So you all know that I’ve been working to combine my author-life and my musician-life, and that I’ve got several projects in the works pertaining to both. You may also know that I’ve been experimenting with recording with the intent to eventually put out a CD of my original songs.

I just had the craziest, coolest, fascinating idea. EVER.

What if I put out a CD, but not just of my music… What if I put out a CD of my music PLUS some of my poetry/prose?

It would definitely be different. I know there are cases of musicians utilizing poetry (as poetry, not as lyrics) in their work — one that comes to mind is “Lullaby” by Loreena McKennit, with the poetic voice-over by James Earl Jones. And I know the cowboy poetry tradition relies heavily on poetry as well as music.

I think it might be fun to try it. 🙂

    1. I think it would be interesting, for sure. And, I think it would be doubly fun since I’m getting booked as “Heather the Bard” — and “bards” are poets, musicians, storytellers… 😛
