I used to be really picky with perfecting what I recorded and would certainly never share a song I didn't feel completely satisfied with. Well, today I sat down with my iPad and recorded the Christmas Waltz. I'm letting go of the pitchy voice and missed lower notes that I was hitting yesterday.

This year I've been working with the Voice and Swallow center for Muscle Tension Dysphonia that has caused many problems with my singing voice. When other health problems took my ability to tour and perform or even play guitar for more than 30 minutes, I was devastated. I told myself "At least I'll always have my voice." Then I was diagnosed with this and have had to do a lot of positive thinking just to not give up on music altogether. Life has a way of telling you that YOU ARE NOT IN CONTROL.

I am learning to let go and share music even though my career never turned out how I wanted and life has changed drastically. I hope you enjoy this basic song with all of its many issues. And I hope to continue my iPad recordings just to stay somewhat connected to my passion. I'm still waiting on a good health day to get back in the professional studio and finish two songs I started earlier this year. Those will be released someday, so don't give up on them!

Anyway, Merry Christmas!
