The CD's on Its Way. Stay Tuned!

That’s my guitar above—at least it used to be. It was stolen from the 13th-century house my husband and I rented in a tiny Mallorcan town in the summer of 2002 (for a belated honeymoon). I’d had that guitar for many years, and although it was very inexpensive, I loved it and still miss it. At least I’ve got this picture, taken in our courtyard shortly before the theft. My latest recording, “Midnight in California,” which will be on Blue Lights, my new CD, was inspired by a British expat in Mallorca, a singer who calls herself Penny Lane. She and I were invited by an Australian couple to sing at a rooftop party one evening. Along with a few original songs, I sang the beginning of the Beatles “You Never Give Me Your Money,” leading into “You Can’t Do That.” My husband, Bob, who wrote the John Lennon bio Nowhere Man, pointed out that it was Paul McCartney’s birthday.

As you can see in the Snocap “store” above, “Midnight in California” and a few other tracks can be downloaded (click on the titles to listen to samples). For now that’s the only place to buy my songs, but in the near future both the CD and individual tracks will be available on CD Baby and iTunes. Soon you’ll also be able to hear the songs on “The Louie Free Show”; click here to listen live to Louie’s show (Mon.-Fri., 3-7 p.m. ET). You can also hear the songs in their entirety on my MySpace page.

Thanks for listening, and check back often for updates!
