Thank you to all that continue to extend their support and encouragement even when i take unannounced time away. I'd like to say i'll do better, but no promises will i make. Looking forward to catching up with all those that have been good to me when i can and if i miss messages or new songs, I hope you will be patient with me or kick me in the backside with a message . Take care all! ~ Lace
Traces of Lace . . . a lifeline extended to me by loving friends once upon a dreary time. Never in my life had i imagined ever doing anything like what i'm doing now. Whenever i look at all the songs on this page I still find it all sort of unbelievable and I suspect such an adventure might be a total surprise to those that know me in the real world. So. . . the lifeline has turned into an Oasis where i can express, escape the day to day, and have something for me that i can be proud of. All my collab-mates have given me so much more than i can say.
A huge thank you to kappi of Kloudworks for encouraging my first step on this path with our song 'Type On' back in 2011, and to so many other sweet friends (Nix, Di & Sven & Joe Jaunty particularly) that were there when all began standing at my side, trusting, encouraging and inspiring me with their gifts of music and friendship. I wish i could give and do more. I look forward to leaving more Traces on this world. Thank you for your patience and for reading and listening to my dear friends and myself. Please do visit all involved here and help me give them the appreciation they deserve for those huge hearts and loving spirits of theirs.
