For the Artists who create...In more ways than one.

Balancing life's priorities as a recording artist can be somewhat difficult even for the best of them. We have the beautiful labor of love of having to create new music almost daily while being immersed with thoughts of performing regularly in order to share our gifts. Add the spicy ingredient of being a parent as well as an artist and you've just entered a whole new world chock full of challenges that seem to never cease. Fortunately our music, like our children, are a natural expressions of our true essence; and when you are able to be good at both, you get to experience those precious moments when our expression become expressed in their perfect form and this is truly the best times of our lives. Its when our natural expression is lived out in its fullest potential and nothing else in the world at that moment matters. Its moments such as when your voice, music or lyrics brings tears to another persons eyes because they can relate so intensely. Or when your child's laugh and smile or even their intellect is so beautiful that everyone they come in contact with, if only for that moment, is moved to sheer happiness. This is what makes our struggles all worth it. The balance of being a good parent to your children as well as giving birth to your passions in life everyday; This is the stuff life is made of. So no matter how hard the balancing act may become just know that if you stay in the game while realizing what really matters most in life I'm sure in the end you'll have more than enough love in your heart to know that you did good because you did exactly what makes you as well as those who really matter happy as well.
