Just preparing the website for something that i am bursting to tell you about! At the moment i am not at liberty to say as i know how this will be received by many if i did mention it now. Has that given it away?
To people who know me they will just roll their eyes and know that this was inevitable as there is a 'something' that i absolutely love and turns me into a big kid, has this now given it away? I don't think it is a good idea to say anymore as i am too tempted to say :)
All i can say is that i am very excited and a lot of people will not see this coming.
Change of subject...
Have you taken a peak at the new photos that are on my website? If you haven't seen them here is a link to my [Photos] on the SGC website. The colours for She's Got Claws are naturally greens and blues to represent the eyes of the cat (yes i know some cats have amber eyes but this isn't a favourite colour of mine) so when O-Ten approached me to do this shoot in red, well i was curious to see how they would turn out and how they would fit within the whole image of She's Got Claws. I personally think he has done a fantastic job, what do you think?
If you are on [Facebook] then there is an album dedicated to O-Ten's photography of She's Got Claws, plus it will give you the opportunity to have a look at my [Facebook] page and to maybe ['Like'] it? :)
The next Blog i write will reveal what i was trying not to talk about in the first paragraph of this blog lol!
She's Got Claws' website is being updated this month with lots of new photos (including the ones just mentioned) and professional photos of Mau Studios. Keep also checking the [News] page for updates.
If you have joined the [SGC mailing list] then you will receive a personal e-mail from me telling you all about what is happening for the rest of 2013 and this 'something' that i can't wait to tell you about ;)
Ooh almost forgot .. have you had a chance to listen to 'Wreckage to the World' remix of Blind by Ziplodocus? It's on SGC's [Home] page. Shaun also played guitar on a few of the songs on SGC's album, hopefully one day soon he will do the same again. So thank you Shaun for a great remix.
Bye for now!

There is now a remix of Blind available to listen to on SGC's Music Page and the Home Page. It is not just there to listen to, you can also download this for free as a thank you for your support.
The title of the mix will hopefully give you an idea as to what the song is about. Finding names for remixes can be a little daunting but this one just popped into my head. Chris, my manager, believes it is very Hurts, which has given him reason to tease me. Hurts is one of my favourite bands and so this is a compliment. I wonder where they get their suits from? ;)
Bye for now!

So now we are in October. The leaves are now starting to fall from the trees and you can see your breath and your nose wants to drop off!
Not to worry, i have a gift for you.. something that will keep you warm by making you bounce around like a happy idiot all through the cold spell! I have arranged a download from the website Music Glue, who have kindly created a profile for She's Got Claws on their website with a download to you for ... FREE!! Yes i knew that would make you smile and warm your brass monkeys! Click on the Music Glue Logo below to take you straight there, the song is all ready for you to enjoy and to help keep the winter chills at bay ... Enjoy!! Micci xx
Come and have a look, there are lots of new features including at the top right of each page a direct link to SGC's Twitter and Facebook, a new page called 'STUDIO' which will take you through the making of SGC's debut album, plus lots of new photos! The Studio page will be complete by next Saturday, so please keep checking :)
Please also let me know what you think of the new look, i personally believe it pulls the image more in line and represents the feel of the album.
The image, however, is mutating as i can never stay still for very long. The hair is now blue which will stay for a little while and the clothes will keep changing too.
At the moment we are in talks with a Video company to make a video for my song 'Blind' and this will show a new look, which is under wraps at the mo ;)
The single 'Blind' will be out around November (date to be confirmed) along with a fantastic remix!
Lots of stuff planned, so exciting! Then after all the above it'll be Christmas woohoo! :D My album is still available to download with free artwork so would make a fantastic stocking filler. Comments welcomed about the new look of the website, looking forward to hearing from you :) Micci Lou xx
New photos are being uploaded to this site and my Facebook every week. The look of She's Got Claws is getting an upgrade so my 'Photos' page and the entire website will have a different look very soon! Hope you like the new look, my hair is now blue, which is my favourite colour :) Looking forward to reading your comments about the new look website and photos :) It'll take me a couple of weeks to get this all together so please keep checking. Below is one of the photos that has inspired me to give my website a different look... Don't forget that you can still buy my album from all the top sites, go to my 'Music' page for direct links.
Hope to hear from you soon!
Love Micci Lou xxxx

Hello peeps! Have you downloaded my album? If so, would love to hear from you and which songs are your faves! I always look forward to hearing from you so please take a few mins to send me a message, i shall answer them personally :)
I was in a bar last Sunday and a friend showed me how my album looks on iTunes, as he had downloaded it. All i can say is... WOW! A tingle of excitement as i watched his phone pull up the album artwork with my music blasting out of it!
That's it, now i know what i need... an iPhone!! Are there any sweet people out there that has an iPhone that i could have??? Lol only kidding, however if you have one that you are not using anymore as you have the latest then i would truly appreciate it if you could consider selling it to me.. at a reasonable price :) I am soooo jealous of how my album looks on an iPhone and how the music sounds, my phone is great but an iPhone is something else!!
My friend's favourite song is 'Cry for and Angel', would love to know yours and where you bought the album from too! :)
Looking forward to hearing from you very soon! Lots of love to you all - Micci Lou xx
