Worry Gets You Nowhere
The song sheds sunshine on the listener and encourage a release 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.
Melanie’s editor recommends checking out her song “You’re powerful”. It follows the same story line as Worry Gets You Nowhere, and it pushes for self-empowerment.
If you want something slower and further passionate then you can check out “Distant Star” – it gives a sense of longing and tugs at the heart. You can find these songs and more online on her website.
The Tale Behind the Video
I used my own Sony Handy-cam to record the video. There was no time for hair or make up in any of these locations. All were spontaneous and started with OMG that’s a cool spot, followed by jumping out of the tour van (a snowy day off the autobahn in and an autumn forest in central Germany, WWII ruins in Cunnersdorf-Germany, the bike-park desert of Kamloops BC, the boat scene in Vancouver’s English bay, the Western Canadian railway in North Vancouver at sunset) & handing my camera to a willing long arm.
Sven Rowoldt, Len Rooney and Ron Putzi held the camera. I could lip sync while the camera is rolling because my little iPod was hidden in my bra.
You can no longer see the homes and brick buildings near Cunnersdorf-Dresden, and taped blocked off the washed up boat in English Bay.
