If you like my songs and you like cake you will love this video by Popsugar.
SOOO last weekend husband and a few friends and I tore apart Brooklyn studio/prop house ACME to shoot a music video for Small Town. It was AMAZINGLY fun. ACME is the coolest place. Super nice/chill people who made the experience very non-stressful. Matthew Perkins (The Little Tin Man) shot and directed.
I love this quote from ACME’s site. Pretty much sums up our day…
“The motivation of ACME has never been about money, it’s been about offering a space where people can come and do their own projects, bring their own ideas, and take what we have and what we’ve offered and make it their own. ACME aims to be a catalyst to help creative people be creative. When you have 4,000 square feet of space to play with and you don’t have to apologize or ask permission, and you run with it, it’s like, yeah. This is what New York City is about. And we’re just getting started.”
Final product coming soon!
Woot! I wrote a little song called Coming Up Short for the indie film The Little Tin Man last summer. Sung by the quartet Made Over. Check out the trailer here! Excited to see this project by talented filmmakers Matthew Perkins and Nathan Dugan Bridges come to fruition.
A visit to the set the day of the scene…
Played last night at an All Angel’s Cafe Night. It was so fun to demo some new songs in such a beautiful venue with amazing acoustics. The Fretful Porcupine played first. Wow. Incredibly unique blend of saxophone and fiddle and a few other instruments! Toe tapping and haunting at the same time. Very cool stuff.
Thanks to all who came out!

Here’s a link to a radio interview I did last month at 100.7 WHUD after which the station played “Movin’ On” from You Can’t Take It Back. I was suuuper nervous. If I can’t write a song about it, it’s hard to articulate what I think and feel. But Kathy Millar was very kind and let me ramble on a bit before getting to most of my points.
Hey there fans and friends and mom. Welcome to my new site. The internet is amazing. Have you ever seen that Louie CK bit on Conan where “everything is amazing and nobody’s happy.” OK google it now. Hilarious. But anyway, it’s true. Just sit for a minute and think about how amazing the internet is.
