September News!

Dear Friends,

I am thrilled to announce that two of my songs were SELECTED FINALIST IN THE JOHN LENNON SONGWRITING CONTEST!!!!

Lonely Me was selected finalist in the 'Country' category and Hold On was selected finalist in the 'Folk' category. To say I am honored would be an understatement. The decision to pursue songwriting often feels like a crazy notion--the songwriter never knows if her songs are being understood or if they are having an impact on her listeners. To receive this honor is a huge validation for me, and gives me the encouragement I need to continue down this circuitous and often unpredictable path. To see a list of all of the winners and listen to the winning selections, please go to this link. 

I am also pleased to anounce that I was FEATURED IN THIS MONTH'S ISSUE OF ARTFUL MIND MAGAZINE. It was an absolute delight to participate in this interview, and I am thrilled with the way it turned out, including the beautiful photos by Edward Acker, Tricia McCormack, and Lee Everett.  To read the full interview, please go to this link.

NEW YORK FRIENDS!!! Please SAVE THE DATE!  I will be performing at John Platt's On Your Radar showcase at Rockwood Music Hall on Tuesday, October 11, from 7-9 PM. Please go to this link to purchase tickets .

That's all for now! Sending a big THANK YOU to each and every one of you for folowing me on this journey!
