my new band ‘cloudlight’ on Bandcamp’s front page!

cloudlight -Front Cover - ArtHello friends!

Just a quick note to tell you I’ve been in a whirlwind of activity lately… but the most exciting thing to happen to me these days was that my young band ‘cloudlight’ was recently featured OUT OF THE BLUE on’s FRONT PAGE!

Including this review:  “Lovely and delicate songs from Michigan band cloudlight, full of angelic vocals and barely-there instrumentation.”

We’re over the moon and blown away, and just sooooo grateful for the sudden influx of listens and attention.  I’m really proud of this little album (EP really, 7 songs).  It releases in 2 days actually!  And you can hear 2 tracks, and pre-order the whole thing HERE:

Please share with anyone you know who likes chill music with dark but sparkly vibes!

I’d also like to say, to anyone sending me good vibes these days, I really am soooooo grateful for all the new and inspiring opportunities lately…from our first official house show (where I performed as both Jessica in The Rainbow, and with my new band ‘cloudlight’), to radio spots, to a benefit for Amnesty International, to performing at The DAAC in Grand Rapids – an all-ages space with a rich history, to being part of a 2-stage festival at Unruly Brewing and being accepted to play at Earthwork Harvest Gathering (Sept 15-17!) for the first time (with ‘cloudlight’), in addition to handing off the festival I co-founded, Ladyfest at the Lakeshore (coming up soon, Sept 30th in Muskegon Michigan!), to a wonderful event organizer based in GR so I can focus on music and managing all of these many projects (not listed: more house shows in the works + another fest, pending gigs, kids’ music, library gigs and tours, camps, my piano & songwriting studio and mentoring opportunities, and more).

Thank you all for being a light in my life.  I hope to continue being one for you as well 🙂 ❤
