Nelda on Finding Home and Musical Inspiration: An Exclusive Interview

Finally, dear friends, fans of musical notes, I just have to share with you this fabulous song I have found recently. There is a song on it that is unbelievable; it is called “Home Is Where I Go” sung by this wonderful lady named Nelda.

This rock/pop/jazz experience combines original lyrics penned with Australian poet Etoile Marley, and is a hymn to the freedom and ability to live happily in any place in the world. Not to even mention the beauty and simplicity of the lyrics, accompanied by Nelda’s soft voice and jazzy piano tunes that give the listener this relaxed feeling of simply just floating away.

Apart from the rhythm to dance to, the lyrics also have an underlying message that makes you contemplate. It is like if you could decide for someone about his life and what better soundtrack for anyone who feels like being a wanderer in this world. I was fortunate to have an interview with Nelda about her song writing, her inspirations and what she tries to portray through her songs.

Well, soon she discovered that she had a very musical family at home, or maybe even more music-oriented family, and she loved the band Queen. I always like when I can listen about her transition from the classical piano to these three pop jazz masterpieces that have that emotional appeal. Nelda also teased me a little bit of her soon-to-be-released concept album whose theme aims deeper in the displacement and belonging.

Naturally one could tell it is going to get the touch of something special. Whether you are a veteran listener of Nelda’s music or you are an early acquaintances, you are going to want to listen to Home Is where I Go and join us on this interview.

If you haven’t heard of Nelda, you best be getting acquainted with her artistry and heartfelt music, and I’m looking forward to the next project she releases.
