My Time Spent is My Life Spent

Had a music/song rehearsal with Tracy Stark yesterday. 2.5 hours of singing, finding tempos, trying new things, adding her voice to a few spots, and it was so good to dive back in. I love singing. Though I have had highs & lows in my career, as many artists do, working on The Pass MusicalContinue reading “My Time Spent is My Life Spent”

Matza Ball Soup

As a Jewish woman, it is in my blood to nurture. I was surrounded by nuturing women my entire childhood and my teen years. Some might say, a bit too nurturing leaning towards bossy, at times. Whatever. The intent was/is always to care for those we love. The Yiddish saying Balabusta (Yiddish: בעל־הביתטע‎) is a Yiddish expression describing aContinue reading “Matza Ball Soup”

Happy

Think about what makes you happy. One of my grandest and certainly most long-term moments of happiness, which is thankfully on-going, is sitting at the piano and creating songs. I sing, I explore, I scribble words, and it feels like my soul and my feet, meet. Grounded and yet soaring. I am reading a bookContinue reading “Happy”

Kiss me in the rain

Working on my newest song, which is about coming out of the storm and moving into a place of trust and comfort. Two very important elements to a happy & creative life and even perhaps a content life. Trust & inner comfort. Reflecting on the question from the Lesflicks Q & A 5/4/21 who couldContinue reading “Kiss me in the rain”

Pick a Lane

One of the things that always irritated, frustrated and even angered me, when I first began working in the music business, was how many times I heard from male industry professionals, pick a lane. I was told, you can’t mix so many genres as a performer, in pop music, you either do this or that.Continue reading “Pick a Lane”

A West Village Original, ha! Living Large in Small Spaces

Michael D. Minichiello and I spoke over the phone and he summed up my life, career and THE PASS in 7 paragraphs! Now that’s some fine tuning! Really enjoyed speaking with him. And I think the most charming part of New York is The West Village, hands down. Everything is smaller so maybe smaller isContinue reading “A West Village Original, ha! Living Large in Small Spaces”
