In 2018, a new SB.Com emerged from the gathered treasures of a busy life. You have landed on our doorstep.
Whether you arrived unceremoniously or with strong intent, there is love - and music! - for you here.
Hello friends. Welcome to my mind. It's hard to believe that half of this year is over - who DOES know where the time goes? The past 6 months led me to feel... paused, at least in the final part of the trilogy of life as a performing songwriter. Write, record, perform. Repeat. This year has been different - a breather after so much change. During those quieter months, I wrote music for CSL Delaware where I serve as music director, playing every Sunday morning with a focus on growing my life to equal my purpose. I lost interest in singing about traditional topics of popular music: loss of love, co-dependency and sorrow, oh my!
So I sat back and listened. I started work with a long-standing organic farm with the most delicious food, good hearts and a place for me to be that is wholesome and serves the greater good. I took a powerful class called Foundations that rocked my boat to a stiller place, then another one on it's heels to address life-long financial lack (that "starving artist" BS). I also started and maintain a spiritual practice: meditation, a gratitude journal, abundance work to restructure the beliefs that had me standing on the hose that brings all good to me,. I often walk the woods or the Newark reservoir at sunset. The weekly nudge to write for the themes of Sunday services brought lovely new affirmative music to my pen, guitar, mouth. Life is blessed and quiet. Still looking for a way to feel authentic in my music outside of Sunday mornings, I started the search for what is becoming a fine selection of acoustic pop covers that are inspired and inspiring. The result is a mix of my original music and covers I feel good singing. Onward and upward!
Join me the first through the third Sunday monthly at CSL Delaware, or at one of the handful of summer shows in the Southern PA/Northern MD area. I am keeping my toes in the water while the music and her muses sift and sort to shuffle me a sweet set list of songs to share. My strong intention is still the start of an annual return to Western Europe, with 2019 looking more likely than this disappearing year. Once you taste the way the Dutch listen and ask insightful questions about your lyrics... the wholly enthralled appreciation for songwriters that runs through the entire region from Germany to Holland, England to Ireland and Wales, well... that seed grows. More on this as the year unfolds.
Speaking of love:
Love Buzz Music has a new address. We have moved to Elkton, MD (ish), and life is full of new promise. 10 minutes to the college town of Newark, DE and 7 minutes to the historical town of Elkton. The Newark Reservoir is awesome place for a sunset walk, with more extensive woodland hiking available via the White Clay Creek watershed. This tree lover is excited to explore!
Clearly you too love the light of a spring morning through dewy grasses, reflections in water, and a setting sun painting the sky in otherworldly ways. We at Love Buzz Music LOVE the BUZZ of nature's small and grand displays: gratitude really is the path to more. Per your request, Sharon's photographs will soon have an address at sb.com. Thank you for your interest in art in all it's forms.
