Album Notes
About two months before I was due to have my first baby, I had this crazy idea to record a solo album. I think it was my way of preparing for the new life that was about to arrive. I needed a home for some of the songs I had been carrying in order to have space for the new things to come. So I worked like mad to get these songs ready for the studio, and I recorded over a weekend in April—just two weeks before my daughter was born!

"Close to Me" is a collection of eleven songs. Some have been with me for a few months while others have been with me for years. Some are political. Some are very personal. One was written for the heroine of a romance novel, and one is written in the voice of a Christmas ghost. I wrote the title track for a friend’s wedding, and it seemed like the right theme for this project. “Close to Me” is simple and intimate—just me in a room with my guitar. My goal was to capture the moment, and it was a pretty special moment! I call it a solo album, but at thirty-eight weeks pregnant, my daughter was with me the whole time. I hope you enjoy this collection!
