 "Someone Else's Life" by Gabrielle Louise, Filmed by Teya Cranson

I hope I find you well on this beautiful Earth Day, friends! I'm writing from a beautiful yoga retreat in the woods of CT where I fortuitously found myself for the month of April. I'm happy to be back here on the East coast for a little chunk of time, busy as a bee punctuated by periods of total relaxation. I had a really enjoyable couple of shows last weekend in the DC area, recorded a nice duet and some other songs with Justin Evan Thompson for his upcoming record, and now I'm gearing up for some concerts in this area, the Midwest, and Colorado.

The photo of me is a still from a new video I recently uploaded for International Women's Day. It's a song I wrote about one of my most outstanding and unlikely female friends, Mariana Magnan.  She and I still don't really even speak the same language (my Spanish...well...it's a noble effort to be frank) but we've been able to form an incredible bond anyway over the last five years, due to her patience and grace. She lives a beautiful existence in the southern hemisphere, and has harbored me in Buenos Aires during so many junctures in the meandering decade of my twenties. I can't believe I'm approaching the end of that chapter next month! (Coloradans, I hope you can make my 30th birthday concert on May 16th!)

This video was assembled by miss Teya Cranson. What a talented videographer and radiant person she is! It features the haunting harmony vocals of Melanie Williams and Brodie Kinder, two more wonderful friends who I'm so grateful for.

Comparto una cancion que escribi para una muy buena amiga que vive una existencia hermosa en el cono sur. Mariana ha sido mi refugio durante varias conyunturas de la ultima decada. Esto es para vos, amiga mia...

"Someone Else's Life"
Mariana wakes up before me, and moving lightly 'cross the floor,
she hardly makes a sound as she pulls the curtain down
so I can sleep a little more.

Mariana steps into the morning, Dice "hola" a Luis.
I can hear them on the ground, thirteen stories down,
laughing in the street.

And it must be noon by the time I move from the room.
And it's nearly five when I open up the blinds, let in the light!

I wanna wash up on the shore of him, cause I'm feeling tiny and half-drowned,
but for now I tread time inside of Someone Else's Life,
feels like I'm waiting to be found.

And oooh, but the sea is still And oooh, what do I feel?

Mariana's packing up her memories because he asked, and she's sure.
Now they're fussing over rings, and everything she'll bring is in boxes on the floor.

And I'm trying to recognize that it's not fair to him to come around when I'm feeling torn.
So for now, my heart hides inside of someone else's life, inside of someone else's...

Worlds below me settle slowly into coals.
All the people in the park lifting children in their arms.
It's getting dark.

I want to wrap him up around me, wear him til he's worn.
But for now my heart beats inside of someone else's dream,
and mine is waiting to be born.

sibling session2

This photograph is from a very special recording session I recently had with my youngest brother (far right) serving as engineer. Tim is studying to be a sound engineer at the Art Institute in Denver and I am so proud of what a great job he's doing! He was able to use the school's studio for a day to record a demo of one of my new songs, where my brother Jonathan (far left) played percussion and marimba, and my sister Sarah sang harmonies! It was a really fulfilling feeling to collaborate with my siblings like that. When Tim mixes the track, I'll send out a little link for everyone to check out.

My brother Jon is also hitting the road with me this Spring and Summer for select Colorado dates to play percussion in my live show. I am so excited for this! You'll be able to see him appearing with me in May and July. A full list of what's coming up is at my website, but the more immediate details for Spring shows are below. Dave Kaye will be joining me again for many of these dates, and that's such a delight for me because he's so fun to play with. He'll be bringing along his dobro, mandolin, banjo, electric and acoustic guitars. Wowza! Justin Evan Thompson will play bass and sing some lovely duets with me. This is all just too cool.

Special thanks to so many amazing and gracious hosts this month: Cindy and Saunder De Beer, Rob and Nancy Kaye, Dave Kaye, David Eisner, Cary and Anne Raditz, and Cathy Whelehan. I feel honored to have spent time with all of you this recently, and look forward to future visits and concerts.

Thanks for tuning in! See you at a show soon!
