I have been deeply moved by the struggles and strength of Ukrainian mothers as they face a devastating war and separation from loved ones. With them in mind, my Ukrainian friend Olena Oksenych has beautifully translated one of my songs. Recorded this week in Kyiv, we share “Колисанка (Kolysanka, a Lullaby)” for mothers and care-givers everywhere.
Are you looking for a song to lift your spirits? I gave myself an assignment to write one in praise of a convenience store. It was a lot of fun to write. Join me in the kitchen and I’ll sing it for you.
I am starting 2022 with something a little different – with a tribute to Michael Troy; one of our great and less famous songwriters. Join me as I share a short tribute that I performed at a recent concert at the Narrows Center for the Arts.
