Hey, can’t believe it’s August already. I’ve been my usual MIA cause it’s summer. Love summer and the feeling of freedom it brings. And I’m never cold! But it goes by so fast when you’re not a kid anymore.
Wish I could say the new songs are done but having hard time getting beats right. Am perfectionist producer to my own disadvantage. And I kept changing one so finally let it go tonight. So relieved, but excited for the others. If I have to mess with it it’s not right. Should be effortless…they write themselves.
Have also been trying to find a guy singer/musician to mix things up with since my guitarist doesn’t sing. Interesting ride, that.
Hope everyone’s having a super fab summer. Feel grateful for every day. The world needs more frickin love right now.

Happy Spring! Hope life is being good to all…at least most of time. It’s hard to have constant perfection…would be boring anyway right hmm.
So back in studio with new song and needing snack. This one was abandoned but then I played it again and wondered why I abandoned it. Sometimes get bogged down in production if I don’t like direction it’s going. Happy with melody and key parts but have to change some words to fit better. Never happened before but gotta fit with the beat. So now people who heard it before don’t want me to change words. Will see what I can do. x
Happy Valentines Day! Hope you have some fun and some love. If you’re not lucky in love right now don’t stress it will come when you least expect it. x
Thanks to Damien Trax aka TraXnCtrl for this cool remix. Download and dance!
Had a great time visiting friends in Australia over the holidays. Was way cool flying into summer there.
Love Sydney, the people and the frickin good cappuccino. Same for Melbourne. There’s a huge rivalry between the two cities, especially since everyone in Melbourne tells you it’s voted the best city in the world to live…and that they have the best coffee. No argument there. Loved the street art and food but it’s hard to pick a fave between the two. Not gonna touch that but nothing beats New Years Eve in Sydney.
Am now refreshed and writing like crazy person…meaning actually finishing songs that I’d abandoned for whatever reason and writing new. I love LA and So Cal and feel lucky to live here, but forgot how valuable it is to really disconnect from your everyday life…including social media…sorry, there was so much to see and do.
Hope everyone gets to at least take a mini-break soon or whatever it takes! Fingers crossed on recording but working on songs is pure joy. x
Melbourne street art
Vintage power adaptor thingy that made flat iron hum so no flat iron eek…really?
And yeah, “Sydney boys have great hair”…
Wishing everyone a happy holiday! With all the horrific things that have happened throughout the world recently, I wish more than ever for Peace on Earth, and to live in a perfect world. My heart goes out to all affected. Stories of courage and selflessness made me put into words what I already knew…”we’re all superheros in disguise”.
Wishing you peace, love, and happiness in 2016…and to live in a perfect world. x
“How did everything get so crazy?
We’re all superheros in disguise
Kings and queens make it through the day
It’s a small world after all…it’s such a small world after all”

ps The clip of working on song is too big to post hope soon
Hope everyone had a fab Thanksgiving! Feeling super thankful.
Thought I’d post this remix of “So Familiar” by Metrocity for the weekend. It totally makes me want to dance. Thanks again Metrocity. Download and happy dancing or working out. x
