What woman would you nominate for the Anchorstone & Star award? No doubt you’ve several in mind. Tell us a little about those special women – we can’t wait to hear about them!
Anchorstone & Star
Do you want to hear a picture of a walking inspiration?
She’s an open invitation to a heart that looks to love
She embodies truth and style. She is solid gold, she’s wild
She’s the quintessential woman, aunt or mother, loyal friend
You know when she’s around as faces light up everywhere
She has a place for everyone. Everyone has a place for her
When she wraps her warmth around you, you never want to leave. Her
Belly laugh is rolling thunder, casual chat a summer breeze
Yes, lovely lady, I’m talking about you
Trumpeting your praises – the whole country should be too
Awarding you a gong for how remarkable you are!
In our honours list you’ve won the Anchorstone & Star
You have a certain style – sort of ‘humble universal’
Embracing every goddamn soul and showing them you care
I cannot put my finger on what it is about you
It’s a privilege to know you, and a treat to have you near
Yes, lovely lady …
You have so much to teach me that I cannot find in writing
And I get it by osmosis over fresh date scones and tea
You’re relaxed & grounded, cruising through a list that’s overflowing
That reminds me, time is going. Friends! Your attention please …
If this song is pretty it’s her beauty – I’m in debt to her and
Call on you to call her name out loud, applaud and cheer
She says she’s just an ordinary person. We know better
She’s a winner, and we wish her her own stone & starbright year
Yes, lovely lady …
You’ve heard of our Kids Sing Bob Dylan album? We did a video of it too – The Starbugs Sing Mr Tambourine Man. It went viral. BUT once we clocked over a million hits, it was taken offline!? We were informed, (probably by a machine) that it had ‘unsuitable content for children.’ Take a look and see what you think … Luckily a keen fan posted it on their page and You Tube hasn’t caught up with them yet – so take a look while you can!
AI, (Artificial Intelligence) systems decide what music & videos are placed where nowadays. I guess AI is experiencing birthing problems …
Meanwhile let’s credit the kids. One viewer, commented, “That is simply incredible. I’m a lifetime Dylan fan, and I’ve never heard a better lead vocal of Tambourine Man than that little girl is doing. She is a truly great singer.” Yes. At only 9 years old, Jessie has already won several world singing competitions … Then there’s Sarah, Ben, Roisin and Jessica – they’re all fantastic! Pop into the UCA Music website and take a listen to the sample audio clips: make sure you scroll right down (on the thin red line), to hear them take Forever Young, and many other tracks, into new realms.
Make their day boosting their viewing numbers, leaving a comment, and spreading the word.
NOVEMBER: The single is out – yey! I can’t wait to get onto the next one; I’m working on chord charts for all my songs in preparation, as I’m not sure what song we’ll tackle next …
Working on kids songs in the studio at present, plus composing and recording some songs to help children learn to read.
Here’s David Antony Clark (left), sound engineer, Geoff Duncan and your truly. Geoff is about to launch power-chord land on electric guitar – Geoff, you’re great! And so is Evan Williams, our wonderful drummer. Thanks guys!
