a note from Rebecca:
I arrived at the AudioTree studio in Chicago - just a stone's throw from Intelligencia Coffee - with my hands empty (don't worry, eventually I got coffee). I walked up a few flights of stairs and found a beautifully built-out studio centered around a regal Kawai grand piano. The film crew was still setting up, so the gracious staff let me play until my heart's content. Dark room, bright light, just me and the piano. In the session, I performed 6 songs intertwined with a lovely chat about my woeful attempts to make home-cooked meals and not kill plants. I also debuted a new song.
"Lynda Mae" is the musical love story of Richard and Lynda, two of the sweetest, loyal fans I could ask for. Supporting my recent LP "Sleepless Nights," Richard commissioned me to write a song for his bride Lynda. This I did.
Six or so months later, I flew to Cleveland and performed a surprise concert for her at the historic House of Blues, a memory I will treasure forever. Creating something special for someone as a gift is in itself a gift - a labor of love. It was my joy to debut the song here, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed the process of its birth.
Thank you all for listening, sharing and supporting.
