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
