I am so inspired whilst writing this new music, and I could not do it without the talent of Mike Mitchell. Writing songs with this guy just makes songwriting so easy, so fun, and I have never gelled with another songwriter as I do with him. It is magic. I can not wait to share our new songs with you, but wait we must!
These songs are mostly about growing as a single woman, and learning from the mistakes I have made with most of the men in my past. I thank you all, all of my lovers, ex boyfriends, ex husband, I thank you for breaking my heart, or treating me like shit, or putting me down, for emotionally abusing me, for making me second guess myself. It may seem odd to thank people for these feelings, but I would not be even close to the woman I am today had these men not been in my life. You have taught me what I deserve, and what I will never accept again.
I found true love a couple of times, but those loves were taken from me, by death, and by distance. You guys I thank for the happy love songs I have written.
I don't know if I will find love again, I am defined now and I am whole. It is strange how I have evolved. I have my children, my dogs, my music, my animal activism, as well as my teaching....I am so happy, and writing these songs has been therapeutic.
This new album/EP is about atonement for me, to self correct my actions so I don't make the same mistakes again. And so I will be giving this new body of work the title "Atonement"
With all of this said I am attaching my video "Enticement" which was up for Grammy consideration and that Mike played and arranged all the instruments on. He is a musical legend and I love him to bits. Thank you Mike for being in my life, and taking on this project with me. Skies the limit baby! Thank you to Don Lichterman (my manager) for the beautiful video xxx A little clip from my video "Enticement" This song is about my #soulmate and #truelove and #takingrisks #singersongwriter #recordingartist #love #music #songwriter #singer #vocalist #musicvideo #sunsetrecords #indielabel #singlemom #goals #dreams #livingmydream #inspired #workhard #create #inspire
