I just released this new lyric music video for my song Consent. Many women have had experiences with men they actually really liked and cared about, who pushed or rushed us. I wrote this song as a musical dissertation for my future beloved.
My sweet violin, Muddy, has come home to me at last after a long month at the luthier’s! I hadn’t been a day without her since I fell in love with her warm breathy tone 21 years ago!!

Sweet sweet creature … these muddling pains caused by the world drive us to find our home within, and express it outwardly, so our inner suffering doesn’t build cobwebs in the corners of our shadowy places.
I used to sing and play violin for an awesome conscious hip hop band called The Luminaries. There’s normally a live 4 piece band, but the MC’s came on tour to Maui with trax, and they rocked it just as hard! It was great to bounce off of them again and merge force fields. I…
