MIDEM 2012 – The biggest Music Business Event in the world

So here we go again... was debating with myself whether it would be a wise idea to go to Cannes to attend at the Midem once again!? I did participate back in 2008 and 2009 which turned out to be a great and a very valuable experience. So why would I not attend this year!? With a new album in my hand, already somewhat established in some parts of the world, the timing would most probably never be better!?

So here I am, been sending out various requests since yesterday morning for possible meetings for licensing, with booking agencies’ for live concerts, new collaborations, management etc. to music industry people all around the world. And much to my joy the list of confirmed meetings with people from Germany, UK, US, France, Spain, Netherlands, Sweden, Denmark, Singapore and East Europe keeps growing J Such a great opportunity to get the chance to connect with music people from all over there world no matter the outcome and I feel blessed that I have the chance. Two weeks to go and I´m glad I took the decision to go for it… What to lose!? Looking forward and fingers crossed!

Love Tess

WORDS OF GRATITUDE AND THANK YOU 2011!!

Words of Gratitude!

Dear Friends,

The year is coming to its end and once again I feel so filled with gratitude towards life, my family and all of you! Thank you once again for your endless support and love for us and also for following me on my journey of music. Thinking back especially on our fall in Dubai, I´m just amazed how much we did accomplish in the end, how many wonderful people we met along the way and how much we´ve grown in so many ways. I believe we´ve become stronger just simply by doing all the work needed every day and fighting thru every possible challenge, showing that anything is possible if you just believe in it strong enough. Thank you all for pushing me to my best and for inspiring me to “keep it up”. Don't know how to thank you enough! 

I also feel so extremely grateful for our son Lucas who brightens every day. My angel who inspires me to embrace and live my life to the fullest. The sun through the rain and my light. You own my heart and my gratitude for your existence is endless.

I think having a child, once again makes you realize what is important in life. How important it is to embrace every day, make the most of it and never take anything for granted. To be happy for the small things and live today! Not yesterday and not tomorrow!

LIFE - the fruit of endless devotion and belief!

“You are what you are by what you believe”

I wish you all a MERRY CHRISTMAS and HAPPY 2012!! A year filled with all that you wish for J

All my love to you from a white Stockholm!!

Tess

LEARNING NEW SONGS! :)

 This last seven days I have also been learning 10 new cover songs for mine and Fredrik’s (keyboard) new cover songs catalogue for some of our coming performances in the fall, a song for every occasion and a real nostalgic trip! And again, I just wanted to express how grateful I am to be able to do what I love almost every day… Of course, yes, it’s great to sing your own music and songs but oh, so much you also learn and develop your voice from singing other artists amazing music! I’m also so grateful to have someone like my best friend Fredrik who throws 20-30 new cover songs at me now and then for me to learn… of course I could pick them myself but this way I might find songs that I never thought of, other songs that I say to myself, “oh THIS one, the one I always wanted to sing” or just “this one, is he nuts”!? J But I know that all the songs are always very wisely picket by Mr. Fredrik since he, after playing together for more than 10 years now, knows better than anyone what my voice needs best to develop… And of course it's also very handy to be able to blame "The keyboard player" if the choice of song is not the best!   

So because of all of the above, I've been feeling extremely grateful this week, putting the music up loud to sing my heart out and then when seeing Lucas join in for a dance… the joy has been overwhelming! Thank you thank you… 

Now of to the studio to continue working on my own music… very inspired!   

So Mr. Fredrik… these are the 10 new cover songs down for this week… Check!! J  

 

    1. Whataya want from me – Adam Lambert 
    2. Stay the night – James Blunt 
    3. Strong Enough – Cher 
    4. Grenade – Bruno Mars 
    5. Need you now – Lady Antebellum 
    6. Soldier of Love – Sade 
    7. Just the way you are – Bruno Mars 
    8. Knowing me, knowing you – Abba 
    9. Money, money, money – Abba
      Just dance – Lady Gaga

TALKING TO MOM.. 10 YEARS LATER, HER WORDS AS VALID AS EVER!

Yesterday when I walked home in beautiful Stockholm, strolling with Lucas in the stroller and our two little Chihuahuas, I just felt such an inner happiness that I’m simply around to see the sun, watch all the beautiful people on the streets, sitting at various coffee shops, or just simply on their way somewhere. My mother once said, ”If I could only be around to see what happens, to be able to just have for example one more dinner with you, your father and your brother”! A simple, often taken for granted ”everyday” thing but, so beautiful but yet impossible if you have a time limit to your life…  That’s what she said 10 years ago…

So mom, today walking in the sun, I feel that I’m happy and blessed to just be here and “around”… so beautiful in itself!

That day 10 years ago you also said, “I’m so afraid that you will be disappointed if you don’t succeed with your dream”. And I answered, “If I don’t try, the chance that I will be disappointed is 100 % but if I do, at least I will know that I tried! So mom, I kept trying and today I am living my dream… why!? You see, I make a living, even do I sometimes hardly get around but I DO make a living, doing what I love which is making people happy with my singing and with my songs and music . I sometimes make them want to dance and I reach them with my words. I travel around the world and meet people that often seem to love what I do… mom, last week I was in Dubai performing, and one of the nights I did a performance for my new sponsor, Volkswagen. I was supposed to sing for 45 minutes, entertaining all the possible car buyers, the rich Saudis’, the Omanis’ and other influent people… After my 45 min was up, they told me that, “The clients just cancelled their dinner since they rather spend the evening dancing and listening to you!” So I sang and sang, for 3 hours in a raw and every time I tried to stop they wanted more… mom, I made people happy and kept them dancing… I pulled every song I had in my catalogue, I sang “I will Survive” at least 3 times along with my own music and at the end they were all singing along to my own song “Everything”… Such a wonderful, warm, loving and unforgettable evening… So mom, yes, I did succeed simply because I sometimes can make people happy and by doing that, it makes me very happy too.

That night, ten years ago, you also said, “I don’t want you to miss the other race, being so focused on your music! The race of having a family and racing your own child”… Mom I know, and like your other words, they always stayed with me… but mom, he’s here now!! And of course you know this already!  J Little angel Lucas, the best thing in the world… travelling with me to every corner of this world! I have not spent a day without him yet, simply because I just can’t… He’s already dancing and he’s very un scared of everything. He’s extremely social since he meets people all the time and  he already knows what a sound check is and he already recognized his mom’s singing… J He’s, just like you said, simply the biggest blessing of them all…

So mom, am I happy!? Yes, mostly I feel extremely blessed, happy and very grateful for so many things, but if you ask me today the answer would be no, simply because you’re not here to see that I’m doing good, to share Lucas everyday happenings with you and simply be able to say that “now we’re going to see grandma”! To be able to call you and tell you all the exciting things that is going on, or just discuss my worries about the future, ask for your advice or just share my happiness about Lucas…! The fact that I can’t simply sucks! But I also know that you’re with us somehow and that you’re watching over us always… don’t think Lucas would be here otherwise And luckily I also have papa and my brother there… the family that you once started and which of course I love more than I can write in words!

Mom, miss you more that I can express in any way, today and every day, but with these words I just wanted you to know that I remember all that you said and that I’m doing my best to not waste any of the invaluable days that I’ve been given! I do my best to try and live every day as the last and to do the most of it all and I also try to see all the beautiful small “everyday” blessings that we so often take for granted! The day you left us, ten years ago, I promised myself to go for my dream and make the most of my life, no matter how tuff it seems sometimes, since life is too short and that’s what I’ve been doing ever since even though it’s not always easy like for all of us! But at least I try… like I promised you!

My song to you from 2005:

THE NIGHT HAS COME
(T.Neaime / F.Stromberg)

V1
If I could have another moment with you
If I could only bring you back when morning comes
If I could hold your hand one more time and let you know
How I fall without you, I am drowning in deep water

And I wish I would have told you how you made me who I am

Without your wisdom it will never be the same, since 

 

CHORUS
The night has come
And left us in the darkest cold
The night has come
With memories of you that never fade
Everything is different, since
The night has come
And your endless journey has begun

V2
Even in your deepest fear you gave me strength

Like a flower knows the rain you fought thru pain

You fell like a leaf without a choice

But I still wonder why, you had to leave in the middle of your life

 

And I am sorry for the words we never said

And I regret, I was to scared to say goodbye, and now 

 

CHORUS

BRIDGE

The moon will rise the sun will set

The moon will rise the sun will set

Still, I promise you that I will live and I won’t forget 

 

Love you with all my heart!

Your daughter!

Tessan

"LOVERS LULLABY, ANOTHER MILESTONE!

Dear friends,
my new single is now officially released and we've come a long way!
“Lovers Lullaby”, another milestone, is now out and my second album is also close to finished and waiting to be released shortly. Exciting times and I feel grateful... so grateful mostly for the never ending passion we have for what we do, even dough it very often proves to not be easy at all, for the never ending desire we feel to prove that it’s actually possible and for all the wonderful people close to me that make it happen. So many walls to climb, so many bridges to cross and so many rounds to win with every little step, so often so much easier to give up... but still, with 100 % determination, yes, I've learned that with less than that, it's just not possible... we try to make it happen... with tiny steps, we climb the ladder to our goals, we make it possibility to live out our dream, we continue to reach people with our hearts and passion traveling the world doing what we love to do but most of all, we try our best to continue on the path we started, the path of music, sharing our journey together with as all the wonderful people we meet along the way!! For the ones closest to me, I cannot explain in words how I feel for you… thank you for believing and staying with me!!
Thank you all again for your love and support and I hope you like the new website and enjoy our new song... "Lovers Lullaby"... the Lullaby for you all tonight, tomorrow and the day after!!
Love you
Tess

    My dear Tessan, it feels like yesterday when you participated and read poem at my wedding! I am so proud over you and feel that I am blessed to have had you in my life! Wish you all the luck for the Future too. Love Maria

photo shoot for HELLO MAGAZINE!

Dear friends...
so great what happened the other day: we were performing at Jebel Ali and in the middle of a song I turned my head to the TV screen and guess what I saw: my very own music video playing on MTV !!! What a moment and what a great feeling ! All the guests came and gathered around the TV-screen and were as excited as we were ! What a wonderful moment when you realise that your video has truly made it and is playing on MTV !
Some days I feel the heavy load of all the work and the mountain of success just feels too steep to climb ! Then my dream suddenly feels a little more distant and I wonder whether I will make it at all to the next step. In those moments it is great to have friends by your side who remind you of all the success stories and great things that happened these last months ! ...and then you see your own music video on MTV and the smile comes back to your face :-)
 
On of those great moments was when I did an interview and a photo shoot some days ago for HELLO MAGAZINE over here in Dubai.  I just want to share some of the photos with you... and since the "Hello" people also loved little Lucas, this turned into his first Photo shoot for this glamorous magazine, which of course ...made him the star of the day... Stay tuned for the mid December edition of the HELLO MAGAZINE.

MACDONALD'S INSTORE-TV AND THE ROLLING STONE MAGAZINE!

Dear frinds...

Sorry for not writing earlier but it's just been such crazy two weeks since my performance at the What's On Awards and our live performance at the MBC which went overwhelmingly great! Could not have wished for more! These great opportunities to be the only featured artist, doing three of my new songs in front of more than 1000 VIP guests and also the opportunity to sing live at the biggest TV station over here, the MBC 1 TV morning show, turned out to be simply invaluable in every way.

Again, the What's On Awards turned out to be another true "Cinderella moment" and at the MBC show, they actually had us do almost four full lengths songs which was far more than we expected from the beginning... said that they loved it

Since then I have been doing several interviews for various magazines and just the other day we also received more great news about my latest music video to my single,  "All I Think About Is You” which started airing last week at MCDONALD’S INSTORE-TV (“Ich liebe es TV”) all over Germany. The music video will air daily in almost 800 restaurants and reach an audience of approx. 1,150,000 viewers.

This week “All I Think About Is You” also received an excellent 3-star rating in the November edition of ROLLING STONE MIDDLE EAST MAGAZINE. Described as “definite R&B vibe” with “powerful yet subtle vocals” and an “infectiously catchy chorus”, the song is bound to make “perfect radio fodder”. So of course I'm very happy and pleased and could not wish for more!

Other than that, I've been visiting Camels in the desert, performing six days a week and planning for great and exiting things to come... will keep you posted!

Also, two of the songs we performed at the MBC 1 TV morning show can now be viewed on YOUTUBE:

The show aired on November 7 on MBC, the number one TV satellite station in the Middle East.

All my love

Tess
