C Tann-Starr's Outside Blog


Hello Lovlies. Whatcha Doing? I'm Making Music (among other things...)

I have to get back into the studio but I figured I'd pop in and say hello and find out what yall have been up to while I am working. We're planning another road trip, so I have to get all of my backlogged posts up before I go. That is a lot of NY, MD, VA, NC and SC eye candy to chat about (LOL).

Four new tracks are being mastered so I have to get back to my session. We are on a tight schedule. My lead singer is coming in for Thanksgiving so I have to have the music finalized so I can send over the wave files for her review. Sometimes I arrange music in the "wrong key" and have to swap it out for another octave depending upon how she feels about the groove and the range she wants to sing in (LOL). I'm thinking since I owe you guys 5 posts I should see if we can wrap up the 5th song for my gal pal in SC. That would be lovely. I have the lead on 4 of the others so I really need to get my butt back in there and put my headphones back on. I like instrumentals but my fan mail is full of people waiting to hear us sing. So we're writing original content and singing a few public domain covers to keep them interested and happy. My iTunes project is mad fun. You guys should create your own. Seriously... :-)

YouTube is on the agenda for this afternoon (after I get the little minions from school - LOL). I also have clients I need to take house hunting so I may not be back to play until dinner time... Will be lurking off and on in the Rain and serial commenting during break time.

Enjoy your day, sweetie pies. I am having a lot of fun enjoying mine. Will teach you how to monetize your blog with music later. ;-)

C- I have one ? for you :    DO YOU EVER SLEEP??

I just took the time to go to a few of your links (Amazon, Jango Music), and I'm in total amazement and admiration.  What am I doing? Just trying to figure out how to do one task to your 20!

Posted by Kathy Streib, Home Stager - Palm Beach County,FL -561-914-6224 (Room Service Home Staging) almost 11 years ago

Glad to hear you're mixing your creativity with motherhood and real estate.  My son writes and sings his original music and sells real estate too.  Can't wait to hear yours.

LOL @ Kathy. I just signed a two year agreement with BMI regarding licensing my songs. I have a lot to learn about how the industry works. My eyes crossed after reading the electronic contract, but I perked right up after reading the royalties PDF (LOL). It appears I have a lot of work to do to try and break into mainstream radio. ;-)

Norma, I am trying very hard to create passive income for my children to enjoy. Looking forward to spoofing some music spam with the gang and sharing my recording artist adventures (LOL). I am what the industry refers to as a triple threat: Artist, Writer, Producer (LMAO). The Rain may get very interesting next year when our album is released. Trying to get the singles out. ;-)

Hey, C! Good to see you around these parts!  Just READING about your life makes me tired.  I need a nap!


I look forward to hearing more about your music adventures....have a great afternoon w/the minions! :)

Posted by Coleen DeGroff, Haile Plantation Real Estate - Gainesville FL (Coldwell Banker M.M. Parrish Realtors) almost 11 years ago

Coleen, just sent Mikey to grab the kids. Still studying the contract rules. I need clarification about Facebook, Jango, YouTube, AR and a couple of other spots I like to play on. I want to make sure my fave places are free and clear of any complications from my embedding habits (LOL). I have to protect the bay-bays right to re-blog me and not get chased down for performance rights royalties (LMAO). Until you read a representation contract you have no idea how many issues really are out there. You think you know because of all of the copyright conversations going on here but I've just discovered there is a whole bunch of stuff we had no idea about... Holy cow... Can't wait to catch up my blog posts. :-)

Posted by C Tann-Starr (Tann Starr & Associates, Inc.) almost 11 years ago

C...that is my question...DO you ever sleep.  When I read one of your posts, it is amazing the energy  you spread in your posts.  I am recovering from surgery, and believe me I wish I had one tiny tiny ounce of your energy. 

Posted by Rebecca Gaujot, Realtor®, Lewisburg WV, the go to agent for all real estate almost 11 years ago

Rebecca, I nap and work in 20 minute intervals (LOL) ;-)

Posted by C Tann-Starr (Tann Starr & Associates, Inc.) almost 11 years ago

I plan on blogging on my music stuff some day. Ah the dream job - working at home ON MUSIC.



Posted by Stephen Kappre, Helping You Home (KW Hometown) almost 11 years ago

Steve, looking forward to the posts and what an awesome bit of musical eye candy. GO FOR IT!!! ;-)

Posted by C Tann-Starr (Tann Starr & Associates, Inc.) almost 11 years ago

Carolyn, you'll have to post some of that musical work here as well so we can all enjoy it. I look forward to your as always creative output.

Posted by Gary Woltal, Assoc. Broker Realtor SFR Dallas Ft. Worth (Keller Williams Realty) almost 11 years ago

"C" --- I agree with Gary ---and also with the others -- When do you sleep?  I'll be watching.

Hi, Carolyn. You are so very talented! I'm constantly amazed by your interests and abilities. I enjoy reading your posts and seeing what you are up to. Best of luck in all that you do.

Posted by Leslie Helm, Real Estate For Trail Riders (Tennessee Recreational Properties) almost 11 years ago

Good luck with your music.  I told my son about janga and he said he had heard of it.  I think their demo is almost done yeah!  Can you make it to any of the performances this weekend?  I can't visit much but the musical is awesome and you would love it.

Posted by Paddy (Patricia) Pizappi, Real Estate Associate Broker Hudson Valley NY (Better Homes and Gardens Rand Realty) almost 11 years ago

I'm looking forward to hearing what you've been up to.  This time last week we were at REBarCamp.....seems like longer than that!

Posted by Ann Allen Hoover, CDPE SRES ASP e-PRO Realtor - Homes for Sale - AL (RE/MAX Advantage South) almost 11 years ago

If you have some time left after you do all the things you do, maybe you can start working on some ENERGY pills.  I'd buy some ... in fact, I may keep you in business with the supplies I'll be needing. :)

I'm looking forward to the owed blogs and eye candy. :)


Posted by Sylvie Conde, Broker, Toronto Real Estate (Sutton Group-Associates Realty Inc., Brokerage) almost 11 years ago

It's been a long time since I was in a recording studio, but it was a lot of fun, so I'm sure you're having a blast.

Posted by JL Boney, III, Columbia, SC Real Estate (Coldwell Banker) almost 11 years ago

I am exhausted. Takes a lot of hours to get it all done. Trying to catch up what I missed. You guys have been busy (LOL).

Gary, will post more work soon. :-)

Liz, I nap and am thinking I need a vacation just so I can sleep (LOL).

Leslie, thank you. I appreciate the kind words and have a lot of fun posting here. :-)

Paddy, I will try. A couple of clients are having serious drama so it's been very interesting...

Ann, I am glad that we got to spend some time together. Looking forward to seeing you again. :-)

Slyvie, I've been trying very hard to get them done. The litle minions have been giving me a run for my money (LOL).

JL, I am having a wonderful time with my friends. It's a lot of fun. :-)

Posted by C Tann-Starr (Tann Starr & Associates, Inc.) almost 11 years ago

Wow C how exciting for you!  I can't wait to hear what you are working on!  Sleep?  Who needs sleep?  LOL

Posted by Debbie Walsh, Hudson Valley NY Real Estate 845.283-3036 (Shahar Management) almost 11 years ago

Thank you, Debra. Sleep... Hmm... I think I actually dream about getting some sleep when I nap (LOL). ;-)
