THE LATEST "Word from amber" archive

January 28, 2021 

Thank you for all the support over this past year. Because of you – your orders, music streams, song commissions and generous tips, I continue to create music. New ways of being are on the horizon. May we proceed into the Great Mystery of 2021 in grace. And may we reach beyond the great divide, communicating in civility and respect with each other. 

What I love about music – it transcends the veils of separation. When we partake in music together, we share in the same vibration of melody and rhythm, and for a moment, all the babble of the world subsides and we are one. 

In February 2020, I wrote “How We Spend Our Time” as I reflected on the state of things. I will leave you with a portion of the lyrics: 

Love or war, the clock ticks on 
A gift or curse unwinds, 
Rage or joy, the choice is ours 
How we spend our time 
How we spend our time 

May we choose love. 

Blessings and light to you,

Amidst cording-off dance sections and caution-taping-off the "stage" areas to adhere to CDC guidelines, it is a PURE gift to perform LIVE again. THANK YOU to all who attend, and THANK YOU to those who can not come out, yet support my music in so many other ways. 

For those of you who aren't able to attend the shows, I want to share a snippet from my band's Monterey Court show last month. Watch Good Day to Be Alive HERE

And speaking of a "Good Day to Be Alive", read my blog about the inspiration for this song HERE. Hmm..gratitude and veteran stories - feels like November holiday season to me! 

I will leave you with words from my "Good Day to Be Alive" song - may we be "grateful for the day, each song we sing, if we are still here, we've got love to bring...bring it on." 

My gratitude, peace and love to you,

I am SO EXCITED to be performing LIVE again. Thank you to all who have supported my music through these past months. 

My band and I have been rehearsing outdoors in triple digit heat to prepare for our Monterey Court show on October 9th. It is SO worth it. We'll be debuting the songs off of the new album. Join us if you'd like! 

I've got a NEW LYRIC VIDEO out for Roots Run Deep with "bonus footage" of my bandmates working on the song and also of me during the photoshoot for the album. 

In case you missed it, here's my interview with song featuring the new album: KXCI 91.3FM's Broad Perspectives Show HERE . 

Thank you for tuning in via satellite and visiting my page. Onward we go. 

Blessings, love and peace to you,

It's been a long hiatus from live performance. As I get my plexiglass rig ready and "woodshed" late into the evenings (aka "rehearse"), I am BEYOND EXCITED to announce I'm returning to WISDOM'S ¡DOS! Sunday, September 6th from 11a-2p on the patio. MORE SHOWS are being added to the calendar on my SHOWS tab.

THANK YOU TO ALL who have generously contributed to my music-making and living throughout the last six months, and to all who continue to order, download and stream Roots Run Deep. YOU have helped keep the music alive during these times of challenge.  

I am overwhelmed with gratitude. May we proceed with kindness, compassion, regard and respect for each other, and may we work TOGETHER to heal. 

Blessings and peace to you,

Read more about it, download, and/or order a CD through my website here: ROOTS RUN DEEP 

This particular album has been a lifetime in the making. If you listen in its entirety, it will take you on a journey. I’d love if you’d venture with me through the music. In the upcoming weeks, I will share inspiration behind the songs and snippets from our recording sessions. 

Thank you for supporting my music. Without you, I couldn’t have made this album. 

With profound gratitude,
