It has been an interesting few years to say the least. As I reflect upon 2022 as a whole, I am filled with so much gratitude for what I have experienced and achieved.
I have been blessed with the opportunity to work with some of the greatest inspirations I could ever wish for. Don Gatlin, Marilyn Anderson, Mark Elliott, George Forbis, Jamie O'Neal, Jamie Tate, Chris Jones, Karli Chayne and my own husband Raymond Hayden come to mind. And there are many more...
I am excited to continue this collaboration journey in 2023, with more music to record and more co-writes and collaborations to do. I am especially excited to be putting out more music alongside Chris Jones as the Redneck Files and with my husband's band Grieve The Astronaut.
As I make my plans for 2023, I will be taking a break from playing as many live shows, and spending more time in the studio and in the writing room. The reason for this is all about following my heart.
As we grow and evolve our likes and dislikes change and expand. Mine have gravitated more towards the creation of music as a product. From writing the song to seeing it journey into the world and into the hearts of my listeners. I'm not saying I won't ever play live music again, there is a beautiful connection between an audience and the instant creation of art on stage. But for now, this is where my heart lies.
I look forward to expanding my connection through social media and also having more time and energy to connect with my supporters on Patreon.
From my family to yours, Happy Holidays and best wishes for 2023!
