The Set NYC: Women in Art | Mimas House Hells Kitchen January 2018

"We don't stand alone anymore, we're holding up each other. 
Our children need us, so heed the call, sisters and brothers."
- These are lines from Trauma Storm, one of my songs that I'll be performing at the SetNYC Event tonight in Hell's Kitchen-

Another Great Album Review for Reach Up

On her self-produced second album, the sublimely talented Lyndol Descant gives us a recording that is melodic and sweet listening for anyone’s ears. I should clarify, that last descriptor could easily be misconstrued as a milquetoast synapses, as if it could just as easily be background music – quite the opposite.

Album Review for Reach Up

Lyndol Descant's singing blends so achingly well with her piano that she's almost like a one-woman duo. They're both instruments, her voice and her keyboard. When they're locked into each other, which happens often on her new album Reach Up, it is remarkably powerful. From beginning to end, Reach Up is an experience of sound and feeling. Descant isn't restrained by stylistic boundaries, either. Her compositions reach into pop, jazz fusion, and alternative sounds, their elements mixing together in complete harmony.

Sounds of Freedom

I'm so happy to have my song 'Reach Up' included in the Sounds of Freedom 76 -  a podcast compilation of "conscious musicians" put together by Mark Devlin, a musician and music industry researcher. My song is around the 40th minute, but the whole hour is packed with incredible music that is uplifting, inspiring and loving. Truly loving.

Sesame Street Debut

This past week, I filmed a segment for Sesame Street. The one and only Sesame Street! (though now owned by HBO)

Sesame Street moments are some of my very earliest memories. We watched it all the time when I was a young girl of the 70's.  Right from the start, Sesame Street showed me that learning is super fun.

The Science of Genuis

I've long been into the “Science of Genius,” as Scientific American coined it. Since before I can remember, it seemed obvious to me that we all posses the potential for genius. Maybe my faith grew from the urban legend that we are only using 10% of our brains. Seemed logical enough to me that people like Einstein weren't more intelligence than the rest of us. They just cracked the code on how to use more of their brains.

Sweet Soubrette Gig at the Rock Shop

Last Thursday, we had a gig at the Rock Shop in Brooklyn. It was a full band formation which means 3 horns, violin, rhythm section and Ellia (songwriter) leading on vocals and ukelele. I adore playing with this band. Everyone in the band is accomplished and kind, fun to work with and gives 100%. I'm so thankful to be a part of it.
