Ok, so lately I've been writing again. It’s such an exciting thing when I am able to write. It's not a 24/7 thing for writers like me. Some days the music and words flow like water and on others it’s difficult. It is flowing right now and the feeling is amazing and incomparable. When you can write a good song, you feel like you can conquer the world!

My writing partner and I are trying a different approach with some of the songs this time. Will it work? We’ll see. This time he has sent me some skeleton tracks with a basic groove and wants me to try to vibe with them and add lyrics and melody. On the first song it was instant and the words came to me right away. The 2nd song took me about 3 weeks to catch. So here I am now- I sent the song back to him for him to review with some vocals I put on top. I am waiting for his feedback. I told him if he doesn’t like it I will trash it and start again. I don’t know if he will dig it or not, we will see. I’ll let you know.

We are excited about the next project. It will be a full length album. It will be about 50% Jazz and the rest will be whatever I’m feeling during the next few months. You will hear some Neo Soul, Gospel, R&B, Rock and who knows what else! I’m planning several collaborations. I also plan to use more than one producer this time. It will add another dimension to the project. The fun thing about being an independent artist is that I can do whatever I want. I don’t have to follow any rules that I don’t want to follow. I don’t have to stick with one genre. Yes I am a jazz and soul singer but at the end of the day I am a musician. I am a songwriter, a composer, a trained vocalist, a publisher, a producer. I am always seeking higher mountains and bigger dreams. I AM JAM!
