41: Chemda's First Time

Itís all fun and games until Chemdaís in the hot seat. Itís the greatest singing voice Keith has ever heard, and Keith wants to know how it formed, how Chemda discovered it, and the places it took her. From famed producers and albums to worldwide tours, Chemda shares with us the highs of her musical career as well as the lows of creeps and how singing affected her life and family.

Check Minute 2:52

It looks terrible, I hope Mr Apia was forced with violence to this show. But itís this song.
YUP! That's the one!

This episode is a treat - perhaps especially for those of us who have been around since the early days when Chemda's singing was more prominent on the show.

PS: Magic Carpet Ride has been on So You Think You Can Dance!

Best My Opening Line ever did.

This might be a dumb question Chemda and is probably at least verging on mansplaining or something but when you were talking about how it's such a to-do to deal with the business side of releasing an album (negotiating pricing and all that malarkey) that you feel like tearing up when you think about it, it seems much easier to get art to the masses now than it ever was when you were singing professionally before. Tons of legit bands and artists use Bandcamp for example, which allows musicians to do that Radiohead thing of asking fans to just pay what they feel it's worth. Spotify seems pretty easy to sign up for as a release platform too.

Thatís basically what I was talking about at the end. I want to slowly write songs and put them on an album and make it available.

This will take years

Hi
1) When I do Karaoke it's ballads, hairbands and musicals for the first hour, then I put in kooky funny songs - after maybe some Linking Park. I'll sing along to the other nonsense Bon jovi that everyone else puts on but i gotta get my emotions out with some real shit first. I don't think I'm a karaoke snob - but people who act like they need to get drunk first before they have fun can gtfo.

(My point being, sing what the hell you want!)

2)Let's kickstart an album for Chemda!
