My first post

Well, HOWDY to all who are taking a look at my new website! Thank you for dropping by and checking it out. Uh, I never did a blog before, so I’m not exactly sure what to say here. I guess I should say something about the new CD I’ve released…

It took me about 15 years to write this album. The first two years I wrote kind of adamantly, and then played it for a couple of people. They didn’t like it! Boo hoo. That cooled my jets. I did play it for one very good friend who said, “You just aren’t done. Keep going…” Her words echoed in my head for several years while I stopped playing music altogether and went back to college to study art. Then, back around 2009, I started playing out again. Onstage one night, I played a couple of fairy tale songs from the original project, reflecting out loud that I’d never finished it. A woman came up to me and said, “You should finish that fairy tale project!” It turned out she was a therapist. That was inspiring to me, and after a while I started researching and writing songs again. I am so happy to be able to put this work out, as it really has meant a lot to me on a very very deep level.
