Get out of Town!

As of the beginning of this year, I hadn’t taken a vacation that wasn’t revolved around songwriting, touring, or music in some way in 10 years.  What?? You say. Crazy.  I could not justify it.  I thought if I was going to travel, it had to be music related.  I’m a musician. I just can’t go on vacation just for fun.  What a crock.   I have gotten over it this year.  Life is too short not to spend [...]

When in doubt, keep on doing what you love

Ahh….dreams.  We all have them.  And you if you don’t….liar! I think of dreams as the road in front of life.  It shows us where to go.

My producer and I have been figuring out how to release and when to release originals.  It has been almost four years since I’ve released any originals.  It doesn’t seem that long, but I can hardly believe it.

This time it’s a [...]

Singing Takes Courage to Let Go

I have a vocal teaching studio in Los Angeles with about 10 students.  It is incredibly rewarding to teach them and see them grow.  I had one student recently who was really struggling with tension.  When singing, she would tighten up usually in the face or throat to try to have more control over her voice, then berate herself for being tight.  That is an awful cycle.  So I wrote her this long email and thought I’d share it with [...]
