I am so thankful to announce that we have reached 50% of the total goal for the album "Whimsical Romance" fundraiser on Valentine's Weekend! Thank you to all the donations so far that have gotten us to this point and a special thanks to "Dedicated Dave" and "Terrific Ted" for topping it off last night getting us over the hump! I will be working hard to finish up recording in the next few weeks before moving along to final production and mixing and I truly believe we will reach that goal. Thanks to all of you for your belief in this project and your constant encouragement. I can't wait to share all of these song stories with you! www.gofundme.com/romance
Life is like one big romance. This collection of songs is about that romantic story called life, and the ups and downs that come along with it. Based on true stories, mixed with some fantastical exaggerations, this is a fun and playful album of the vast array of emotions that come along with relationships. Written at various stages throughout her life, these are raw stories that have been tried and tested at the piano, even with audience involvement – some relying on percussive snapping and clapping. Feelings range from happiness and pure bliss like in the song “This Kiss”, to a character of craziness and denial like “Next Time”, to more intimate reflections like in “Paranoia”, while others emit strength and moving on. Raw and rustic, catchy and melodic, this album has hints of blues, jazz, and even ragtime.
