Orpheous went into the underworld with a wink, knowing that not even Death is immune to a good tune. Remember this: when life starts to feel like an endless string of to do lists all you have to do is press play
A love song revives the butterflies in your stomach long after you thought they were gone for good.
An anthem gives you the courage to walk into your bosses office to ask for a raise.
The blues are there for you (and they don't judge when you finish a bottle of wine on your own)
Life is a kaleidoscope of the gruesome and the glorious and music is my method of preserving the preciousness of it all.
My philosophy is:
*Simple is better. No fancy autotune here! Most of the songs are built around the lyrics, vocals, and guitar.
*If you’re smart enough to be here, you’re smart enough to get the chorus the first couple of times.
*Gimiks are cheap (and I'd look dumb in a bubble dress anyway)
There is magic in the maddness of it all, these songs will show you where to find it.
Who am I? you ask. I'm a woman with a calling. ( I know, like you haven't heard that before)
I wrote my first song at five years old and then spent the next twenty actually trying to find ANYTHING ELSE to be good at. Ideally, something that came with a "here is how to make a living" check list. Finally it occured to me after walking back to a day job I was terrible at after getting my cards read that I had a choice between two realities. In one, I would never really be successful on my own terms, I would continue to allow other people to dictate what was or was not possible. In the other nothing would be guarunteed but everything would be possible.
Whether you're standing at your own cross road or already living the dream these songs belong to anyone craving the courage to become the person they know they SHOULD be. They will patch you up when your heart gets broken.They will keep you company when you feel like you're the only one. Most importantly, though, they will remind you what it feels like to be alive and wild and making your own rules.
