Happy Valentines Day! New track + Giveaway!

Happy Valentines Day! New track + Giveaway!

LOVE DAY IS ALMOST HERE!!

Well, we’re already a month into 2020 and it flew by… more restrictions but not creatively! I’m excited to share that I recorded a little love song called Walk With Me- a special piece of music with a story based on an old Irish song which dates back to the Jacobean rebellion. It’s about a woman who is heart broken that her lover has gone to fight in the war but that she wishes him well. So to me, it’s about giving your partner freedom in love and I think that’s beautiful. I imagine she’s inviting him to come back and join her.

We shot the music video at the Telemark Nordic Club in West Kelowna, a beautiful winter sports club here in British Columbia. It was stunningly beautiful, with snowflakes falling on us- and the suprised look of some skiers coasting by! I was so glad to have the whole family there- we all went out and had a fun day, and a fab team as well- thanks to:

Stephanie Lucile Photography, Uncorked Films and Jenny McKinney Makeup Artistry!

What’s going on here? Well…..I’m not sure about getting into this dress in the freezing cold!!!

Kissed by the Moon- Special Edition- OUT TODAY!

Kissed by the Moon- Special Edition- OUT TODAY!

Happy Mother’s Day World!!

I’m so excited to share that today, Kissed by the Moon (Special Edition) is now available! I created the first edition of this album before I become a mother, dreaming of peaceful nights with my tiny little arrival! I had no idea what was in front of me! It’s been a wonderful, amazing journey but also a learning curve teaching me patience, endurance and unconditional love. Now a mother of three, I was completely inspired to write something new for all my little ones, and for them to know I had them ALL in mind when I wrote it! From classic lullabies, to some not so classic lullabies from different parts of the world and some originals as well, this is the most relaxing music I have ever recorded! I hope you enjoy it as much as I did creating it. Check it out!

*The original album was completed at and sponsored by OCL Studios, and the special edition track was produced by and co-written with Mike Sands.
