"I'm not limited by who I've been,
I'm infinite, radiant, transcending from within"
Lalo Hart "Too Much To Hold"
I'm so excited to announce that I've been chosen as a FINALIST for the Telluride Troubadour. A songwriters contest with the Telluride Bluegrass Festival.
Mother and Artista
Do you ever feel like there is a light inside of you and it wants to come out so bad? I do, and have for many years! This light has driven me to seek and has lead me to song.
The songs have been my guide. First sang in forest clearings, to babbling brooks, ocean and sky, starry heavens, roadkill, and flower blossoms. They grew, and conspired with the universe to encourage me to confront fear after fear, deconstructing the myriad of fallacies keeping this light a secret. The songs are my medicine for self love and healing, a gift from Creator, a whisper that guides me to the answer I’m longing for. Anything and everything has permission to be sung! So you can expect I will share just that, a human tale, complete with light and shadow, bursting with expression.
My inner child is ecstatic to take to the stage and steal your ear, maybe even your heart for a bit. You once would have found her in the costume box, spinning her wild imagination into dramatic scenes of song and dance. However, my adult self is quite surprised to see where I am. I thought I’d be a gardener, one of my great loves, and I still consider myself a gardener but I didn’t imagine I’d record music and sing on stage! I guess there is something to be said for allowing yourself to be open to dreams you’ve never dreamed. Like many of us “adulting”, I put the star in the closet and didn’t want her to come out until she could behave appropriately and be liked by everyone…. (HAHA, I'm glad I can get a cosmic giggle out of that illusion now.) I’ll be honest, it‘s terrifying to share myself with you. It’s also electric, BRAVE, and deeply satisfying. I love, honor, and trust I AM ENOUGH, and my light is here to be shared, not kept a secret. I’ve grown to love this vulnerability, it is essential magic for growth and healing. Vulnerability is a superhero, and I’m glad to wear it’s cape!
I believe these songs are here to scatter fertile seeds of beautiful possibilities that may very well help you along your own adventure. They are also here to give voice to our collective stories. Maybe you will feel seen in them and a little less alone in the world. Some songs may land on the listener with a trigger! (Triggers are amazing catalysts for self discovery if we get curious.)
I’m honored to be a vessel for song and continue to grow and share with you. I hope you will remember your light and shine it brightly. The world needs us to believe we are worthy of the gifts seeded within us. Water yourself with compassion, root yourself in divine trust, be energiesed by the light, and unfurl your unique expression!
