RINGS AROUND SATURN - #3 Album, #3 Artist, #6 Song, on International Folk Radio!
As if the glowing reviews of my solo debut album were not enough (see more on my website at 'Reviews, Radio, Recording') according to data compiled by Folk Alliance International, the album had a fantastic launch in July, hitting #3 for both the top album and artist categories, and #6 (and #12) for individual songs in the top rankings. All pretty heady stuff and I know I didn't accomplish this on my own. It couldn't have happened without the help of so many including my bandmates, Jane and Donna, my extended musical family of contributors and collaborators (see the liner notes!), my wonderful studio, Cambridge Sound, and of course most of all, my friends, family and fans who inspire me to keep creating. THANK YOU!
