“Artist of the Week” on WERU

Standard

Hello Friends,

I hope that you are all taking good care of yourselves and each other. I wanted to share the news that I’ve been selected to be “Artist of the Week” on WERU-a very, cool Maine community station. This means that they will play one song from my new CD “Songs from a Peaceful Heart” daily at 745am (EST) each weekday starting on 2.15.21 and then, I’ll do a Live phone interview with the music director at 830am (EST) that Friday, 2.19. You can tune in/stream from anywhere in the world at www.weru.org For those who are lucky enough to live close enough to get this on an actual (“old school”) radio, it’s at 89.9fm.

stay safe and well,

Lynn

Hello Friends,

I So hope that you are all safe and taking care of yourselves/each other during these difficult times. It’s both a challenge and an opportunity to be on the Planet at this time. In the midst of it all, I miss performing with and for my peeps! Until it is safe, I will be happily Savoring memories of attending and participating in live music, getting chills from perfect 3 part harmony, bantering with a crowd and feeling the amazing energy exchange of a Live show. I hope that we can safely gather soon…in the meantime…I’m sharing a beautiful review of the latest CD (link below) by Aimsel Ponti from the Portland Press Herald…she will also be playing some of the cuts on her radio show on WCLZ (98.9fm). I’m humbled and Grateful to have these important musical messages out in the world at this time, especially.

New CD now available digitally!

Standard

Hello Friends,

I hope that you are all weathering this wave of the world’s difficulties by finding ways of Connection and Balance. My latest release is offered up in the Spirit of being a “healing balm.” This heartfelt collection, entitled “Songs from a Peaceful Heart” is now digitally available as single-song downloads or the full-length CD, as well as listening to song samples of each selection.

https://lynndeeves.hearnow.com

This is a soulful collaboration with contributions of many lay and monastic mindfulness practitioners from within the Plum Village tradition. The project was recorded prior to and just as the reality of the Covid-19 situation emerged. May the music be of great benefit during these unsettled times. 2/3 of all proceeds will benefit the Thich Nhat Hanh Foundation and Morning Sun Mindfulness Community of NH.

in peace,

Lynn

Hello My Friends,I hope that you are doing all that you can to keep yourselves and others safe and well at this unprecedented time in our world. Although we are not able to be together in a physical sense, thankfully-there are many ways to stay connected. One of the ways I have chosen has always been through music. I’m happy and grateful to let you know that a new CD is now available in hard copy (CD form) and coming soon-digital downloads on Amazon Music, Apple Music/I-tunes, Spotify and Pandora). The CD is a heartfelt, soulful compilation of mindfulness practice songs in collaboration with many members of Thich Nhat Hanh’s Plum Village tradition, along with local (Maine/NH) musicians. Who knew when this project began, what the world would look like today? My aspiration is that the music will offer a healing oasis from the troubles we are facing, as well as inspiration as we move forward. 1/3 of the proceeds will support Morning Sun Mindfulness Community in NH and 1/3 of the proceeds will support the Thich Nhat Hanh Foundation.

At home in Richmond, we just chopped down our Christmas tree from the farm down the road and put up outside lights this afternoon…there are so many things to feel Grateful for…including, family and friends…health…a brand-new Taylor guitar (which has been on my “bucket list” for several years)…as well as being invited to collaborate with a longtime friend for a Solstice celebration. Join Jen Deraspe and I at “Nurture through Nature” for this special evening…see flyer below and www.ntnretreats.com/calendar
