Thomas Fuchs from Fulda, Germany joined me spontaneously on this song and for most of the night. Worry Gets You Nowhere sheds sunshine on the listener reminding ‘you’ that this state of mind is good for nothing, and a dead end street. There is also a hint in the vibe and lyric, of releasing oneself from self-criticism.
A voice like chocolate. Musical diversity. Power. Sunshine. Love & soulfulness. Combine all this with an entertainer, whose blithe spirit has created fantastic songs and 6 albums. Singer-songwriter Melanie Dekker from Vancouver, Canada will move you with her lyrics and world class percussive guitar style. She’s been the support act for Bryan Adams, Russell Peters, & Faith Hill. Her tunes will surely take you on a ride and fire up your heart.
If you enjoyed “Worry Gets you Nowhere”, then Melanie’s friends recommend checking out her song “You’re powerful.” A caring story with a hint of warning and simply a light-hearted tune that brightens anyone’s mood. Reminding you that there’s lots of power within. It follows a similar story-line as “Worry Gets You Nowhere”, in that it jostles playfully for self-empowerment.
He has toured with me in various band mate configurations, but never just ‘the two of us’ 🙂
