life--Relationships, personal growth, searching, growing up
growing old, and songs that tell the stories of others whose paths
she has crossed. She compares her songwriting process to that of
making a quilt. Over the years she has listened to many stories
and had the opportunity to work with people from varied walks of
life. She brings these experiences into her song writing,
creating songs that appeal to a broad audience.
