Now, here I am feeling a return to the very essence of who I am and why I am here. This essence also feels new and expanded – older and wiser, capable of holding more and worrying less. What a gift!
As I begin to record my 6th album, I wanted to invite you to two upcoming opporutinties to be with me, my vibration and some new songs.
First on 11/11, I will be doing a chanting event on ZOOM. It’s a pay what you can situation, though you will need to register to get the passcode. Check out the FB event here.
On 12/21/21 – Winter Solstice – I will be chanting live at Power Yoga of CapeCod with a limited number of guests at 15. If you don’t register in time or would rather not be in person you can also sign-up to livestream it.
This will be a true coming home for me – to my beloved Cape Cod and on the winter solstice, a time when I love doing events. The energy will be healing, uplifting and sacred. I would love to be with all that feel called – whether in person or online.
Enjoy this new moon in Scorpio. We have all been evolving at a rapid rate.
It has been a powerful 6 months on planet earth and in the United States of America. very painful for many and also incredibly awakening for us all.
I am excited to be singing this Sunday at 1pm in my home village next to this beautiful mural recently commissioned to be painted on a local barn. (right across the street from Sturgis Library). It was painted by Joe Diggs and Jackie Reeves.
I remember growing up in Barnstable Village and going to Barnstable High School from 1984-1988 and knowing something was very wrong. I could tell how I got special treatment because I was a “good kid”. A good kid because my Dad was a doctor and I had white skin with blond hair. I watched as other students who were black or didn’t have a mom always on the PTA got treated differently. I didn’t have the language to talk about it – and not many adults did either – but I could feel it and it didn’t feel good.
That is why I wanted to get off Cape Cod as quickly as possible. I could tell I was different somehow (even though I had not yet come out as a lesbian) and wanted to find people who felt different like me and were working for equality and inclusion.
I have journeyed to lots of places in this world – 12 years in Brooklyn, NY, a couple years in the Middle East (Cairo & Lebanon), 8 years back on Cape Cod running Sounding Still Wellness and now I am currently living in Boston teaching at a private school in Weston.
The reality and pain of white privilege and colonization is everywhere, and we are in a time now with great opportunity to educate ourselves, so we can begin talking and acting in public, as well as privately, with more intention, awareness and transformational love.
I could not be more happy to sing and be among artists who are asking questions and creating conversations right here in my home village of Barnstable.
I had an incredible time traveling for about 3 and half weeks through the midwest, Nashville, and more midwest. So fun! And all in service of the ongoing evolution of Queen City Records and vision I have for my own music and career.
There are many, many stories to tell, but before all that I wanted to let you know about some cool events happening in the next couple weeks that include my music:
Sunday November 10 9am-5pm HOW to Just Be retreat with Terry Walsh, Tammy Smith and Pernille Register
Monday November 11 4pm-9pm Energy Activation & Sound Healing with Vivienne Gerard and Laurinda Raquel Harwich Cultural Center Register
YES, after two years of 11/11 events in Cincinnati, Vivienne Gerard is coming to Cape Cod. Along with the energy of Laurinda and her bowls, this is going to be truly special. Register now!
And if you can’t make 11/11 or even if you can, be sure to check out this cool collaboration with my friend and yoga teacher Dana Cox at
Saturday November 16 1pm-3pm Gratitude Workshop with Dana Cox Power Yoga of Cape Cod Dennisport Register

We are having so much fun on this new platform and there is TONS OF CONTENT. I have already posted a couple new songs in process.
I was reminded today by facebook of a campaign I did 8 years ago called 40 and Fabulous. I was on the verge of turning 40, having recently returned from a middle east/age crisis (that’s a whole other blog) and was regrouping on Cape Cod.
Cape Cod – what an amazingly blessed place to regroup.
In this practice and campaign I created, I filmed myself everyday for 40 days chanting a different chant and posted it on youtube. I asked people to donate to SQ Foundation if they resonated with the videos. My goal was $40,000. HAHA. I have always dreamed very big.
This experience was an extraordinary lesson for me in consciousness, desire and how energy works. I can see now, that my intentions were multi-fold.
Yes, I wanted to share myself and my gifts as a singer to help support a foundation I believed in.
Yes, I wanted some structure to help me birth this career as a spiritual singer that I knew was real, but had no idea how to create.
And YES, I wanted to be seen and known for who I was, even though my external life seemed like it was going nowhere.
When I didn’t get close to reaching my goal but received an email from SQ Foundation within the next couple months saying that they had a set a goal to reach $40,000 in support of their programs, I learned so much!
It was not about ME being the one to raise the money. It was about ME showing up in my gifts and planting the seed so that WE could all thrive and empower ourselves and each other. Thank God I was crazy enough to do that and give myself a truly healing and awakening experience.
The other thing that happened during that campaign was on day 8, after committing to doing this, I got a bad cold and lost parts of my voice. I RARELY lose my voice. So there I was, humbled, having to acknowledge that singing and chanting is never about how you sound, but about the intention and devotion with which you offer your vibration.
All healing is Self-healing.
Now, as I travel sharing my songs and leading people in chants (as if it was something I always did), I reference this personal experience often to illustrate how we may not ever know fully why we are urged to do things from within. We may feel that the inner guidance we receive or desires we become aware of are crazy and illogical and …..they may be.
However, I have learned, when I take actions from my inner guidance with the right motivation, amazing things can happen – for both me and the people who end up hearing or feeling me.
It is not always an easy path. It can be frustrating and confusing and lonely. However, here I am again at age 48, recommitting to this path. My path. Our path. A path of what I now call Self-Actualization or Living into my Destiny Path.
My only job now is to become uniquely me at the highest potential possible in any given moment. If I truly commit to this, that realization of my pure essence will be of the Highest Service to Humanity, of which I am a part and I will have fun along the way!
Some of you may have figured this out a long time ago. I often joke, I am on the remedial human path. I have always resonated with the spiritual path and for that I am beyond grateful. Now, I am excited and thrilled to walk into my human path of expressing my Spiritual Being at a whole new level.
Thank you for walking with me and sending me an encouraging smile/hug, note, or dollar every now and them. If you haven’t heard 12 Rebirth yet, I encourage you to tune in and watch the new promo video.
I cannot fully express in words what a gift it is to be a Creative Music Maker right now on this glorious planet. I guess I will have to just keep on writing songs and singing to share that joy!
What an amazing time it has been since 12 Rebirth officially released on May 17, 2019. I am so grateful for all that are downloading and listening and sending me messages to say how it is resonating. It means a lot!!
Here is Track 11 Walk Your Way On Through from the Cape Cod CD release concert captured on someone’s phone.
Here is an interview I did with Bob Weiser at WOMR right after that concert, talking a little about the record and my upcoming time in Cincinnati.
Thank you to all who joined me at the show. It was truly special.
Tomorrow I am heading out for a month of travel away from Cape Cod to share the music, share connection and open myself to more love, more joy and more expansion.
I will be doing a house concert in Western Ma and then Kirtan outside Montreal (my first ever show where most everyone only speaks French). I will be sure to stick to AAAAAUUUUUMMMMM. 😉
After that I drive through Canada experiencing the Alogonquin Provincial Park (it’s an Algonquin Water Song that you hear at the beginning of I am the Ocean),
I will have short stops in Ann Arbor, MI and Toledo, OH and then land in Cincinnati for a couple weeks with my friend Vivienne and family. There is still space in the Cincinnati House Concert July 26 and at the first ever Gaia’s Love Festival on Aug 3, so please consider joining us.
I hope to blog here and post lots of pics and stories on Social Media, so be sure to join me on Instagram and Facebook.
You can also follow me on Spotify (and stream the whole album) and if you’re listening on Apple Music or Amazon, leave a review. It really helps in spreading the music to others.
It’s an extraordinary time to be alive and doing what I truly love.
Thank you for listening and supporting me on the journey.
I can’t believe it’s June 1st. Wow! The May 17 Official release concert in Brooklyn was so fun and it is so thrilling to have this new music out in the world and be hearing back from some of you about what you are liking and what is resonating. Have you heard the CD? Or received it in the mail? Send me a message and let me know how you are listening and what you are loving. Those little messages mean more than you think and help keep me going.
TONIGHT I will be enjoying a beautiful experience at the Harwich Cultural Center with a local group of Cape musicians backing me up. so so fun. Catie Flynn, who sang on the record will be in the house along with her band mates Aaron Mayo and Karl Hoyt. Rich Buck will be on drums which is such a treat.
There will be more to announce in the next couple weeks about dates in Canada and the midwest, but for now, I wanted to say THANK YOU and if you have not taken a moment to tune into 12 Rebirth, I encourage you to. It is available on Bandcamp, Spotify, Apple Music and Amazon (among other platforms.)
What an extraordinary year it has been. As a great author once said,
“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way—in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only.” – The Tale of Two Cities
The tale of two cities, indeed. Which city are you living in? Do you know you can choose, in any moment?
I have learned this lesson over and over again and I am grateful to still be here – ALIVE and THRIVING towards that which I know I am: Love, Sound, Joy – here to serve myself and anyone who chooses to listen. May your true voice arise within you and may you share it with love, power, grace and the wisdom that YOU are incredibly powerful and the world needs YOUR voice RIGHT NOW.
Please join me over for some events over the next couple weeks. TONIGHT for winter solstice. JAN. 5 for the new moon and JUNE 21-23 for an extraordinary experience at Creacon in Ireland.
be still. love yourself. love everyone else. sometimes it really is that simple. And when in doubt, CHANT!
It has been a while since I have visited this space and shared. I apologize. It has been an internal time for me and much is being created. I will be releasing a new Album in the spring of 2019 and I couldn’t be more excited to share the new songs and the new vibration with many many new people throughout the US and abroad.
In the meantime, I am returning to Cincinnati for a concert on 11/10 at my friend Vivienne Gerard’s home and I am so excited to see many of you in person. The amazing news is that Vivienne has created on online portal of light that all can tune into no matter location. I am holding a vibration within this portal and have already shared the chant Asato Ma to open the portal on 11/1 (yesterday). I will also be sharing a chant/musical vibration on 11/11 to close the portal. ANYONE and everyone can tune in by going to this PAGE and joining us in holding a powerful vibration of light for ourselves and all during these 11 days of November.
I am also singing and chanting locally here on Cape Cod for a private NEW MOON event on Nov. 7 at a home in Osterville. If you would like more info, please email me.
And save the dates of Dec. 7 and Jan. 5 for other New Moon chanting events locally on Cape Cod!
Greetings all. It has been a while since I have posted, as I have been in a lot of deep personal contemplation. Sometimes on the journey, as an artist and as someone who chooses to see their journey as a spiritual one, there is the need for an outer silence, as one allows the inner landscape to shift and transform. I have been in such a passage since around April of this year. As you all know the noise in the outer world is quite intense and so I have found a greater need to slow down, be still and allow myself to get very clear about my next steps as an artist and as a human on this earth right now.
The good news is many new songs have come through me and the vibration they hold is one of truth, love, hope, human fragility, the power of connection, and transformative joy. Join me on Aug 31 at the Barnstable Tavern to hear some of them live. I look forward to recording them over the next few months and sharing this new vibration far and wide.
Today, this new moon in Leo feels like a rebirthing and so if felt powerful and true to say a quick hello and let you know I am still here and will be sharing new music very very soon.
In the meantime, please feel to reach out in anyway should you be interested in some live music for an event or a private energy healing session. These are powerful times to be alive and I am grateful for each opportunity to connect in the vibration of love, truth, peace, non-violence and right-conduct.
I share with you one of my favorite tracks from Wise Innocence, Samastah Lokah Sukhino Bevhantu. May All Beings in All the Worlds be Happy and Free!
