I Just Wanna Dance

Picture1

They say that good things come to those who wait.  I’m excited to announce that this Friday the release of a new song  I Just Wanna Dance, a collaborative effort with pre-teen producer Kia Song. Kai’s new single embodies summertime dance flavor through progressive house builds and joyful melody. I am honored to have been a part of this process.

I first received a call from David Waxman in 2014 during Ultra’s early stages of developing Kai. Having worked with Kaskade on several tracks, David felt like my writing and voice just might be a good fit for Kai. We collaborated on writing “I Just Wanna Dance” online for several months.

It’s remarkable to me that someone as young as Kai can not only master the advanced technology he is using, but that he is leaning into his artistry as a musician on such a mature level. I’m elated to say that it’s an awesome production and totally worth the wait!

It was so amazing to have been able to play with Hive Riot at the Utah Pride Festival last weekend! I wish we had a picture to capture the complete JOY I was feeling from everyone dancing their hearts out in the audience. It is fans like these who give our music meaning and make preforming it beyond fun!

Undercover Music Video Release

“Step out from behind the shadows. Shake your shame and all your sorrow. Take your place and dance out in the sun. No one should live undercover. No one is above the other. Freedom is a gift for everyone.” So proud to release the music video for this song today.

Habitat for Humanity

Women Build

Several weeks ago, I put a call out for women volunteers to come build a house as part of Habitat for Humanity‘s National Women Build Week. The group filled up immediately and we came together today to help Crystal Long build a home for her and her two children. This amazing family recently lost their dad. I was so moved by Crystal’s gracious persona and work ethic in the face of such a loss. So empowering and inspiring. A million thanks to all the women who came to build today and to Habitat for teaching us building skills and organizing this event. Read the Daily Herald article here.
