Life is so odd, so awesome, so fun, so tough.....It is complex all the time, simple some of the time, juicy at its best and empty only when we let it be. People often share with me their stories and I get to share mine through song. It's that beautiful and mysterious intermingling of our lives that keep us strong, on our toes, learned, and grateful. Thank you for being with me on my musical, public, and personal journey.
One person I greatly admire is my dear friend and musical colleague, Wendy Colonna. She and I have worked a bunch together through the years, traveled together, cried and laughed together.
Here's a downloadable version of Concrete Blonde's "Joey" featuring Wendy Colonna, Ginger Leigh (that's me!), Noelle Hampton and Andre Moran, recorded live at the Bugle Boy! <a href="https://soundcloud.com/gingerleighmusic/joey-live-at-bugleboy" target="_blank">Click here to download it.</a>
Wendy is an incredible person, a unique and stylish vocalist with strong pipes(!), and a stellar songwriter. She works so hard at this! I admire her drive. She is crowd-funding her new CD. I've been privy to some of the tracks, even got to sing on some. Please go pitch in to help her reach her goal! 15 days left and she is at 44%. If she doesn't reach the goal, she gets no funding and we don't get to watch her succeed. That would stink! PLAY A PART in making this record!

And just for the heck of it....about one year ago I created this song and video from scratch. Every single note, beat, visual, editing I did on my own...just being creative. I hope you likey likey!
