Tranquil Buzz Coffee House, 300 N Arizona St, Silver City, NM 88061

I love the Tranquil Buzz venue--a true listening room! This will be a special and unique show from me--with a distinct theme: "The Landscape of Love". Driven by my own original songs. Here's a description: Love is a vast landscape we travel through over the course of our lives. Sometimes alone, sometimes with another; coming together, entwined, parting, longing, avoiding, reminiscing. Happiness, sadness, union, challenge, gratitude, friendship, reminiscence! Through original songs woven together with storytelling, we will explore the light, shadow and nuance of this exquisitely varied landscape. No preaching or teaching, just using art to touch hearts. Wherever you are at in your past or present experience, my intention is that you find this show meaningful, enjoyable and encouraging. And worth the journey!

Thanks for coming to my website. It could be fancier, but I think it does the job!

Here's a music video,  filmed in Hawaii, featuring one of the songs on my most recent CD. This one is called "The Tide".



I feel quite blessed to sit beside the beautiful wellspring of Music, to write songs and to have the privilege of performing them (live or recorded) with and for others. I hope you enjoy visiting my website!
