I've Moved to Santa Fe! 

I've just moved to this beautiful town filled with creative lovely people. I'm walking distance to cafes, a river walk, buildings that are several centuries old, art galleries, and much more. I can't wait to explore this magical place. 

Once I'm settled I'll get back to recording my next album. I have piano and guitar down for most of the songs but had to take a break from production to pack up and move.

I've Moved to Bend, OR! 

In the past four months I sold my home in Nashville, temporarily moved to Berkeley to be near my father and fix up his house, bought a home in Bend, OR, and drove all of my stuff across the country to move there. Well, my husband Tom drove the 26' truck, I drove our Honda behind him and had the easier trek. I couldn't make Audible work so I listened to oldies stations on the radio as I drove through the heartland of the US. I'm looking forward to settling in here and making music again.

13 Women is out now! 

Spring is coming, vaccines are happening, and life is feeling a bit lighter these days.I'm happy to announce that the new album is out, please go the 13 Women page for music samples and lots of info on all the amazing women who inspired this album. I've been having lots of fun doing interviews and reading the nice reviews coming in for the album. It's super gratifying to see this project get out into the world.

Songs to Make You Cry Then Lift You Back Up 

I was listening to David Wilcox' incredible song "Chet Baker's Unsung Swan Song" and it inspired me to create a new Spotify playlist. I filled it with one bummer song each from some of the greats: Joni, David Wilcox, Leonard Cohen, Tom Waits, Rickie Lee Jones, Sam Cooke, Shawn Colvin, John Hiatt--and also more recent wonderful singer/songwriters like Jason Isbell, Kris Delmhorst, Becky Warren, and Corrine Bailey Rae. The last three songs are more hopeful but who knows, they might make you cry too:

Getting Ready for 13 Women 

There's much to do before the release of 13 Women, and since like most of you I'm still at home I'm sitting here doing it! Plus I've been playing all the songs to the dog we've been fostering, hoping that one of these months I can play for a live audience again. The first single "Just Give Me Everything" will release the day after Thanksgiving, when I hope you will all be sitting around digesting. Pre-orders of 13 Women start that day as well.
