This female artist has played in many bands, some cover, some original, plays and teaches professionally many instruments. She is a vocalist who plays guitar, bass guitar, piano/keyboard, harmonica, and percussion. This record contains recent songs she has written, with all vocals, background vocals, and just about all the instruments being played by her. With years of both professional studio work for other's CD's, and performing, it was time to put some original songs out. From the artist: This record is called Heartstrings because this collection of songs really came straight from my heart; some are angry, pithy, some are free feeling and uplifting. All are coming from a very real place that I was at the time of writing. I think we all go through many things that pull, or push us into moods and attitudes. Sometimes we can't openly express them. Music and lyrics are the perfect way to transmute those things things into something hopefully beautiful and comforting. I have been inspired, moved, and soothed by music my whole life. If I can convey that to anyone in a song, then I am happy.
