It's been awhile! I've missed you!! 

Hello, friends!
I know it's been awhile. I've missed you all. Time has a way of getting away from us. Then the days and months roll by as life keeps throwing things at us, taking unexpected turns for the better and the worst. I've been busy raising my family and working my day job as a school bus driver. Now that it's Summer, things have slowed down a bit, but life still goes on.
So, I know this is a music blog...so what's up with the music, you ask? It's been put on a hiatus. Sometimes in life there's things…Read more

Five years and running... 

It's been five years ago this month since I first started my music career online. Do you remember Myspace? That's where I got my start. If it wasn't for the internet bringing the world closer together, I'd still be sitting on the sidelines...I admit, the whole process of getting my career together has been slow, but when you think about all that an indie musician has to learn just to be sucessful, it does take some time. You have to be a "jack of all trades" because you're not only writing the music and…Read more

My other small business 


 For some time I have wanted a way to make money on my own without punching a time clock or worrying about a schedule. I've wanted to start my own home business. After some thought I decided to go to a long time hobby of mine, making friendship bracelets! I learned how to make them when I was in middle school thanks to a friend of mine. I opened an Etsy store back in August called Liv4Friendship. If you would like to support a small business, remember your childhood days, or are looking for a gift for a…Read more

How New Age music changed my life 


New Age music has always been a major part of my life from the time I was 13. It's also been a big part of who I am. The interesting thing is the music found ME before I found IT. I had already spent my childhood playing songs by year and even composing on the piano at home. When I was 13 I asked for a keyboard for Christmas. I figured this way I could play the piano any time I wanted without the disturbing the rest of the family. To my surprise, I did get it for Christmas!  
Playing on my new Casio…Read more

September, 2012: the trailblazing women I follow; new career changes  


Summer kept me busy working and taking care of the family, as usual. I feel like I'm always on the go!! Begin a wife, mom, and working outside of the home full time takes a lot my time and energy. For awhile I wasn't sure if I could pull off trying to start a music career on my own. This is a question that many moms face in their lifetime when they want to switch careers. Many moms question wether or not they can make a career and still take care of their family. I've read about many mothers who left…Read more

June, 2012: Inspiration when things get rough; upcoming vlogs? 

 The old saying goes," When life hands you lemons, make lemonade!" This means you should make the best out of what you have in life when things go wrong. It's important to keep a positive attitude. I know that's so hard to do when things go wrong. I'm struggling right now, which is why I haven't written in awhile. I've been updating my Facebook and Twitter profiles though. 
So...it's Summer!! My two oldest kids, my stepson and his half brother, have graduated from high school! Two kids down, and two more…Read more

April, 2012: A black pianist in a New Age world 

I have found myself in a unique positition. If you look up New Age music artists, you will find that the majority are white males, or whatever their nationality is. Next are white females, or whatever their nationality is. As for me, being biracial, I find myself begin a rare gem in the New Age world. Even if you try to google black pianists, and female at that, you'll only come up with a handful of names. I know, I did it. I wanted to see how rare I was in this vast and growing market of music. Yea, I feel…Read more

March, 2012: Working on music 

Over the weekend, I was wokring on a song that I started writing back in 2004 called Kiss the Sky. It's a slow song, mostly played on the piano. I can't wait for you guys to hear it when I'm done with it!
I also have another song I'm working on that's more upbeat like Realize. I don't have a set name for it yet, but I'm hoping to get it finished so I can share that one with you also.
I'll keep you up to date on what I'm working on, and any new videos I may be putting out in the future.
Til then, keep…Read more

How Whitney Houston influenced me 

 I was going to write my blog post this past weekend and as I heard the news about Whitney Houston passing away, I decided to change it up a bit. Whitney Houston was one of my favorite singers. I own some of her sheet music such as the Greatest Love of All and one moment in time which I learned to play in my youth.  I had her first album on cassette and enjoyed singing along with it.  Looking back on it now, I realize she was one of those artists that didn't try to sell sex appeal. Though she was a…
