I made it to LA! No small feat, flying solo with my “lap child”, but we made it and we’re here and we’ve been getting some good work done.

Initially I thought we would be mostly working on some a Capella tracks. We have worked on two different all-vocal songs but we’ve been tending to some of the business side of music as well. I’m trying to get all my proverbial ducks in a row for the album release in February (artwork, distribution, promotion, etc). It’s been a pretty exhausting week trying to get things done while dealing with nap times and diaper changes but I’m so happy to do be doing what I love. Peter and I are in various stages of recording three new songs, one that we started writing just two days ago. And this is where I really love what I do- that song began life as a techno instrumental track, took a turn for country and landed somewhere in the country-leaning alternative pop category. I dig this stuff.

There are so many projects I want to dive into, but an album release is so nerve-wracking and exciting and so many things all rolled up into one big anxiety attack that makes you want to laugh. It’s just so BIG. So many things to coordinate and you hope you have the song order right and you named it the right thing and on and on. You pour your heart and soul into this collection of tracks and hope with everything in you that people will hear it.

One day at a time, right?

I need to go. It’s my nap time.
