Connie Blackwood, (MacLeod) Another Pretty Face…Absolutely Not! This winsome A/C artist has been busy Writing, Producing, Promoting & Performing her inspiring catalog of songs to audiences across the United States & internationally, on Stage, Film, Television & Radio.
Heaven knows no boundaries for a true romantic like Connie. Her thought provoking lyrics and haunting melodies can inspire even the toughest of cynics.
A culmination of four years work with Grammy Award Winning Engineer, John Blanche, the music of “I Wish You Well” inspired a talented team to produce the “Ocean Bird” video. This awarded production was filmed along Romantic Florida Beaches & atop the historical Ponce Inlet Light House.
The completed music video was promptly selected to debut in New York City Picture Start’s 3rd annual Film Fest held at “Arlene’s Grocery.” Afterwards introduced by Jon Rohrer on WEBE-TV
Not being a pampered girl, Connie works hard in multiple facets of the entertainment world, earning her Actor’s Equity Card performing in Honky-Tonk Highway, produced by Gabriel Barre, then taking to the big screen with indie film roles, including Teen-Age Mutant Ninja Turtles, Tarzan – the Epic Adventures & HBO’s From The Earth To The Moon, directed by Sally Field. Who, incidentally, along with Rita Wilson, encouraged, “You go girls!” upon discovering Connie & another actress doing the hokey-pokey as entertainment for extras between filming! While Connie hopes to land more film roles, her first passion is music.
If she’s in your area, catch a live show, like this House of Blues appearance with Tosh Ono and Sheila Verde, showcasing I Wish You Well, You’re the One, co-written with Carlos Mogollen, A Sunny Stretch of Beach, All I Want is a Kiss, My Angel and The Whale Song.
Connie takes you to Lush Tropical Dream lands, Across Oceans & Uncharted Waters. Sung from the heart, these melodies will stay with you long after the CD is done playing. Let the Journey Begin…
