Dearest friends & musical family!

It’s been a good long while since I released an album of new originals, so it is SWEEEEEET to announce that I have been writing, writing, writing and gathering steam to make my best, most luminous (new favorite word) album yet.

I don’t want to say “these are my most honest songs to date,” because I always write honestly if nothing else. But I will say this: these songs have been born from the most vulnerable moments of my life. I’ve been a good listener, and my past albums were largely written from other people’s stories. Well, the past several years have had me walking a rope bridge over numerous canyons. There has been a great deal of loss, tangible and intangible. And a lot of sustenance.

So I’ve been singing across those deep, open spaces to keep myself awake, hopeful, joyful, and alive. These are the songs I hope to record.

By reaching the minimum goal here, we can record a 7-song ep + pay for graphic design + fulfill all the promised goodies in the store. If we EXCEED the goal, we’ll add songs to the record and aim towards music videos! Fun & helpful for sharing the music!

I’m planning to work with Ben Shive (Colony House, Ellie Holcomb, Andrew Peterson) who also produced my Covers EP! We’d like to record in August.

And once again, I can’t--and wouldn’t want to--do it without you.

Without knowing it, you have often been a lifeline and support for me, your messages coming at just the right time to say, “Keep going. I heard this song and it made a difference.”

Your support in this next journey would mean the world to me--and I think we’ll have a great time together!

Thankyouthankyouthankyou, my beautiful people. I love you.

During song selection process, I record a version of each song right here at home on the piano. We figure if it is a great song, it’ll show even without production. I send these to the producer and a few others, and we narrow them down to the final track list. I don’t want the whole world to hear these tender babies, but I’ll send them to you! All songs that make the final cut, in original home demo form.
