Dusting off the bins from storage…still searching for the box with the lights…third trip to the grocery store in 2 days…The Holidays are Here!! Totally nuts…but it’s the best!
Ten Years ago this week
Get Used To It, Stephanie’s solo debut reached Number 40 on the R&R (Radio and Records) CHR/Pop Top 50 Indicator chart! After 3 months of climbing upward with “most added” and “most increased plays” rankings, the song broke onto the chart at number 47 — a monumental feat, seeing that we were 1 of only 2 independent artists on the chart. We were in a state of shock!
Such an emotional high...
…being right in there with Jason Mraz’s The Remedy, Maroon 5’s Harder To Breathe and John Mayer’s Bigger Than My Body, plus Christina Aguilera, Kelly Clarkson, Three Doors Down, and on and on.
Then such an emotional low…
…as the fall of 2003 was also the fall of much of the music business. Negotiations and deals that we thought were good to go, shut down in the blink of an eye. Such a roller coaster ride, this life.
We can say it with a smile now, since we followed up that first foray with our two biggest hits: Our two daughters, who fuel our creative spirits and inspired our next chapter, Sunshine Collective.
We have finally made the leap into the world of Instagram. No, the coffee was not some fancy gourmet, as you can see here.
Come join us to see our near daily posts.

I am busy updating / replacing our flash image gallery with the new, more flexible gallery. I hope this will make the site a little more exciting and definitely easier for us to update with new photos. Here is my first gallery, our album art:
