Thanks to Martial Gille on Facebook, it was brought to my attention that the French people voted me #3 Artist of the Year 2010 in ROCK N’ FOLK magazine – just below ROBERT FUCKING PLANT ZEPLIN! what an absolute honor. despite my lack of muscle in the management, label and business divisions on this last OOOM chapter, the listeners, both music journalists and music fans, have been more supportive and receptive of my work and music than ever before!!! this is a sign of being on the right path. YOU are the ones who know, the ones who bring the music home, into your personal lives and homes, who allow me to be part of the soundtrack of your lives. THANK YOU very very very much for this.
it has been a very hard couple of years of reinventing and searching for the answers to these haunting questions:
“how do i continue to make music with my life”
“how do i learn to run a business that is built on emotional honesty and artistic integrity, NOT on business”
“how do i survive these changing times”
“how does a woman grow into maturity in both her personal and creative life”
“how do they fit together? how do the wrestle with one another?”
“how does a woman in the arts age gracefully and remain relevant to the public”
“where are my role models”
“how can we join together to lend wisdom and support one another”
i don’t expect you know the answers, i know i will find them out as i go, and will document them in many forms. my blog, my music, my visual work, my relationships, my projects and in the way i live my life. may we learn from one another.
thanks for stopping by virtual home today,
merci au FRANCAIS & ROCK N’ FOLK for your support x o x o x
