I just launched the second album of my Guided Relaxation CD "Letting Go Vol 2" for people who are stressed, overworked and wanting to be more mentally positive. BUT, this time round, there's a track dedicated to people suffering from insomnia as well! If you fall asleep while listening to it, please write and let me know. It will put a smile on my face! Actually, my sound engineer fell asleep while editing the track and didn't know where he was when he woke up to an empty office so he's given me his wholehearted stamp of approval for the "Falling Asleep" track working a bit too well ;)
Well, when I was tossing round ideas for the album cover, I eventually decided I wanted to be shot in water. There's something relaxing and therapeutic about water. In fact, my voice was recorded over the sound of ocean waves in some of the tracks.

The behind the scenes video from the making of the album is here:
It was really challenging to be shot floating in water because you can't totally control where your hair is or your clothes for that matter because everything kept moving but I'm glad it all came together. I was trying to "let go" and just feel the moment and I think we captured that mood but it helps that I had such an awesome team. Simon Chin from Studio Pashe took these shots (yup, he's one of Malaysia's most famous fashion photographers!) and my waterproof make up was courtesy of MAC Cosmetics. This was one of my most memorable shoots...
"Letting Go with Jojo Struys Vol 2", which has double the no of tracks as Vol 1, retails nationwide in Starbucks at RM27 but with a Starbucks card, you can get it for just RM19.90.
