Awesome CD release party at Zoey’s!

12th Nov 2009 Posted in: Blog, Momhood, Road Diaries Comments Off on Joy (As Experienced At The FAR-West Music Conference Last Weekend)

It’s a physical thing: kind of down my throat and around my chest. It’s a profoundly satisfied, joyous, relaxed-yet-energized feeling. There’s humor to it. I feel funnier than usual and pretty and worthy and kind of badass. It happens most often in rehearsal, or, as it did this weekend, at a late night jam. (more…)

27th Apr 2007 Posted in: Blog, Momhood Comments Off on So…never mind about SXSW. Let’s talk about Disneyland!

My last post was March 21st, and I promised lots of SXSW lowdown. But does anyone care anymore about my sharp cultural observations (as if they did before)? I want to live in the now.


Here are teeniest little ducks that my daughter Stella spotted in the “ocean” at Disney’s California Adventure. They were literally the size of a walnut.

Here’s a picture of the choir at the recording session for Julie Christensen’s killer song “Rapture Index=0,” from her new album. What a rockin’ song, and it’s going to be a great, very political album.

And, finally, here’s a group shot of the fabulous “Repeat Offenders: Dirty Girls Come Clean” show at Theater 150.

4th Sep 2006 Posted in: Blog, Momhood, Road Diaries Comments Off on Not driving the family insane.

I’ve been home from Austin for a couple of days and am doing a good job of not driving my family insane (“Omigod, it was so fun! I said this, and Mark said this, and then Andy made this joke about Spinal Tap and at night I went to this awesome restaurant, and saw this band, and…”)

What I have been talking about is how profoundly grateful I am to have found my way to Congress House, and how thrilled I am with how good the album is sounding and with the stellar collection of players and special guests. And, most of all, I’m telling how much I appreciate Mark Hallman. He’s putting his heart into my project (which I think is the only way he’s capable of working, since he has so much heart). Thank you, thank you.

So…here’s a list of the awesome folks who are making special appearances on the record: Perla Batalla, Julie Christensen, Sara Hickman, Eliza Gilkyson, Victoria Williams and Andrew Hardin. I don’t know when this album will come out – it depends on how soon I can get a publisher for the book and whether I end up releasing it on my own label (Precipitous Records) or try to make a deal with a smallish indie label. So stay tuned…


26th Aug 2006 Posted in: Blog, Momhood, Road Diaries Comments Off on Beautiful singers on “Beautiful Tree”

Here are a few of the lovely “Beautiful Tree” singers at the recording session in Ojai: Kim Maxwell (making her recording studio debut), Julie Christensen, and my grandmother Kae Herron. The other beautiful trees were JB White, Charlie Bosson, Patty Clarke and Victoria Williams. Jim Lashly contributed telepathically from Big Sur. It was fun and wacky, just as I wanted it to be.

I’m now back in Austin, getting ready to lay down some vocals. More soon.
