A recording of my live performance on Saturday, August 23, 2014 at the Creative Alliance, before a live audience.
I wanted to construct and present a thoughtful 9 song-set, that would weave my songs-stories together with my lyrics and melodies and leave a little bit of room for my random (hopefully you'll find them "whimsical") explanations in the moments between singing and playing.
I hope you enjoy this live concert. It was so great to perform before a live audience, but if you happened to be busy that night and couldn't make it out to the show, I've created this download of the the performance so it can live for as long the interwebs does.
I hope you'll take a break, put on some nice headphones or turn on some good speakers and let me entertain you for 42 minutes and 45 seconds. Thank you for your support of my music and thank you very much, always, for listening.

Edited at Wrong Size Shoes by ellen cherry, so she could practice using Pro Tools. Edited for clarity of content and I cut the song ("The Locksmith" where my guitar was out of tune--sorry, maybe next time!)
