“I’m Speaking”

9, Mar 2021

Happy Women’s History Month! Several weeks ago my friend Beth Wood emailed and asked if I would take part in a project she was starting called “She’s Speaking.” They were making a Youtube channel for Women’s History Month and asking songwriters to write about that very topic…inspiring women.  If you know me you know I’ve […]

2020: This is the Way

30, Dec 2020

There will be so many think pieces about 2020. There will be books and series of books about 2020. At the beginning of quarantine when everything, even the air, was frightening, I thought “I don’t want any quarantine art, this is awful.” But! The human condition is one of adaptation, and when you do decide […]

Ugh what a rollercoaster of a month or two. And I’ll be honest, I’m not out on any front lines, I’m not checking anyone out at the grocery store or working in an ICU or desperately trying to convince dumb people to stay home (ok, I do try to do that, but from my couch). […]

To The District!

7, Apr 2020

I got to spend the last worry-free weekend of 2020 in the beautiful city of Washington, D.C., playing music and wandering about with Shawnee Kilgore. D.C. has been one of my favorite cities since visiting for the first time in 2017, I have returned once or twice a year since then. There’s never a shortage […]

Oh Mexico

2, Feb 2020

Firstly I think this is amusing so I’ll start with it up front. Most conversations I have had in the last couple of weeks have been something like: “You went to Mexico?” “Yeah!” “Why? Was it a music thing?” “No!” “So like…you went for fun? Like a…vacation?” “Yes! Like a vacation.” I guess I can […]

MUNA + Maggie

21, Oct 2019

For someone who waited basically since the start of summer for summer to be over, I am sure behind on updating about any of it. The truth is it was 90 degrees on Sunday, October 20th, so summer really had a hard time leaving us. Maybe she didn’t know where to go. Part of me […]

Kickstarter: SUCCESS

20, Feb 2019

My people, we did it. Thank you thank you from the bottom of what was once my cold, dark heart and is now a blossoming. flourishing rainbow heart sprouting unicorns from my chest. Thank you. In 30 days, we raised $16,829 from 253 backers. $16,829!!! I am astounded. We finished this whole thing up on […]

2018 Recap: The End

1, Jan 2019

“I think it’s important that you know that I will never change. But I’ll never stay the same either.” – Taylor Swift I love that quote. It sums up a lot, and 2018 especially. I put off this post due to self-imposed pressure to Say Something of Meaning, especially since I started off my 2018 […]

This is how October made me feel. I slept, but much of it was on planes or for four hours at a time. All of it was fun, though. After going viral (she casually mentions, gripping her phone), I hopped a plane several times (I flew to Phoenix twice in one day thanks to wind […]

October is broken up into parts, because WOW I packed a lot in. Hold on, people. Melinda Ann and I had a second Taylor Swift show to attend, this time in Dallas. As I mentioned before, we bought tickets a whole 11 months prior to this show, and the ticket buying process was so stressful […]
