We are working on the final mixes for the upcoming album release. What a YEAR!
As I reflect on the songs I've written in 2015, and how far we've come, I'm just so grateful. Thanks for listening, for supporting live, local music, and for purchasing CD's and tracks online to support songwriters like myself.
The upcoming CD, "Strand (-ed)", definitely has water & seafaring themes, as well as reflections on my journey. Reminds me of a favorite e.e. cummings poem:
"maggie and millie and molly and may went down to the beach (to play one day)
and maggie discovered a shell that sang so sweetly
she couldn't remember her troubles,and
millie befriended a stranded star
who's rays five languid fingers were; and molly was chased by a horrible thing
which raced sideways while blowing bubbles:and may came home with a smooth round stone
as small as a world and as large as alone.
For whatever we lose (like a you or a me) it's always ourselves we find in the sea.”
E. E. Cummings
