I have not written in a while and feel like a total slacker!
We had some spring like weather about a week ago that was epic! People were wandering in the streets and drinking in the unusual warm February sunshine. However, this week-end the weather made a big shift and it is super cold! We are all finding ourselves tucked up into our houses again making tea and watching movies.
I have been doing some songwriting! I wrote a song the other day called 911! The melody just came to me when I was washing the endless stack of dishes that were piling up in my sink. ;-) The song is all about having a love emergency! I plan on putting this song on my album!
Speaking of albums, I have found a producer that will be a perfect fit for my debut solo album!!! I did a mini road trip up to Chelsea, Vermont earlier this week and met with Kristina Styykos. Her specialty is acoustic music! Along with producing, She is also a fantastic songwriter/artist. The best way to describe her sound would be what Melissa Etheridge would sound like if she did folk music. Kristina has a grittiness and genuineness that just pulls you in. Check out her music here
Her studio is off the grid and is on top of a mountain and it has some of the most breathtaking views! I am going to try and take some good pictures of the views when I go back and post them for you on facebook and Instagram! I felt totally at home there! She also has two really sweet cats! One of them is a calico cat that kept seeking out my affection. :-) Recording will begin this spring! I had originally wanted to do the recording over the winter but have had some setbacks between getting a nasty bout of the flu and dealing with life's usual conundrums that come up! I feel that everything happens for a reason and I might have not made the amazing connection with Kristina if I had rushed and pushed myself into recording sooner!
How has your winter been going? Would love to hear from you! Feel free to catch up with me on facebook.
