I walked away to get wisdom, but in the end I just walked home.
There's a variety and depth to the song topics I get to write about in children's music and books: being able to write about things I wouldn't normally write about, like a disappointing pancake, or monsters or opposite day is really different than writing about heartbreak and relationships.
I think a good mom is an awake mom. At least for me, I've always been a kinder, better person awake than sleep-deprived!
One of the things that's influenced me musically was my experience at Brown University. I was surrounded by musicians that I really admired, and felt challenged to come up with music, lyrics, and recordings that stood up to the expectations of those musicians and myself.
The time between meeting, and finally leaving is sometimes called falling in love.
It's important to learn how to tell a story, ... It can be in a very direct way. It can be in a very poetic way. It can be very personal, and sometimes it can seem like it's very personal.
Where I grew up in Dallas, things might be a little more traditional. People have the same things in mind. They're supposed to grow up, go to college, get a job, get married, and have children, grandchildren. That's the world I grew up in.
Stop fighting. Everyone's a person too. And take care of the Earth, please.
A friend of mine once told me that I can't screw up when I play my own music. I also take voice lessons, play other peoples' songs out of music books, and occasionally figure out how to play other people's music from records. This keeps my ears, fingers, and mind working

I think that I'm throwing but I'm thrown
When I grew up we had gym at school, two or three dance classes after school, ice skating lessons, and all sorts of sports at our finger tips. We weren't glued to computers because they didn't exist, so being active was all we knew.
The guys in my band are great-we watch movies, we eat pizza, take walks, read books. Everybody has a really great sense of humor. And my boyfriend comes and visits me on the road.
I have three siblings. My sister makes music. My older brother is a classical conductor, and my younger brother is a mixing engineer.

Again, I'm used to speaking to a lot of people; I have a lot of friends and family, and I perform music and speak in front of a lot of crowds. So I share with people already a lot in my life.
Some people train for certain sports and I want to train to be able to hold a super heavy electric guitar and carry luggage around myself because I always have to have 7,000 pairs of shoes. Who cares about sports?
I always wanted to make a children's album because you have the freedom to explore so many wonderful topics and sounds.
I'm making a record that's half stripped down acoustic which is the way I perform a lot and half of it is very produced. It's really hard to keep music simple but I was trying to keep it simple and focus on one or two instruments and vocals.
If we all leap before we crawl, we might fall.
Summer camp was a place where I felt like myself that wasn't like school. There were no grades, we got to try lots of new things, and I started to play guitar at camp. It was a place for acceptance and learning to be a part of a community, but also learning to be yourself. I want that for all kids,
connect with more people on a larger scale.
The only way to get vegetables at a diner late night is to order the omelette. A feta cheese and broccoli omelette.
My nutritionist always said to eat whatever you want.
The song "No Fairy Tale" tells my story. Going through the hard things leads to a richer life than just trying to make everything perfect, or worse, pretending things are good when they don't feel right. I've done that more than enough times.
