No More Monkeys Jumping on the Bed

My husband has cancer.

Nope. No joke. The most commonly asked question I get these days is "where have you been?" or "when are you going to play again?" I know. Even I anticipated getting back on the scene by now. I even had a gig or two set up for late summer.

But... life has thrown me yet another one. About a month ago my husband was diagnosed with a rare, aggressive form of non-hodgkins lymphoma. And, of course, that changes things.

If you're interested to read the details, you can find them on my personal family blog. I know, I know. I get lots of people concerned about my giving such personal information on my music site. But, you know what? My music is personal. Singing is personal. Songwriting is very personal. Everything about my music and performing is more personal than many people get even in day-to-day interactions. So... I figure as long as I don't get any crazy fan stalkers, no harm in sharing (Hey, you two fans that I have left after all this time, no stalking! k?)

As Heard on Mormon Stories Podcast

One of my hymn arrangements has recently been featured on Mormon Stories and Mormon Matters podcasts. Thanks to John Dehlin for the plug! :) Since you're all beating my door down, here's some more info:

"Nearer My God to Thee," as arranged and performed by yours truly is included on a soon-to-be-released hymn compilation by my brilliantly musical brother, Clayton. You can pre-order the CD and hear samples of his other tunes at his website, I highly recommend checking it out.

You can hear/download my song from the podcast at my website under 'music' then 'live recordings,' or just click here)

...Till the Fat Lady Sings

So I haven't played out much lately. I've been asked about it by various fans, so I figured I'd better enlighten the masses.

The fat lady sang. And now... well... she may not be so fat, but she's a little busy.

Never fear. We'll pick it up again soon. Meanwhile, I'll be working on the lullabies, I expect. :)
