Few things in life bring me as much joy as singing with my dad. My mom tells me that when I was 2 years old I would wait by the window for my dad to walk home from the train station after work and greet him with a yodel. When I lived in NYC, my dad and I started performing in dive bars in Brooklyn and folk halls in New Jersey. We called our father-daughter duo: Dirt Road Sweetheart.
In 2008 we recorded an album entitled “I Heard the Bluebirds Sing” right before I moved away from home, to Nashville, to try and “make it” as a musician. Ten years later, we recorded our second record, “Rose Of My Heart” and I’m so proud to share both of them with you now, in a limited edition Double Vinyl and Double CD. You can learn more and place your order right here.
These recordings are as honest and real as they come and I think when you listen to each song, you’ll hear not just the one performance that is captured here, but all of the thousands of hours spread out over 30 years of two people making music together for the shear love of it.
Father’s Day is on June 16th. Celebrate someone you love, your father, your father-in-law, your husband, your grandfather, yourself! with a gift of music. We’ll officially release the album that weekend, but if you pre-order now you can receive this collection of songs that are so special to me early enough to gift them to the special father figure in your live.
