Life is a lot some days. Between 4 kids, navigating a blended family, school/activity schedules, jobs, and keeping up with family and friends, making time for myself is last on the list.
I heard of this thing called Patreon, and I checked it out and signed up to follow some local folks whose music I enjoy. I liked the idea of having exclusive stuff sent right to me because I’m not super into social media and actually find it overwhelming at times (I spend maybe 20 minutes a day with it).
I never thought I’d be someone anyone would consider following on Patreon (who am I to think anyone would sign up for a monthly subscription to have more access to my musical stylings?). But honestly over the past several months, I talked it over with some friends, and they helped me realize a few things:
1. I don’t really have many PLACES to play MY music.
2. I don’t really have much TIME to play MY music.
3. I don’t really have much CONFIDENCE to play MY music anymore.
Patreon would essentially allow me to space to engage creatively every month on my time, around the kids’ needs and the day job, and hold on to a part of me that I don’t want to lose and would like to build up, not tear down. It would be healing to share more in a safe space with those of you generous enough to help support my creative passion and also help toward the cost of making some new recordings. It’s also collaborative so you can share with me what you’d like to see ♥️

My deepest thanks to all of you who have supported me in so many ways over the years.  xo

Another album?

When I think about the idea of recording again, I’m torn. There’s something weirdly comforting about knowing I have the songs outside of myself. Like going through a box of photographs. They’re memories. So that’s the pull that brings me back to the idea of recording… I just really hate the process. It brings out every negative, self-critical, perfectionistic trait I HATE; the parts of me for which I have little self-compassion. And in the ever-consuming, narcissistic, attention-seeking culture in which we live, why should my voice matter.

I constantly question if my songs are worthy. Then I think about how fiercely I connect to certain music, and I wonder if the songwriters of some of my favorite songs also ever grappled with this. What even makes a song worthy of sharing?
