Auld Lang Syne – in the style of Mairi Campbell – a.k.a. “…you know, that version that they play in Sex and the City!”

(…and I sincerely hope any Scottish person listening to this will forgive my accent…;)… it was a very spontaneous decision to record this as well…)

susawagnermusic – my new “twin blog”

Hello everybody! As many of you already might know from previous posts, I used to be an active singer/performer back in Germany. Since I have moved to the USA this year, I am right now in the process of re-establishing myself in the music business. And so: A new blog!


Heek 5

Here, I will not only post audio samples, my own songs and recordings, but also links to useful tools and resources and other articles that might be interesting for fellow musicians and other artists and creative people – since that is part of what I refer to as “Creative Consulting” in my line of work. And – there might be some stories and anecdotes as well 😉

So – consider yourself invited to hop over there and have a look and lend an ear and leave your comments – and hopefully enjoy the music!


TedTalk: “How YouTube thinks about copyright” (German and other subtitles available/bei Bedarf mit deutschen Untertiteln)

I used to edit YouTube videos (especially during the Tube’s pre-Google era and mainly about darling Jeremy Brett). Every now and then I would get a notification about problems regarding the copyright of the music I used for the background…
Nowadays the copyright question is once more of special interest to me, though this time around it is regarding my plans for promoting my work as a writer as well as singer via YouTube videos.
Yeah, marketing yourself/your work online seems to be of an ever increasing importance for people like me/us, and often this does indeed include YouTube (or Vimeo or Dailymotion etc.). The more important to get a bit educated regarding actual copyright regulations, right?
(For my German language readers: Für das Video könnt Ihr Untertitel in diversen Sprachen einstellen, u.a. auch in Deutsch.)
