Nice words on Painting the Silence Vol. 1 

So I heard my phone beep this morning at 7:07!!! Who is even awake at that hour let alone on a Sunday? Obviously I ignored it and went back to sleep. Wouldn't you? When I woke up I saw that it was an e-mail which I then read. Because that's what you do. Read e-mails. Right? haha.

Now lately I've been a little down. This happens post release. There is so much going on around the release of a record that my energy is high and focused and the excitement is easy. Then there's the let down period. I try to…

2 Songs from "Painting the Silence Vol. 1" on WEXT Countdown 

Howdy

I hope everyone had a great holiday season. It's been blistering cold here in Upstate NY. Today is 35 and I feel like I should wear shorts. Heatwave!

I've been laying low and taking a little break but I'm happy to announce that 2 songs from 'Painting the Silence Vol.1' made the WEXT end of year countdown!! I want to thank Chris Wienk, Andy Gregory and the staff for being so supportive of my music over the years. 

You can check out the entire list and maybe find some new favorite songs or artists. I…

The CD's are here!! Pre-order today : ) 

Howdy

So I love getting surprised. When I ordered the CD's the duplicator told me they wouldn't be shipped until at least the 8th. Guess what? They showed up today!!! YAY!!!!

So if you ordered one, it will be on it's way this week! How exciting!! If you haven't well, why not? Go get it!

Vinyl Pre-orders are still going. I've never made a record before and there are a few things I learned about the process. First, you have to mix and 'master' it slightly differently than for a CD or download. This took…

Pre-Order the new Album Today!!! 

Howdy

Whew it's been a crazy few weeks. Also it's finally fall-like here in NY after 75 degrees up until 2 days ago. Weird how fast it all changes....

The album is done. Everything you've heard is crap!!! 

Weird headline.

So yes! The album is FINISHED!!! Woo Hoo! Fist bump! Moondance!!!

It's been quite the journey this time, but well worth the wait in my opinion. This one is pretty damn good.

Oddly enough this is the longest time between records and also most challenging release I've done for me personally. And yet--it's my shortest album! Ha. Part of that is due to the fact that as I've been saying this is Volume 1 with more to come (soon I pormise) and part of that is that I have always wanted to make a…

Seasons. Vinyl. Perfection. 

Howdy.

If you live in the Northeast it's been HOT!!!  (I guess even if you don't live in the northeast it's been hot here...)

93 yesterday. Whew. Part of me wants to complain cause, well, 93 is hot no matter what. Another part of me has tried to spend as much time outside as possible since it IS the end of September and cooler weather is coming soon. I personally don't mind it so much unless its humid. I hate humidity. Yesterday was humid. So you see my conflict haha.

Humidity makes me sluggish. I just…

Car Accident, Summer, Life, Music 

I've been away too long. Damn time flies.

So I had a car accident about a month ago. My barely 1 year old Jeep got totaled. Someone turned left in front of me at a green light at an intersection. I drive like an old lady thankfully so I might have been going 35 before I saw the car appear in front of me. Funny. Cars we are used to seeing coming at us in the opposite lane suddenly seem HUGE when they unexpectedly jump right in front of you. And it's not like you think from TV and movies. The impact was…

Humming along. New Songs. Radio 



Howdy.

Psst.... c'mere.  Closer.  CLOSER  I gots a secret

I HAVE SONGS DONE I HAVE SONGS DONE I HAVE SONGS DONE!!!

Shh.   It's a secret. Remember?  

Ok so, guess writing in all caps at the beginning of a public blog isn't exactly the best way to keep a secret. So screw it. It's NOT a secret. Hey- I have songs. A funny thing happened to me in the last few weeks. Know all those songs I talked about in the last couple entries? NO? Well, go read them. Scroll.  I'll be here. Anyway-I actually turned shit on, turned it up, made things move, played a couple things. Typed lyrics. Sang. Mixed.  And you know what? A lot of those songs were WAY closer to being finished than I had originally thought. Funny how we can fool ourselves into thinking things. That aren't really true. I've been telling myself for oh I don't know--almost 6 years, that I was NOWHERE near finished. That I'd wasted all this time. All. This. Time.  I'm happy to say...WRONG!!!!

October Update 



There's an inspiring post title.  October update. You're on the edge of your seat. Probably breathing heavy. Heart rate is up. Maybe breaking out in a sweat. "This, you think, THIS is what I've been waiting for! The October Update!!!"

Man time gets away from us sometimes. Today is 70 ish but rainy. The leaves are coming down with a vengeance. Tomorrow is only supposed to be in the 40's and then, well it's November. Summer was awesome but went too fast. But-- this weather is always great for locking myself away and working on music. So hey, let's talk about that.

I have 27---27! songs in 'almost done' form.  That's a lot. That's not all though. I have been recording song ideas/sketches into my phone for the past couple of years too. There are over 150 MORE ideas there. Kinda makes me wonder why I haven't put out 17 albums. Then again, none of them are all the way finished either so...there's that.

I took a ride today and listened to the 27 that are the most 'done'. For the past couple of weeks I have been writing lyrics and once that is done (that always comes last for me) all that's really left is singing.  It's that close.  It's that close. On the ride I also realized that 4-5 of these really are done. I don't know why I thought I had so much left to do with a few of them. Sometimes distance is needed I guess. Space. Time away to make you realize what you have. Or just to hear with fresh ears.

The Long and Winding Road 

Cheesy to use a Beatles title? Maybe. But hey- I'm writing something. It's been awhile. Way too long actually. I'm typing and really realizing how long it's been. 6 years since I've done-well anything here. So what the hell happened?

I guess if I go back it's just--life. Life happens. I released 2 records 6  months apart in 2009/2010. Toured. Bought a house. Got 3 new dogs. One dog passed away. Still have 6 somehow. How does that even happen? Got into the fitness business. Opened a gym. Closed this year in…Read more
