2015 was probably the most challenging of my life. At it’s eve I was in the depths of a serious funk with 3 months of chemo yet to go for reoccurring breast cancer, followed by 6 weeks of radiation. The recovery has been long and slow while my hair has remained disappointedly short. If something could go wrong it would: From a hostile divorce too expensive publicists not doing anything, being told I have stage IV cancer in September and finding out a few months later that my mom has breast cancer too. I’m a single mom with very little support and I’ve been hurt physically, spiritually, mentally and emotionally.
I’m here for my children, first and foremost and my music has taken a backseat for awhile, but what I’ve come to find out in my hiatus is that what I love about music, more than anything else, is making it with other people. The process makes me sparkle and shine and, in contrast, my solo career has felt very lonely. I’ve made music by myself all my life and I feel like I’m missing something out there. I simply don’t want to do this by myself anymore.
So I’m putting it out there this year: I want to find people to make music with. As much and as often and as varied as possible. I want to leave as much of myself here as I can while I have the time. I want to do something that makes me feel alive!
Who wants to make some music?
