Ginseng's Profile Page
Information Written by Ginseng
My story:I got the name Ginseng from a fellow singer, who was avidly telling his neighbor (who was not a native English speaker), "Man, you should hear Jen sing"... and the neighbor thought he said, "Man, you should hear Ginseng"... and that's how I became Ginseng. Kind of like Madonna, but more organic. ;o) Or how about a female Michael Buble? Yeah, I like that idea...
I'm recording with a basic mic, no effects, just li'l ol' me.
My SS presence:
I do my best to remain sincere in my comments so if I leave you one, you can take it to heart I'm an INTJ type so my comments are of the short succinct variety in general. I'm sorry if any of you are offended by my non-gushiness but I do my best to listen and leave a comment or message in response. I really appreciate the warmth and friendliness of the SS community. I really enjoy listening to different voices and suggesting songs that I think showcase the talented voices you all have. Bless you all.
I encourage you all to check out this amazing singsnapper, MichaelWarrilow. He is one of the most talented singers I have come across and really deserves more attention than he gets:http://www.singsnap.com/snap/profile/recordings/a522662
My musical background:
I'm not a professional musician... I don't have a lot of raw natural talent like a lot of folks but I feel though singing is not about talent... it's about expressing yourself... singing is like breathing... pretty hard to live without it!
To Linda- thanks for the encouragement!
It's crazy I think some people leave comments without listening to someone's song... I try to be sincere and I enjoy reading personal comments from my SS friends. Please don't post self-aggrandizing "click here to Nominate me for HOF" graphics as a comment on my page or pictures with that dancing baby (it creeps me out). I'd be happy to listen to a special song of yours if you send me a message though.
Sometimes something magical happens and the music works just right... some of my favorite duets with my fellow Snappers:
Tonedef & I doing "All My Life"
Moe & I doing "Falling Slowly"
Boerni & I doing "When the Stars Go Blue"
