Hello, friends! Hope it's a great day for you today! Got a bunch of gigs coming up with our duo the Snarky Sisterz. Been working on some new songs and tunes with hopes a full CD will happen this year. I dropped several single tunes these last two years but wanna have a wholistic set of songs to show, stripped down to mostly vocal and one or two instruments-- so busily working on THAT right now. A few other updates are listed below.

 "My Daily Bread" is a finalist in the 2018 Peace Song Awards and was awarded a Silver Medal in the Global Music Awards

"I Paid Up" was just chosen for an Honorable Mention award for the Mid-Atlantic Song Contest in the Americana category and "No Apology" was chosen for the Honorable Mention award in the Gospel/Christian/Inspirational category.  Last year, "I Know You" received an honorable mention for the Mid-Atlantic Song Contest. So I thought I should mention that I am tres honored! :-)

"The Kids Ain't Alright" was picked up by Rehegoo Music for distribution, and the song landed on Airplay Today's top 100 College/Indie list from July through September, 2018.  

I was a recent guest on Song of the Soul with host Mark Judkins Helpsmeet, whose program on Northern Spirit Radio takes a look at musical artists and their songs and songs that speak to them: "Music has the ability to proclaim the soul's language beyond what mere words can speak." What a nice experience, and what a nice man. 

I'm also happy to announce that "My Daily Bread" was selected for RAWA's Second Annual Song for Social Change Songwriting Competition as one of the eight runners-up in the contest.  Very grateful and thankful. Got some recent airplay for My Daily Bread on KGNU's Restless Mornings  , WJCU's The I, the IV and the V  and WLRN's Folk and Acoustic show hosted by Michael Stock.

 And...Diana Quinn and I (aka Snarky Sisterz) just released our new CD via CDBaby. Fun times!

 Namaste, y'all. Keep checking back for more news, gigs and songs! And remember, do what ya gotta do to say what ya gotta say!!
