TWO NEW SINGLES, AND A COUNTDOWN TO A NEW BEGINNING….!

HELLO EVERYBODY!!!

So, where have I been? you ask.

Weeeell, whilst I’ve been away from here for a while, I’ve been super busy with my health, recovery aaaaand….wait for it…. working on a NEW ALBUM and one that I am completely PROUD OF!!! With that said, I have recently released 2 new singles since Saturday 20th April called “Cathartic” and the other “Father of Lights” featuring my friend and producer Pete Barnardo (you can follow him on Insta or find his page with the same name and like it). You can find these songs on all digital outlets as well as YouTube under ‘KuriA’ or ‘Kadeciablessed’.

It has been one heck of a journey and there was a time I never thought I’d be able to really get back on my music properly even though I was still writing songs/music and other material. It has been an experience to have to relive some of my pain and joys and frustrations, as well as a steep learning curve for me. I learned more than anything about working with a team and also making creative decisions sometimes that others didn’t always agree with. I had to learn to trust my instincts and trust God as well as my close friend and family’s support throughout the making process.

I learned about the struggle of sometimes doing things too quickly or too slow and the effect it had on time and planning with regards to release dates. I learned more about who was really for me and who wasn’t also, I also learned more about the importance of when to speak and when to be silent. A lesson that I am still learning I might add.

Through it all, I am very excited about this new venture and this new stage of my journey with music as now I have an even deeper back story that for me makes my music that much more worthwhile. 

So, with that being said, I am pleased and excited to announce that my album “INTO ME SEE” by KuriA, will be released on the: 

20th May 2019!

Signed CD copies will be available at £15 + Postage and Packaging. There is also a T-Shirt to commemorate the release of this album available also for £10 + postage and packaging! However, as part of my celebration in releasing this album, if you get the CD with the T-shirt at £25 you’ll get POSTAGE AND PACKAGING FREE! Yes! That’s right! FREE! (Comment below for more details and I’ll send you the PayPal link)

The album will also be available on all digital outlets and streaming sites everywhere also. But there’s nothing like having keepsake memorabilia! So, in addition to downloads, getting you a signed copy will be EPIC and worth it! Therefore, in the meantime, please let me know what you are up to and how you like the two songs released so far ahead of the new album. Below, I decided to let you get straight to it with the two youtube audios of the new singles! eeeekkkk!! Yup! I couldn’t wait! It’s worth downloading!

Keeping it real as always!

Peace xx

It’s good to reblog from time to time. This time I’m reblogging a poem I wrote a few years ago for Easter. It was a Good Friday because the events that happened that day changed the course of history forever and ricochets of the effects of the events echo endlessly into eternity. So be blessed by this poem. 😘😘

I AM ENOUGH

 

It’s about time I blogged again. Pure prose. No pictures. Just talk.

I have been fighting the urge to write for over a year now. It’s been a long time since I’ve been able to properly document my ideas and thoughts. I thought whatever I write it won’t be enough.

There is always a critic waiting to criticise you and your performance without prior knowledge of your growth and process or of the way you think. There will always be the one person who will encourage you too but you freeze under the weight of self-unbelief. There is an inner mockery of voices tormenting your mind and the external pen poisoned messages eat through the pores of an aching soul. There is always the unspoken silent screams and the constructive voices that help you navigate your growth. And, the perpetual sounds of all these voices are directing your growth that the inner voice keeps silent or speaks that you can’t even hear.

Well, today, I am tired. I am tired of these thoughts and voices. I am tired of feeling like I’m not enough even though the truth is I AM. I am ENOUGH. I’m tired of feeling like I have to do something to receive love. Or feeling that I’m only loved because I’m down or because I’ve done something good for someone so now they feel they ought to Love me yet view me as a burden overtime. Or loved out of obligation because “God says we should Love”.  

Yet when they love, they withdraw it over time. I hate the withdrawal. Especially of love. Excuses like “I’m busy” or “sorry I just can’t” (Even though I’m most understanding of the circumstances). When the heart of another begins to withdraw and invest elsewhere leaving you wanting, wanting, wanting…

The Longing of Love. The validation of Love. The needing of Love. Now I start to look needy. Not a good look ey? Not enough. “Oh no you’re not a burden!” They say. Hmmm. Well we’ll see. I feel like a burden. I’m having to change my speech. Change me to be received and loved as enough. You withhold the secrets of your heart that you once shared regularly with me. We shift. We change. You withdraw. Withdraw. Withdraw. You lie “I’m just busy!” You wait for me to ask, ask, ask. And in my asking, though I receive, it’s done out of a sense of obligation. I wear your ear out. Yes, I talk too much. That’s me. Yes I chat nonsense. That’s me. I’m border-lining heresy. Yet I walk in the Truth. That’s me. My thoughts have gone crazy wild. That’s me.

That’s Wilderness me. That’s not inner me. I am Love. I am Light. I am Goodness. In the right environment I thrive but this is part of building ‘me’. The wilderness me is my building site me. It’s my quarry. It’s the war. It’s the dessert. If you can’t hack it out til the end, fall by the way side with the doubters and shakers. Leave the wilderness. I am not alone. Never Alone. Abba is with me. Always has been and always will be.

When He sees me, I am enough to him. I’ve always been enough. And from being enough, to making me more enough. Turning my enough to more than enough. Because He loves me as I am and bringing out who I am. I AM ENOUGH. There are others like me. I’m not alone in my wilderness or journey. They too, are enough. Enough. Enough. I accept. Please accept. We are ENOUGH.

As ever Keeping it Real, Peace!
