Happy 2020, everyone!

Last night, I received a text from a friend:  she’d heard This American Life’s episode 691, “Gardens of Branching Paths,” and my song “Alternate Universe” (from my 2009 release, Thoughts at an Intersection) ended the episode, played a little before, and during, and after, the closing credits.  My friend wanted to know:  was I aware of this?

No, as a matter of fact, this was a complete surprise!  I am so grateful she let me know, or I might’ve missed this unexpected joy completely.  (And this is why friends should always tell friends when they hear them on air! 🙂 )

The episode is about alternate realities.  Right up my alley, and the song was a perfect fit.  I don’t even know, at this writing, how they found it — I don’t remember sending my album to that show! — but I couldn’t be happier.  I love unexpected surprises like this!

You can listen to the show (and my song) at the link above.  You can listen to my song on iTunes and CD Baby and more, too.  What a great way to start the new year!  Wishing you a wonderful year, as well. <3

Looks like I'm in my Alternate Universe, where everything's going my way!
