Socially Distant EP (Download)
"Socially Distant" a small collection of solitary songs is a group of songs that have a common theme. At a time when most of us are being asked to distance ourselves, these songs all reflect the experience of those who have already had to do that.
Don't Turn Away is a plea to not turn our backs on those who are somehow different, whether through gender, sexuality , physical appearance - or even simply nationality. We all share the same world.
The inspiration came from my first novel, "I Am Emily Hedge", where the lyrics play an integral part.
The Hour Before Dawn asks why that known, yet to be known, or once known person isn't with us in those dark hours in the middle of the night.
The Woman Inside is an attempt look at the world of those suffering with dementia, and its effect on the loved ones who see that person change from the inside.
Goin' Back Home simply wants to know how we get there, and where home actually is.
Every song I write has a deep meaning for me, but I want them to be enjoyed by whoever listens. If a song also means something to you, that would make me very happy indeed.
