Album Notes
Americana/Folk infused music with lyrics that recall poets like Mary Oliver and songwriters like Nanci Griffith and Suzanne Vega, Seco Sessions is her story of transformation and song craft evolution. “I was at a crossroads with my songwriting. I had been pursuing writing and pitching to others, and then realized my songs weren’t my songs. They were about things that didn’t really help me understand much about myself or my place here. So I stopped. I took a step back and made a single decision that changed everything for me. I sent an email to BMI Songwriter of The Year Susan Gibson and asked for her help. That decision started a chain reaction and got me here.”

Seco Sessions is a time capsule of sorts. It’s a collection of songs that tie to a songwriting retreat recommended by long-time friend and award-winning songwriter Louise Mosrie. “It was simple enough. I told her what was going on, about connecting with Susan, and that I was looking for a new tribe. She said, ‘hey, you like John Gorka, and you like New Mexico. You know he’s doing a songwriting retreat with Eliza Gilkyson in Arroyo Seco. You should go.’ And that was that. I was in! Life’s funny in the way it unfolds. I signed up and it changed my life – I know that sounds corny, but it changed everything: how I see myself as a songwriter, and my confidence level as a performer.”

From songs like “What I’ll Be” that began as a riff in a corner of the courtyard and a casual “you should write something to that” push from a teenager; to the more ethereal “Strange Science” that evolved from something Eliza and Linda agreed wasn’t very interesting to a song that unravels the mystery of lost love using science and weather metaphors that bring the emotion to ground; to sitting in an adobe garage studio recording “22 Hours (II)” for the first time after performing it nervously in front of John Gorka on the retreat’s opening day, the songs on the record all have their genesis in Arroyo Seco.

"When I look back, music has been one of my biggest joys, from sitting in the basement of the Laurel Theater with Gillian Welch & David Rawlings talking about songwriting to sharing the stage as Amelia Earhart Returns with folks like Caroline Aiken, Norman & Nancy Blake, The Nields, Disappear Fear, Guy & Evan Carawan, Tim & Molly O’Brien, Stacey Earle & Mark Stuart, Mindy Smith and Louise Mosrie. I’m glad I found my way back.”
