I have never been a model employee. From the age of 14 until I was 25, I've held around 12 jobs (I may be forgetting a couple). In each and every one of these positions, I would show up to work and do my job with one foot out the door. When I worked at Wal-Mart, I was forever filling up receipt tape with random notes to myself. Story ideas, song lyrics, scraps of poetry, random observations. I'd watch the customers for inspiration for character's that I would one day write about. I'd…Continue

Today my son came into my room with this really strange disk thingy in one hand and a rectangular thingamajig in the other. At first I was so ready to yell at him, wondering why he's walking around the house with a smoke detector but as he got closer I realized it wasn't a smoke detector. The condition of it made it look like it could've been some type of artifact used by our grandparents, but it wasn't. At first, I myself…Continue

When I was in fourth grade, I remember watching Saturday morning cartoons with my younger brother while my mom would sleep late. In between these cartoon shows, ABC began airing these four-minute music videos by a Puerto Rican group of teenage boys who called themselves Menudo. While my brother would point and laugh at these dark-haired pre-pubescent boys wearing matching outfits, shaking their little hips and singing Spanish songs about shopping malls and…Continue

Thought provoking reflections on life.
This story begins in Arkansas with the nine-year-old Michael, and his younger brother, abandoned by their father, living with their strict grandmother who regularly beats them. The family attend church regularly, he discovers at a young age, he has a gift for playing the organ and it is the beginning of a lifelong love of music.
As any mother of a three-year-old knows, you spend a lot of your time asking your child, "Are you listening to me?" (The answer, by the way, is almost always 'no.' Children have much better things going on than listening to their mother.) One way to improve your child's hearing may be to give them music lessons.

Ever make plans to go somewhere, and it doesn't pan out the way you expected? Yet, where you do end up ends up being some how, uh, better? Well, yesterday my sister and niece came over for a visit and our intent was to check out a car show, because car shows are cool, lol. I had no idea it was canceled, so after driving all the way there and seeing the location deserted, I had the bright idea to just go to the Marina and enjoy…Continue

In my family, we are serious, music-loving fools. Now, granted, none of us can actually play an instrument (well, not yet anyway!), but we sure as heck appreciate people who can. Yep, we dig it so much that it's generally playing in our house in some form or fashion 24/7.…Continue
Don't get your panties in a twist, I'm not asking about *that* first! Who was your first favorite band/singer? What was your first favorite song? Do you remember? I listened to a lot of music with my mom in the late 80s/early 90s. I liked my mom's music a lot when I was little, and a lot of it I still really love (take Madonna, for example. Loved her music back then, but not her new stuff). It…Continue

I remember how the song “Lighten” came to me as clearly as if it were yesterday. I was rocking my baby to sleep and probably drooling on myself because I was so tired and relaxed at the same time. I thought of all the other women in the world who work so hard,give tirelessly of themselves to their families and the world, have such love that they share. I was thinking of how incredibly wonderful they are….how precious and loved they are. and how they probably still struggle with occasional…Continue

For as long as I can possibly remember, I have absolutely LOVED Prince. Even way, way back in elementary school, my best friend and I would hole up in her room and blast songs that we knew were completely inappropriate for our innocent, young eardrums. I begged and I pleaded with my mom to PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE let me see him in concert but was told…

As a mom that produces music from my home studio, I have been known to sport a special hairstyle I call, “headphone hair.” It’s hard to describe but there’s a unique shape the hair takes on from a day of recording. We’ve all been known to sport that “hat hair” look but when you wear headphones for hours on end it’s a special look of it’s own. Recording is such a timeless venture. One guitar track can take hours and once I dive into the process I’m usually sucked in for the…Continue
