It’s been a crazy two weeks, to say the least. I released 4 different versions of the same jingle which was a blast. I truly do love songwriting. It’s my jam.
You heard me.
I was still totally new to playing rock. To gain experience I had decided to just say yes to everything that came my way and try out as many things as I could until my calendar just wouldn’t allow room. Thusly, when I got the phone call from Margrit saying this band needed a sub for an important show down in L.A. I said “sure, why not?”
Enter Sparrows Point.
I am so in love with this song. (Am I allowed to say that?) I wrote it very soon after the Presidential election in 2016. It was one of those songs that came out very quickly – the whole thing probably wrote itself in like 15 minutes.
“Burst” was released to the world as a music video yesterday – this song is very near to my heart and I’ve been feeling super vulnerable for the last two weeks gearing up for it.
I wrote this song when I was at my most raw and I wanted to capture what was going on inside my head.
I’m super pleased to announce that my newest album with Sit Kitty Sit, Tectonic, is finally here! Two years in the making, this album encompasses all the huge personal growth both Mike and I have gone through since 2014. I am so very proud of this album – everything. The lyrics and music and the production quality as well. I wrote a full blog on the Sit Kitty Sit website telling the story behind the album and all of the individual songs. We recorded it with Rick Spagnola at Dog Water Studios in Reno, NV. A fantastic, healing experience.
The first single, “Paper Doll”, off of Sit Kitty Sit’s upcoming album Tectonic came out on Tuesday, April 17th. I really really love the finished product:
I knew it would happen – I was cruising through all this music because I knew at some point my ears would say “no.” And it happened. And then I turned into a space cadet, which is what happens when I go into phase 2 of my writing process. And then I went into writing mode and spit about 3 songs. So I’ve been chipping away at The List since then. I’m not giving up though – the goal still stands. I just need to get a move on is all. I can do this. (She says to convince herself if no one else)
(If any of you are just joining us, I’m in the process of listening to 100 albums before my birthday. You can start here.)
