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.
