A Muse in Harmony

The music we make, creates. Medicine music for all.

#tbt ⚑ One thing in my life has been consistent since day 1. Singing. My first love. 🎀
With so many new friends here, I felt it was time for another little herstory.
This pic was my first ever public performance at my Great Grandmother’s nursing home at age 9. It was the beginning of a whirlwind childhood, performing up to three shows a week, often conked out in the back of the car on the way home. 🌌
By 13, at the request of my new producer, I had moved to Nashville and was recording in the same studio as Lee Ann Womack, Jo Dee Messina, Brooks and Dunn and more. 🌠
My early career is what led my parents to homeschool me. I had no time for a conventional classroom or the judgments of my peers in our little Texas cow town. And I made more quality friends, because we met through shared passions instead of simply circumstance.
Had my parents not supported and homeschooled me, I never would have had the opportunities I was so blessed to experience at such a young age. I will always be grateful to them for everything they did (and still do) to make my dreams a reality and to help me excel. πŸ™
These days I pay that same freedom forward to our children by unschooling them, supporting and providing resources for them in their chosen passions. πŸ’« http://ift.tt/2nAeQil

Author: A Muse in Harmony

A stage performer at age 8, a professional Nashville recording artist by 13 and a record deal on the table by 16, I was born to sing. Disenchanted with the mainstream, commercial track I was on, I set my music aside for years until the pregnancy of my firstborn reawakened my voice. Motherhood has been the greatest flint and tinder to my creative fire. Each of my kids have their own special song, intuitively revealed as I carried each of them in my womb. Sounding during the labor of my second son helped me birth his 10 lb. 13 oz. form in half the time of my first, pushing for only 30 minutes. After experiencing the power of singing during labor firsthand, a passion arose in me to help other birthing Mothers do the same. I embrace music from a holistic perspective. Singing is more than entertainment, it’s entrainment of the mind, body, spirit and world as we experience it. All of life itself is intricately composed of vibration (sound) in constant motion. As human beings, each with our own built-in creation tool, our voice, we have the opportunity to create our world anew. Music carries the listener on a journey, an experience unique to each artists’ creation perspective. Our bodies eventually fade, but music lives on and changes lives forevermore. From this understanding, the role of a musical artist carries a great power and responsibility, to be conscious of the vibrations we share with the world. I pledge to inspire, to move people (and mountains) with my voice and music, to share my whole, beautiful and sometimes messy truth each and every moment I am on this sacred Earth, and encourage others to do the same. This life is precious. Only you can be you. Show up in all your glory. Rise and shine.
