Hello and welcome to those who have arrived here! I dread this "toot your own horn" stuff, but having a website and doing social media is de rigueur these days so that's life. There's a cool side to social media when you get tens of thousands of views just singing to a stuffed duck, not just ANY duck, but the fabulous Bangor PD mascot!! What a hoot!

And here's the dreaded "horn tooting" --sorry, I need to look a tiny bit relevant!

Gigs: With my partner Diana Quinn aka  Snarky Sisterz - we have a bunch of gigs in Virginia coming up this fall. Come see us! 

Songs, etc: This is my newest song called "The Kids Ain't Alright" which was picked up by Rehegoo Music for distribution, and the song landed on Airplay Today's top 100 College/Indie list from July through September, 2018.  

I have been SO lucky to be a guest on Northern Spirit Radio in Wisconsin, the show called Song of the Soul. with host Mark Judkins Helpsmeet. His program on Northern Spirit Radio takes a look at musical artists and their songs and songs that speak to them: "Music has the ability to proclaim the soul's language beyond what mere words can speak." What a nice experience, and what a nice man. Please take a listen to the show and comment on the website below if you like it! (ha ha notice i did NOT say to comment if you don't!!)

I'm also happy to announce that "My Daily Bread" was selected for RAWA's Second Annual Song for Social Change Songwriting Competition as one of the eight runners-up in the contest.  Very grateful and thankful. Other updates: "I Know You" received an honorable mention for the Mid-Atlantic Song Contest. So I thought I should mention that I am honored! :-)  Also, getting airplay for "I Know You," "Just a Little Thing" and "Here I Am" on KCEGcountry.com, which is cool. And Songshooter.com will be featuring "White Girl Blues."  And...Diana Quinn and I (aka Snarky Sisterz) just released our new CD via CDBaby. Fun times!

 Namaste, y'all. Keep checking back for more news, gigs and songs! And remember, do what ya gotta do to say what ya gotta say!!
