Egads, another post but this is about MUSIC

Before I got married and landed in the office of a Reproductive Endocrinologist (um, two weeks after my wedding but that is truly a story for another day – we don’t need to see the words “I digress” around here) I was a singer and a songwriter.  I tried, I tried so, so hard (under the name Suzanne Smith).  I loved every minute of it, I did. The photo shoots (yes, I had a real live record contract – three of them w/Polygram, Sony and Universal!). The guy who owned my label is Eddie O’Loughlin – famous for giving the world Salt n Pepa but so many others (including John Travolta!) – is one of my all time favorite people in the world.  I love that man like few others – he once told me that I was just too nice to be successful.  I think he was right.  But wow did I have fun trying!  I met coo, interestingl people, I wrote with Rick Astley (SUPER nice guy) and all kinds of artists from the 80s. I almost wrote with Lady Gaga back when she was just some girl….  I was photographed in closed down restaurants (Fez on Lafayette in NYC) and I was in recording studios almost every night of my 20s until the wee hours touching up vocals or rewriting lyrics.  I don’t regret a single thing.  Next Plateau/Universal still exists and Eddie is the head of A&R on the Voice television show.  We keep in touch. Turns out I didn’t really want to be famous – I just wanted to sing and to be loved.  Now I sing to kids and I am loved by my miracle 8 year old embryo…..so here is my new blog and one of my songs.  I’ll post the others in the coming days as a few of my preschool kids have asked to hear the songs…they were missing! Then just the other day I found them.  Kismet.  http://suzannesmithsongs.wordpress.com is where I will keep them for now.  I know, they are dated sonically but maybe Eddie will find “a voice” to record them and up they will go…or not. One thing harder slightly less difficult than IVF is the music biz – I don’t wish either on my worst enemy.  No offense to my record biz friends…. 🙂 And if you know any 20 year old kids who have a great voice, send me an email. HEY, you never know!!!  Enjoy, I did….xo
