And here’s local legend Dennis McGregor and Benji Nagel spreading some home grown tunes right in front of Benji & Caris’s farmstand!
Here’s a little song that I recorded back in 2014 for “Sometimes Love” that has been tapping me on the shoulder lately. I looked outside my window and the light was so beautiful. The golden hour. I rushed outside and made this video.
This was my set up for the FB Livestream concert I did on my almost birthday! You can watch it here.
This girl is always ready for adventure!
I hope you are getting outside and taking good care and doing things that lift your spirits. I know it sounds simple, but singing always makes me feel better, so I’ll just keep doing that no matter what. Please know that you are on my mind and in my walking prayers. As always, I love hearing from you, so holler at me if you feel moved to do so. Thank you for walking alongside me on my musical journey! With much love and gratitude from your fan,
