Having written and co-written a number of songs in the past 15 years, I have spent this past year recording eight songs for an album titled ‘What Love Demands’
I am also re-releasing four original songs I recorded with HipCity Cruz in 2008 on the same album
Big thanks to my former bandmates Jewl Sandoval, & Bruce and Lynnette Mello. Jewl Sandoval is currently with Broken Shades, Lynnette is currently part of a music duo called Villanelle, and Bruce has recorded an original solo piano CD, and has an album in the works.
I have changed so much personally as a result of the writing, producing, and publishing process that I feel like the album is only a snapshot of what I have gained. I am thankful for having reached this milestone as a singer-songwriter and could not have done it without continuing support of family and friends over the years. I hope that the songs speak for themselves, that they have a reach further than I can imagine, and may be enjoyed for years to come.
Somehow, the miraculous process of carrying and giving birth to my son, James happened simultaneously along with this project. I hear it is not uncommon for a soon-to-be parent to check a few things off their bucket list before their first child comes along. I also felt like creating an album was like being pregnant because of how long-term the project turned out to be; so I guess I am a doubly proud mama this year.
My original music will be available in CD form at my shows and will be available for digital purchase via my music page. It will also be made available through other popular online music distributors and streaming services.
Lyrics are posted on my website and are also printed in a booklet if you purchase the physical CD.
Upcoming shows will be posted through my facebook site. Hope to see you out there ’cause a recorded version is nice to listen to, but the live version has an element of surprise, plus never-heard before songs have been known to show up on the setlist. Stay tuned.
My purpose for this blog is to write about music and culture, artists to look out for in all genres, and personal experiences in being a songwriter and performer
