Enjoyed spending some time with these cool young folks at the Boys and Girls Club in Denver. So grateful to @tjguardino for inviting me to come be a part of his @notesfornotes program that day! It’s been a while since my near entire audience was kids! I was actually nervous because I wasn’t fully sure what I said YES too! 😃🎶 But they were so fun and receptive! Afterward, a lady working there told me that during the Q&A portion, the girls in the room only asked questions of me but no girls asked any questions of the guy who shared music that day. We talked briefly about the importance of girls seeing womxn in various roles to realize they can do it too. Just felt so lucky to be that woman that day! Thanks again for inviting me, T.J.!!! 🙏🏼😁🎶 #womeninmusic #boyandgirlsclub #notesfornotes #singer #singersongwriter #music #musicianlife #musicislife #kidsarecool #musicforyouth

Patriarchy told her to be a woman suitable to patriarchy - namely demure and compliant. Heteronormativity told her to be someone who fits gender norms, to not be too forward with her leadership qualities as they may be mistaken for bitchiness and arrogance. Purity culture (from conservative evangelicalism) told her to deny her sexual essence, even energetically, which subsequently would depress her creative gifts. Capitalism told her inner artist she’d have to suppress her true expression and cater to current cultural music trends, and play the game, to be relevant or profitable at all, or even create a basic sustainable livelihood.
She has survived nearly 39 years of this and defied much of it. Yet she still, daily, struggles with an undercurrent of self-doubt and even moments of believing she’s a failure. Simultaneously, she feels a greater current of passion, rage, and determination surfacing, rising, stirring - like a mature butterfly, still caught in her cocoon because an unnatural outside force is pressing in on all sides and doesn’t seem to want to let her out. Her wings beat against the walls on all sides: Let me out! Let me out! Let me out! I’m done with these confines. I will not submit. I will not deny the gift I have to offer all who would receive it. My version of this story matters and I - sure as the hell all these narratives have created for me - will write it!

Her magic comes from a far deeper place than you’ll ever be able to fully excavate - every wound and every scar, every passion and every grace. 🧚🏻♀️ You’ll never fully understand, no matter how many hours you talk together, no matter how many stories your share. 🍃 Yet she desperately desires to be truly seen and fully known; so, if she deems you worthy, she’ll risk offering you her trust even before you’ve completely earned it. ✨ Yes, she’ll sniff out your sincerity but to be anything but authentic and vulnerable would be denying her very essence, so she’ll never play you. 🌈 She’ll either open to you or she won’t and you’ll never have to wonder even while resting under the aspen in the shadow of her mystery. #enneagramtype4 #creativelife #journal #thoughts #reflection #fairy #artist #creative #dreadhead #locs #loccommunity

It’s @bengracemusic ‘s 40th birthday, you all!! I’ve been fortunate to journey miles and miles of highway with him and share numerous studio hours with him! I’m grateful to be a witness to his love and passion for music and humanity. Can I get a witness!?! 🙋🏻♀️🎶🥳 If you’ve been following me a while, you know that he’s a true friend and plays a deeply significant role in my journey as an artist and musician too! For example, the #BeingBreathed EP would not exist without his inspired offering to track, produce, and record it while on the road and during his artist in residency in Lyons, CO. For Ben’s 40th, I ask you to check out his music, follow, stream, consider joining his Patreon so he can keep creating, thriving, sharing as he is so deeply devoted to his clear life call to Play▶️Write📝Record🔴Repeat🔁 Song!! When you support Ben Grace, you uplift and extend beauty and justice in our world which, I believe, so deeply aches for it. Rock on, Brother! ✊🏼Thank you for your light in our world! 🌞 I know some of your best days are before you! #singersongwriter #bengracemusic #friendship #collab #music #musician #musicianlife #happybirthday #40 #creative #indieartist #patreon #patron #birthday #milestone
Final Selfie from the Artist Garret I’ve so dearly loved this past year. In a grief process as we‘ve left. Grateful 💓 to have abided in it for a season. We’re technically homeless at this time but gratefully, not unsheltered as we have friends and patrons with extra space for us as we figure out where to next create hOme. I believe that there could be even more beauty and truth in our world if our artists - artist activists, music makers, prophetic poets, poet warriors - could thrive. I’m so grateful for each and every friend and person in my community who believes in me (even when I’ve struggled to believe in myself and find my voice in the oppressive, exploitative systems set up around music and artistry) and you support my work and livelihood. @patreon has been a significant part of that! And I’m so, so grateful to new patrons who’ve come in board this month!! Thank you for putting resources behind the kindly intended words “Keep going. Keep doing what you’re doing. Keep singing....” I’ve heard those words so many times and I certainly appreciate them. It’s the active involvement and support that actually enables me to do that!

It’s an extended edition, an hour and 40 minutes of raw and unedited content, so you might enjoy having it on while you’re walking or cooking or doing something you enjoy while able to listen!!
