My duet partner for tomorrow is the warm,toned and hearted @countrydaveharmonson “Harmonson made a living throughout the ’70s and ’80s with a slew of country groups that have all since disbanded—bands like Lance Romance, Stampede Pass, Shade Tree, and Road Apple that toured the country circuit throughout the Pacific Northwest into Colorado, Montana, and Wyoming. All told, Harmonson’s opened for the likes of Dwight Yoakam, Commander Cody, the Amazing Rhythm Aces, New Riders of the Purple Sage, Asleep at the Wheel, Mel Tillis, Mickey Gilley, Fred Eaglesmith, EmmyLou Harris, Flying Burrito Brothers, Vassar Clements Band, James McMurtry, and Justin Townes Earle. “I was working 51, 52 weeks a year,” he says. “Five or six nights a week. Once in about ’84 we did something like 60 days straight,” he says. Written by Gwendolyn Elliott from American Standard time originally in the Seattle Weekly. . . . . . #countryboy #singersongwriter #songwriting #song #musician #singer #songwriter #musicians #countrymusic #art #countrygirl #livemusic #countrymusiclyrics #music #guitar #artist #country #instamusic #emmylouharris

Lavender Lemonade! It took me forever to get the color perfected, but I finally did. I’m not sure why I’ve been so obsessed with making this. Maybe it’s because the Color Purple is my favorite movie and book. Maybe it’s because my people always make lemonade out of the most bitter experiences. #lavender #lavenderlemonade #wealwaysovercome #weshallnotbemoved #humanrights 2 cups of water, 1 tablespoon of dried lavender flowers. Boil and then let it cool for 15 minutes. Then filter the water into a pitcher, juice like 4 lemons, add the lemon juice, sweeten with honey or agave. Then add cold water. Add one drop of blue food coloring. Enjoy!

What I’m currently working on excites me. It’s a new act with someone that I respect. It isn’t often that I am moved by an artist. For me to be moved, they have to be different and have a way that is unlike any other. This is what I have found. So, it’s a pleasure to collaborate and create. The songs we are writing together are beautiful and strong. If you aren’t already on the email list for this group. I’d like you to join it so that we can invite you to upcoming shows and the EP release party. Follow the link here in this profile @alineandwes to join our email list. Music stands alone without a following. It’s our audience that puts food on the table and gets the word out. Seattle, Greater Seattle area, and Portland bands, I may be reaching out to you to be on the same lineup. This gives a chance to work with each other in a different light. DM @alineandwes if you’d like to be on the bill with us. #musicfans #musicians #musiciansofinstagram #alineandwes #fanreach #seattlemusicscene #seattlemusicians #songs #portlandmusicianscene #songwriting #vocals #guitar #piano #harmonica #liveyourdream

I’ve always felt like my spirit was alive in the 60s and I connect with the 60s/70s rock music. Port Townsend seems to have a lot of seasoned hippies. My kind of people. Revisiting Port Townsend for sure in the future. It was great to swim even if it was solo. Yoga was great too.This cuddly bulldog crashed with me last night.

I can totally relate to what @nikwestbass is saying. When someone is truly happy and secure in who they are, they are not threatened by anyone else. They are happy to see someone else succeed. I’m lucky to know some strong,confident women and men and it’s great to have them in my life. I think there are plenty of slices of pie for everyone and if we look at the big picture, we can accomplish a lot. #Repost@nikwestbass with @repostsaveapp · · · “Sometimes, I wonder how girls can hate on each other so much. I was taught at a very young age to treat girls as I would my sisters. To share. To love. To be honest. That’s who I am. If I have a problem with something my sisters have done, I let them know... in a loving way. We aren’t jealous of each other. We don’t compete with each other because if I’ve learned anything in life, it’s that What God Has For Me Is For Me. Your doors are your doors. My doors are my doors. When your doors open, I’m cheering. When my doors open, you’re cheering. Not throwing shade. Not belittling the achievements. Not wondering HOW she got it and you didn’t. We don’t do that over here. Not in my camp. The music industry has broken my heart wide open. Not because it’s hard. Not because I’ve heard a million no’s. It’s because of women (most of them older than me and have been doing this a lot longer than me ) have said things that weren’t true or just simply have been mean instead of just talking to me or really getting to know me. I’ve grown a protective shield around my heart for this reason... but never stopped uplifting other women. If she’s better than you at something, so what? If (others think ) she’s prettier than you, SO WHAT? If she’s accomplished something (that you think you deserved instead ), so what? We are ALL stars. We are all WORTH IT. There’s room for all of us there’s no need for judgement. TAKE THE BLINDERS OFF BECAUSE TOGETHER WE’RE TRIUMPHANT! Come ON ladies, this ends now! Collaborate with someone you admire but never told her. #WCW someone who you think is dope. Send your followers over to another woman’s page that people may have put you in “competition” with. #WECANDOIT #WOMEN #Love4OneAnother 😉 “ #collaborate

Ola Musicians! If you are ever in Port Townsend, Washington, United States and need to record or you want to take an awesome trip to record, use this studio. It’s so beautiful. You have tons of space. You can tell that the space layout was well thought out. Joseph Meyering Sr at JAM PRO NW Studios has you covered. He’s also a great musician. Lightnin' Joe Blues Band I heard and saw it. 🙂 #studios #recordingstudio #bluesharmonica #singers #musicians #porttownsend #washingtonstate #olympicpeninsula #destinationrecordingstudio

Some people have mixed feelings about Amazon, but I am one of those people that really likes Amazon. One reason is they pay musicians like me to perform live music for their employees. I also like that I can order whatever I want and not have to deal with being followed around a retail store by some ignorant person who thinks people with brown skin steal. Lol. If all the corporations in Seattle would support artists, we would not have to move out of Seattle. Culture attracts people! : ) But here’s is something I learned.... “Houdini was the code name for Prime Now, which launched in December 2014, and—almost like magic—delivered customer orders in two hours or less. The building “Houdini” houses three eateries operated by the Seattle nonprofit organization FareStart, which helps people escape poverty by teaching them skills they need to succeed in the food service industry and in life. Incorporating two historic buildings in its design, "Houdini" features the original rooflines and ornamentation of the 1927 Troy Laundry Building and the 1938 Boren Investment Building, both of which have been declared Seattle landmarks.” That’s where we will be on 7/23/19 at 12 pm.

Tyler Perry’s BET award speech was inspirational. Thank you for having perseverance and vision. Your presence and accomplishments inspire us all. Here are a couple of quotes. “The studio was once a Confederate Army base,” he said. “And, I want you to hear this, which meant that there was Confederate soldiers on that base, plotting and planning on how to keep 3.9 million negroes enslaved. Now that land is owned by one negro.” “While everybody was fighting for a seat at the table talking about #OscarsSoWhite , #OscarsSoWhite , I said, ‘Y’all go ahead and do that,’” he said. “But while you’re fighting for a seat at the table, I’ll be down in Atlanta building my own. Because what I know for sure is that if I could just build this table, God will prepare it for me in the presence of my enemies.” #tylerperry #bet #inspiration #motivation #ifyoubuildittheywillcome

It’s official, my current day job will end at the end of this month. My core, my light, my ability to create, and my love aren’t defined by it. Losses are gains which show you even more ways to create like this homemade candle. Let your light shine. The next concert will celebrate the lives of those who were lost to cancer, the caretakers, and those who have been diagnosed. #letyourlightshine #everysetbackisasetupforacomeback #iamasurvivor #andstillirise #nammyorengekyo #nammyohorengekyoismylife #inspire #walkthroughthefire #truthwillprevail #karma

You may be going through something. Maybe one of the many isms are being submerged onto you. Maybe you have lost your job. Maybe someone you love has passed or left you. Don’t let anyone change the core of who you are. I see a lot of inhumanity in the world lately. I’m unable to be fake or be around fake people. When people lie, it tells you the truth of who they are. I choose to live my life and appreciate all the real people. All the good people. Whatever you are going through,choose love and if you do have to fight, fight the good fight. #civilrights #humanrights #sincerity #loveyourlife #motivation #survival #determination #perseverance #ourworkisneverdone

If you understand that all relationships are built on connections and finding common ground, you can conduct business with anyone. My mother told me about this great documentary on Netflix called “the Black Godfather.” Check it out. It introduces us to an impactful entertainment business power broker.

Happy Loving Day! My mother is African-American and my father is Belgian. Love to the Lovings for all that they went through to simply love each other. Their last name is so appropriate. #yestolovenotohate Richard and Mildred Loving Supreme Court case wiped away the last segregation laws in America. “Loving Day is an annual celebration held on June 12, the anniversary of the 1967 United States Supreme Court decision Loving v. Virginia which struck down all anti-miscegenation laws remaining in sixteen U.S. states.[1][2][3] In the United States, anti-miscegenation laws were U.S. state laws banning interracial marriage, mainly forbidding marriage between non-whites and whites.” #interracialcouple #interracialcouples #interracial #biracialcouples #biracial #biraciallove #african -American #americanhistory #history #virginia #belgium #belge This picture is of the Lovings.

Look closely and you will see the lash marks on her back, but in spite of the abuse she endured, she still has her crown, because she will always be a queen. My mother introduced me to the poetry of Maya Angelou when I was a young girl. This beautiful,captivating painting by @artbywak reminds me of the poem “And Still I Rise” You may write me down in history With your bitter, twisted lies, You may trod me in the very dirt But still, like dust, I’ll rise. Does my sassiness upset you? Why are you beset with gloom? ’Cause I walk like I’ve got oil wells Pumping in my living room. Just like moons and like suns, With the certainty of tides, Just like hopes springing high, Still I’ll rise. Did you want to see me broken? Bowed head and lowered eyes? Shoulders falling down like teardrops, Weakened by my soulful cries? Does my haughtiness offend you? Don’t you take it awful hard ’Cause I laugh like I’ve got gold mines Diggin’ in my own backyard. You may shoot me with your words, You may cut me with your eyes, You may kill me with your hatefulness, But still, like air, I’ll rise. Does my sexiness upset you? Does it come as a surprise That I dance like I’ve got diamonds At the meeting of my thighs? Out of the huts of history’s shame I rise Up from a past that’s rooted in pain I rise I’m a black ocean, leaping and wide, Welling and swelling I bear in the tide. Leaving behind nights of terror and fear I rise Into a daybreak that’s wondrously clear I rise Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave, I am the dream and the hope of the slave. I rise I rise I rise. Maya Angelou #Repost @artbywak with @repostsaveapp · · · My latest..."

The next performance will be to help celebrate cancer survivors and to help raise money to fight cancer. Each year, more than 4 million people in over 20 countries raise much-needed funds and awareness to save lives from cancer. There will be several events throughout the day including an opening ceremony honoring everyone who's been affected by cancer and everyone who has contributed to the success of this year's Relay season , a Survivor/Caregiver Walk honoring their strength with every step they take, and a Luminaria Ceremony representing everyone touched by cancer. You may have noticed that my performances have been staggered. I’m not sure what will be occurring with my day job. The search continues. I’m at a point where I have to make a certain amount for each show. This particular cause is one that I am willing to donate my time and spirit to, because I lost my maternal grandmother and my aunt to cancer. The event is called Relay for Life South Snohomish County WA. The date is June 22nd. The location is MCCOLLUM PARK 600 128th St SE Everett, WA. It will be a duo. Matt Williams will be on guitar. We go on at 4pm. June 22nd is also my birthday. All cancer survivors, those who have been diagnosed with cancer, and caretakers have my respect. #cancer #americancancersocietyrelayforlife #americancancersociety #cancersurvivors #cancersurvivor #snohomishcounty #everett #mulkiteo #snohomish

Happy Pride Month, In my life, I can think of several times when gay men took me under their wings and gave me guidance or comfort. I remember going to see drag shows and being in awe. I can also relate to being born with a trait which you have no control over and being treated unequally because of it.I think love is love and whoever you find that with is between you and that person. It’s none of my business. Be yourself and love who you want.
