The past few weeks have been extremely emotional. In the last few days my father in law was/is in the hospital in serious condition. In fact it is so serious, that the Doc told us to bring everyone in the family home. Its a trying time for my family.

Other things have popped up, but it would take all night to write about that.

Today Nez Perce is the next song to be finished with mixing. Jeff Silverman truly caught the vision of this song. I uploaded it onto MySpace and on my website as well.

Come on by and listen!

More to come...

Songs I am working on...

I am rehearsing for the next song to be worked on. Actually.. there are three that I am working on. First I will write about Nez Perce.

Nez Perce, is inspired by the Nez Perce nation. Its my way of expressing my feelings about their story. For those of you that don't know much about them, I would ask you to visit these websites:

Chief Joseph

Nez Perce Tribe

I first learned about this tribe when in Junior High. My history teacher had us watch: " I Will Fight No More Forever". It was about Chief Joseph and his tribe, how so many things went wrong from the get go when people started settling in the Wallowa Valley. My heart ached, I felt so sad about what happened. About a year ago, I found this movie on DVD, and watched it again. Once again I was touched by their story. Before I bought my first Native American Flute, I composed a song that sang about my feelings about their story. Now I am ready to record it at Sonikwire Studios on July 15th using the Korg as the accompaniment and my Native American Flute as the main instrument. I am so excited to be finally doing this.

I've been searching for someone from the tribe to see if I could get a recording from them speaking Chief Joseph's words in their native language. So far, I have yet to have an answer to my research. I am determined. I know that somehow, I'll find a way.

The other two songs I am working on are A Roses Tale, and Blue Ice. A Roses Tale I am re-doing all the parts from the ground up. I lost some of the files that I had and so I've got to record everything all over again. *sigh*.. BUT I am feeling very inspired that it will all work out.

Blue Ice is completely Korg Synth right now, I am looking forward to having this one recorded. Its the most ambient of the songs from Trillium.

The facelift for my website is coming along quite nicely. I can't wait for you all to see it! Our girls did some of the artwork you'll see on it.

That is what I am up to for the remainder of July.

More to come...

Tangled Up and Carpe Diem are sounding amazing.  Lots of good karma going on in the creation of the music. 

Wednesday, July 2, 2008


Happy July everyone! Hunkering down for this month's insane schedule. I have myself to blame for that.. BUT I like crazy busy. Here is the lowdown:

Carpe Diem is mixed, will work on tweaking it in August.
Tangled Up, is getting mixed.
A Roses Tale is getting remixed - hurry and d/l the copy I have up for free.

My website is currently getting a facelift. I am not sure when the re-launch for it is. Its going to be fabulous. We will have our own download store using my favorite player.. Wimpy Rave! Just keep an eye out for it.

Middle of July, I am recording Nez Perce. I am hoping it all works out. Then IT gets mixed. 5 more songs to get mixed after that. I am sure you all are wondering WHEN the CD gets released. I'll tell ya when I know that with a definite date.

Ah.. one more thing, my website has a really cool widget on the front page. Its a Twitter box. Its a mini blog of sorts.. I can text from my phone what i am doing at any given moment. So you can go by and check out whatever I am doing.. sleeping, doing laundry, umm.. lets see.. working on music! ALSO on my "contact" page there is another widget.. its a shout box. You can visit that page and type a message to me and I'll be able to see it. Its like a little chat box.

OH.. and one more thing... LOL... I'm sure you noticed the new page when you visit my profile and the new photos. I am very impressed how well they turned out. Message me which one is your favorite to go on the CD cover and if I choose what you suggest, I'll send you a free copy of the CD when its released, AND mention you in my liner notes!

Thanks again for the messages, comments and support you have given me. As always..

Peace in Music,
