Gilding the Lily and Loving It

PM video screenshotPre-order for my new album, Atmospheric Epic, now on PledgeMusic!

Pink video 1Riding the wave of a “viral” post on Facebook, I’m encouraged by the 33,000 strangers who watched my video. If only I could lead them to my new album! I rely on you, my true fans, to help me get the word out. Your pre-order makes all the difference.

Where am I exactly? After chasing jazz ghosts in NYC, I flew to Nashville to begin recording with a stellar cast of jazz musicians who are very much alive and kicking. Under the helm of trusted friend and producer, Daniel Dennis at Prime Cut Studio (Peace or Drama), we carved our way through these new songs. “Your sound has matured,” he said. I agree.

Back in San Francisco, I recorded the amazing Steven Strauss on ukulele and am still working out some of the vocal parts. Though there is plenty left to do, this cross-country endeavor is well underway – my own American epic poem. And I cannot wait for you to hear it!

goldcriesandsilverdustsThis PledgeMusic launch allows me to bring it to you first. All pledgers receive a digital download of the new album (once released) and the AccessPass – updates about the album’s progress, personal song demos, videos and more. You can also buy special items, like a signed copy of the CD, a spot for your name in the liner notes, even fine artwork from my Peace or Drama project signed/numbered by Hilary Williams.

Did I mention Hilary Williams has agreed to do the cover art for the new album? Whaaaat? Ack, I am so excited!!! Can you tell?

Pre-order creates an early buzz and increases shares about my album. Because of you, I get to bring this new music to life. Thank you for being my world!



Community Rocks – Love in the company of friends and strangers

rock lottoTonight I perform with two special ladies who were strangers to me only a couple of weeks ago. I entered the “Rock Lotto” just for fun – a musicians’ lottery where eight bands are formed by drawing names out of a hat. Our assignment: to come up with 10 minutes of original material to perform live.

In addition to working the old noodle, I’ve made two new friends and am inspired by their passion and devotion. Clara Bellino and Omi Bahari both have such positive energy – so much so that we started dancing and singing about bluebirds in the sky! Here’s a verse from our new bluebird song:

We are The Blossom Suite

Nest in the tree of life
Have gratitude for sunshine
Be inspired by the light
Dance with the colors in the sky

Excited for tonight (details here if you’re in San Francisco). I’m also excited to fly to Nashville next month to begin recording a new album at Prime Cut Studio. Yes, it’s true. Pinch me, please! Looking forward to working with old friends and welcoming new strangers – in the form of brilliant Nashville players – to add their talents to my songs.

Feeling so much love in community right now, which is hard for an introvert like me. Sometimes I have to force myself to share. Alone time has its merits, of course, but I’m always amazed at what comes from a beautiful collaboration. Makes me feel lighter. And it’s fun!

IMG_0143 (1)So I invite you to get yourself out there. Make a new friend today and see what blooms! Drop me a line and let me know who inspires you. I’m doing a happy dance right now just thinking about friends I hold dear and friends I’ve yet to meet. Will you join me?
