Archive for Sweden Tour


NEW SINGLE released today.

The song is about finding strength to break down walls that life can put up sometimes. It was inspired by my husband’s five year battle with multiple myeloma cancer. I have been in awe of his ability to push on and humbled by his resilience to not let it stop him from embracing every day. Although it reflects our journey, I hope the song gives encouragement to those facing any struggle that may seem to be insurmountable, that through love and faith we can go “beyond these walls”.1BeyondTheseWalls_CDPackagingedit

Blog on Photos

I just spent the last week uploading all my photos from the tour. I am fully aware that there are way more pictures than anyone would be interested in, but I had fun going through them (and believe it or not, deleting many shots!) My friend Mary Sullivan came over from LA and helped me through the tour. She took most of the photos, some from my sister-in-law Karin too I think. Posting them is probably more for me than anyone else, except for maybe the many musicians and friends that were a part of it all. I hope I was able to give them some good photos to remember our time together. Of course one can never capture their experience in full through film. These are just snippets of moments in a grand scale of events that occurred.  This is probably my 15th or so trip to Sweden and I can honestly say that each trip has left an impact on my life. I can’t really explain it….maybe that’s why over 10 friends have joined me through the years to this awesome country! They will tell you the same.

If you have not been, maybe for now these photos can give you a glimpse into the people and the landscape of Sweden and why I keep going back! I hope you enjoy them.

Home from the Emerald City

Wow! Home now. What happened? Can’t believe the tour is over. Spent 12 hours on Lufthansa thinking about all the details of the trip and all the incredible people and places I experienced. Thank you to everyone that came out to the shows, hosted me and Mary, and showed us the typical Swedish welcome!!

Terry and Emma picked me up at the airport. So great to see them!! They really held the fort down while I was gone. The house looks great and they planted new flowers in the garden over the weekend. I am truly blessed with my family.

I will be posting pics as I upload and unwind in the next couple days. Anyone that wants to continue to have a  look into Swedish culture should check back!

I think it’s time to sleep now…..

Tour end

Back to my friend’s house in Stockholm after a fun show at Bonden Bar. My dear friend Liza Sverin came and sang one of her own songs. Thank you to Daniel for sitting in on bass. What a great time!

We are winding down now and Max and Mary are playing PS3….. Pixel Junk. I don’t get it, but they are talking about monsters and all I see are flying ladybug looking characters that collect money and explode into coins. So bizarre. They are totally into it.  I am clearly spacing out watching this and then blogging about it!!!!

Jamtland Airport

Only in Jamtland does the runway have Christmas trees!


Have arrived in Stockholm. Weather has changed and it’s blue skies!! Wow…so pretty. Could spring be here? One last show before home on Monday. It’s gone by so fast!
