It’s in the Trees! It’s Coming! Hounds of Love Acoustic Cover October 21, 2019


Selecting the songs to include on my NAKED KATE acoustic anthology was all at once daunting and exhilarating. The process of rediscovering her music all over again was almost like a journey through Time and Space, remembering where I was in my life when I first encountered the music.

A Tribute to My Influences January 3, 2018


When I was a kid, I spent hours and hours in my room playing my guitar and singing. I sometimes would also wander out into the woods around our house with my guitar until I found just the right spot, and  sit on the ground serenading the trees. There was one song I played over Read More…


The Making of: We Carry On October 3, 2017


Of all the songs on DREAM DANCE, this one was probably the MOST challenging. I had my struggles with others, to be sure. Dream Dance, the song itself, presented multiple difficulties (culminating with 27 versions of it)! But We Carry On was its own beast. I had set myself a goal to write a pop anthem Read More…
