I wrote a song with my friend, Kelly Fitzgerald, called "To Be Someone." I have totally fallen in love with it! I wake up humming it, and it has been in my head for days now. It came from a long conversation Kelly and I had about staying true to ourselves, and how important it is to really know yourself- especially when you are being pulled in many different directions. It has a little bit of a country twang to it, so it will be interesting to see how Mark decides to record it. I love the way Kelly plays guitar on it. It reminds me of some of my favorite Tom Petty songs. So, that one is next on the list to record.
Next week, I have the amazing Bernie Barlow coming over to sing some background parts, Dave Beyer is playing drums on a few new tunes, and James Harrah is also coming over to play his magical guitar. I'm excited! I'll be ready with my Flip Cam...
I'm so grateful for the pre-orders we've been receiving. It's because of them that we are able to hire such wonderful musicians to add their sparkle to my songs.
Special thanks to John and Pam for your generous contributions!
We have raised $1400 so far!
We still have a way to go to build a budget for promoting the CD once it is done though. Every little bit counts. Even those $10 levels are great!
I am so grateful to be living a life in music and to have so much support from all of my listeners. Thank you!
