Description

An original expression of jazzy soul poetry that digs deep to mine for truth inside our hearts.

Notes

In 2009, when my daughter was a baby she cried for what seemed to be all night long, every night, for two years. I discovered the one thing, even more than nursing, that calmed her, and kept my sanity, was singing. Then, in 2010, when my son was five years old, I became adamant that he begin music lessons. After a few lessons he said, "Mom! I don't want music, YOU want music!" I said, "Wow. You're right. I do." After an award-winning public radio career of turning the microphone on mothers nationwide to capture their intimately personal experiences about pregnancy, birth, and motherhood, I realized, in that moment, something was fundamentally missing from my work, something that came to me in the wee hours of night. For the first time, I was moved to turn the microphone toward my own journey. Since then, I have worked intensively with David Rosenfeld to hone my voice. In doing so, a wellspring of 10 original songs have emerged. In June 2013, I ran a successful Kickstarter Campaign and raised over $15,000 to co-produce, with David, my debut studio album, DELVE.

"Your songs and lyrics are beautiful.”
- Elizabeth Lesser, Founder of The Omega Institute and NYTimes bestselling author of Broken Open: How Difficult Times Can Help Us Grow

"Your songs are deeply personal, and your performances have a fine quality of communicating, as if it were one-on-one. I noticed that you change your voice quality for each song, in a most appealing way."
- Elizabeth Lauer, critically acclaimed composer who worked with Columbia Records in the years of Clive Davis

"Your voice is heavenly and the lyrics are uplifting.”

- Rachael Knight, Namati: Innovations in Legal Empowerment

"This is such a stunning song. I love the words and the message just blows my mind. I envisioned you at a venue, singing to an audience of fans and just blessing people with your presence and wisdom. It's really powerful, truly so, so powerful. I am amazed. Thank you for sharing these with me, and for sharing yourself with the world. You are such a light and such a healer.”
- Tania Ketenjian, Editor-in-Chief, The [Un]Observed, A Radio Magazine
