Sunday September 24th at MVFAF : Downbeat 1 pm!

Every day is a new day, a new opportunity to make someone smile, to learn something new! 

I've been on a new adventure this past week, working hard to finance my next album project, and am very excited to be singing at The Mill Valley Fall Arts Festival this weekend! 

We hit the downbeat on Sunday. September 24th at 1:00 pm at the Old Mill Park Amphitheatre, just behind the library, which is a mini version of the McHenry library at UC Santa Cruz...but I digress.  

I've been looking forward to this gig for quite some time, because if you know me at all, you know that redwood trees are my church, and this is right smack in the middle of a redwood grove. 

Hope to see you!

Upcoming Shows September/October

Hey Everybody! 

Sending another upcoming show update as I get into my new routine and continue cleaning up the online and offline. 

Each of us has a pace and a purpose. Sometimes that purpose is to just "be," and that is OK by me. 

Hope this day finds you in good spirits. Sending love your way.

Hello All, 

We have been saddened and stunned by the recent wildfires in Maui. You may have already seen the links to animal rescues and the Maui Community Foundation I shared via facebook, sharing some information here as well.

Thanks to Questlove for sharing on facebook. I'm sure he has a much wider reach than I do, but you never know who's reading what these days, so I figured I would share here.

It's a Personal Journey

 Hello Again, 

Today marks a year since my mother's passing from this earth. I choose to hold the decades of memories in their complete spectrum of light and dark, good and bad, sorrow and joy. Today, I will light a candle to her remembrance and do my best to live the rest of my life as fully and completely as is possible. I will follow my bliss and honor my soul's desire to give my natural born gifts and acquired skills to their highest purpose! I will watch the flowers bloom, taste the food and thank our pollinators in the process. 

I wish the same for you. 



That said, Saturday, my friends Livin' Like Kings and I will be playing music for you from 4 - 8 at The Saloon in North Beach. It's low key, so come as you are, and please be kind to yourself and those around you.

Sinead O'Connor 1966 - 2023

Upon hearing that Sinead O'Connor passed yesterday. I posted on my Facebook page:

I don't have the time or ability at this moment to articulate every emotion that I am feeling. I do know that losing a child is something that no parent should experience, as it is an inconsolable loss. 
Grief is something we learn to live with by choosing to experience the joy for ourselves as well as those we lose. 

May her soul find peace. May we all find peace, love and joy in this life on earth.
