Misty Oldland promotion video
This is the transcription of the Misty Oldland promotion
video released for her first album Supernatural. I made several video clips from this
video so if you have the Real Player G2 installed please have a look (the video clips are about
300-400 Kb and can be downloaded and saved). I want to thank Ian B. for sending me the tape.
These are my stories and I'm sharing them in an as honest and groovy
way as possible. Hopefully the overall vibe will be magical.
The London street soul scene I would say that I was part of because the
way that I got my feeling out was through a small independent label and therefore it was an
underground venture initially before Columbia heard it and snapped me up.
I think that the scene now is getting recognition and becoming stronger
and people such as Jamiraquoi crossing over will enable other people to cross over also, and
reach a larger audience hopefully without having to compromise the quality of the sound of
the soul. Cause I write traditional songs I treat them in a traditional way so part are
quite written quite structure and there is a lot of dynamics and a lot of change and a lot
of different colors.
I started writing songs when I was eleven years old and the first song
that I wrote I knew must be quite good because my friends at school used to get me to play it
at the piano and they all get around and sing along. So I've been writing since a very young
Running a club affected the production of this album definitely cause I
was really exposed to a lot of underground soul and hip-hop and jazz and funk. The sound on
the whole was unswamped with unnecessary effect you know more intimate more representational
of how I think it truly is. I basically produced the record with a partner called Joe Dworniak
who used to be in a band called I-Level (?). I would never go for perfection, programmed
perfection over human vibe. I mean to me there is no comparison. It's just a whole different
ball game when your playing to an audience than when you're making music in a studio. In a way
you're burying your soul.
Caroline was written about my sister who got this rare paralyzing virus
but luckily once the virus has run it's course you get better and she is better, thanks
goodness. And so the song really was written for her.
A fair affair is all about equality for women in relationships when we go
into relationships with people we enter a contract that might be non-viable but I think the
basic clauses should be equal rights equal respect equal opportunity. All the musician on the
record are female, including seven background singers who are friends and it's got a vibe.
