KSBR 88.5 Jazz FM

This morning I spent some time with DJ of the Morning Breeze. We totally enjoyed ourselves and chatted as usual. I want to thank her for taking the time to talk about Trillium and play Carpe Diem and Dancin in the Clouds and playing them on the air.

I did come on earlier than planned today. So if you missed it, sorry about that. There will always be next time! :)

I am feeling quite blessed by Jeff Oster, Seay, Heath Vercher, Jeff Silverman, Jim McCarty, Sonikwire Studios,my family with the creation of this album. I wish I could express my thoughts in words, however I tend to express myself better musically. Trillium is that expression!

Wishing you all a wonderful weeek!

Some things you should know...

I am in the middle of editing Tangled Up.. and decided to take a quick breather to update you on some things.

On Sunday June 22, 10am Pacific - 11am Pacific, I'll be on KSBR 88.5 Radio, the Morning Breeze Program with DJ Thornton. I hope you will tune in here:


I am in crunch mode to finish the tracks for Tangled Up, so that on Tuesday June 24, Jim McCarty, Randy Landas will be putting the drum/bass line in. Looking forward to that.

After that.. the rest of the songs will be set up for mixing. Nez Perce will be recorded in July at Sonikwire.

I want you to know I now have Tania Elizalde on board as THE graphic artist extraordinaire for Trillium's artwork. She did the artwork for Heath Vercher's CD "Soul Fire".

Tania Elizalde

Thanks to you all for your support, emails, messages. I definately enjoy hearing from you and your support means so much to me.

More to come...

If you will indulge me...

I am reminded every once in a while that I am a Mom of 4 kids. Today was one of those days.

I got up about 6am, walked with a friend of mine. I came home.. and realized we had a full day ahead of us. Piano lessons at noon, and two doctor appointments for the boys. The lessons were fun, as I take the boys to the park and let them run amok. The girls have their lessons and we were there for an hour and a half. Its so nice to let the boys burn off energy! Then we hauled it over to the doc office.

All of the kids were with me, the two boys were getting check ups, our 5 yr old was getting 4 shots, and our 7 year old was getting his Varicella vaccine.

I thought that since the younger ones had run around, that they would be mellow. HA HA HA.... I am laughing at the experience because they were crazy. Not only were the boys in rare form, the girls were a bit squirrely. The boys... oh man... talk about "entertainment". Dr. Pittaluga was dying laughing at their antics. I could only smile and laugh too.. as its just such a typical day with them even more so today. They were showing off at what they could do. 5 yro would say ( when testing his hearing he could hear the beep) " I hear the wax moving along in there!" LMBO! Then we had to tell her about the McFly dance. We have this nickname for our 7 yro son... and its McFly. He proceeds to do this dance when we call him that. Its very menacing, full of music and sound effects provided by him of course. I am turning red as he does this. 5 yro son NOT to be outdone.. is trying to climb up out of the window.. by climbing on his 14 yro sister.

Finally, its time for immunizations. I neglect to tell 5 yro son, that they will poke him with a needle to give him a shot. He ends up waling at the top of his voice, and I calmly explained to him.. I forgot to tell you they do that when you get a shot. He looks at me and says, I am NEVER coming here again and WHY did they poke me for?!!. My bad. 7 yro son knew what was coming, he didn't EVEN flinch. Didn't cry. I was shocked.. he's the one that usually melts down. *sigh* The intern was the one that gave him his shot, that was amazing in itself.

I took all of them to a local frozen yogurt shop for being somewhat good and that seemed to help our youngest son forget about the HORRID experience.

I could write more.. but I don't want to embarrass my children too badly! lol... I just could NOT let this one go away without blogging about it.

A Roses Tale

You can download A Roses Tale for free on MySpace page. You can click the title of this blog and it will take you to my profile and you can download it! : )

June is here, Carpe Diem is the next song to get mixed, A Roses Tale is due for a remix. Tangled Up gets drum/bass tracks. I also will be getting new photos. Its been since 2005. So I guess its time to get some new ones done.

Nez Perce is going to get recorded in July. My new flute is amazing. The sound of it is pure bliss!

Blue Ice, InSync, Trillium, Nu Beginnings will be the next songs I'll be working on to get mixed. Midnite and Nantucket will be worked on in October. I'll tell you more about that later on.

Thank you for your support!
