We Are In This Together
The season is turning to Spring, and usually the excitement of warmer longer days, and nature sprouting with life, is hard to contain in Seattle. But this year it feels like just another Winter day as I write this. It has never been more apparent that we are all connected. That we are all here together sharing this planet. I suppose that is good news, but my heart aches for my friends, or anyone that has lost a loved one, a job, or their spirit due to the recent turn of events. I want to help everyone, and yet I can only help a few; by keeping my piano lessons going over FaceTime, checking in with the people I love, sending texts and messages to folks, and the strangest thing- by staying away for others.
I also find myself wanting everyone to get along (I'm a middle kid). And though it's quieter on the street, the sound of discord is like a steady hum, even when the tv and all my devices are powered down. As leaders struggle to figure things out, and everyone is scrambling to keep their footing, I feel so grateful for every positive spirit working on this frightening situation, from the front lines to unknown volunteer.
As a musician and songwriter, I am so grateful that I can offer you music. I have been writing songs for many years now, and singing my entire life. I am always drawn to write about hope, or at least a glimmer of it. So here is a playlist of some of my songs on Spotify.
Perhaps you'll find something that makes you feel better, and less isolated, if and when you find yourself in that space in the coming weeks.
I am also on all other streaming services and you can download on this website as well.
Stay strong and know that there will be a day when it truly feels like Spring again.

Thank you to everyone that braved the rapids on the rainiest night in a decade and joined us at The Royal Room. Thank you to everyone that gave their time and energy to the show,whether it was through performing, donating or volunteering. To the folks at King 5 TV that supported and had me on the air to talk about the show, to KSER FM for donating their signed guitar we raffled, and Mike McReady of Pearl Jam for signing it!, Warm 106.9 for your support, and Northwest Harvest and your volunteers for all the work you do! To the Royal Room for donating a portion of the Special Snow Globe Cocktail! All of the love and support made the evening a lovely night of music and giving. The energy we created is still reverberating as I type this, to people in need on this Winter day. Remember that good things are happening even when the news seems to tell us otherwise.
