Day 12

“You are okay”  is officially done. 

Started working on Thankful For Everything, and although it’s pretty much done as well, I think it might be a little too dark, sound wise. 

It’s such an odd feeling to be so close to finishing the album. I’m actually a little scared, to the point where I might keep going.

Day 11

Starting on “You Are Okay” today. 

for me, this is the most important song of the entire album.  

I hope that it helps someone because I’ve been really trying to let it help me.

Day 10

spent time recording with Jerome for a couple hours.

his instruments and his playing are equally beautiful. 

working on my other music helped me get inspired to continue my children’s album.

Day 9

Taking a short break from the studio, to focus on the other parts of the album. 

came up with a really fun idea that I think will help people—and that’s the point of it all, really. 

i forgot how good knitting feels.

Day 8

I took this photo before I left my “studio” at 1AM, right after completing a song.

In my head, each song is so much bigger than they’re ending up, but I’m forcing myself to keep things simple. 

That was the entire point of it all anyway, wasn’t it?

Day 7

Started recording the “rest” of the songs on the album; not sure how they’ll build up.

Also grabbing inspiration for the extras by going through my favorite stories. 

Four left, my friends.

Day 6

This night was spent at The Troubador in West Hollywood.

It’s good to get out and hear music that isn’t yours for several hours. 

Once I got home, I finally figured out how to record loud vocals, so the bonus cover for the album is done.

Day 5

Finishing up another day in the studio.

Listening to The Helpers through a huge speaker.

Figured out I can carry things in my overalls. Is this better than a fanny pack?

Day 4

First full day in the studio with the rug, change is huge.

Finished the second song on the album.

Cried when I heard it in the car.

But I'm crying throughout this entire process anyway, so no big deal.

Had to take photos so people know I'm alive.

Also got to show how much I love my Pono ukulele. 

Ordered these overalls and have almost exclusively worn them and my yoga pants, every single day.

Day 2

Studio dog enjoying his couch. 

One ear up to help with the mixing.

Trying to put as much fabric as possible in the studio to help with sound.

Day 1

First night recording.

Realizing I'm probably gonna need a rug in here if I don't want the album to sound like I recorded it in a cavern.

Hello to eye bags and a pissed off face.
