 Songs for a Challenged World 

I believe that music can cast a spell which transcends divisions, calls out our shared heart and inspires us to be generous, bold, strong and persistent in creating a life-affirming world.

New Release

MAY 24TH

TRICKLE UP

Did you know that US billionaires have nearly doubled their wealth since 2017? And that they received a 57% total gain in their collective wealth since Trump tax cuts?

,TRICKLE UP is about pointing fingers and sharing the wealth. Co-written with Andy Evans, Rob Wright, Chrissie Reynolds, and Pankaj Dave.

 

MOMENTS OF CLARITY

My co-writer, Pankaj Dave and I were talking about our Book of Life, since we both have a number of chapters under our belts.  In trying to convey our experiences, we settled on Moments and the memories and insights they hold.  The cover art for Moments of Clarity is a photo I took near my home at Lake Atitlan, Guatemala -- a place where my Book of Life continues to unfold. 

 I'm All Right, Jack tells the story of  a confident, upwardly mobile man who believed he was better than his co-workers. But then one day, he too, received the email telling him he was out. And then he learned what others had learned before... check it out!

Inspired by my beloved pueblo here in Guatemala, Going My Way is about self-love and living the day.   It was a fun co-write with the brilliant Matt Vincent-Brown.  And also a  break from my social justice songs of this past year..  One critic called our song, "A cup of sunshine for the day."  I hope it will brighter your day too!  Check out the music video on my blog!

No More Wars, Peace & Justice

A song about a perfect day with a seldom seen friend, reminiscing about shared activism for peace and justice.  Yes, even though the world is a mess we can still enjoy each other.  Co-written with Andy Evans.

Flood's Gonna Come, written with the amazing Andy Evans was released April 21, 2023, in honor of Earth Day.

Flood's Gonna Come imagines earth-destroying extractive industries swept away by a human flood 

"Feel the power when we flow together

Now’s the hour, now’s the hour…”✊

JOIN THE FLOOD!

Lullaby for My Friends: In honor of friendship

Song from the Unwanted is a bluesy/folk pro-choice ballad which gives voice to the unwanted unborn and the many reasons women must be free to choose when and if they give birth.

Buzzing Bees (A Song for Earthlings) co-written with the talented guitarist Andy Evans is about our identities and our potential to be at home with all Earthlings.
