To Think Before We Act

Dear friends, it is raining here in our mountain temperate rain forest of Western North Carolina and life is good sitting and watching the rain, listening to its sound, many thoughts, as always, go through my mind.

​Being a singer-songwriter, an artist, a thinker, ​​I often think about this, and that is, people need to quit gossiping and saying hurtful things about those with whom they have had a falling out. ​This is a sad and useless activity and I have observed this with a heavy heart in my life and in my world of music. ​There was a time when I indulged in such behavior myself and found it to be not only stressful but very detrimental to my career, regardless of whether I felt justified engaging in such behavior or not.

The arguments, fights, difference of opinion, the whatever on these lines​,​ ought to stay between the people​ (often friends, fellow artists, family members, etc.)​ going through with it. If these people cannot mend their relationship, be it professional or personal or both, then they ought to go their own way, bearing this in mind, that at least they learned something from each other, because we all learn from each other regardless! While it may not be easy at first, it becomes eventually easy to take the good that was there and dissolve the bad at the earliest chance, and this can be done by each taking full responsibility for his/her words and actions and getting to the root cause of the situation.

Bottling it up inside can be painful, in which case we can talk it over or share it with a friend we can absolutely trust and who can remain neutral and be a loving sounding board. This friend should by no means talk to another about what he/she just learned. Such behavior is not becoming of a trusted and good friend. ​For the friend, ​being neutral is very important in such cases otherwise the emotions of the hurt person can effect ​him/her​ as well in an unpleasant manner. ​Trust is very important and has to be earned, so we must know our friends well​ and respect their neutrality.​

When one turns around and starts to write on their social media pages about the “friend” they had a falling out with or talks in the same manner to whoever he/she assumes will listen to him/her, then that is a sign of a very immature and insecure human being, and it is also a very vicious and revengeful action, because those who do not know what really happened, do not know the person in question well ​enough except perhaps on Facebook only, are​ expected​ to take sides ​and some do ​and are​ thereby thrown into confusion. It makes me distrust such a human being, personally speaking, when I observe such behavior.

I feel that when we come across such drama online or find ourselves becoming a reluctant sounding board, that we pause and not judge, ​remain​ neutral, because we do not really know well the person ​talking and the person ​being talked about (unless we happen to be a personal friends, but even then), and most importantly ​we cannot really know the ‘WHY’ behind it​. We should not take sides, instead simply be and enjoy our personal friendships with both. Or just pass on by. If we are curious, then we need to find out both sides of the story and come to our own informed conclusion.

Gossiping and bitching behind the back of someone​,​ one had a falling out with, online or offline, and taking sides based on this kind of erroneous judgment, is hurtful first and foremost to the one indulging in such erroneous action, and this ancient law is always working – the law of cause and effect. So we need to be mindful.​ ​We do not want to get embroiled in other people’s business unless we know them well and are fully informed. And we do not want to indulge in such vicious revengeful acts no matter how angry, livid and hurt we are. Most of all, we must not take sides. If we must pick a side, then we must always side with the truth.

A true friend is one, who has the courage to step back, listen, think, see and speak the truth accordingly and knows to remain neutral, refraining from indulging in gossip. Wise people do not take sides, they seek the truth if so inclined. We must view all, listen to all with eyes and ears of a real lover, use our sense of discernment and always offer words of wisdom that we have actually realized from our own experiences. We must always think before we act – this is the wise and right way, which I have learned the hard way myself. ​

Gratitude, Respect, Peace and Love to you who find your way to my page. Thank you for taking and making the time to read.

Radio Indie FreeForm Featured Artist: Elise Lebec



Pianist, Independent Music Composer

Genre: Ambient, Spiritual, Relaxing, Soundtracks

CEO/President of Bay Area Film Company

Elise Lebec, born Tabitha Lebec in San Diego, is an independent music composer. Lebec has been involved in numerous projects from soundtracks to albums, as well as being known for her work with Hip Chick Music, which later dissolved in order to focus on her own music and compose full-time. Lebec was interested in music at a young age. At the age of four, she began playing the piano and developed an interest in the classical genre. She was interested in pop and rock music in high school. Becoming a young traveler she visited New Zealand for two years and then it was off to Australia where in Sydney she met painter Charles Billich. That meeting ignited a fire that produced her debut album Tabitha Plays Billich in 1997.

Elise created the composition instrument by instrument on one of the very first keyboards that talked digitally to a software product called Logic. Logic at the time was brand new thing and so was the idea of recording a composition by performing it into a keyboard, which would then record the notes for you. She would compose by sitting down and designing the string section, then go back and perform the horns and then trumpet or whatever sounds she envisioned.

On her arrival back to the states, Lebec was embraced within a work-study process. Playing with such gifted musicians as Peter Bernstein, Robert Johnson, and Pat Robinson to name a few. The projects were a blend of writing and recording various sounds. Out of those years a new CD release was to take shape in 2004, “Back to Innocence”, again under her birth name of Tabitha Lebec. At that time she returned to her roots on the piano and changed her name to Elise Lebec. In 2006 her new identity and new sound took form in her release of Possible Dreams” “Impressions of a Solo Piano”

Lebec is currently working on a film called Sum Total of Our Memory directed by Barbara Klutinis. As Per Elise’s point of view from her Blog 2014: “I like working with Barbara because she comes from the real aspect of film making to tell a story or to work out a personal issue. I think most great films are made to get a larger viewpoint on a subject that is bothersome and/or inspiring. I think the music for this film turned out to be beautiful and not too mushy, which is good. There are moments where you get to truly reflect on the subject matter in a different way than most films. Barbara uses abstract imagery to convey what it must feel like to be someone with Alzheimer’s. The music in these scenes takes you into that imagery and lets you wander about without leading you too much. All in all I am looking forward to seeing it on the big screen. Next, I am doing the sound efx for another indie film about the Wyoming Cowboys. I do like the variety of my job!”


Here are a few of her Albums that are out and ready for the public’s ear to listen too.

Tabitha Plays Billich (1997), Post Pop Federation (1999 EP), Back to Innocence (Self) (2004), Possible Dreams (Lebec Entertainment, LTD) (2006), Heart Song (July 2015)

I am totally captivated by this Cloudless instrumental piece by Elise and David Darling. This song “Heart Song Avec Cello” is on her Heart Song debut Album.

Radio Indie FreeForm Featured Artist: Ivan and Randy Rane

The Rane Brothers

Ivan and Randy–The Rane Brothers-USA-New Mexico

Randy: Producer/Composer/Guitarist/Roland Guitar Synth Trumpet

Ivan: Producer/Guitarist/Composer/Keyboards/Drummer/Oil Painter/Lead Singer for the Pop Jazz Group “The Rane Brothers”

Genre: Jazz, Pop Jazz, Smooth Jazz, Spanish, Fandango, Latino

Let’s start with making it perfectly clear I can not give admiration to one talented musician without giving recognition to another! The Rane Brothers are brilliant, masterfully rounded, and well known in the music world playing Jazz. For over 30 years these two Sensationalistic polished men are a force to seriously take heed over. But hold the DOOR open… This dynamic duel just doesn’t do Jazz! These sensational musical brothers captivates their audience with STUNNING performances in promoting Spanish and Fandango guitar. In this featured Artist post I am SURE I have missed information on these outstanding musical men; however, I do hope to give lots of links to help promote our Featured Indie Artist of the Month!

I will begin with Randy doing an album called “Latino Global Warming Group.” Which was nominated for Best Latin Contemporary music by N.M.M.A. in 2007. In the Smooth Jazz department songs, the Rane Brothers release “Quicksand” and “Santa Fe Nights” which awarded the clinquant musicians in 2007 a Pop Album of the year by the New Mexico Music Awards. In 2008, “Follow the Rain” album was nominated Best Instrumental album. Produced by Randy and Ivan Rane, on this CD Ivan uses a guitar and keyboards to show off his luminous aptness. In 2009 Randy and a gentleman named Doug Frantz teamed up doing a composition by Randy called “El Pensar En Ti” this song is featured on the Album “Blame” which was nominated Best Jazz Composition of the year in 2009 by New Mexico Music Awards. Randy has been nominated for three New Mexico Music awards, Best World Beat with a song called “Saharan Princess,” Best Hispanic Contemporary song, “FlaJazz” and Best Jazz with “El Pensar En Ti”.

Randy and Ivan Rane were honored in 2010 Four times New Mexico Music Award Nominations for their Spanish Guitar in “Samba Cosita Nueva” This piece is featured by Randy’s superb talent which received Best Hispanic Contemporary. “Sailing Home” featuring Randy on guitar and Ivan on piano. This Latin Jazz fusion of indigenous rhythms song sweeps me away into a Latin American Diaspora who are celebrating the art of Jazz music in harmonious romantic flare. This track was nominated for “Best Jazz” track by N.N.M.A in the year of 2010. Randy glitters his excellence upon using Spanish Guitar with a Retro Trumpet to complete the sagacity track to perfection. Ivan creatively shines using his artfulness upon the keyboards to balance the song to sublimity.

In 2012-Winning composer Randy did a wonderful arrangement of an original composition using a Roland guitar synth on the backtracks called, “Latin Heart.” The video was produced in New Mexico by Ivan Rane. Also a song called “Earth Song” was release in 2012, this snappy fantasy sound track has Flamenco overtones that would delight a romantic dancer. This song showcase’s Randy’s sexy electrifying guitar work.

2013 – Award winning Santa Fe guitarist Randy Rane performs an original composition that includes musical ideas he performs with a Roland GR guitar synth and his Spanish Ramirez midi classical guitar controlling a Korg workstation keyboard. Mr.Rane puts these elements together live and on stage. The video was produced by Ivan Rane  (Latin Heart)

2014- Award winning Randy demonstrates his marvelous idealism called “Neck Illusions” on a YouTube Video. It truly is a soothing moment to view this wonderful artist’s whisk you away with his stunning gift! In 2015- the brother team releases several more songs. “The Last Rumba” Randy features Ramirez midi guitar and has a dynamic on command live accompaniment in this composition. This song was recorded and mixed by the incredible Ivan Rane. Together the “Rane Brothers” have produced their quality music to the public. In this mix you will hear live cymbals and electric piano were later to arete this powerful track.


2015- A groovy contemporary pop jazz track called “Sonoma” is a stupendous hit featuring Ivan Rane on the guitar and produced by Ivan and Randy. Together these talented gentlemen create an Award Winning Group called the “The Rane Brothers.”  A special thank you goes out to Jose’ Ramirez Guitars involvement with this divine track! The marvelous duel is also very interested in producing music for the film industry and have started the process of making it a reality!
