    Jenny of Oldstones – Reliving the Past

    This cover video was challenging to make because it unexpectedly brought back all sorts of fears and insecurities that I’ve worked hard to overcome.

    Cristy, once again, helped me film this. As soon as I started seeing some test shots on the camera’s viewfinder, I felt self-conscious and uncomfortable.

    Don’t ask me why. I hadn’t felt like this in such a long time.

    I will never understand how warped the mind can get in certain circumstances. I was overtaken by the feeling that I was going to do a terrible job and the video was going to suck because of me, and why do I do this? Why am I wasting Cristy’s time? And should I find a different job? Cause I’m definitely horrible at this one. And ugh… why am I still so overweight? Why didn’t I do this…? and that…?

    My brain was so chatty and had many strong, mean-spirited opinions.

    I’ve gone through this enough times in the past to know these extreme feelings are not real. They’re just moments when despair takes over and talks very loudly, like an annoying know-it-all, and doesn’t let me have a say.

    I’m proud I was able to keep working. I did my best to ignore all the fake hatred my mind was spewing. It hurt, but I kept going.

    I’m thankful that I did. The next day, I watched the video… and it was fine. Absolutely nothing like the horrific version I had self-edited in my mind.

    Guess my mind just needed a diva moment of woe is me. Hahaha!

    New Cover: Jenny of Oldstones

    Hi guys!

    I recorded a cover of Jenny of Oldstones, a song featured in Episode 2 of Season 8 of Game of Thrones.

    When I first heard it, I confess I wasn’t sure if I should try recording it or not… but your recommendations convinced me to try! Thank you so much for suggesting it!

    If you’d like to add this song to your collection, you can find it on iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify, Amazon, and Bandcamp

    I can’t believe the show ends in a few hours.

    What will you watch next?

    Big hug,

    8 Years Later: The Dragonborn Comes – Remastered

    Hey guys!

    I posted a new version of The Dragonborn Comes video on March 31, which was the 25th Anniversary of the Elder Scrolls franchise. I’m so happy with how it turned out!

    The original version of this cover, which I posted in November 2011, opened several doors that allowed me to grow as a musician and person. Leading to actually getting to work on some music for The Elder Scrolls Online… Never in my life did I imagine that would happen!

    This new video, shot by 24milímetros, was a fun way to celebrate and pay tribute to the Elder Scrolls universe.

    Hope you like it! Thanks for watching.
    Hugs,
    Malu

    Holiday Cover – Angels We Have Heard on High

    Hey guys!

    I hope you have a wonderful time celebrating the Holiday Season with your friends and family.

    I managed to make one final cover for 2019 of a song I love and that gets stuck in my head for days. haha! 😀

    Again, the video was filmed by the awesome 24mm. I love the warmth Cristina was able to capture. I also love she was willing to work with Thor. Overall, such an incredibly positive experience.

    It was a wonderful way to close out the year!

    The song is available to download/stream on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, Google, Bandcamp, and more.
