I knew I was flying to the urban coastal landscape of Seattle, a place I had always dreamed of seeing.

The day we arrived we spent exploring the city and the next morning we began our journey outside the city to Bear Creek Studios. Out in the beautiful nothingness that was the countryside, we pulled onto a long windy dirt road. Our car cruised for a minute and then stopped at the large barn I had stared at many times through a computer screen. I was greeted by Ryan and his father who brought me through the doors of Bear Creek Studios for the first time.

I walked in, threw my bag in the corner of the upstairs loft, ran down the steps, and started the first day of production on “No Longer The Same.” I felt like my mind was floating as my body naturally moved through the day. I was still processing the fact that I was even there. Sitting at the bench of a beautiful Steinway, I listened to Ryan and Taylor Carroll, the engineer, talk to me through my headphones. Listening to the first clicks of the track I started to play the piano piece I had written in my hometown bedroom on a small electric Yamaha the week before I moved to Los Angeles.

It felt incredible to hear my finished piano melody playing through the speakers at the main console. I felt like I had finally woken up and fully realized where I was at. Ryan was sitting in his old armchair, a chair that looked like it had lived in the corner of that room it’s entire life, as Taylor was clicking away on the computer working on the day’s recordings. I had to let myself take in that moment because I knew very few artists get the chance to experience it. If only the walls could talk, they would tell stories from artists such as Lionel Richie, Soundgarden, Vance Joy, The Lumineers, Brandi Carlile, and The Foo Fighters.

From the beginning my co-manager said to me, “It’s a marathon not a sprint.” From standing in a tiny studio in Santa Rosa learning to record, to the first years of traveling to Los Angeles when I was 15, to suddenly losing my father and having my family’s life completely change, to knowing in my heart music was what I wanted to do, to getting myself back up to pursue it, and to the hours upon hours of stress, exhaustion, and fear trying to make the first beginnings click. All of us artists are fighting every day to make a career doing what we love. Standing there in the studio that first day was acknowledgment for myself. I could say to myself that I was good enough to be there because I had worked hard enough to get there.

There will be many more days of hard work to come, but this was another door I had opened…

Much love,

Em

Don’t miss out on Part 2 & 3!

SWC Winner announced!

SWC IMAGEN CHAMPION

DVOCALIST SUPERB: THE NEW SWC CHAMPION 2017!

The Latin Voices Smule Community presents the new absolute champion of Sing! competition “Smule World Championship 2017”  that took place during the months of July, August and September.

The Indonesian Team DVocalist Superb managed to become the reigning champion of SWC 2017, winning in “The Global Final” against the team LATIN VOICES CHIMERAS. Let’s review the glorious path of this team full of talented guys who enjoyed singing like each of us in Sing!

DVocalist Superb is formed by a group of 10 vocalists (Tri, Widi, Olive, Cincin, Hilda, Ega, Hexa, Venny, Bhisma & Septi) and was led by Olive they gave it their all with only one objective in mind: To become the champions of SWC 2017. The team signed up for the English version of SWC 2017 and was assigned to Zone 1-List A along with five other teams to compete against. This was the first challenge of DVocalist Superb. First, they knew they had to qualify for the next round and that included being among the top two in List A.

Although in the beginning it was a hard challenge due to the high amount of competitive talent, they managed to finally classify and advance to the next round and from that moment on for the remainder of the competitive weeks they continued a successful triumphant path getting much more closer to their goal. The team never gave up until becoming champions of Zone 1 of the English Version of SWC 2017.

To their surprise the team ended up against one of their own family, DVocalist Platinum whom were champions of Zone 2 and they both had to battle it out for the title of the English version. Finally they were able to break their limits to finally become the champions of the English version.

Still there was a final step; which was what the group had anxiously awaited since the beginning of the competition. DVocalist Superb had to go up against the representative of the Spanish version SWC 2017 Latin Voices Chimeras for the biggest title The Absolute Champion  SWC 2017. The team of 10 talented vocalists had only 2 weeks to prepare and sing a group song and was required to present on the day of the final. They finally presented a song in the Mashup category: “Bird set Free” obtaining great results and having been elected by the judges of the competition. The epic moment had finally come, the judges had to announce the results and the group became the absolute reigning champion of SWC 2017. Congratulations team!!!

As part of the organization of this competition we would also like to congratulate the champion of Zone 2 of the English Version: DVocalist Platinum, Latin Voices Chimeras for representing the Spanish Version and especially to all of the 192 teams. Also the judges who participated in this second edition of Smule World Championship. To finalize, we leave you with the winning group song from DVocalist Superb to enjoy:

“Bird Set Free (Mashup)” – (The Global Final) winning song

We will see you in 2018!

Sing Olympics 2017 – The Results

singg

Sing Olympics Winners 2017 

I was sitting on Vaios’ couch as we are doing the live stream for the Sing Olympics results on his youtube channel, and even though I knew who the winners were, I hadn’t listened fully to all the performances. At that moment, I was so impressed by the talent this competition brings together, and everything that we were doing celebrating it! At that moment I was really proud of what we were able to bring to the community. This is our second year with Pu’ukani hosting a show exclusively for Sing Olympics and releasing live results on his radio station www.pipeline2paradise.com. I have to say, it’s the most fun I have in this competition, actually getting to sit down, listen to all these amazing performances, knowing people from all over the world are gathering to listen too, gives me great satisfaction to be a part of it.

It is at this moment also that I realize it’s all completely worth it. Lulu @W0nderSparkle, Tyler @iSuperTC_Vicious, Renee @iSuperRenee, and I have been there 3 years of this competition, working really hard, and sometimes we can feel the pressure of all the work it is, but with the help of the rest of the staff, including this year with Charlotte @ACE_Charlotte, John @iSuperJohn, Josh @LOM_Joshy, Erica @eggysue, Yumi @itsyumibabyyy, Tori @_T0riPvP_ & our newest member Zaf @_MuTaS_, it was all possible. I thank every single person that helped out bringing this plan, that was quite complicated, to life.

What is Sing Olympics? If you don’t know, I think you should experience it. Most people describe it as the most stressful competition they have been in. Why? Because of the caliber of competitors that gather to go against each other, we have people who do amazing performances on the app, against people that actually do this for a living, or should be, and they all face the same challenges. It’s also 12 competitions in one, each one with a different music style or genre. And each competition is linked by participants being part of a team who accumulate points together. You compete for yourself, and for your group. The difference between being in a single competition, and Sing Olympics, is that whatever happens you have a whole group of people counting on you to represent them. And that’s where the pressure comes. However, it’s very rewarding, only consists of 4 rounds, and it can be fun!

A word from some of the Champs from Sing Olympics 2017

“Sing Olympics is unreal! Many people around the world have the opportunity to showcase their talents with the app! Personally, it helped me by pushing me to put my material out there. Pushed my boundaries and I’m proud of what I have done! I’m happy I participated and kept it going! Learned a lot about myself in the process” -Mirla
@MirlaLuna – Songwriting Champ

“Singing is my escape from whatever is going on in my life. Whatever emotions I feel, I release them in the lyrics where happy or sad. This was my very first competition and I’m so happy I was asked to do Sing Olympics because it taught me SO MUCH about control” -Terry
@TerryKaye – Soul Train Champ

“This year, I was so excited for Sing Olympics! I love the unexpected, so the Mystery category was a perfect experience for me. Every week, being thrown into something new and different, stretched my creativity and gave me the opportunity to make awesome music!” -Carissa Bennett
@CarissaBennettSings – Mystery Champ

“Sing Olympics definitely pushed me to think quickly and execute. Also, enduring this competition has made me appreciate how much effort and planning it takes to perform acapellas. But most importantly, Sing Olympics really opened my eyes (and ears) to the AMAZING talent in this community. For that, I am truly thankful!” -Alex
@AlexP_VE – Acapella Champ

“I was so happy to see that Sing Olympics included the Classical category again this year! It’s a wonderful way for those in Smule’s small classical community to compete and share their voices, that they have worked their whole lives, with the world. I hope it encourages those who may have maybe forgotten the joy of the classical music, to begin exploring this genre on the app. Thank you Sing Olympics for this outlet and your dedication to promoting all genres of music on Smule!” -Stephanie Rhodes
@StephanieLRhodes – Classical Champ

“Another amazing year of Sing Olympics, and another year of making some new incredible friends, creating and listening to some mind blowing entries, and being challenged to do new and inspiring music that in the end I was very proud of! Looking forward to next year!” -Sarah Cleary
@SarahCleary – Classical Champ

“The Best went home with Gold. The great stayed until the finals. The good tried their best. The losers quit…” – Xavier Calvillo
@ZaveTheWorld – Punk Champ

“It was an awesome experience to be a part of the Sing Olympics. I’m truly honored to have been able to captain and represent TheSound this year, and look forward to what next season brings.” -Theron Fox
@TheSound_Theron – Acoustics Champ

“It was the first competition for me on Smule. I took the category “songwriting” to see if I was able to write a song in 5 days! I have been writing for 5 months and I learned a lot of things with Sing Olympics. I’m french, I don’t speak English, it was a challenge for me to write in this language! I had fun! But I think the best was to listen to all the amazing talents! I downloaded every song. Thank you to all judges, thank you SING OLYMPICS!” – Aileen Murphy
@AILEEN_MURPHY – Songwriting Champ

The champs this year a variety of smulers, those who dedicate themselves to compete in the app, others whose first time becomes the one where they took “the gold”, and those who’ve won multiple times before like Jessica or Valli from The Voices. Check out our playlist before it’s gone, you won’t regret it. The talent is undeniable in this group of people & don’t miss the chance to compete next year!

Follow the Champs of Sing Olympics 2017!
