In my head 

When I'm performing, nothing else matters. The crummy music industry doesn't exist. The juggle of two careers feels like a breeze. My bills sitting on the table that I can barely pay with two full time gigs aren't really there. The fact that I'm probably going home to bed alone tonight isn't a thought in my mind. Because when I'm performing, I'm alive.. and nothing else is important.

I often wonder if this high can ever be matched by anything else. I wonder if this is exactly why so many big stars turn to…Read more

My favorite Christmas Carol 

Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas

Every time I hear this song, I am immediately moved into the holiday spirit. There's just something about the feel of the melody and lyrics that give you an image in your head about the love and joy of Christmas, family together, sharing memories, love, etc. In addition, this was one of my favorite carols to sing in my high school ensemble - some of the greatest years of my life. I remember singing a high soprano descant at the end. Strong harmonies in this song made…Read more

Band = Family 

Whether i'm rockin' out solo, with other musicians, or singing in a choir of 60 people, I love playing music. However, there's something special about a band. I love playing with my band. There are so many reasons bands become like family, and if they don't - they probably aren't the right fit. (been there, too).

I feel so comfortable around my guys; We can just relax, have fun, and work together through our sets. When things go wrong, no worries - they're there for me. When things go right? We smile, laugh,…Read more

Using Me  

I wrote this song back in 2007 when I was in a college class. (sorry, prof).  I actually wrote it about a friend's situation.. not my own.  I woke up today thinking about this song and how appropriate it is in my life now.  Did I just write it last week?  Crazy how we all go through similar situations in life.  Crazy how one of my own, old songs can help me get through this time.  Weird, right? 

Check it out - "Using Me" by me.
