Oct/Nov Newsy Newsletter
Greetings, friends and fellow music lovers!
I can’t believe it’s already the middle of October! We are savoring these golden days of autumn here in Sisters, grateful for clear skies and warm afternoons. I know the chill is right around the corner, so it makes every warm flip-flop day feel like a miracle. 🙂
SO many wonderful things have happened since my last newsletter, and I owe heaps of gratitude to many fine folks, including…Tom & Norene, Suttle Lodge, James Casto and the Home By Dark family, Monica Hayes and all magical humans with the Oregon Symphony Lullaby Project, Mark & Jeanne, Sisters Folk Festival and all the wonderful new and old friends at song camp.
It has been so fun launching my new album “Love Is Onto You” into the world! It is available now everywhere you stream or download music, and if you prefer to listen to a CD, you can order one from me directly here.
And here is a lovely article about my new album by our local paper, The Nugget News!

I want to share a song from our Oregon Symphony Lullaby Project Community Concert! It was one of the most beautiful, soul-filling afternoons of music I’ve ever been a part of! We also had a lovely recording session last month in Portland, and the album will be coming out soon. I will keep you posted!
Also I made a few videos to go along with the release of my new album! If you haven’t already done so, will you subscribe to my YouTube channel here? It’s free and it helps me get more visibility when people subscribe!
Here is the lyric video for my first single “Love Keeps The Flame”…
And the lyric video for my second single “The Speed Of Lonely”…
And finally a wonderful video of my third and final single “Keep The Change” created by Jon Meyer…

Love this Home By Dark crew in Georgia! We had two AMAZING evenings together in Alpharetta and I’m still floating in the clouds!
I think this tree is singing!
This little rascal still likes napping in the dirt even though I bought her a fancy elevated bed for outside, ha!! Her cuteness absolves all shenanigans…
