more Hype

some say there is a touch of madness
LAUREL CASEY has done THIS and THAT all over the world in a BIG way with LOTS of FAMOUS people. You haven’t heard that much about her because, until now, she has sabotaged her many successes due to a childhood trauma that resulted in a Self-Esteem issue. Despite that challenge she has become an UNKNOWN legend with a million to one chance of making it so BIG that you might ten fold your investment within 20 years. THE QUESTION IS:  What IMPRESSES you? Are you celebrity obsessed, boob crazy, an insipid sycophant clinging to the vine of conformity OR are you courageous enough to follow your own vision? If you knew that Laurel has dated with BIG NAME got a standing ovation at BIG NAME, is a member of BIG NAME, published stories in BIG NAME and won a BIG NAME award, would that impress you enough to shell out some dough?

I feel very privileged that musicians I work with don’t refer to me as a Jazz Singer and not a “female vocalist.”
