New album "STARSEEDS" IN THE WORKS.

the way I see it songs are starseeds. A starseed is an individual who exists here on earth from another dimension to help others, and regardless of whether or not individuals exist in this way, I'm convinced that most of the songs do. They often come from an inexplicable place and time, and They do so with intention, appearing with empathetic and loving purpose. If a song is well-crafted and written honestly and with vulnerability, healing and Human connection is inevitable. Our nation and the world needs love, healing, and connection more now than ever.  

We're rounding the bend with the new recording, adding harmonies and a few overdubs at this point before mixing and We're looking forward to getting it out to you along with new and returning tour dates. In the meantime, I'll be performing a few shows in CT, NY, and MA over the next few months and look forward to seeing you soon.

Love and light ...

Kerri
