George R.R. Martin Approved!

So as a lot of you may have read on my facebook page, George has indeed watched a few of my “Game of Thrones” songs on You Tube after a very kind person linked him my work on his blog. His comment was probably the most rewarding thing I have ever read, I didn’t stop smiling for days :

“Wow. I get sent links to a lot of YouTube tribute videos. Some of them are funny, some are cool, some are… well-intentioned.
But this one was amazing. Beautiful stuff.
And following the links, I see she has other songs as well. Really liked her “Dornishman’s Wife” as well.”

So there you have it, and I still haven’t stopped smiling.

    Your music is very powerful stuff. I’m glad that I’m not the only author who thinks this – and I’m especially happy the writer who inspired a lot of your music appreciates your talent as well. You should be ecstatic, and especially proud!

    Thank you so much, I am incredibly overwhelmed with his response. It’s something I never dreamed would happen. 🙂

    SO glad he watched them! I linked a couple of your vids on his LJ blog and hoped he’d watch them then check out the rest (I told him in the post that you had several and all were worth watching). Now to have HBO and/or the production team get one of your styling’s on the program itself and all will be as it should be. You have immense talent and it should be showcased.
    Best of luck.

    Thanks so much Kathleen, i’m still reeling with joy that he actually got to see my work. So many people have been linking my videos to him and finally, he saw! Thank you for taking the time to do that for me, it’s means to much to me to be able to talk to my hero. I’d kill for one of my songs on the show, it’s still a big dream but it’s something i’m so determined to make happen.

    You deserved the praise! I have never heard anyone bring to life a book I so love in song!! Everytime I listen to You win or You Die or any of the other Game of Thrones songs, it feels like you were pulling my thoughts and emotions out to create your music. Truly beautiful songs that bring Game of Thrones alive. I agree with Kathleen, your songs should be a part of the show!!!

    Thank you so much for such a lovely compliment. These books are an obsession for me and if I’m being honest, I can’t think of one ‘Westeros” song that I’ve composed that hasn’t flowed through me like water. When i’m deeply passionate about something, the music writes itself. Thank you so much for coming to listen to me. xx

    Oh my god! I’m so happy for you! I just discovered your site (and your YouTube channel as well) and I can’t stop listening to your songs. They are incredible and incredibly beautiful, just as your voice.
    You do deserve the praise, sweet lady. Keep up the good work!

    Love from Germany

    I hope they use one of your interpretations in the show one day that would be great.

    You deserve, girl! I just love the songs you make about ASOIAF! It was about time GRRM to listen to them. I really wished they asked you to perform in the series, it would be awesome. Anyway, there must be nothing better than having George saying that. Greettings from Brazil!
