Well, this week has sort of jingled my bells in a fancy way (ya that’s right) and it was completely unexpected.. I’ll have more details as things unfold, but I definitely feel like I’m where I’m supposed to be..
Tonight, I wanted to get my feelings down about the Skipping Stone EP. I’m excited to get it out to you. It was such a passion project for me and I was so lucky to have the help and genius of some wonderful musicians and friends to make it even happen. It started with a couple of songs, and turned into something really authentic and special for me.
James Lewis in London who graciously offered his genius hands and mind on mixing. As did my dear friend Greg Wells, who did the same of course. James, also introducing me to the mastermind Robin Schmidt who fittingly mastered the album. Jimmy Robbins gave so much space for me to write everything I was feeling inside, without judgement or ego whatsoever. Mike Shimshack brought the track Walking to exactly where I heard it in my head, and beyond. Drew Leahy and his bright ideas and honesty helped me through the details and my brother Zak, his artistic eye and talent is beyond measure and I’m blessed to be his sister.
The Skipping Stone video is at 50k views I just realized!! …That was a fun day.
I’m releasing the EP on the 24th and look forward to playing these songs for you live.
I’m heading to Miami this month to start shooting a film on the 30th. It’s not a long shoot, and I have no idea what to expect or how it’s going to be when I get there, but I thank the heavens as it gave me the extra green light on my visa which I needed to pursue my musical endeavours here in the US this year. Which, in hopes will potentially lead to more, amazing work as well! I’ve never been to Miami, but…..
More to come, la de dee dum.
