Hey everyone -
It has been way too long since I last wrote -- busy with life, including kids, school, and of course MUSIC! I'm continuing to make progress on the new album. Since it's a little here, a little there, it is slow going, but it's definitely going! And I can't wait to be able to share it with you all...probably next year! So stay tuned...
In the meantime, I hope you are all well, and that you're having a wonderful 2013 :)
Profilage Season 3 premieres at #1
March 20, 2012
The French series, Profilage, just aired the first episode of season 3. I was told it was number one, with 6 million viewers! I co-wrote some songs for this season, and am thrilled that it's doing so well, as it's an amazing show!!
More Royal Pains!
January 27, 2012
Tune in next week, on February 1st, to hear my song "Unforgettable" on USA's "Royal Pains!"
Phase 2 of Recording
November 8, 2011
Slowly but surely, the songs for the new album are taking shape. Liam Davis, the Producer, lives in Chicago and I'm in LA, so we are sending the tracks back and forth through the air! I imagine in Phase 3 (not sure how many phases there will be :) we'll work on together together in 1 city, but for now it's working amazingly well.
Songs written for Profilage
October 11, 2011
I've been writing and recording songs with Alexandre Fortuit for a Network series in France called "Profilage." I believe it is going to start airing soon, so if you're in France, check it out!!! :)

Just found out that my song "It's The Sound" will be in this week's episode of Royal Pains. I'm very excited because I love the show and look forward to watching it each week! If you also love it, then keep your ears open, and if you haven't seen it, tune into USA this Wednesday night and enjoy :)

Very excited that my music has been added to Pandora Radio! I feel honored to be part of such a great collection of music!!
Last week of Expressing Motherhood!
May 3, 2011
We're halfway through the run of Expressing Motherhood, and the play is really amazing. It's truly an incredible cast who offer so many different perspectives on Motherhood, and I feel honored to be a part of it. Wanted to say thanks to everyone who came last week! And also let you know that there are 4 more shows this week, Wed. 5/4 - Sat. 5/7. I highly recommend it if you can make it!

I flew to Chicago today to start recording my new album with Producer Liam Davis. We first spent a couple of days getting all of the songs in shape and then spent a day in the studio recording drums, played by the amazing Gerald Dowd! I'm really, really excited about it and am so happy to have started the process. Next, Liam and I will pass files back and forth from Chicago to LA -- it's pretty amazing what we can do with technology these days!!
February 25, 2011
I've just been cast in this amazing play called Expressing Motherhood, which consists of Moms sharing stories about Motherhood. I wrote and submitted a song based on one of the many experiences of being a Mom, and I'm really excited to perform it in their Mother's Day show. It's running for 8 nights at the end of April, beginning of May -- get your tickets now by clicking here!
New Music Seminar
February 18, 2011
I attended the New Music Seminar in LA this week, and it was incredibly inspiring. I'm now motivated and excited about all of the possibilities that the internet provides for indie musicians such as myself! There are so many places to upload my music and be in touch with people who are interested in my music. It's really amazing but also overwhelming. So I'm starting with my website, cleaning it up a bit and then I'm going to create a Facebook page that's exclusively for my music. I'll be sure to let you all know when that happens.
September 16, 2010
Lately I've been very inspired and have been writing more songs for the new album. Still recording them on my own but am taking the next steps to get Liam on board. He will (of course!) be Producing the album. I'm really excited about this new batch of songs and will start playing around town to put these little guys out there. There's something about my kids getting a little older (they're now 4 & 2!) that's motivating me -- maybe it's that I'm starting to sleep like a normal person! Anyway, I'm definitely more energized and am thinking about all of the musical projects I want to delve into.

Just got word that a Jars of Stars song is going to be in a Toyota commercial, so keep your ears open. You can hear the song, called "BaBaDa" on our Myspace page
. Jars of Stars is the band that I'm in with Liam Davis, who has produced all of my solo albums.
Commercial for Google Japan!
June 10, 2010
One of the songs that I wrote with Sean Spuehler (my brother!) and Liam Davis was chosen to be in an ad for Google Japan. I'm hoping to be able to upload it for you to check out, but am having trouble getting video to work on my page!
May 13, 2010
The song "Hear You Say" from my album "It's The Sound" will be in tonight's episode of Flash Forward on ABC. Check it out if you get a chance!
March 5, 2010
I've started recording my new songs! And am very excited to be on the path to making another album. As of now, it's just me working on these songs in my home studio. Once they start taking shape, I'll figure out what the next step will be. Will keep you posted...

Check out the new Expedia.com commercial that's airing now. That's right, folks, I'm singing the "dot com" on this one!
November 19, 2009
Many folks have been asking me when I'm going to start playing out again. It has been a little while and I've been asking myself the same question! I guess I've been in a different mode, more about working on songwriting, exploring the world of writing & singing for commercials, and to be honest, my bedtime with two young kids is embarrassingly early! BUT, with that said, the new year may bring with it new possibilities to get my solo artist groove on and take it to the streets :) 2010...the year of the stage?
writing and mommying
October 15, 2009
Not sure what I'm going to do with the songs I'm writing these days, but am just having fun digging into songwriting. Maybe I'll start recording them, lo-fi style, and see what happens from there. I'm also continuing to write for commercials -- a girl's got to make a living somehow :) Actually it has really been a blast. I feel very fortunate to have come across a fun way to make a living doing music while also being able to continue writing songs and spending time with my kiddos (who are now 1 1/2 and 3 1/2!).

I've been working on a project with my brother, Sean Spuehler. Not only is he a totally awesome brother but he's also an amazing musician/producer/programmer (his credits include Madonna, Beck and most recently Adam Lambert to name a few). We've just finished 15 songs that will be released by Boosey & Hawkes, a publisher based in the UK, for licensing to TV/Film. This group of songs was really fun to write & record -- all super happy, upbeat tunes that were recorded in the home studio that we set up in my garage!

I'm part of a new website called IndiEclectic.com and I'm very excited about what they're doing. It was founded by artists (including Jackson Browne & Alanis Morissette) who wanted to offer a whole new experience for music fans. They have selected 200 of the top Indie artists to offer their music on the site and have created what they call the Backstage Pass. The pass costs $20 and with that you can download (and own) any of the 2,000+ songs. There is such quality music on the site, from more well-known indie artists like Ron Sexmith, Tracy Bonham & Dan Bern to local LA indie artists like me :) It's a great way to own music that you've wanted to get plus to discover new music from artists that you don't know about yet.
Definitely check it out, and if you decide to get a backstage pass, please select my name from the drop-down list that asks "Who are you here to download?"
Enjoy :) And thanks for your continued support!!
Anything You Want
March 3, 2009
We just finished our Jars of Stars EP, titled "Anything You Want," and the song "Feeling Higher" was selected for a commercial! It's for a company called Freestyle and will start airing next week. Keep your ears open :)
Check us out & be our Myspace Friend!
Jars of Stars
December 1, 2008
Liam & I have started a side project band. We're calling it Jars of Stars, and are in the process of recording a 5 song EP. I'm still writing songs on my own, but my time is mostly focused on getting these songs written & recorded. Will keep you posted...
Hope you're all well & have happy, happy holidays!!!

August 6, 2008

Hey everyone - hope you've been doing well! I've been busy with baby and have been writing a lot of music lately as well. I've also been writing music for commercials, and recently wrote and sang on a couple of WalMart spots. They're quite fun to write -- like little songs. Will let you know if any more happen so you can look out for them...
