Rain drummed, children shouted, and the chord of G minor filled the room. Side by side at the piano, two cousins wrote a song. After piecing together the various ideas and adding in some lyrics, “Guilty Rain” was born. I’d love for you to take a listen!
Hello, How has your week been going? I’d love to share a song with you that I’ve only recently discovered (thanks, Mom and Dad!). It’s called, “If You Want Me To” by Ginny Owens. The song is jazz- and folk-sounding, and the lyrics are full of deep thoughts and wonderful reminders. I hope it encourages you. Thanks,
Hello! How are you? We’re in Hungry Horse, Montana. This morning, we went horseback riding on a trail ride. (I found the ride rather ironic, because my horse, Waylon, kept eating along the way. Get it — Hungry Horse?) 😀 It was a wonderful experience. I would love to share a song I wrote with you, called “Through The Door.” It was written in the camper using Micah’s guitar, and […]

This song was one of my first attempts at a broadway-type song, with wacky chords and a wide melody range. I had a ton of fun writing it, and even made a […]
Hey, Folks! What’s your favorite thing about this week so far? When we were camping as a family in Texas, I bought a ukelele to use as a small and portable (and adorable!) instrument. I have found it to meet all of those requirements! I’d love to share a song that I wrote with it, called “Everybody Needs A Uke.” The song was written in about thirty minutes, because I basically recorded […]
My cousin Claire and I wrote this silly parody using an ingenious game she created. She drew two papers out of bag filled with options, one with a Christmas song and one with a topic. All that was left was to put the two together. Here’s what we came up with! We hope it brings a smile to your face. 🙂
Hello, dear readers! How has your December been going? This quick and wacky post is composed of a few Christmas-y things I wanted to share, jumbled together in a holly jolly pile of miscellanea.
This is one of my most favorite broadway songs–I adore the lively lyrics and memorable melody, and would love to sing it for you!
