More of my usual, incoherent thought process....

Well today was a long day....cleaned the office and then pretty much sat here twiddling my thumbs waiting for someone to call and place an order. Funny but it wasn't until around 2 in the afternoon that it dawned on me "hey, I could put on some music". Listened to some of the various artists I have on i-tunes and then went to a file I haven't listened to in awhile; an artist named Mary Fahl.

For those of you not familiar with her name, Mary was the lead singer of an obscure little group called October Project who ultimately broke up. She recorded a solo album (which was amazing!)and then a whole lot of nothing. I have no idea what is going on since the website hasn't been updated in forever but today I was reminded again of just what a powerful voice this gal has.

Why do I write this? I'm not quite sure. Have you ever had one of those musicians you swear just inspire you to start writing, drawing, creating? Its as if the music alone were all the muse you'd ever need. This gal's voice does that. I need to pull her CD off of the shelf (along with those of October project) and take another listen this weekend. Curious? Here's a link to her song "Going Home" from the movie "Gods and Generals"....let me know what you think.

The October Project reformed with Marina Belica, former backing singer, as lead. but they've gone dormant again.

Mary Fahl performed around New York City for awhile. If you think she sounds good recorded you should hear her live. What a voice!
