WishMaiden - The girl behind the keyboard.

in introduceyourself •  5 months ago 

Not sure if I've formally introduced myself by my real name to many of my followers on #steemit or in the #crypto #community... So since I've been #blogging and #steeming for more than a couple of years, I thought I'd better go ahead and let you get to know me a bit more than the #WishMaiden Alias I use online most of the time.

My name is Ellie, I'm from the Sunshine Coast - #TeamAustralia. I`m very passionate about a lot of things in #life, and find myself often optimistically reaching for the stars and even beyond, because I just know that there's more to all 'THIS' than meets the eye, and I'm always keeping my eyes and ears open for #opportunity to #experience it. To be alive and find #fulfillment can be a bit full on and sometimes overwhelming,but there's so much fun and excitement as well! But generally speaking, to #live really is a bit of an odd kind of thing to learn to get your head around!

I`m a dedicated Crypto Enthusiast, Ambitious Networker and Entrepreneur, Musician, Event Planner, Peace Advocate and #Mother to my two darling children.

I've been #singing since I can remember and playing #guitar for about 6 or 7 years, which has really helped my bring my #creativity together, helping me produce my #love for music into the tunes and music I share so often.

I like all kinds of #music, and enjoy performing pretty much anything I can #sing and play!

The #stage calls me!

I have many Idols, but if I had to think of just one musician that I could say I aspire too, I'd say UMMMM.... How bout 50? Hhaha

The list of my favourites is LONG, but to mention a few bands and soloists that have really impacted on my love of music...

#JanisJoplin, #BetteMidler, #FreddieMercury, #MeatLoaf, #SamSparro, #LedZeppelin, #CatStevens, #JudyGarland, #DeltaGoodrem, #GuySebastian, #Avicii, #BarbraStreisand, #PinkFloyd, #AndrewLloydWebber, #LanaDelRey, #Sia, #StevieWonder....

And...

You could say if i had to really choose one musician that I respect and look up to, well, after some though, I decided to go with #Adele, such elegance and #beauty in her musical vocal #art with a big, strong #voice and a magical presence that is all she needs as she take the stage. All eyes and ears on her as she lights up the #spotlight gracefully #entertaining, no matter how large the crowd, she owns those moments like no other, a true star- born for it.
She is full of soul that inspires me as a musician, to use my voice and be comfortable in myself to practice more and to embrace the dedication,feeling and poise that it takes to perform as a musical #artist. .

This is my favourite song by Adele to sing, "Someone Like You"

LYRICS


I FORGOT TO SAY I LOVE YOU

By Ellie Balkin
(AKA WishMaiden)

I miss you voice
I miss your touch
I forgot to say I love you
And just how much

It's like this
And now it's like that
I'm hoping and wishing
That you'd come back

I never would have
Made those mistakes
I guess sometimes
Hearts have to break

I haven't heard from you
In a while
My knees go weak
When i think of your smile

It's like this
And now it's like that
I'm hoping and wishing
That you'd come back

I never would have
Made those mistakes
I guess sometimes
hearts have to break

We haven't talked
In such a long time
I'm starting to accept
That you're no longer mine
No matter how much time
no matter

As I cry these tears
Falling into my hands
You ' don't know
But I understand

My heart feels broken
It's feeling the pain
My heart feels empty
things wont ever
Be the same

Oh... It' was like this
And now it's like that
I'm hoping and wishing
That you'd come back

I never would have
Made those mistakes
I guess sometimes
Hearts have to break

I guess sometimes
hearts have to break.
