Love Is Love

Posted on CommentsPosted in Compilations

I recently read a comment on one of my YouTube videos… “Whenever I hear your music, it reminds me that I’m not the only gay person out there (even though I’m lesbian). Thank you for your´╗┐ beautiful music…” I’ve been replaying these words over and over again, and now other words from other comments have surfaced and they have all condensed into one crystal clear thought – what I do makes a difference… as small as it may seem – writing these songs, recording these albums, sharing my truth makes a difference. But her 2 sentences also made me realize something else – what we all do makes a difference and sometimes the smallest things matter the most, so I hope today, when the opportunities present themselves, you choose to share… you never know who is listening!

The Story Behind A New Compilation CD

Posted on CommentsPosted in News

For some time now I’ve wanted to compile my LGBTQ affirming singles into an album, so during this retrograde I re-visited the idea, and after re-listening to songs over the weekend, realized I had more than enough for an album.

Of course this also provided an opportunity to tweak some songs (good ideas sometimes come after performing a song live). And after working with Tim’m West on his project Snapshots, I realized that releasing music doesn’t have to require a lot of time (we recorded, mixed and mastered 3 songs in one evening).

So between watching the 3rd season of Archer on Netflix and reading Nalo Hopkinson’s Midnight Robber (have to give the ears a rest… love Nalo!!!), I re-mixed Adam & Steve and Finding Me Lovemaking, and re-mastered Gay Warrior Song. This brought me to a grand total of 8 songs. But then I thought – wouldn’t 10 songs be better… yes I thought, 10 songs would be better… so I went into the vault, remembering 2 new songs I’d worked on last year, just sitting there waiting to be released… Voila!

So new music on Wednesday, I’ll tell you more tomorrow…
