Dreaming up a future filled to the brim with songs and a constant flow of sharing them seems easy to do. It takes a little imagination and a lot of persistence. Having always taken life in small but hopeful steps, it is usually time that sees dreams like these through for me. I discovered the wonderful world of song writing about five years ago. It was then I realized that often, the only way I am able to fully and honestly release the going-ons in my brain is on the open ended path of a song where the possibilities are endless. Over the past two years of both being on the constant go and staying very still, I have taken my songs by their ropes and steered them to a comfortable place in my head. I am ready and able to share them with more ears and minds. I recorded one nine-song album in 2009 after a long year of touring and lending harmonies to my friend Alela Diane. Since then, I have been creating and experimenting with new sounds and melodies. I feel ready for the leap into this wide space of possibility. My goal is to take this handful of songs, both new and old, and create a means in which others can listen to and be a part of my journey. I would like to go into the studio and make a full length record that emanates the journeys i've taken in a way that others can relate to and travel along with. Because the society that most of us live in these days is tightly woven with the necessity of the dollar bill, I am asking for your help. Any amount of donation at all will be tremendously appreciated.
