Songstress

The more I grow, the more I understand that singing is not just something I can do.  It is a gift I can offer.  It can be an entry to dialogue in my research.  And it soothes my soul, particularly when I sing the blues.

Currently I am working on composing some new material with my partner in love and life, Mike Anderson.  One of the projects Mike and I are working on is a song written by a study participant in my PhD dissertation research.  She asked me to help because she doesn’t consider herself to be a musician or a singer, so I realized, this is something I can offer her and it it would be a process that enriches us both. Stay tuned here for updates as they become available.

But here are a few tastes of some older material.
