New Music Mondays Series

hey ya’ll, I know it’s been a minute since I’ve continued my #NewMusicMondays Series.. so I thought I’d post one. For some reason, “a lot” by 21 Savage ft. J.Cole been stuck in my head so I thought I’d write over it. I got caught up (and also inspired in the bar the night of my last performance), when I was surrounded by so many talented musicians that night. Was feeling’ blessed so I thought I put it in lyrics.

Check it out on my youtube channel:

♫  how we gonna fight
boy you always on my mind 
I ain’t tryna waste time
know, I’ll find another guy 
he… mad cold, super fly 
classic wearing ass, got a suite & tie
my type, might be his wife
give him a child, and my life

ya, right, hopped in my whip
bout to catch a lick 
gotcha starin’ at my lips
baby boy, this ain’t a trip 

ya, all about the grind
gonna take it back in time
when I was living’ off a dime, ya
but now this time is mine

wake up every morning with 
my demons called anxiety
living’ up inside of me
a beautiful catastrophe 

ain’t nobody stopping me
don’t give a fuck with watching my
we make it to the top
make any flop, a bop

when you living’ for the vision
you always on a mission
dreamin, hopin, prayin, wishin, 
that people quit “existin”

people ain’t really big as they say
always same shit, different day
we all just tryna find a way
to get an invite… touche?

all in the name of love 
heavenly gracing from above 
feel it runnin in my blood
chantin’ enough is enough ♫

much love,

2/20/20 The People’s Party: Elevation & Bar Lounge

IMG_4799.jpg

Wow, this year has been a great start for me thus far. Beyond my wildest dreams, I have performed twice at a local bar in Los Angeles in the past month that has only encourage and inspired my love and creativity for music. The People’s Party hosts shows in the area to showcase local talents and artists, bringing the community together for a great time and great music. If you were to tell me a year ago, this was gonna happen I wouldn’t have believed you. I feel so blessed to have been invited to both events and to simply have the opportunity to share my love for music with others. It has only fueled me to become the best version of myself that I can be as artist/ performer/ singer as I know there is much more of me to share.. It is the dream I owe to myself as a little young, now that I feel empowered to have trained and gotten my voice back. (A story I hope to share when I am ready).

Anyhow, though this is only the beginning I am working on some music and am getting my mind and spirit right for what is to come. Super stoked for the music I am writing and creating with some great people.. after all is said and done.. God is good.

Be on a look out for my upcoming EP, that will be releasing very soon within the next months. https://lorrainebautista.com

Til next time,

Update: Teaching at New School

New year, new plans. As I always say, being a part of Music Moves In Me has been a blessing thus far. This year I have the chance to be teaching additional classes– this time with toddlers age 2-3. Since it is a younger class, it will take some adjustments before I feel solid and ready to teach. But nonetheless am so thankful that I am in a position to share the gift of music to younger generations. Though the job itself is not much pay, the influence I have for the children to discover their own love for rhythm and sound is priceless. People wonder why I have such commitment to a job that is not financially rewarding, but I don’t do it for the money. It’s about the music, community, and children and that’s all I need to know that what I am doing is worthwhile. Super excited to have ya’ll with me in this journey, will definitely be keeping you posted as more exciting stuff arise.

2019 Christmas Benefit Concert Photos

The 2019 Christmas Benefit Concert was quite a way to end the last year of the decade. While it happened two months ago, it feels as though it was only yesterday when I was invited by the concert host, Rory Seldon, to participate. To say the least, the concert was festive with the help of amazing musicians/ singers/ talents to spread the holidays cheers, lights to put us in the holiday spirit, and lastly, delicious food to bring us together at the dinner table.

As I have mentioned before, I feel so incredibly blessed to have participated in such an important event with people who share the love of the holidays and of course, music. The concert included performances of both the band Rory Seldon with InnerSession and Aretha Franklin’s manager of 25 years, H.B. Barnum’s LIFE Choir. I feel blessed to be in the presence of such phenomenal talent, it amazes me how great music can bring together a room full of strangers. While I only consider myself a rookie next to such professional acts, I only feel inspired to improve and grow as a vocalist myself. For me the concert, was the catalyst I needed to believe in myself, have faith, and go for my dreams— a leap of faith, I should say.

At the end of the concert, I had the chance of meeting Motown Singer Brenda Holloway, who also participated at the event and sounded so lovely. I had such an amazing time that the concert will remain an unforgettable memory of mine that I am so incredibly proud of and blessed for in the pursuits of my passion for music. I thought I’d share with you all pictures of the 2019 Christmas Benefit Concert that I will cherish for a long time, thank you again for sticking with me.

2.9.20 Local Bar Performance

0

Had the opportunity to sing my heart out a bar in Los Angeles. I performed “Whipped Cream” by Ari Lennox, one of my favorites at the moment. The club was filled with good vibes and so many talented artists that night. Though I waited nearly three hours to finally perform with a little alcohol in my system and almost no water.. I did the best I can vocally in spite of all the nervous. I know this is only the beginning for me and can’t wait for what else God has in store for me. So cliche, but if you truly put your mind to something you’re passionate about.. God will make miracles for you. Feel free to check out a clip of my performance here and my singing instagram here.

Much Love,

x Lo
