The Crystal Girls.

That was the name of a “band” I was a part of. When I was 10 or so.

Laura, Jennifer, and I would get together for band practice, write lyrics together, take turns singing (and trying to sound like Christina Aguilera, as many young girls do), and of course, we practiced our dance moves.

But one day, my friends started talking about going on tour and sharing our genius with the world.

I panicked. I told them I did not want to be the next Jesse McCartney or Aaron Carter. I wanted to be young and carefree and not living on a bus. Cause you know, that was obviously a real possibility.

They were upset with me for giving up on our dreams. The band broke up.

And then we were friends again later that day.

And over a decade later, I am starting to get to the point where I really, really want to get out there and share my music with others.

So lets do this!

[cue “Friends Forever,” which was the title of one of our “hit” songs]

I want to connect with you. Whoever you are reading this. So I want to throw out this offer.

What is going on in your life? Are you happy? Sad? In love? Broken hearted? Hungry?

Message me, comment on here, whatever. Tell me a story that I can turn into a song for you. Something you can listen to that is literally meant for you.
