YVE AND MORE
Yve is currently in the midst of a year-long challenge to Write A New Song A Week For A Year and shares each new track every Sunday along with the story and teaching behind it. The latest episode is posted here.
GOTTA BREAK THROUGH THIS
This week’s track is called “Gotta Break Through This!” and Yve Anmore had to break through a slump to create it. This R&B/Pop flavoured, track's title definitely has many levels to it, because it can be about breaking through a slump or reaching an impasse in your life. Perhaps you’re stuck in a relationship, situationship, or job you’ve outgrown and you're feeling trapped. Or just like you can’t move forward and there’s no going back. Tune in to hear the story and teaching behind this week's track.
DIDN'T KNOW THAT
It's the 6 month anniversary of the song challenge episodes! Woo Hoo! Track 26 "Didn't Know That" is a major milestone for Yve. She can't quite believe she's got this far in the challenge. This track is about how fear, money, and power are all interlinked. How we're all so easily controlled by the fear of not having enough and how that control is the oldest game in town.
CHILD OF THE WOMB OF LIFE
This week's track Child of The Womb of Life is about honouring your gifts, your talents, and yourself, but this often requires moving from self-abandonment to self-love. Tune in to listen to this upbeat track with an EDM/House music flavour and allow Yve to share the intriguing story and deeper wisdom behind this track.
WEATHER THE STORM
Weather The Storm: This week's track is a soothing piano-based soundtrack that juxtaposes the chaos of the storminess of life currently - whether that storminess is appearing on a personal or a global level. Yve Anmore shares a little insight into her own personal storms and the global storms we're currently facing.
FREE WILL'S YOUR SUPERPOWER
We all have a superpower and it's called Free Will! But in order to access that power, we have to actively acknowledge and choose it. Track 23 - a track with a smooth reggae/r&b vibe, explores how our free will allows us to respond rather than react to stressful life situations. We all have a superpower and it's called Free Will!

Track 23 - a track with a smooth reggae/r&b vibe, explores how our free will allows us to respond rather than react to stressful life situations.
"Burning Up" this week's upbeat and funky track is about when it's time to release a deeply embedded pattern of behaviour and birth into a more expansive you. This process can feel like burning up, burning away that pattern, and be experienced as a mixture of "Ow!" and "Wow!" But it's ultimately a deeply healing process.
INTEGRATE YOUR INNER STATE
Yve Anmore shares track 21 and the story and teaching behind it. "Integrate Your Inner State," asks how can we celebrate who we are until we really know who we are? And the only way to really know who we are is to investigate the coded patterns, parental and societal conditioning, and sometimes traumas, that dictate our daily lives.
EVEN THE BLUES CAN BE GOOD FOR YOU
Hard times can often be a major catalyst for personal, societal, and spiritual growth. What on the surface looks like just struggle, corruption and difficulty can at a deeper level be a pointer to the dissolution of old structures and the birth of new ways of being in the world.
Reborn - is a track in 2 parts and it led Yve on an introspective inner journey because it insisted it be allowed to be what it is. She shares how she initially struggled to get to grips with the major contrasts in rhythm, feel and sound between the verses and the chorus.
AIN'T ABOUT IT
Yve Anmore is not a happy bunny this week! Yve shares track 18 "Ain't About It" and tells us why this week her song challenge left her feeling drained, confused, and quite frankly highly miffed!
Woohoo! Yve's a 3rd of the way through the 52-week song challenge with track no. 17! Lessons (un)Learned. But before sharing this week's track she takes us through a swift recap of some of the tracks she shared, the teachings that inspired them, and the lessons she's learned along the way.
HERE WE ARE (REAL LOVE)
An Afro-Caribbean-beat Conscious Love Song? Seems that way! Sticking with the Conscious Love theme and Afrobeat vibe for track 16, Yve Anmore explores the difference between a Conscious and Intentional Love Relationship
LOVE COMES IN MANY FLAVOURS
Track 15 Love Come in Many Flavours, indeed! This week's track was inspired by afrobeat rhythms and fused with soulful, light vocals, a compelling bassline, and jazzy piano accents. Tune in to hear how watching a Stefflon Don story on Instagram inspired this song.
Soulful Jazz with track 14 this week an Inner Revolution. Yve Anmore really is in the midst of an Inner Revolution and that seems to include opening herself up to more musical genres due to the song challenge.
This is track 13 called What's True? Yve Anmore thought she'd try writing instrumental music for a soundtrack. There are no limits or genres off-limits in this 52 Week Song Challenge!
YOU GOT TO SURRENDER
Track 12 You Got To Surrender is the title of this week's track and boy did Yve Anmore have a doozy of a week that required endless surrender to the process and to her frazzled state of mind too!
Track 11: This week's track is called "Everybody's Fronting." It's another style departure for Yve Anmore and the first mixed and mastered track in the challenge. She just felt moved to master this track. In this episode, she shares why she's finding the song challenge so nurturing and the changes she's thinking of making to her podcast platform to make it a more nurturing experience too.
LET IT RAIN DOWN
We're in double digits! Woohoo! This week's track is called "Let It Rain Down (Your Blessings)" and paradoxically Yve shares how she's had a really sh*tty week, not feeling at all motivated or blessed. The irony is that it is exactly the type of scenario she deals with on the regular. You can't just talk the talk, you have to walk the walk
EVERYTHING IS ENERGY
This week's track, track 9 is Everything is Energy. In this episode, Yve Anmore shares the latest track from her song challenge. The song challenge not only supports her creative and professional development as an artist, but she's also learning it supports, her spiritual development to
YOU GOT IT BABE
This week's track track 8: "You Got It Babe" a powerful ballad, is about going through some of the toughest times in your life, even feeling maybe that life or God is against you when in actuality your inner wisdom or God is telling you, "You got it babe." and "I've got your back."
YOU CAN DO IT!
Track 7 already! Somehow The Bajan Empress found her way onto this week's track called "You Can Do It!" And the title alone should tell you why she's the perfect lead for this track. Tune in to hear this inspirational, motivational and heart-warming track combining the best of The Bajan Empress and Yve Anmore.
Song Challenge, track 6: InHer Space. This track is a new departure for Yve Anmore. It's so different from the music she usually creates, that she suspects that it will be a difficult listen for some. Nonetheless, she follows her heart and goes with it.
KNOW WHO YOU ARE
Another week, another new song! In this episode, Yve Anmore shares her latest song from the song challenge titled "Know Who You Are" and lets us in on how she hit a creative wall in the writing of the track that was resolved by a 'happy mistake.'
It's time for song no. 4! titled Explore. Yve Anmore shares the latest track from her song challenge, tells us the story behind it and also lets us in on why she's had a really rough week emotionally and how that impacted her focus with regard to the challenge. She also tells us about the mysterious bass player she sees in her mind's eye every time she plays this track!
