I have been a slacker as I have not done any blogs on my website so far! So i thought it was time to loose my blogger virginity! hehe! Since I last wrote I have been to Gympie Music Muster which was the most awesome festival ever! I competed in the Maton Talent Search and got the opportunity to play some of my new orginals going on the debut album.
On a personal note, I have been on a weight loss journey and have so far lost 37.5kg since April 2012. I initially started loosing my weight when got the opportunity to record my debut album and I had become fed up of people seeing me as the fat girl before any of my accomplishments. I have psoted a photo below of my before and after shots that I am extremly proud of and I hope it inspires you to follow yours dreams and reach for the stars. Due to the recent relocation to Mackay I have been a little queit on the gig front but that is slowly picking up and i have a few tricks to pull out of my sleeve for 2013! I was very honored to recieve an invitation to Queensland Champion of Champions this month but unfortunalty I could ot attend due to the fact i am broKe hehe!! Oh the joys of being a musician hehe!
I have posted 2 new YouTube videos of me performing my most favourite roiginals from Gympie Muster, so head over and check em out on www.youtube.com/gemmalouisekirby!
Well thats all for now! Be good and stay safe!
