Songwriting in 2014 - My beautiful Mess

The challenge of writing music that will matter is that it has ALL been done before. It is hard to find “NEW” in a world that is so noisy. So, some of my favorite “NEW” songs for this CD are actually quite simple. The production is less, the message is focused, the vocal is honest. A good song can be like a reliable car. It sticks with you up and down the hills and you know it so well . . and it just fits you. No one will love everything you create as an artist, but what you hope is that for some, it breathes life into a troubled soul, gives some hope, and inspires someone to get up and keep going one more day. I hope this new CD will be your soundtrack. . for your life, days, moments, and experiences. Make room for me in your playlist this fall. Can’t wait to share it with you guys

One thing I love about being a Recording artist on the internet and also working with #FinalFantasyXIV Is that I have literally made friends ALL over the world. This MUSIC has brought us all together. So when something bad happens, I feel it with you. To all my fans and friends here in the US, in the Paris, London, Germany, Gaza, Ukraine, Amsterdam, Malaysia, Israel, Palestine and more … my prayers are with you. I hope we all recommit ourselves to choose the path that leads to peace when at all possible. It is our only hope. Hate just breeds more hate. Only Love breaks the back of hate. And today, I still choose love.
God Bless you all this Friday, xo suz

There is art everywhere if you know where to look. We forget that in a way we are all artists .  . we just create different things. Good art makes you stop and look, stop and think, even stop and hate. The point is it makes you feel something. Passion is powerful -it is the fuel that drives us to do great things.  “Don’t tell me about it, show me” This is what it means to be an artist. .  When Your passion coming out in something other than a conversation. 
This is a wall mural outside my friends studio in NYC.

The truth is that you will have problems in your life - lots of them. But it is not an excuse to be a jerk, feel sorry for yourself, or give up. Who you are when things are going wrong says a lot about you. It is where our character is built. And in the end, if you let it, it makes you better, stronger, more compassionate, and more appreciative. Roll up your sleeves, pray, and stay positive. You WILL be ok. Hope this inspires you guys today

Mini Blog 31: Yerba Mensa

There is a plant that grows out west called Yerba Mensa.  It is a plant that can live in any environment; extreme heat, extreme cold, drought, and even flood conditions. This plant not only SURVIVES in these conditions, but can actually FLOURISH in these conditions. I love the spirit of this plant.  We complain a lot - when things don’t go how we want, about how hard things are, thinking to ourselves” if only” things were different.  But the key to being an amazing person is not about creating the perfect life around ourselves . .  It is learning to thrive in the middle of the imperfection. Every truly successful person I know has been thru hard times and come out of it stronger, better, and smarter.  Difficulty is unavoidable in our lives. Letting it teach us is a choice we all have to make. We can be bitter or better . .  but not both.
