"Rain on Bare Skin"





Hello My Family & Friends!


I hope this finds you all well & wonderful & finding little glimmers in the good things that fall in our paths.

Sometimes the glimmers are those around us who lift us up & sometimes its realizing we managed to move on after a fall. Sometimes glimmers shine in the smiles of strangers…

 I cling to those Glimmers & I Give Thanks constantly.

And I particularly give THANKS to All of You for being part of my world. For helping me to continue to be an artist & writer. It means so much!

 I guess I should move on to the scoop... I’ll try to be brief, but as Y’All know, I’m not always great at that… (but Im working on it;)


First of all... Huge apologies for being so invisible, but I’ve been up to my eyeballs birthing a new CD!

So I’ll share that news & I have some concert information to pass on as well.


Heeeeeeere's whats up!





1~ My New Shiny CD!

I am just kissing the sky! “Rain On Bare Skin” is HERE!


Because SO many of you urged me to record a new instrumental CD & because my dear friend & Musical Bro Tom Prasada-Rao was suddenly available to come to Florida & record, it happened all so quickly, AND it’s actually DONE! (fastest birth EVER!;)




Folks are thankfully loving it

(I’ve had to restock at CDBaby twice!)

I’d love for you to give it a listen (you can just listen to snippets here without buying) & if you like it, you can actually purchase it at this link & “take me home with you;) “ via download, or you can buy a real CD!



Like “Winds of the World” which was recommended by RN magazine & used by yoga & massage & wellness practitioners (& Lovers;), it’s an hour long~ all instrumental, blissfully mellow float. Each cut has a Native Flute. (North American Indian, Slovakian, Andean panpipe, bamboo…) I also play piano, ducimer, tiple, chimes & bells & tunes crystal glasses. Tom is masterful on violins, string bass & sitar!Here’s the link… You can also read a bunch about each cut here.



You can also check out my other recordings at that link too.


If you live in the Pine Island/Matlacha Island area of FL, they’re available at NetShops USA which is that cool little shop as you enter the islands on the left where Brittany the Bobbing Mannequin with the SwizzleStick sign on her belly button lives & waves!


Again~ I am SO SO GRATEFUL to you all for urging me to record this CD.


(& FYI~ “Ride The Sky” is still being played on SiriusXM Radio! Yay!)




2~ Concerts



I’m honored as always to be returning to perform & teach at some of the most prestigious venues in the country. Gratitude Gratitude!!!

Hope to see some of you there!


Info & links are below. My exact times to teach/perform aren’t all avail at this minute, but I’ll post to my website when that info comes in! HUGE Muchisisisisimas Gracias!
