Wow! What a crazy week of mass media and wild weather!

Last week was intense. Some was in a great way, and some was in a challenging way. I talked and performed on live TV on WJBK Detroit’s channel 2 morning show (see below), a news story about my work was published in Gannett’s Livingston Daily and Detroit Free Press, and we celebrated both my daughters’ [...]

Shades of blue and gratitude

I feel incredibly honored that my song “Let It Fall” was chosen for a performance recently on the TV show “Dance Moms.” Daviana’s beautiful “Shades of Blue” aired the week before Christmas. Here’s the video: I’m a little bit at a loss for words about this, which is rare for me. It’s one thing when [...]

Why musicians are cool

It’s no secret that people generally think musicians and singers are “cool,” especially young people. This perception has always fascinated me. For me, at least, it’s just my “thing.” Some people are naturally good at math, or at business or decorating, while others have a propensity toward being a conscientious mother or a skilled athlete. [...]

Free fallin’ west to California

What an incredible time I had in Ventura recently at the Durango Film TV Showcase! My husband Chris and I flew out from Detroit and enjoyed every minute of our time in California. The days consisted of pitching and feedback sessions with music supervisors, and the nights were filled with live performances. The other artists [...]

Yes, Detroit!

This year I’ve done some traveling for performances and music business. I’ve been surprised about the negative reactions when people have asked where I’m from, and I’ve said “near Detroit.” No, I don’t live in the city of Detroit, but I was born there, and my family on both sides has a history in Detroit. [...]

Finalist in songwriting contest!

Sometimes you just gotta throw it out there and see what sticks. And the powers that be at the Song of the Year songwriting contest liked my song “Extra Day” enough to make it the top finalist, one away from the winner, in the pop category. It’s nice to receive formal recognition from people in [...]

Not bad, 2015!

As this year comes to a close, my mind goes into reflection mode. This past year of 2015 was a really nice one for me as far as my music goes. Even with the usual obstacles of time, money and energy, I still managed to write, record and release another collection of songs called “Will.“ [...]

Recent placements

What a great few months it’s been! I was thrilled that a talented little girl named JoJo did a beautiful dance routine to my song “Epiphany“ on the popular Lifetime TV show “Dance Moms.” This episode premiered over the summer, and a lot of new people all over the country have been discovering this heartfelt, [...]

Song 9 – I’m Not Ready Yet

By far the most personal and emotional song on my CD, Will, is the album’s last song. A few of my fellow parents have told me that “I’m Not Ready Yet” brought tears to their eyes. Writing and singing this song got me a little weepy nearly every time I worked on it. I cried [...]
