SPRING 2020
Hear the single for Two Gardens: You and You Alone. And watch Spring unfold. 

I took a picture every day at the same spot for 10 weeks. The first picture was taken on March 22, 2020 during the stay at home order. Every day I went to Smith Woods in Westmont, Illinois, to find this same spot, take a picture, and watch spring slowly unfold. Two surprises awaited me: First: the prairie was burned one day! Second: the tree is a flowering tree. Music by Louise Kelly. “You and You Alone,” a single from forthcoming album “Two Gardens.”

Latest single release!

I swear this song was written BEFORE the Covid-19 Pandemic. Before social distancing. But it feels strangely descriptive of this time we find ourselves in. Presenting to you: “Loneliest Town”
