A Winter Gathering

Gather here
All that is
Draw breath

A new journey is here... I am thrilled to announce A Winter Gathering, a collection of newfangled holiday carols and original songs.  I never thought I'd do a holiday album but after thinking it through and feeling my way though some of the nostalgic carols, it just felt right.  Sometimes things work out that way.  The ancient and older songs lead me to this world I hadn't really explored, a new voyage to a familiar place.  I thought it was important to give the older songs new breath points at certain moments and that comes in the form of original pieces I'm calling "songscapes".  This work has now taken on a life of it's own and turned into a poignant phase in the music's journey.  Everything from the instrumentation to the recording has been a totally new experience this time around.  Very new ingredients in the pot this time!  Lot's of new elements and sounds.  I hope you will enjoy this Gathering as much as I have.

The album will be released on October 25th and will be available to purchase and download from and all the usual places (iTunes, Amazon, CD Baby etc).

Stay close ~ more treats, including the song listing, new website, new photos and videos, will be revealed in good time!

Thank you for all your support and kindness!

snugs and love,
