Big Purr Music is Moving!


 
Virtually moving, that is...  Big Purr Music is boycotting the web hosting company GoDaddy, and we are encouraging others to do the same.  We have been using GoDaddy as our web server and email provider since we first started our company. We’ve only recently discovered the inhumane and unethical practices displayed by GoDaddy’s former CEO, its largest shareholder and founder, Bob Parsons.

Big Purr Music Birthday Edition

 
Big Purr Music Birthday Edition
Susie Today is my birthday!  Not telling how old I am, but let's just say, hey, it ain't the years Baby...it's the mileage.  Fortunately, I feel remarkably jaunty in spite of (or perhaps because of) the variegated miles I've clocked in on this mercurial journey thus far.

I have SO much to be grateful for this year, namely, all of you.  Thank you for your support, and for listening to the songs from Restless via The Big Purr Newsletter over these past six months.

In honor of my B-day, I want to highlight the love songs from the album because, as John Lennon so very aptly affirmed, "Love is the answer, and you know that, for sure."

Special Edition - The Biggest Purr

 


Special Edition — The Biggest Purr  

Philanthropy is one of the guiding principles at Big Purr Music.  When Executive Producer Steve Cinocco and I created the company, we wanted to achieve our own aspirations, and at the same time, we wanted to do some good.  The Wild Animal Sanctuary is a key part of that vision.

New Songs for Spring

 
New Songs for Spring
New Album - RestlessDear Friends:

The month of March can be a mischievous jester.  It may bring a foot of snow, it may rain buckets, it may blow mistral winds that mess up our hair and mock our good nature.  Hang on!  Spring IS on the horizon! 


Here are a couple of songs from my new album Restless to accompany this capricious month.

New album 'Restless' released today!
 
Thrilling news!!!  My NEW ALBUM Restless is now available on iTunes & Amazon, and you can buy the CD directly from my website. 

Click HERE to listen.
 
This new collection of original songs travels across the American musical landscape from rootsy acoustic Folk and Alt-Country to vintage Rock riffs with a bit of jazzy Swing measured into the vibe.  Featuring stellar grooves by Kyle Zender (lead guitar) and Hill Baker (percussion) with special musical guests John Macy (pedal steel), Phil Norman (cello), Chris Speasmaker (keyboards), with background vocals by Thom Flora and Chris Woods, Restless takes the listener on a lyrical road trip, exploring relationships of all kinds along the way.

Season's Greetings from Big Purr Music!

It’s been a while since I’ve sent out a newsletter, but that doesn’t mean nothing is happening.  I have been working quietly behind the scenes . . . WRITING . . . a fascinating process for me, but quite dull for those around me.

I’m happy to report that all this thinking and writing has yielded a dozen new songs!  A new album is in the works, to be released next year.  Woo Hoo!

Mews from Big Purr

 
*** Music + News = Mews ***
Dear Friends and Fellow Music Lovers!

Like the squirrels in my backyard busily gathering their fodder for Winter, this Autumn finds me with my nose buried in my notebook and my paws on the fretboard composing new songs. I've also been polishing a few musical chestnuts to include in some LIVE performances to be announced early next year.
