'Focus' Lo Tide Feat. Carolyn

I'm so excited to finally share the news with you. Myself and Sam Grieve of Lo Tide in Australia collaborated on another song and created a video also! Some of you will remember that I did a call out looking for people to send me videos. This is the fruit of that labour.

The video is a collage of home videos sent into me literally from around the world, of people telling me their ultimate goals and focus in life. It is raw and honest, determined and beautiful and I'm so grateful for the huge response. Thank you to everyone involved. We all have goals. Do them. Achieve them. Ignore any negativity that comes at you as a result of you trying to achieve. 

We are all human. We all have goals. We all want positive things.

The song is available to purchase now as part of Lo Tides latest EP 'At The End' which drops on June 16th. So if you pre-order the EP now, you will get this song straight away. 


Focused on the goal
Can't be swayed, can't be sold
A mission to transition
From silver to gold
Force to be reckoned with
Power of the mind
I know I'm only young
But I make use of my time


'Cuz I'm Focused
'Cuz I'm Focused and I
Know what I'm doing
What I'm doing with my life

Ignore all distractions
Remember it's you
Law of attraction
Will pull you through
So find a way
And navigate 
Through the hate,
The constant slate(ing)
And don't tolerate
'Cuz I'm focused (cuz I'm focused!)
And I know what I'm doing (and I know what I'm doing!)
And it might not make much sense to you
But I know where I'm moving to! 
So you do you
And I'll do me too! 


Forget yesterday,
You did what you did
The hours are gone
Now carry on.

Carry on..
Carry on..

Lyrics written and sung by Carolyn. Music by Lo Tide.

Want to be in a Music Video?

In this music video you would need to simply record a 20 second video of you holding up a sign (or it can be written on your hand etc.) with either one word or a few words about what your ultimate life goal is or what your current goal in life is. It must be something you have to FOCUS on, work hard at getting or/and need to overcome other people's doubts in order to remain focused and succeed. This could be anything from working for NASA to buying a house. Whatever it is, it must be meaningful to you.

To confirm details about what is needed:

Video must have you clearly in the frame and whatever you have written must be very clear on camera also.

What you write must be in black marker only.

You don't need to say anything, just stare at the camera. This is a song about being focused, empowerment, overcoming all barriers to achieve your goals. So look determined. Let it be from the heart :)

The video must be 20 seconds long.

You must email it to me with your written permission to use this footage that you have sent in the video along with your full name and country as you will be credited at the end of the video.

This is open worldwide. We all have goals, ambitions and dreams.

Although I cannot pay you, I will be sure that you receive credit if your video is used. You will have it on your CV also. I will also email you the link to the video when it is released if your video is used in it. 

*****NOW CLOSED*****

All entries must be emailed to : carolynmcahill@gmail.com

Le Crunch Song Competiton 2017

This year I am excited to announce that I have entered the Le Crunch Apples Competition 2017!
You simply upload a video where you are covering a song and I have chosen 'Summertime'. It is one of my all time favourite songs, I sung it as a child (for some reason). I know there are many artists who are all famous for singing this song like Billie Holiday and Frank Sinatra (and many more) but Ella Fitzgerald is the woman I always thought of when I think of this song.

It is not my best performance, I am aware, but like many I was hit with the flu, chest infection, throat infection and all those lovely stomach bugs that have taken over Ireland this winter! Therefore I am doing constant work to get my vocals back on track after such a hard hit. I didn't want to miss out on the opportunity of entering, so it was this or nothing. If you're not in you can't win :) 

I hope you enjoy! It is up on all my main social medias which I will link below if you don't follow me there already. If you like it, please do share or retweet etc.
