Somebody asked me the other day why I write songs. I guess I don't really know. I kind of think of it as light passing through a prism. I feel like the world around me affects me so much, whether I want it to or not, that it filters through me and has to come out in a new form. While a part of me wants people out there to listen to my music (and hopefully like it), it's really not a priority for me anymore. I write for myself, like therapy. That's why the other day, when I found out my song, "War" was a grand prize winner in a songwriting contest, it was so nice to feel validated for writing well, in the eyes of the 'experts.' Validation doesn't really happen very often in the art world, unless, of course, you're dead. And there aren't really any monetary benefits. So that's why I'm especially excited about this new gear that I won; it's exactly what I need to record my new album.
Thank you JLSC!

3 months in Costa Rica has inspired me beyond words. Some consistent, recurring themes have been: learning to really LIVE and the definition of what that is; extracting all things negative from your life & making a concerted effort to surround yourself with positive people; and learning to love yourself, your soul, in its entirety & understanding what 'self' really is. I am so thankful for the people and experiences along the way who have helped me find the right path. I feel free.

Feliz Año Nuevo a todos! Estoy viviendo en Costa Rica ahora y me encanta mucho. Es posible que voy a escribir algunas canciones mientras estoy aquí, tal vez un álbum completamente nuevo! Ese es mi objetivo, así como la mejora en español. Este país es tan inspirador, especialmente a todas las personas que he conocido. No estoy seguro cuando voy a volver a NY, pero no tengo prisa. Espero que todo el mundo está teniendo un gran comienzo para el nuevo año!

‘Lunic’ to make Maui debut Friday
Performance part of ‘American Music Festival and Conference’
October 25, 2012
By JON WOODHOUSE, For The Maui News
The American Music Festival and Conference 2012, which launched on Monday and continues through the weekend, has a mission to inspire new original music. With that aim, 40-plus bands featuring a spectrum of musical styles from New York, Virginia, Dallas and Mississippi, to Chicago, Italy, and the islands will perform at various clubs culminating in a grand finale on Sunday at Camp Keanae.
This unique event includes live performances, workshops, clinics, showcases and industry networking.
One of the exciting acts making their Maui debut is Lunic, an electronic/rock/pop one-woman band from New York. Multi-instrumentalist Kaitee Page is Lunic. On her latest album, "Future Sex Drama," a beguiling blend of ethereal synthpop and electronic rock, she does a Prince, playing all the instruments.

Imagine a cross between such English electro-pop bands as Ladytron and The xx with the swirl of classic Pet Shop Boys.
"Listen to Kaitee Page's dense, classical arrangements and her angelic yet dynamic voice and it's hard to believe it's only been two years since she launched her all-out assault on pedestrian pop rock armed with her piano, violin and hitherto unknown songwriting chops," praised Citybeat.
A classically trained violist/violinist, Lunic fuses contemporary and classical instrumentation with electronic music composition.
To debut songs from her latest recording on Maui she will employ an array of loops and samplers with various live instruments. "I played all the instruments on my album, so at shows for drum beats I either trigger them live or have them programmed electronically," Page explains. "I'll pick up the violin in the middle of a set and I have a mini-Korg keyboard and play electric guitar."
Page first began studying viola as an 8-years-old. That training led to the violin. "I have 5-string electric, so it's both a viola and a violin," she says.
The violin has become a distinctive element in a number of contemporary bands from Arcade Fire and Dave Mathews to Ra Ra Riot. "My favorite band is Placebo and in some of their live videos they have a touring electric violinist," she notes.
Releasing her first recording in 2008, a collection of demo songs called "Skeletons," Lunic's official debut album "Lovethief," followed a year later.
Among her composing credits she placed in the top three of the 2011 John Lennon Songwriting Contest's Electronic Category and received an honorable mention for her song "Oh No Yoko!" at the 2010 SongCircle Songwriter Awards.
Her obvious talent has allowed her to finance her career through fan supported web sites. In recent years a number of emerging artists have been able accomplish recording success through this novel medium, bypassing the typical music label route.
A New York Times article about a 2010 music industry report noted: "The sum spent on a new artist or group is typically $1 million. The report did not point out that the approximately 4,000 lucky artists who are on the rosters of the major record companies represent 0.3 percent of the artists found on MySpace."
"Before I started on my own I played violin and keyboards in the band Porcelain, which was signed to Universal Records," Page says. "And I learned there was a down side to a major label. I wanted to not have a middle person and play directly to fans and hear their voices giving me ideas. You're owned with a major label so that's why I chose to do the last two albums on a fan-funded basis, through Sellaband. More well known bands are doing it now like IAMX. They just raised their entire budget in 24 hours on PledgeMusic. The lead singer of the Dresden Dolls raised $1 million on Kickstarter. And Rusted Root is now raising money on their own website. You can just make art for fans. You don't have to have somebody telling you to be more like Kelly Clarkson or Britney Spears. You can just be yourself and be true to the art."
The American Music Festival and Conference continues tonight with a Rap Showcase at Oceans, featuring Jordan Frescher, Marly Dumarz and LilJ.
On Friday, Lulu's Lahaina will host a Halloween-Cosplay Bash with Lunic and DJ Nocturna with prizes for best costume.
The festival moves to Keanae for the final two days, running from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.
On Saturday a back-porch campfire jam will feature Homesick Elephant, Carpool to Nashville, Pa'amana, Dan Saunders, Christina Gomes, Stef Muzic, Art of Whimsy and Joel Katz.
Sunday's finale includes music by Edge of Paradise, Lunic, Abbey St. John, Homesick Elephant, Saving the Orphan, Flashdrive, and more. Plus there's an all-ages Halloween Cosplay Ball with internationally celebrated DJ/producer Kraddy.
Workshops during the weekend will feature Karyn Sarring of the music department at UH Maui College with "How to Get What You Want Out of Your Music;" Scott Patrick Sellitto of Dancing Mice Productions with "Music in Film and Visual Media;" and Hunter Scott of LaFamos PR & Branding discussing PR assessments.
* The American Music Festival and Conference 2012 runs today through Sunday. Admission to club dates is $8. All day tickets for Camp Keanae events are $48. For more info visit www.amfc2012hawaii.com.
