New Beginnings 

June 14 - I'm a water snake. Every few years, I shed my skin.  I slough it off and turn into something completely different.  Sometimes I keep pieces of the old me, of course I do. But a lot of times, I experience the birth process over and over again.  It's taken me almost 70 years to see that. And when I change, things are a bit different. 

Sometimes my music takes a back seat, and I dive into my photography. Sometimes I knit sweaters like tomorrow is not coming.  Sometimes I write poetry - reams and reams of it. And sometimes I cook.  But through it all I read everything. So this website is all about this.  Could be the next permutation. Could be I rant about the state of affairs in the world.  You never know.  

Right now I'm trying to figure out how to play my music online. I've done a few live facebook things and didn't think they were quite successful. So i've purchased a little mixer and I have a mic. I'm going to try again. One thing this pandemic has done, is level the playing field in the music business. We're all at home and we're all having to rely on the media platforms to survive. It's quite freeing in a way. I love that. 

We still have to get through this. No matter what, we still have to get through this. 

As I sit here on day 3 of self-isolation, I am reminded yet again of the power of community.  More than once I've found myself in awe of the outpouring of love and support from friends all over the globe.  We are all in this together - this covid 19 pandemic.  But we will get through this.  It is our resilience and love that will sustain and uplift when it's needed most.  

I have decided to release previously unheard material.  These are songs that have sat in the vaults for a long time.  Not the greatest production, but some hidden gems for sure.  Check it out under unreleased material.  

Here's a quote from the book I'm reading - Station Eleven

No more internet. No more social media, no more scrolling through litanies of dreams and nervous hopes and photographs of lunches, cries for help and expressions of contentment and relationship status updates with heart icons whole or broken, plans to meet up later, please, complaints, desires, pictures of babies dressed as bears or peppers for Halloween. No more reading and commenting on the lives of others and in so doing, feeling slightly less alone in the world.  ~Emily St. John Mandel

Would that we never reach that point.  Love.......


....what struck me most was the authenticity that you managed to convey, both through the arrangements, but also the content. Not many albums these days resonate as much as yours does. Thanks!!”
I love how the sad and the beautiful and the f----ing hard and horrible and the reluctant acceptance all get their moment and...all seem to belong together. Making something real. ”
It is so beautiful, Jane! Your voice is so gorgeous and the production suits it perfectly. Such sorrow and love. So well done! Congratulations!”
This record is so damn amazing!! WOW!!!”
