New Stuff

I uploaded a new song "Dive In" which is a pop song with orchestration. Hope you like.

I'm not a composer...

I just play one on tv. Okay that's not true either. I do play around with TV. I'm married to Chris who started this network and he said I could be in it. I'm actually a producer for HGTV and that's how we met. I am the self-appointed head of marketing for Merritt Music Productions however.
