"Freight Train"
(Mother Hubbard mix)


Aligned with National Indigenous Peoples' Day

"Freight Train (MH mix)" asks us to be honest with ourselves: Can we handle the truth, accept what is, reconcile and move forward together?

One seriously amazing voice” - Brett Smith-Daniels, Luxton Fair

Indigenous Music Countdown #2 & #6

Indigenous Music Countdown #2 & #6


Very happy to say that there have been two Top 10 singles in the Indigenous Music Countdown since last December:

"You Are Light (Lynne's Song)" - my tribute to my sweet mama, made #7 and #2 in December 2022.

And "Freight Train (Mother Hubbard mix)" - my friend Glen Hubbard's remix of "Freight Train" hit #6 this August 2023.

I also recorded three new singles in SPANISH/español this Aug-Sep in Tenerife, España with a fabulous producer/writer, Fabio Harmanus. What a treat and amazing time it was learning about different phrasings, pronunciations, themes of Latin Pop and Latin Urban music.

Live well, and listen to great music friends!
