I'm so excited to announce that I'll be releasing a new album for children and families this summer. Blue Skies & Sunny Days is a collection of loose & breezy songs that will hopefully make you and your kiddos feel good, even on your cloudy days. And I'm so thrilled that one of my artist heroes, Lisa Congdon, did the album artwork for it. Available August 17!
Hey Friends, I wrote this song after a day of feeling so upset by what's happening in our country. I was also thinking about how children across the country are processing the news right now because I know so many of them are seeing and hearing it. With my own kids, I've struggled to find words to explain how such hatred, racism, bigotry and violence can live and grow inside another human being (who was also once an innocent child). "Beacons of Light" is a response and if you have a child, I hope maybe you'll play it for them. 100% of downloads for this song will be donated to the Southern Poverty Law Center. Huge thanks to Dean Jones for collaborating with me on this one. Sending love and light to you all!
