A day late for #nationalsonday Nothing in the world even comes close to how much I love these two goofballs. Even when they drive me crazy, I don’t ever want to be away from them. luckily they’ve both signed contracts ( before they could read, of course;) and will never move out of the house. ❤️😍❤️

“Darby Jean” is streaming everywhere:) In case you missed the story behind my new song check below 👇🏼 And here are some beautiful pictures of beautiful Darby Jean and her beautiful family. ❤️ A few years ago, this sweet, beautiful family in our community lost their baby girl at 15 months. They found out she had genetic condition earlier in the pregnancy, but still wanted to have her… even if she didn’t survive the pregnancy or If she only lasted one day in the hospital. The family already felt a connection and wanted to let nature take it’s course. They were treated terribly by doctors ( making them feel like they were wasting everyone’s time, like they were a burden.) Their baby girl outlived every doctor’s prediction ( by far) and touched them in the most profound way. A few months ago they came to me and asked if I would write a song for their baby girl. Her name was Darby. Darby Jean Rubin. She was blind and could barely hear but she kicked and smiled when they played her music. They wanted Darby to have a song that would be forever….. It was a true gift to be asked to write this song. I’m forever connected to this beautiful family and to Darby Jean. As much Joy and love Darby brought the to the Rubins, it was a difficult time as Darby needed 24/7 care. They were never told that they had options for help and it was extremely difficult to navigate while they were focused on Darby. Cindy ( Darby’s mom) is now part of a legislative committee here in California in an effort to change California state law to help families who need help in this kind of situation. It’s called Darby’s Legacy ❤️

( this isn’t a new song or vid- but I woke thinking about it…:) I wrote this song right around this time, last year. I recorded my drums, guitar and vocals in my house and then sent to @btarmstrong to add his parts ( magic) and to mix. This process was so much fun we are still making music together this way…. Even today:) And dear god do I love making videos with @alantanner . You are both the best! 🍀🍀

Repost from @flowermoonrecords ….. : Introducing the Flower Moon Records “FMR” guitar pedal. A custom designed 3-in-1 Fuzz, Modulation (tremolo), and Reverb pedal. "Whenever I play with @mariataylor1111 , these are the sounds she wants from me,” said Ryan Dwyer (co-owner of Flower Moon Records & guitars for Maria), "warm mid-gain fuzzy, washed out, reverby soundscapes. The last time we were in Europe, my entire pedal board was lost with our luggage and we had to drive all around Paris trying to find replacements. I started thinking how great it would be if I had one pedal that would fit in my carry-on. During COVID, I started working with @palmetto_pedals on a prototype (inspired by the JHS VHS/Space Commander concept). I made one for Maria and myself, and we loved them so much we decided to share the sound!” We’re excited to announce a limited run, available now in our shop. Specs: • Individual controls & bypass toggles for each effect, with master on/off bypass • Additional side mounted gain knob and internal tremolo depth trimpot • Gorva 1590BB black sparkle enclosure, pink LED’s, and all black hardware • Hand built & designed in Florida by @palmetto_pedals

God… remember when we were told not to leave our houses and all the stores were empty and we had to learn to make bread to have bread and we couldn’t find toilet paper? Jesus … I mean… that was intense. I found this in my Dropbox and it reminded me 2 things. 1) music was what I turned to everyday to not freak out. 2) I love love singing with my siblings… even if thousands of miles apart:)

Thanks to my son for being camera man. And also thanks to him for inspiring me to pick up my guitar today. Also - anyone know why this old song of mine was Shazammed 700 times in Germany last week?? Weird. #folksongmelody
