Welcome to the JSP music Vault!
Hello and welcome to what I love to term as my secret treasure trove. For those that don't know me, music has been one of my lesser known passions. It began when I started playing the piano at the age of 5 or 6, which then grew when got my first CD from my mum (which was Mariah Carey's Music Box - a compilation I still love to this day). It then manifolded to another level when I would obsessively listen to the radio in all my spare in between moments during my teens and scribbling pieces of my own poetry and lyrics. However it wasn't until I hit my 20s and officially discovered I loved singing and began learning under some really talented vocal instructors that this passion grew into a deep maturity. In fact, I think if I didn't get so distracted during my late high school and university years chasing after golden grades, I may have become a singer song writer, penning down music on paper, guitar in hand, and an honest voice to portray those stories into lyrical life. Maybe. Who knows? :)
Nowadays, I am happy behind the camera, capturing other people's journeys in a frame and telling their stories in a photo, and am thoroughly content feeding this constant fascination of mine by discovering those lesser known artists who are still as good if not better than anything we hear in mainstream these days (there is just something delightful in enjoying something you know no one else knowns about!), excessively shopping on iTunes, and watching those that do it well.... Who do it very very well :)
So this little corner of my blog is dedicated to those little snippets of discoveries I stumble upon now and then that just saturate my ears, give me goosebumps, make me happy, and move me all at the same time. I hope they brighten up your day as much as they have mine. And I hope there is something here for everyone no matter how you are feeling at this stage in your life.... The in-love, the broken hearted, the happy, the sad, the angry, the blessed, the lost, the married, the engaged, those still looking, and for all the rest who simply just share this passion of mine with me.
Enjoy :) I promise only good good stuff here :)
