Sounds Like Summer!
Like so many, I am starting to dip my toe into the land outside my home after a long 16 month quarantine and all things pandemic. My heart is still a bit heavy, and with many parts of the world still struggling, it is hard to go into to full celebration mode.
I want to thank you for listening and can honestly say that creating new music for you has been a saving grace for me over the past year. Today, I am so excited to share this cool collaboration with the sweet musical team Smash Mob . What a blast they are to work with! Now You Want Me Back is now streaming on all platforms, and I have shared the sweet lyric video made with loving care by Frank Rogala. This is a fun, windows rolled down, with a sprinkle of retro girl group vibe, just in time for us all to take a breath and soak up some lighter days.
New Self Produced Single
Happy New Year all! Kicking off 2021 with a the release of my first fully self produced song "I Went Inside"! Over the past years I have been working towards moving into the producer engineering seat, taking courses and studying with some great mentors along the way. As a songwriter and singer I have felt drawn to take on the production side of my songs. It's a huge milestone for me, and I am excited to share the outcome with you musically from here forward! You can enjoy "I Went Inside" on all streaming platforms or you can download it here on my site. Here's the Spotify link for you Spotify users!- https://open.spotify.com/album/76fQj3PXBN1mKcagBcQUvj?si=MGT7X5LlSRaMJJJwibG_TA
My single The Cure is now streaming on all platforms! I have continued to write and record throughout my quarantine life, and this song is definitely for anyone that may need a hopeful point of view about the times we are living through. As we head into the holidays, with still so much uncertainty and division in our country and around the world, it saddens me that we are struggling to get out of our own way. The Cure is a lovely call come together and reach across the aisle, or over the fences in our own backyards.
Lately I feel so grateful for the simpler things. A roof over my head, my pup, family, the ability to keep writing and making music. Thank you as always for your support!
From My Home to Yours
It's hard to believe that it's Fall. This is truly my favorite time of year, where I traditionally take stock and hunker in and recommit to writing and practicing. This year feels very different, in that so much of the Spring and Summer was spent tethered to the house. With live music on hold, there has been more time to write and really slow down and look around. Recently I wrote a song for the Seattle Bushwick Bookclub inspired by the book How to Do Nothing by Jenny Odell. The book inspired this song "Before We Went Inside" Hope you enjoy. Stay Healthy!
