“Love’s Turmoil” is my journey over the past couple of months…I’ve been feeling suffocated by life, by the stresses of being a mom, by the responsibilities of teaching 17 students, by not having enough time for me and for my music!  I cut myself off from everyone, I joined an amazing yoga studio and started soul searching…”What do I really want? When do I feel most balanced and happy?”

And of course the answer is the same as it’s always been, spending more time with my children and writing and performing my songs!  I thought by teaching more it would give me more money so as I could get to the studio and start recording an album and all it did was leave me with no time to accomplish what I truly wanted.  It took awhile, but I finally made a decision to cut out over half of my students, and wow, did I feel free again!  I was able to finish my song and record it and start relaxing and just enjoying life again!

 

“It is only when we silent the blaring sounds of our daily existence that we can finally hear the whispers of truth that life reveals to us, as it stands knocking on the doorsteps of our hearts.”-K.T.Jong

 

 

 

What a long 5 months…
I was ready to give up and send the piano back to the store, but thanks to Bob Moffatt, a Master Piano Technician I am loving my new piano again!
It seems the Steinway Calgary store was in transition between dealers and I was kind of caught in between as well. What happened is the past, and I am so grateful to Steinway and Sons for sending me out Bob Moffatt, who spent two afternoons at my house fixing my piano.
I have been playing and even composing and reworking an old song! By the end of the week I will post a new recording. For now, I have posted a song I composed a year or so ago. A friend of mine, Ben McMullen recorded it and played some beautiful guitar riffs along with me.
I had forgotten about this song, it is hauntingly beautiful!
I hope you all enjoy…

Haven’t posted in awhile, I’ve been busy trying out pianos and about a month ago I finally found one!!
And I am in love with it!!!
The sound, the sustain, the bass…I can’t describe it. I started writing a new song, it’s not done yet but I wanted to share it!
Hopefully I will finish it soon.
Enjoy!
Oh and I must say my iphone does not do this piano justice, if anyone knows how to record with mics and then put the sound in the video I would love to learn how…
