Wow- I love being a "creative," as people who create as a profession are collectively called- haha now THAT is not really creative, is it? Anyway, it is a blast. It is stressful too- you may be surprised! All of that vulnerability and digging deep and exposure. And also it is rewarding! The very cool thing is that I have a ton of material that is going to come out over the next six months, and more into 2018!! Visions, dreams and strategies are spilling out along with some great songs! I feel like a peony with soooo many buds ready to pop!
Here's the deal: I have been so jazzed about our song "Moonlight" and had hoped to have it out by now. We had delays in production so release will be sometime in September. It will be all the better for it! Such a pretty and unusual song! In light of this, I have chosen to bump up the release of the songs Aaron Zinsmeister (producer) and I have been working on for the past year to late July. So hell yeah, looks like I have a CD coming out in about month! It is going to be called "Chrysalis." The process of writing and recording these songs has been transformative for me. The songs contain a mix of about a billion musical influences from the past 50 years, each song unique (thanks again to Aaron's masterful production and patience!), in the end integrating into a sound that I can own as a writer and recording artist. Sooooo, TRANSFORMATION, INTEGRATION, CHANGE, TIME = "CHRYSALIS." Thanks to friends and text threads that helped me come up with that one! It takes a village...🐛🦋💚
I am super excited about finally getting this music out in a CD! I will continue to share more info over the next month regarding the release and how you can access it! I am madly ironing out the nuts and bolts of design, manufacturing and release this week. Remember I said there were parts of being a creative that were stressful? Well this is a biggie!
In the meantime, don't forget the peonies! It is summer! We need to relish every moment!
