Seeking a band! Have always been a singer whether solo, with family or in choirs and bands. Had vocal training, both classical and natural voice, until around 18 years old. I've been playing acoustic guitar since I was young, but on-and-off and usually only for myself or the occasional open mic - just want to sing!

We Loves The Travels (Original Track)
We Loves The Travels (Original Track)Kidnapped my sister's Mac for the day so got to play with the loops in Garageband - SO MUCH FUN. Got carried away making a belly dancing track, have been grooving to it most of today despite the heat. Managed to use almost every worldly instrument of asian and middle-eastern influence to make a very non-traditional funky folkloric belly dance bounce.
The Room (Original Song)
The Room (Original Song)Oh gods it's so bad but was so much fun - made the music in Music Maker Jam on my laptop, then used Studio One 3 to record random improv' vocals. Got to play with more effect things too. My awful attempt at pop music, totally doing another sometime.
The Spider (Original Song)
The Spider (Original Song)Second song of the day, and while I seem to have accidentally solved the clipping issue I still have loads to get used to... May be dragging sister in to teach me soon... Anywhere here's some random ambient stuff that fell out of my head (recorded improv, hence nonesense lyrics). More shiny loops from the software - plus bird noises. Because Bird noises.
Painful Meditation (Original Song)
Painful Meditation (Original Song)Still getting used to shiny new equipment - well okay, it's the software that's melting my brain - but here's a random improv vocal track using the shiny loops in Studio One 3. Maybe if I keep doing random things like this I'll eventually learn how to use all this stuff...
Vocal cover of Marcela Bovio - Powerless
Vocal cover of Marcela Bovio - PowerlessSo bad due to pure frustration of trying to learn new software and hardware (StudioOne 3 and audiobox iTwo) - but I WILL GET BETTER AT THIS EVEN IF IT KILLS ME. So this was just a practice on the first time I've gotten it to work, so I can measure for future reference. I love this song and it's been stuck in my head all day, so despite the hiccups where the cat landed on me, then I dropped something, I wasn't retaking it lol...
Whisper In The Night (ELO cover)
Whisper In The Night (ELO cover)Cover of ELO's lovely tracks, one of my dad's favourites so we made it as a present.
Stay (Shakespeare Sister cover)
Stay (Shakespeare Sister cover)Me and mon sibling recorded this as part of a present for our dad, this is a classic - so apologies for raping it, but it was too much fun to do! All instrumentals by Kayleigh Morgan and virtual GB drummer, dual vocals with both Kayleigh and myself.
Birds (Anouk Cover) Band Version
Birds (Anouk Cover) Band VersionA full music version of one of my favourite covers, originally sung by Anouk as The Netherlands entry in the Eurovision from a few years ago. All done with my sister Kayleigh's instrumental expertise and magic Garage Band drumming buttons.
Volkiheir.m4a - Original track, written/recorded by Rebekah and K Morgan
Volkiheir.m4a - Original track, written/recorded by Rebekah and K Morgan This was FUN! I might have also played too much Skyrim recently as all I could think when improvising the lyrics was the vampires from the amazing DLC... Can I also just say thanks to my amazing sister who can do fabulous things with Garageband as well as real instruments? Odd thing to say but if anyone fancies buying this track, it's available on my Bandcamp page here - https://rebekahnevaine.bandcamp.com/track/volkiheir
Stalker - Demo (Original track written/recorded by Rebekah and Kayleigh Morgan)
Stalker - Demo (Original track written/recorded by Rebekah and Kayleigh Morgan)I might need therapy... Another example of random songwriting with my sister's help - all instrumentation done by her and the magic of Garageband - the lyrics I have a terrible tendency of improvising. Occasionally said sibling has enough sense to stop me and say "seriously?!", and steers me differently. Bless her ;) Weird I know, but if some fruitcake out there fancies buying this track and encouraging a crazy artist then it's available on my Bandcamp page here - https://rebekahnevaine.bandcamp.com/track/stalker
Sunny Side Up (Cover)
Sunny Side Up (Cover)A cover I've been playing acoustically for a while, originally by one of my all-time favorite singers Anneke Van Giersbergen (formally The Gathering). Lucky for you I got my wonderful sister to play the instrumentation on this, so your ears should only bleed from my singing. We had real fun experimenting with the sound and adding some extra bits, because why the hell not.
Lulzabob (Working title, I swear we're not calling it this!)
Lulzabob (Working title, I swear we're not calling it this!)Um... This is what happens when my sister lets me loose with songwriting. It's my first attempt, and almost entirely written on the spot. Kayleigh did all the instrumentation (with lots of comments and interference from me)and helped with the lyrics, as apparently some of the ones I was spouting off were 'too much crazy'. Don't judge too harshly people... It was waaaay too much fun writing this song. I love this song, if you kinda like it and wanna own it to play pop over to my Bandcamp page here - https://rebekahnevaine.bandcamp.com/track/lulzabob
Sacrament (Written and Recorded by Kayleigh and Rebecca Morgan)
Sacrament (Written and Recorded by Kayleigh and Rebecca Morgan)Totally random, terrible and so much fun - my sister and I wrote and recorded this song one day to test the new equipment and upgraded Garage Band on her Mac. My sister's vocal kicks it off and my untrained vocal joins in, I personally think her chorus is a work of small genius as I can't get it out of my head! We had waaaaaay too much fun... Fancy supporting struggling musicians? Head over to my Bandcamp and buy this track! https://rebekahnevaine.bandcamp.com/track/sacrament
Nights In White Satin (Improv, Acoustic Cover)
Nights In White Satin (Improv, Acoustic Cover)I moved back to the UK so can borrow my sister's guitar now - but I've been working pretty much flat out for months (in my double life as a pyro-artist)... So this was a two minute improv on one of my favorite songs that I do absolutely appallingly, but as I haven't even had the chance to pick up the guitar in weeeeeeks I HAD to do SOMETHING. (Two track, garage band app - I still don't have a mic so using iPad)
Don't Forget Me (Red Hot Chilli Peppers, vocal cover)
Don't Forget Me (Red Hot Chilli Peppers, vocal cover)Well I promised I'd attempt to sing with a metronome to help with timing... Not a great result, largely un-helped by my massive and frequent arguments with the Garage Band app on the iPad. Timing was better (not saying much lol) but tuning went off, I'm sure I switched keys somewhere. This is just the initial vocal track, will continue to argue and fight with the app to add layers of vocals - and discover how to remove the metronome sound...
Spark (Stream of Passion, vocal cover attempt with GarageBand app)
Spark (Stream of Passion, vocal cover attempt with GarageBand app)Me and technology don't exactly get on great, so this is a one take, two track, bash on GB app. As you can tell I have the rhythm of a white person and really need to learn to sing with a metronome - it's like I'm chasing myself trying to keep in time lol. I've not tried harmonizing with myself before so this was a pretty 'unique' experience, more practice required I feel. And yes, that is a chicken you can hear in the background about half way through. Welcome to the sounds of the Caribbean folks!
Minor Dance (Autumn, vocal cover - weird experiment gone wrong)
Minor Dance (Autumn, vocal cover - weird experiment gone wrong)First time I've tried using Garange Band app on the ipad to record vocals... It didn't work out too well, but then I'm not fabulous with tech. I love the original song, definitely didn't come close to doing it justice here but always good to keep practicing even if it does make your ears bleed!
I'll Keep On Dreaming (Stream Of Passion, Vocal Cover - apologies for many mistakes!)
I'll Keep On Dreaming (Stream Of Passion, Vocal Cover - apologies for many mistakes!)Ouch, brave or stupid? Maybe both. An attempt at one of my favorite songs by one of my favorite bands, I usually play this on guitar (in private, where no one can hear me!) but as I am without one for the present I figured I'd attempt this. Still using the SCloud app on the ipad (in built mic)
Heaven's A Lie (Lacuna Coil, Vocal Cover)
Heaven's A Lie (Lacuna Coil, Vocal Cover)A Capella vocal version with just the lyrics in front of me, practicing recording using the 'rec' button on the SCloud app
Birds (Anouk, Vocal Cover) at Grand Cayman Island
Birds (Anouk, Vocal Cover) at Grand Cayman IslandFirst ever attempt at self recording (not including the weird youtube vids I did filming my elbow) just doing it a Capella off the top of my head using the 'rec' button on the SCloud app
