WELCOME

HELLO DEAR! IT’S WONDERFUL TO SEE YOU HERE. I’D LOVE TO SHOW YOU AROUND…

WHERE ARE WE?

I love to create layers of story and symbolism in song, and to extend my stories toward you like a prismatic tether between our two souls.

Or, you may experience them as a conduit to anyone who fascinates you…

I find the endeavor for soul-to-soul connection like a sort of three-dimensional maze—a careful uncovering of the unique pathways and modalities that connect each of us.

If every path or layer reflects a facet of our individual brilliance, each of us may find our unique connection to another upon any possible plane. Maybe harmony or melody. Maybe a single turn of phrase, or an uninhibited intake of breath. Maybe in an overarching storyline.

I send out strands in every place I can imagine. 

I can’t wait to see which one finds you…

ARTIFICE

I’m always searching for new stories to bring to life in song, so I gave myself the gift of a homespun inspiration wellspring with “Artifice.” It’s a beautiful experiment in finding connection, and a joyful exploration of the human condition. I consider it a soul-growing practice, like meditation or prayer.

Specifically, “Artifice” is conversation with my fellow artists. Together, we examine the mysteries of our own experiences—our muses and fears, our gifts and foibles, and the secret magic we’ve discovered in our unique creative processes. I find it simply precious.

If you love what you’ve found in my songs, I imagine you’ll find some wonder here, as well.

WANT TO DIG DEEPER?

Language is such a generous muse. I commune with her as often as possible—with or without music…

I often find that writing without musical boundaries lets me process “out loud,” so when it comes time to condense new stories into songs, I know where to find the most potent magic. I write as creative exercise—to take you behind-the-scenes, to let you into my latest musings and mullings, to document artful explorations, to play.

And speaking of play…where else would I go but to prose to weave a perfect nest for my songs? How else would I build out the worlds I’m imagining? If you want to be sure you’re discovering every treasure I’ve tucked within the songs, or to zoom out for a bird’s eye view, there’s no better place than the blog to look for clues…

DON'T FORGET YOUR WELCOME BASKET!

To welcome you properly, I’ve built a LOVELY virtual gift basket for just for you. It has all of my favorite goodies…

Once it arrives in your inbox, don’t forget to reach out and tell me about yourself. I’m excited to meet you!

“…So artfully presented that you’re not sure if you want to eat it or put it in the Louvre.”
