Boy or boy, am I a lucky girl! Yesterday I started recording some tracks with Trevor Finaly, a blues artist from Canada who has moved to Nashville. He is one fine player and thoroughly entertaining as a sidekick writer to my eccentric writing style. Trevor and Josee, his manager, paid a visit to my funky artist pad here on the river in Nashville and together with my Patrick we began recording a new tune which you will all love. I'll post it to myspace in the next week or so.
What I love about working with Trevor is that he has an infinite amount of ideas and he is an exceptional guitar player, too. He can sing the heck out of a blues tune and his own set of songs carry you away == you just get lost in the music. Collaborating on this latest project has been really expansive for my artistic soul. Today I will be singing the song. Right now, I'm working on the drums and percussion. Then on Wednesday, Trevor will come back to the studio and we'll lay down his vocals and lead guitars. We're also going to add a burning fiddle track and some piano. HOT!
I hope all of you are out there following your dreams no matter what. Remember that even in this super tough economy, you all have your God given gifts as precious, gifted souls with an abundance of love and intoxicating purpose. Lift up your hearts and forget about the money. Yeah we all need some and it is scarce, so enjoy the little things that give you extreme pleasure and get lost in those little things that are so very big...like the coo of a baby, the antics of a silly pet, the loving gaze of your lover, the food on your table, the love of family and friends. Throw a party and have a pot luck dinner called "Up Your Luck" instead of Down on your luck.... invite everybody you know to your house and break bread together and enjoy the companionship. Play great music and play fun games like Pictionary...and Life or Twister. Let's get back to the basics and enjoy the little things.
U R AWESOME!
