Is Anybody Listening in 2017?

Oh my! Here we are in the New Year, and it’s hard to believe that we are already a month into 2017.  Where does the time go?  Where DID it go?  Where did 2016 go?

There are an infinite number of answers to those questions.  For me, however, 2016 was defined by three words:  “Is Anybody Listening?”

Spring Renewal: A Walk In The Snow

Spring 2016b

I love the renewal that comes with each season.  I especially love the sense of rebirth when Spring starts to show her beautiful self to us each year.

Renewal always signifies to me the opportunity to start fresh, get a clean slate, do some “spring” cleaning, and clear out all of the cobwebs.

This line of thought always leads me to thinking about life here on earth and its continuous cycle of change as expressed in nature.  That, of course, leads me further into more spiritual realms until finally, it makes me stand still and face the concept of life or … Life with a capital “L”.

So … Life.  (more…)

David Bowie and the Six Degrees of Separation

David-Bowie-Coloured-Painting

In pondering David Bowie’s passing this week and celebrating his life and work with the rest of the world, I’ve been reminded of my own David Bowie story — my David and Iman story – with its six degrees of separation.

Do you know the theory of “Six Degrees of Separation”? Wikipedia defines it this way: “Everyone and everything is six or fewer steps away, by way of introduction, from any other person in the world, so that a chain of “a friend of a friend” statements can be made to connect any two people in a maximum of six steps.”

My David and Iman story definitely proved this theory and it’s a sweet memory with a great lesson: (more…)

Fall 2013 Update

Fall-2013-Update-Composite
To My Readers on this Thanksgiving Weekend:

I could not be more grateful for each of you!  And for all of the good, all of the music, all of the shared thoughts and communication — and all of the inspiration!  Thank you for sharing in this universal language of music and ideas!  If you did not see it before, here’s my Fall Update newsletter:
==============================================

Fall 2013

Dear Friends!
As we approach this season of thanks, I am reminded that “Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.”(Melody Beattie)  With this in mind, I send you news of what I’ve been doing, the joy and fulfullment it has brought, and the excitement of seeing many of you in my concert tour around the country and beyond in the coming weeks and months!

DeepWaters_Booklet_1_4New CD:
This past summer flew by at the speed of light, and I can sum it up in 2 words:  Deep Waters – my new CD.
A suite for orchestra and voice, composed by Peter Link, it contains 3 songs and 4 instrumentals — and it’s a gapless (continuous play) CD.  Click HERE to listen, download, and get the free digibook (digital liner notes).

Spring 2013 Update

Blog newsletter banner
To My Readers:
Just as we head into summer, I give you my Spring 2013 Newsletter.  It’s a snapshot update from January to April.  This was delivered as a newsletter to my email list and never made it on to my blog.  Please forgive this apparent neglect. Life got going fast with touring, recording and major shifts at my parent company, Watchfire Music.  I found myself in deep with it all!  So here’s a catch up of what’s been going on.
Coming up next: New CD, DEEP WATERS, to be released June 11th
and a blog article on … applause!

April 2013

Boston CelebratesDear Friends! With the events of Boston so fully on our minds, and of Waco, Texas,too, I begin this newsletter with a song for you. Here’s an anthem of profound peace and unconditional love, When He Walks With Me by Grammy Award-winning songwriter Julie Gold. Just click here to listen and share with others. I hope it brings new inspiration to your day!

spring100Has spring swept you off of your feet yet with warm breezes? Here in NYC, in between 40-degree days, Mother Nature keeps throwing us little bursts of the warm weather to come. I can’t wait for it to officially arrive! But I can’t complain, either …

JW.sspd3sm100… I’ve recently been on the road a lot, concertizing in some beautiful tropical places in between all the cold and storm. The first quarter of 2013 was filled with great music and diverse, wonderful audiences in diverse, wonderful places. Click here to check out where I’ve been: Notes from the Road: First Quarter 2013.

A Gift of Music for The New Year

Offering-a-gift-sized-725x301

Happy New Year, Everyone!

My immediate family lives a big city block away from Times Square. We live in apartments nearby with the ability to see little slivers of Times Square from our windows or balconies.  But, it’s not what we can see.  Rather, it’s what we can hear:  the roar of the crowd.  Because we can hear it, I can attest to the fact that the ball DID drop, and here we are in 2013!

As we move out into this beautiful New Year, I offer you a gift from LAST year.  And it really is fitting for THIS year:

It’s the gift of music. I understand music to be immortal, transcendent, healing, ageless and timeless. It’s power, though felt in the moment, carries on way past the actual performance, especially when captured, as it was on Christmas Eve, in a podcast.
