Hope your new year is off to a great start! The Chinese New Year, The Year of the Horse is soon upon us so we still have another great beginning coming soon!  2013 in reflection was a year of great contrasts and many emotions for me, from the passing of my mother-in-law, recovering from colon cancer surgery and beating cancer!!, recording and releasing a brand new album, playing so many wonderful gigs with the love of my life Alice Fraser, and good friend Huggybear Leonard and for the best band in the world with Adam Popowitz, Elliot Polsky and Scott Tucker , teaching at the college to so many lovely students who enrich my life and meeting and cherishing such good friends. I am grateful to be alive and to have had so many rich experiences this last year. I wish you all much joy, love, good health and meaningful purpose in your lives in 2014. Here's to a great year ahead!

Conventus Online Again!


Hey there please enjoy the Conventus video while you can, I am disputing the third party thing as NASA has this intro royalty free. We'll see what happens. :)

Decoda lyric site interviewed me and I have 6 short interviews about the songs from the new album. The first one is for Lightning Strikes Twice. When you scroll the lyrics click on the highlighted green lyric and a video pops up with my explanation. Very cool idea for folks who like to understand the lyrics of the songs.

I Found You Lyric Video

I’ve Found You

I don’t need wishes

‘Cause all of my dreams have come true

No I don’t need anything

Now that I have found you


In the dark and the night

In the day and the light I’ve found you

And the ring on my finger will stay forever and always


I don’t need riches

For you are the jewel I need

Give me you hand

And I’ll take you

Wherever this road may lead

BACK STORY
This was a song I had written about 30 years ago for a friend's wedding and I was her maid of honour. As I was getting married last year I went digging through old songs and archives, thinking about the music to use for our wedding and stumbled upon I Found You. The song seemed timeless and fitting and so I decided to record it on Conventus TEOTH. The harmony vocal was a breeze to do which is a rarity for me but as the song had been percolating so long it was easy and it stood out for me. Harmonies are not my forte I either get them right away or I have to work very hard until I do. I am always in awe of the vocalists who can just sit down and do it effortlessly. I hope you enjoy the wedding song.
