Love, Charley

I'd like to think this is a mutual separation, 
but I'm not sure you feel the same.
We've had our share of good times, haven't we?
I've surely grown more than I ever thought I would.
And as hard as it may be to accept,
I know you're going to make someone else just as happy while I'm gone.

Look, I'm not saying we're over for good,
I just need some time to figure things out —
try a different path,
find a new rhythm,
sleep under a bigger sky.
Hopefully you'll be waiting for me when I return,
but whatever the outcome, I love you, NY.

I'm done playing it safe
done apologizing
done thinking twice
done making excuses
I'm done being afraid of myself
and my strength
and my sexuality
and my voice
and my body
and you
I'm ready to free myself
I'm taking the gloves OFF

Fever Ray "When I Grow Up"

I've been meaning to post this for awhile now...

It's a great song and I absolutely LOVE the video
beautiful images, texture and movement 
It inspires me every time I see it

A Successful Session with Grand Staff!

Yesterday I had a great session with Kaleb of Grand Staff. We've been working on this one song for what feels like forever and its been like pulling teeth to finish it. Finally we decided to throw out all our ideas of how the song SHOULD sound and just create something fun. Then it was easy! The melody came and then the lyrics and I LOVE what we came up with. Be prepared though, it's definitely a different sound for me, but it makes me wanna dance y'all! I can't wait to post it : )

Late night @ PIANOS

Last night's set at Pianos was a solo performance. David Baron invited me to play after his sold-out album release show — needless to say, he packed the place. I went on around midnight and after playing a few of my favorite originals, I got to debut two brand new songs, "The Feeling of Us" and "Trip With Me." It was a nice change of pace to fly solo for a night : )
