Thank you to everyone who helped support the successful Kickstarter campaign for Immortal!
On February 22, 2019, I was in the studio with album producer, Dave Coleman, working on overdubs and recording background vocals with another talented friend & neighbor Kristen Cothron. We had a lot of fun that day, but I remember obsessively checking my phone every few minutes—anxiously awaiting the results of a recent biopsy.
I couldn’t sleep the night before, either, so I decided to get up and do something productive around 5:00 am. Dave had sent me rough mixes with a suggested tracklist, so I got everything in order and pressed play on the entire album for the first time. I was so excited to hear that it finally existed and spellbound by magical disbelief as the first song played. It felt like all of my dreams were coming true. I was elated. But as soon as the second song started playing, my heart sank. I thought, “Wait, this isn’t real life. No one gets to be this happy. I’m going to find out I have cancer today.”
