The songs on this album were all written during an intensely creative period of my life from September of 2009 through February of 2010. I had just returned to Madison, WI after a year in Houston TX. I felt like I was finally home and completely lost all at the same time. Trying to reestablish myself in the Wisconsin music scene was exhilarating but also daunting. My husband and I were trying to sell a house, get settled into new routines and on top of it all, we had been trying for a family for years, unsuccessfully and the weight of it was starting to wear as my biological clock ticked away.


As I look through the track list for this album, I can remember the roller coster of emotions -longing, determination, resignation, sadness, even lightheartedness – that fueled the creation of each of these songs. I pinned a mantra of phrases to the bulletin board in my studio that I would reflect on as I wrote these songs and the word “honesty” was at the top of the list. I literally poured out my heart.


When I went to Paradyme Studios starting in June of 2010 to lay down all these tracks, it was easy for me to tap the emotions as I sang these songs. I was spurred on by Jake Johnson, my producer/engineer as well as the fantastic musicians who offered their stunning creativity to these tracks. And it was amazing to think that my son was growing in my belly the whole time I was recording it! I released this album in December of 2010, rockin’ out on the Majestic Stage, 7 ½ months pregnant. An album with a happy ending… can you beat that?
