Sorry to burden you with his cuteness but it's TOO MUCH FOR ME TO HANDLE BY MYSELF!!
Over the past 5 or 6 years, Zach Jones has played drums on pretty much every project I've been involved with, including my solo music and of course our band Secret Someones. (I consider myself VERY lucky.) Not only is Zach a killer drummer, but he's also a killer singer & songwriter and one of my best friends. I am SO honored to be a collaborator on his new EP, 'Are You a Hologram?'! We wrote this song together and I'm guest singer on it. Check it out and check out his whole EP because it's so damn good.

@bessrogers and I got together for a writing session a few years back (pre-Secret Someones, I think) and she showed me a tune that was already about 90% complete and just needed a little help over the finish line. We figured out the rest of it together, I started singing harmony, and “Getting Used To This” was born. We had never recorded it together and it seemed to fit with the themes that were emerging on this EP, so I thought it was the right time to finally release this one into the wild. Bess, @albis_music, and I spent a day recording it at @rsrstudio, @gregmayomusic and @rightanglerec added their magic, and the result is track 3 on “Are You A Hologram?”! I’ve been so lucky to call Bess a friend and collaborator for many years now and I am thrilled to have her and this song on the new record.
Pre-order now at the link in my profile. Only 3 days to go!

Today was family day at @studiogbrooklyn while @agreatbigworld is making their new record, which sounds SO GOOD & makes me want to dance and cry simultaneously. I got to sing on a song that the boys and I co-wrote and was so psyched to hear it coming together so beautifully. And most importantly, Orion was reunited with his soul brother, Bowie!

This month, only two weeks apart, my Granny and Grandad both passed. In 70 years of marriage they literally never spent a day apart. Although I miss them deeply, I find it so beautiful that they got to spend their whole lives together right up until the very end. I don't know what I believe, but it's nice to think that they're together out there somewhere. RIP Paula & Jerry. Thanks for showing us all what true love can look like. ❤️
Here's @alliemoss & I circa 2010 to tell you we have some workshops coming up... Next Sat Oct 28 ~ Thinking Outside the Blocks part 1, where we share honestly about our experiences of being creatively stuck and how we got out of it / avoid it, & our tools for advancing our writing. .
