2017 First Harvest – Resistance, Persistence, March For Truth, “A New Way” studio ALBUM out by end of year! 

2017 has been a busy year of active resistance, relentless persistence, and divine timing – am excited to share that I just received the final mastered copy of my long-awaited “A New Way” studio album and will release it to the world by the end of this year! 

After the powerful #womensmarch in January, the first half of 2017 was focused on activism, leadership in spiritual retreats such as Cross Pollinate in LA & Gaia Grove in Baja, Mexico, and partnering with new colleagues at The Hollywood Bowl, all the while writing music & performing. However, my heart still ached for the lost files from my studio sessions over the last decade, trying again to recover files from crashed hard drives to no avail… (or so it first seemed…)


In June, I was honored to be invited both to share my own music and give a speech on the steps of Los Angeles City Hall at the #MarchForTruth LA alongside Congressman Brad Sherman, Congresswoman Maxine Waters, and numerous other inspiring activists, community leaders, and artists. I shared my experience as a musician running for local office and winning, eventually becoming Co-Chair of the Silver Lake Neighborhood Council, and reminding everyone to get involved on the issues that matter to them, while making sure to take time for self-care and recharging. It was a powerful day of action and activism with sister marches around the country and world, and I look forward to more to come! 


Then, at July’s new moon, I refocused efforts on finishing my studio album, & thanks to excellent partners at 4th St Recording in Santa Monica, we finally revived all the sessions I have been recording since 2009! Combining newer songs along with the larger project suspended in time has resulted in “A New Way” coming to life, albeit in quite a dramatic and unexpected manner, and I look forward to a worldwide release this fall.

dear friends ~ have been dreaming for many moons that our beautiful planet Gaia generates her own water somewhere from deep within the core, meditations & music writing lead me to this all the time ~ and for the past several years, when I do deep grounding, I always connect to WATER at the center of the Earth ~  well, found this!

“It’s good evidence the Earth’s water came from within,” says Steven Jacobsen of Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois. The hidden water could also act as a buffer for the oceans on the surface, explaining why they have stayed the same size for millions of years.

Jacobsen’s team used 2000 seismometers to study the seismic waves generated by more than 500 earthquakes. These waves move throughout Earth’s interior, including the core, and can be detected at the surface. “They make the Earth ring like a bell for days afterwards,” says Jacobsen.

“Between The Ice and The Ocean” & “A New Way”
recorded live on Summer Solstice, 2010 ~ SoCal Music Expo

“it begins with the sunlight
gleaming crystalline
first a drop forms
finally a stream
between the ice and the ocean
there’s a growing rising tide
forming unseen rivers”
