I’ve always been passionate about song writing,  for me it’s a way of communicating. It’s my expression and how I interpret the world around me. – Ruth Royall

Kathleen Gyllenhaal Speaks About Her Latest Film In Utero

I had the privilege to speak with the very earthy and inspirational Kathleen Gyllenhaal.
An acclaimed writer – film maker – producer – mother – married to Stephen Gyllenhaal whom she collaborates on many projects with.
Her latest offering was directing a documentary film titled ‘In Utero’ which is a fascinating look at how the mother’s physical – mental – emotional and lifestyle environment may be effecting her unborn child.

At first I felt ‘oh wow – what else can we put on our shoulders as women!’

I was so relieved to discover we are all just doing the best that we can.
‘In Utero’ is a well thought through film with intriguing professional perspectives encouraging us to really think about it all.

Watch the trailer below at In Utero Film and find out how you can host a screening.

Dave Cheetham Stops By To Share His Latest Album – One Star Away

I love hopeless love stories. My fav movie choices make me cry and my kids laugh at me all the time. I think it’s okay and I’m old enough to do that. All this time I’ve been a fan of romance and I never knew it.

Do what you love – love what you do – is our mantra at Fresh Independence.
Best part of that is meeting so many nice people.

Early on we had the pleasure of bumping into songwriter Dave Cheetham from Deganwy, Wales.
Filled with British charm and a wise cracking demeanour that will keep you on your toes, he never fails to come through when we need him most.
He’s come by to share his latest album ‘One Star Away’ – with the title song inspired by astronaut Scott Kelly – who reflected his thoughts while gazing upon the face of earth.
Lovely to the core – we invite you to share our conversation and get to know more about this man behind the music.

Don McLean – History Plays On

An enlightening conversation with singer, songwriter Don McLean who’s living proof that three chords are all you need – and then the rest is up to you.

‘I heard Woody Guthrie play and I heard a verse and a chorus and I thought hey I think I can do that. I wrote everything off a guitar and as I got to be a better guitar player my songs grew.’

I really enjoyed speaking with Don who brings you back to where it all started for him – what he’s learned along the way and how much he still loves playing music today.

“Take control, get your life to the place you want it to be – in the height of my career people thought I had it made but Kenny Rogers was right when he said ‘in truth you’re not having any kind of life at all.'”
