Are we melting yet? How’s that tan? I have a ton of sunscreen samples if you need one. Hit me up at a show.

Oh it’s been an eventful Summer already! I’ve been impersonated on Tinder, I got not one, but TWO hole-in-one shots at the Tiki Adventure Miniature Golf, I witnessed Pig Racing for the first time at the County Fair, AND I had a dream that I was on a reality show with Brittany Spears. If you’d like to hear all about it, please come to my shows this summer. I do love to tell stories!

In between rehearsing for tour and shuttling my girls to their various activities and playdates, I’ve been writing.  Long drives on tour opened up the flood gates in my memory and some of those have turned into songs.   I look forward to sharing them with you soon.

I’ll be hopping all over the U.S. this Summer and Fall – West Coast, East Coast, South, Midwest and Northwest, and am still keeping my schedule flexible for Home Invasions (house concerts). Don’t be shy, send me an email to if you can gather 30-50 people with open hearts and open ears. Call it a pot luck and you have yourself a phenomenal *and economical* night of music and merriment!

Father’s Day is this weekend so I thought I’d dig out this little ditty from last year for you.  Chip and I recorded this in one take as a home demo, but when Dante Pasquinelli synched up pictures and videos from friends and family – the song took on a life of it’s own.  I hope you enjoy it.  You can also download the tune at iTunes and make your own video for your Daddy!  Or just send him mine 🙂

Hope to sing for you in person this Summer. Enjoy the extra sunshine and thank you so much for supporting indie music!

In case you didn't believe me, here it is:  Pig Racing at the San Diego County Fair.  #1 was named Kevin Bacon.  I was bummed he lost to Piggy Azalea, #2.

One year ago today, on July 8, 2013, I was diagnosed with breast cancer.  Today, I am Healthy, Happy, a bit emotional…and I don’t need to wear a bra. Ever again. get-attachment

I am packing up for my second leg of my summer tour with the Bacon Brothers which takes me back to PA (Sellersville Theater on 7/11) and then on to New York (City Winery on 7/14 and 7/15).  I can’t even begin to explain how incredibly satisfying it is to share the songs I’ve written over the last year with an audience.  After the show, I am honored to meet so many survivors and care givers who were touched by my music.  As an artist, I am always encouraged and propelled by the notion that music heals, unites and speaks to us when words fail.  I love kicking back and watching the Bacon Brothers when my set is over.  I’m watching my friends pour out their hearts, share their stories, and bring joy to so many people.  We’ve worked together for 16 years now, and I am so grateful and honored to be able to share the road with them.

get-attachment-2On the home front, Jette and Perry start Kindergarten this August and I will be home in time to take them to their first day of school.  They are enlightening, inspiring, hilarious, challenging, and heart warming.   Jette’s songwriting is mind blowing, and she shuns the idea that songs should be between 3 and 4 minutes.  Her masterpieces are about 10-15 minutes in length and do NOT interrupt her.  Perry is the first to grab the microphone at kid’s karaoke, and her favorite song to sing is “Everything is Awesome!”

Chip built us a beautiful studio (Man Cave?) and he’s been hiding away writing songs and producing tracks.  We did all of the drums for my new record at our own Underland Studio.

It’s been a hot and humid summer in Los Angeles ~ feels like a sauna.  I projected my own discomfort on my cat and gave him a “lion’s cut” today to get rid of the fleas and make him feel cooler.  I just spent an hour trying to take his picture, but I think he’s traumatized and won’t come out from under the bed.

Hope you had a wonderful 4th of July and enjoy the rest of summer.  Over the next three months, I will be gearing up for the release of “CURVE” on October 7th.  You can pre-order the cd by clicking here.  All the pre-orders really help with momentum for an indie-artist, so thank you in advance if you are so inclined to show your early support.   I will post a stream for some of the tracks soon, so stay tuned!
