Wow… I can’t believe it’s been a year since I released my first record Introspection. It’s strange. I’ve done lots of great gigs since then and so much has changed internally that it gets me excited about my next project. I’m always writing but somehow I’ve found another level of inspiration. It’s so important to be real with yourself. Music and life are like a perfect marriage, they are inextricably linked. I used to laugh at people who wrote songs whenever they went through something, thinking that it was just their way of getting therapy for free, but actually, it’s really not like that. Not always. In order to truely know what we feel, sometimes we just have to open our mouths and speak it out. I find myself drawn to my harp and my piano more and more. They seem to know what I’m feeling and help me say it. I hope that my next record will really speak. I hope that you are all-ears.

One of my new songs has got me singing from some place that I didn’t even know existed. It’s a love song, I don’t really write them, but this one just poured out. When I sing it, it makes sense and it feels right, but when I hear it back, it’s as though it were written by some other woman, completely in love. It’s funny what comes out when you put pen to paper. Sometimes I have no idea what I’m going to write until it’s just there. Fantastic, and scary. Seeing my heart on paper is so strange but I my songs are for sharing, I can’t stop doing that.
