The past few days have been a beautiful whirlwind... I had the absolute HONOR of recording my album with my DREAM TEAM this week.
We camped out at Nashville's coveted Ocean Way Studios for two days and recorded thirteen songs. I could not have asked for a better crew; produced by the visionary Gus Berry and engineered by GRAMMY Award-Winning engineer, Ben Fowler.
I'm not kidding when I say the WORLD's FINEST MUSICIANS played on the record. The band consists of Nir Z on drums (John Mayer, Jason Mraz), John Hobbs on piano (Vince Gill, Willie Nelson), Michael Rhodes on bass (Etta James, Taylor Swift), Danny Rader on acoustic guitar, bazouki and mandola (Keith Urban, Jewel), JT Corenflos on electric guitar (Civil Wars, Dierks Bentley) and Tom Bukovac on electric guitar (Stevie Nicks, Allison Krauss). WOW. What a DREAM to work with them!
And it was all possible because of YOU! Thank you for believing in this project enough to help me fund the record. All donors were invited to watch the recording process live from their computer screen and it was a joy to have you "in" the studio with us. The dream team and I absolutely LOVED the energy and excitement you brought to the studio. You are the reason we create music. I can't wait to share this album with you!
Oh and welcome to my sweet new website!! Go explore... make yourself at home.
Love & Gratitude,
This summer, 645 fans donated to the making of my fourth record and raised 157% of the goal!
Words cannot express my gratitude for your incredible love and support. Because of you, I am recording the CD of my dreams with world class musicians at a top notch studio in Nashville. The album is slated to be released in February 2013 but stay tuned on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for pictures and updates from the upcoming September studio sessions.
I am honored and thrilled to make this next record with you and FOR YOU.
I'm excited to announce that a brand, new unreleased song will be featured in tonight's season finale of Lifetime's hit TV show, Army Wives. The song, "The Is Not The End," was written in Nashville earlier this year when I took part in a writing session with amazing songwriters Allen Salmon, Shannon Wright & Michelle Lewis.
We're not exactly sure when the song will be released, but I'll be sure to let everyone know as soon as I have more information, so be sure to sign up for the MAILING LIST to stay in the loop! :)
