What do Jane Austen and Alanis Morissette have in common?

This parody video! New SongBird "Dear Darcy" a parody of Alanis Morisette's "Unsent." 

Every hero has a fatal flaw, including are favorite literary boyfriends, the leading men of Jane Austen novels. In this song I imagine what their ex-girlfriends might have to say about them. Comment on the channel and let me know what you think! 

Songwriting 101!

In Episode 3 of SongBird, I give a basic tutorial on narrative songwriting, that is, telling stories with songs. If you've ever though about writing a song, but didn't know where to start, I break down the parts of a song and how they fit together. 

Want to know how I go about writing some of my songs? Ready to start creating your own? Take a look!

First Episode of SongBird!

My latest project is a YouTube channel featuring my original music! The idea came about quite suddenly, like a flash of lightning in the middle of the night. Songs and books. 

I used to write songs for school assignments back in high school, and a few years ago, I wrote a song based on the book SPEAK by Laurie Halse Anderson. I write music about things that move me, and often the thing that moves me is a really good book. I'm so excited to bring together my love of children's books and music. Hope you enjoy!
