I’m excited to release my new music video for my second single, “I Can’t Tell You Why”.

The song pretty much sums up every pointless argument I have ever had with my spouse. To me, there was only one way to cover this song. True to the original, however, taking the tone of a woman trying to rationalise an argument the morning after.

The remake of the Eagles’ classic was produced in Perth by Troy Nababan. The single features the cream of Australia’s rock musicians: Cameron Barrett, Ryan Rafferty, Leon Todorovic and Troy Nababan.

The original was written by Timothy B. Schmit, Glenn Frey, Don Henley in 1979.

The music video for “I Can’t Tell You Why” was directed by photographer Peter Coulson, who also directed the music video for “This Time”.

“This Time”

Hi everyone, I’m super excited to announce the release of “This Time”.

The song was written and produced by Jason Singh and Lukether Batterbury.

I performed it at Melbourne’s iconic Athenaeum Theatre to my gorgeous husband, Dr Rick Wolfe, for our anniversary.  I hadn’t been on stage for 20 years before this moment.

When I was a young woman, my life’s direction took a massive detour.  My singing career was going well.  I was a signed Singer/Songwriter with Warner Chapel Music.  I had plenty of studio time under my belt and I wasn’t even twenty yet.  It came as quite a shock when I started losing my hearing. It was due to otosclerosis.

Although I had surgery to fix the condition, I never trusted my hearing until now. If you can’t hear, you can’t pitch.  It broke my heart.

Rick organised the most amazing boost to my hearing.  Afterwards I felt so confident that I started taking secret singing lessons. I would sneak out once a week to meet up with Carolyn Waddell, who is better known in the theatre set as Cal.

Rick and I love live music and we hired Jason Singh to play at Luke’s twenty-first.  Rick has tried to encourage me to get up on stage to sing with all matter of bands since I met him, literally every time a band is in our general vicinity.   To the musician’s relief I have always said no.  Not this time.  I asked Jason to help me.   To my relief he agreed to and wrote the most amazing song for me to sing to my husband.  It’s called “This Time”. I cry almost every time I try to sing it.

It has given me new life.  Jason Singh and Lukether Batterbury are the most brilliant producers.  I chose Valentine’s Day to release the song.  I hope you love it as much as we do.

Hugs, Gamble Breaux
