Writing New Music For Media

by mary on March 14, 2014

Hey Everyone,

Hope all is well in your world. I haven’t posted to this site in quite some time, so I figured it was time for an update. Life is great! The family and I are all in good health and spirits and looking forward to the end of the crazy 2014 winter. Geez it’s been cold. I can’t remember when we’ve had such a tough winter in Connecticut.

Anyway, if you’re stopping by the site I wanted to let you know that I’ve been writing a ton of new material, but with a laser focus on music for film, TV and other media. This means that rather than the live guitar/vocal singer-songwriter type of music I’m known for, my new stuff is focused on studio production of instrumentals. I’ll still write full songs with lyrics, but since there is a demand for upbeat, motivational instrumental music I want to throw my hat into that ring.

I’ve got 10 new tracks in the works and will be posting them as soon as I get them mixed and mastered. Would love to hear what you think when they get released. Thanks for your interest in my music and I look forward to sharing the latest and greatest with you soon!
