How to Stay Foot Loose & Fancy Free in an Interdependent World, Without Being a Vestal Virgin

It seems we are all getting more and more attached to things: the newest cell phone,  fit-bit, computers, drama, content, dependent-relationships, new relationships, crisis & mayhem, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram accounts, prescription medication, illegal drugs and other substances. Why have we become a needier race? What is it about this time that has us all soContinue reading “How to Stay Foot Loose & Fancy Free in an Interdependent World, Without Being a Vestal Virgin”

THE PASS LONDON 2018

At the end of 2017 I was busy wrapping up a hundred details, tying loose ends as if they were bows on packages, ensuring everything was tidy and pristine. Now 2018 has come and a whole new year lies ahead, a wide-open expanse of time like a prairie covered in snow–it’s beautiful, exciting and scary.Continue reading “THE PASS LONDON 2018”

Great Expectations

I want to talk about my work in PR. Charles Dickens, author of A Christmas Carol, also wrote Great Expectations–a novel about a boy who thinks he is going to inherit a lot of money, gets into debt, doesn’t inherit anything, and must face the consequences. Sometimes managing a PR and marketing firm can beContinue reading “Great Expectations”

I Dreamt About Taylor Swift Last Night

So I woke up this morning having had a very long dream that I wrote six songs with Taylor Swift for her new album–which of course I didn’t. What was so interesting was that within the dream while I was working with her, I was making sure I was mentally recording the ideas; I wasContinue reading “I Dreamt About Taylor Swift Last Night”

Racing Through The Snow

Winter is often seen as down-time, a season to lie low and rejuvenate while waiting for warm weather to return. But as the cold comes and the year turns, I am feeling invigorated and living for new challenges. One thing I’m concentrating on is the promotion of my one-woman musical production THE PASS. As 2018Continue reading “Racing Through The Snow”

DO IT MYSELF (DIM) The Music Business & Streaming Music

I went indie in 1997. After two hit records as a vocalist and two publishing deals that went south because both times my publisher left the company mid-contract, it was time to DIM. (Do It Myself)  It was a big learning process. And now indie artists are flourishing! They get themselves started and then a majorContinue reading “DO IT MYSELF (DIM) The Music Business & Streaming Music”

Pinpointing My Dream

After basking in the afterglow of my first performance of THE PASS, my one woman show including original songs, I now say: What’s Next? A dream is a pure thing, beautiful and nebulous as a cloud, filled with light. But to successfully mount a show a dream is unfortunately not enough. I have a vision;Continue reading “Pinpointing My Dream”

AFTER GLOW

On Thursday 9/28 at 7 pm I unleashed for the first time The Pass, to an audience of 20 privately invited guests. It was held in the home of my director Gretchen Cryer. The performance was an extremely rewarding experience for me on many levels as I had worked so very hard to prepare for thisContinue reading “AFTER GLOW”

Reigning it in: Staging a Production

As a musical performer I’ve been told I often use sweeping and dramatic gestures and move about a lot on stage. What I’m learning now is that being a singer with a band is a lot different than doing a one-woman show. As I rehearse my show THE PASS it’s been brought to my attentionContinue reading “Reigning it in: Staging a Production”

BE YOURSELF – INDIVIDUALISM IS THE NEW TREND

For several decades now, since the highly individualistic 60’s, people seem to have gravitated more to group dynamics than to self-expression. Until recently that is. With the election of Trump, and with corporate politics being constantly questioned, people are again realizing the value of forming their own opinions, instead of having their ideas dictated toContinue reading “BE YOURSELF – INDIVIDUALISM IS THE NEW TREND”
