Today is my birthday and for my 30th I wanted to release an album I know I challenged myself to write and could be proud of. I am not disappointed and feel at peace with the best work I’ve done so far.

(and other major streaming services)
My latest album is on Amazon Music and numerous other streaming services (iTunes, Apple Music & so on) and I now do have a Spotify Artist profile with the album and a few singles I’ve had time to upload for streaming. Just search my name, Allyson Marie and my avatar should show with a link. The Night Will Pass on Amazon Music. Also I have it listed on the CDbaby store and was able to set the price myself, cheaper than on Amazon where they don’t allow me to set the price: The Night Will Pass on CDbaby
4th free collection. These are new recordings of the first and oldest songs I ever wrote from about 9 or 10 years ago. Rather than mix these with newer songs on an album, I want them on their own because they come from the same time mental space. Trying not to make these albums forever long either so this about 40 minutes…lol
I am putting together a short collection of very old songs I re-recorded and want to release together. This is one of my favorites of those early pieces. I’d had my first piano for less than a year and was amazed at how many ideas I was following through. It meant everything.
This is to working 40 hrs a week at a job that wears one out..
This I hope will be the last collection of boring acoustic piano pieces. I need variety and will try to make the next set a real difference from prior work. Time to experiment.
I finally finished my second song collection. The painting above is the cover image. It’s the work itself I live for. This could suck to everyone else, but even so, this all accounts for my time here not being a complete waste. We all need something to live for. I’m already working on #3 with an aim to get the music & timing just right for each song. Trying to get things perfect drives me nuts but I can’t help myself…lol
