The First Time I Recorded A Music Video

(photo credit: Cyclops Girl) It’s inevitable when you are a recording musician that at some point you are going to need to create a music video. I’m Rändi Fay, a songwriter and recording artist, and not long ago, I didn’t relish this idea AT ALL! I have a good share of camera phobia (not helpful…), and an even healthier phobia of appearing completely ridiculous. I have no background in acting, and I can barely watch myself walk in front of a mirror, let alone attempt to intentionally create a facial…

Music Cities: Grand Rapids, Michigan

Michigan is no stranger to music. Hitsville USA a.k.a. Motown was founded in Detroit.

Its iconic cobblestone streets, many craft beers, and unbelievably delicious local food have drawn young hipsters and elder retirees alike from around the country to come and see just what makes life so good up here. And all of us Mainahs absolutely love it. Last weekend, the 41st…
