Who’s Taking Care of My Broken Heart

 

Listen to Who’s Taking Care of My Broken Heart by Sonni Quick #np on #SoundCloud

I posted this to soundcloud.com/sonni-quick three weeks ago and it quickly became one of my most frequently played recordings. Not in the scope of someone backed by a major producer, but I’ve been pleased with the results so far by those who follow my music and share it. SoundCloud is a great site to hear good non-industry music, develop playlists or play one already compiled, 

At this stage of my life, ober the past couple years I’ve had about 20k hits combined on all of the music I have on the internet and thats a heck of a lot more than those who saw me play live when I was younger – and those people could never hear the music again.

The internet has been a great boom to musicians getting their music heard – but there is extremely little money in it. Why buy what you can stream?

I’m banking on my combined following of music and those generated by Jamie’s blog and social media. It will give my book (when it’s done) the possibility of greater success. I posted a new partial chapter today on Jamie blog. SUBSCRIBE at that blog to read complete chapters.

I welcome your feedback. Reader’s opinions and criticism is my only way right now to find out what is wrong – or right. Do you want to be a reader,  let me know. If you do  I’ll send you a free t-shirt, (that you can also purchase on the first post at the blog) a free copy of the book when it comes out, and your name in the book for those who helped – and a few album dl of all the music, which would come with a purchase of the book.

Let me know if you’re interested and I’ll give you more details.

Am I Too Broken To Mend – Poetry and Music

cd-cover-2978944_640

 

Fractures from falling
Invisible pain
Counting the minutes
Like drops in the rain
It runs down my body
Soothing my skin
Gathers the heartbeats
Holding them in

Imagine forever
Time without rest
The passing of memories
My hand on my breast
Feeling my heartbeat
Wanting to end
I’m broken in pieces
Too many to mend?

You get back what you give
No more, nothing less
Trace the wound with your finger
A tiny caress
Time doesn’t linger
Waiting to heal
The pieces of you
That forgot how to heal

 

This is the music and poetry for the latest chapter in my book, “Inside The Forbidden Outside”, an awesome and huge project, which those of you who have followed me already know. Those of you who don’t . . .

I’m in the second draft, although some chapters have been through more than that as I have learned more about the art of writing. Writing blog posts is a completely different ballgame. The first draft was more like a book of blog posts than a creative nonfiction story about a man inn prison as he comes to terms with his life and how he got there. You can read a few chapters from the book at my other blog: My Name is Jamie

You can hear all of the music and music videos completed so far at my website sonniquick.net. Join my mailing list at the top of that page to hear about new music.

This book has a piano soundtrack with song titles that match chapter titles. There are also music videos and poetry. Consequently it has taken 3 years to get this far. This post has the music and poetry. The chapter is half completed and the video hasn’t been stated. When I recorded this piece of improv – all of my music is improv – what came out took the breath out of me. I start with an emotion. The music just comes out in response to that emotion.
