Album Notes
“Your Lovely Face" is one of the first songs from my collection of original songs and lullabies that I am adding to my CD Baby artist's page. The songs in this collection are singer-songwriter style with a country-ish feeling and are about love, friendship, family, hope…

“Your Lovely Face” is a song about my grandparents, who had a real life fairy tale romance lasting more than half a century before my grandfather passed away. A few years before this, he had said to me, as is written in the song, that eighty years seems so long until you are eighty and then you realize that eighty years is not that much time after all. When I sing this song, I think about my grandfather gazing at his beloved’s ‘lovely face’ and the love and happiness he found in her.

Music has always played a role in my life. I made up songs and sang to my family and guests as a child, sang in musicals and in a high school choir, in an acapella group in college, had voice lessons and explored songwriting and vocal performance for some years during my twenties…But it wasn’t until I became a parent that music became something I felt called to pursue more seriously.

Although I had decided earlier that singing and songwriting was impractical for me to pursue, I was pelted with ideas for songs when I became a mom — songs that I soon realized were lullabies. So, I began to sing again — and to a real, live audience: my baby. The meaning and importance that these songs had for me was unlike anything I’d ever experienced in music before. As time has passed, ideas for lullabies shifted into ideas for singer songwriter style songs and I’m revisiting songs from my earlier time in music now too. I am also learning to accompany myself on guitar, and although this is an incredibly busy time in my life of family, work, and volunteering, I am having a blast making music whenever a possible moment emerges.

Given my schedule, songs will be released one by one as I am able to record them. There will be some pauses, but I’ll keep singing and writing and recording, so I hope you can be patient with me and more songs will be ready as soon as possible!
