Thanks for stopping by!

Hi! I am Marilyn, a singer/songwriter in Hudson, NY. You have landed on my personal website/ blog/ calendar, and you will find here all kinds of things about my musical life. Look around! My blog is below, but over in the right column under 'Pages', you can see links to videos, show schedules, song lists and the other musical projects I am working on. I really hope you will consider getting to a show or even have me (and my friends) come and entertain you at your party or event. People enjoy having us play for them!

When the music calls, I will be there....

KickBack-HELP!!!


Every time I get paid to make music, that money goes into an account that will pay for my next record. I am getting antsy about it now, because I have the songs, and I have the sounds in my head that I want to hear on the record, and I have the people to come into the studio with me that will create that sound.... AND we have the energy to make it work.

What I don't have, is the money.....

There is KickStarter.... some of my friends have used KickStarter and gotten their projects paid for with a lot of help from their friends. But, well, for some reason, that does not feel right for ME to do, though I support the idea and LOVE the community feel to these kickstarter programs..... So I have tried to think of other ways to get some money into the 'Dreamer' account.... And of course, that means I need to ask my friends, relatives and fans for some assistance......

There are two ways of helping me that I have been thinking of.....

1)  let me come to your home and do a show for you. You can pay me a set fee or whatever gets collected 'at the door'. I can give you original music or folky covers or a sing along or ???? A house concert, or just have me over for your BBQ to sing some songs..... I have done this a few times, and it is ALWAYS a good time-- for me, the hosts AND the guests!!!

2) OR.... if you have not bought my current record, Nighthawk, consider supporting my NEXT record by purchasing THAT one.....  If you look immediately to the right of this note, you will see at the top of the page, a 'name your own price' download opportunity from BandCamp.... I would truly appreciate every dollar, as that is one dollar closer to being able to lay down my new songs. You can also consider buying the CD from CD Baby, if you still like to hold your music in your hand....

In case you are wondering, I am looking to do an album very much in the style of my cover, Travel On, which you can hear HERE, with BetsiK and Mike and hopefully, a few others (who I have not even asked yet, see how much just a dream this still is??... but, with your help.....)
