Big week coming up… Simon Cowell’s new X Factor auditions in Miami. Registration on Wednesday and hopefully audition Thursday. I say hopefully because not everyone who registers and spends 2 days at the facility gets to audition. Understandable after hearing that 15,000 showed up in Los Angeles. I actually submitted a 1 minute video to a local television station here to try to win a “Front of the Line Pass.” The winners were spared the registration day and would be among the first to audition on Thursday. I did not win. Damn. Thousands of people… I watch it on Idol and sitting in the comfort of my bedroom, I think it’s a phenomenal process but not one I look forward to participating in. But, as my niece said, “It’s just 2 days out of your whole life.” It might even be fun. I’m not trying to convince myself, really. I think it’ll be an amazing, colossal experience, operative word being “colossal.” So please let my temperamental voice and questionable nerves be on my side on Thursday.

I also learned last week that America’s Got Talent is accepting video auditions till April 10th, and unlike X Factor’s a cappella one verse/chorus, their submissions can be 2-3 minutes with music so perhaps I’ll have a better shot. Oh, if I only had a band!

So I’m going for it all. Of course with my CD almost ready to be released, ANY air time would be incredible, so with this synchronicity it kinda feels like SOMETHING is supposed to be. But whatever happens will be fine. I do know more energy from you all can only help and I thank you in advance. Please wish me luck, say a prayer, send good vibes, whatever your preference, and I promise I’ll do my best.

And thank you all so much for the encouragement and support over the years. I’ve been blessed with more performance work and opportunities than most and I’m completely grateful for everything. As an entertainer I know I’ll see many more smiles, finger poppin’ and dancing feet when the gigs start ’cause the tracks are smokin’! Can’t wait for you to hear! See you soon.

Love & kisses & hugs,

The more old friend/musicians I reconnect with on Facebook, the more I try to remember and find. This past weekend after looking to no avail for the first guitar player I ever worked with, I let it go. Today I received an email from MySpace with a message from him! Now this is a guy I haven’t seen or communicated with in over 30 years. Our very first gig in 1972 was at the Old Port Inn in Avila Beach, California with Doug on electric guitar and me singing through his amp. Ah, the good ol’ days.


Although you can only see pieces of his guitar & a bit of his beautifully long & blond hair behind me, the picture is from a 1973 gig with him (& my bro on drums) at Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo, the birthplace of my musical career. He painted as well and the fabulous JBL speaker cabinets (de rigueur for the day) reflected his artistry.

Once again the powers of the internet, synchronicity and Godincidences abound. Seek and let it go and enjoy the magic, not always 2 days later but it will come.


Coincidences in my life? I think not. Specifically, my CD will finally be finished within the month, and the synchronicity of very recently reconnecting with so many wonderful musicians, friends, family, artists and very special coworkers from the past on Facebook is no accident or coincidence. As my husband would say, they’re clearly Godincidences. I’m so ready to share my music with the world, and to be able to start with my own beautiful & expanded network first is so extraordinarily perfect. But perhaps it’s not quite so extraordinary and rather simply how it’s supposed to unfold. The making of the CD has taken a year longer than we’d hoped. But apparently God had a different and more effective timeline, albeit admittedly not always effortless for me to accept. However, it seems if you do the work everyday, accept the time frame and then let God do the rest, it’ll be exactly what it’s intended to be.


The stars are aligning.  The snail has left the building.  Had a breathtakingly beautiful meeting today and we decided that my birthday, 9/11, would be the release date for my CD!  Is it possible?  Absofreakinlutely.
