LISTEN TO SOME MUSIC
- Message In A Bottle -
This song is a time capsule I wrote to my sons before my youngest was born, explaining to them the complications of trying to sustain in my marriage to their father. This is a letter to them pretty much predicting that our marriage wouldn't survive, but our love for them both forever lives on.
- Touch Down -
Quarantine's got me in my feels... Here's an ode to being able to tour once again.
- Last Tango -
Sometimes even the most graceful high vibration woman reaches her fill on dancing the dance of mundane work and romance... get ready for that Last Tango!
