About 12 weeks ago GRAMMYS IN MY JAMMIES
Were you watching last night? What did you think? Here's my silly little reaction recap because the only thing really missing was a Hangout performance with us and all of you! Right? :)

MY REACTIONS

PINK: If a popstar had to save my life I'd want it to be Pink. 

FAVORITE ACCEPTANCE SPEECH: Jay Z - "Look Blue! Daddy got you a gold sippy cup!"

LORDE: I so love that this girl is getting recognized for doing her thing. So artistic and fresh. I loved the sparseness of the arrangement and performance. Besides a Hangout that's my favorite kind of show... Lights low... Instruments loud... Pin drop rests... Vocals soar... Gorgeous. 

Side-note: +RAM Rich and I both loved seeing Lorde accept "Song Of The Year" side by side with her co-writer and producer Joe Little. Maybe this girl / producer duo will have the glory of sharing that experience one day. ( #gottadreambig )

About 10 weeks ago LAUGH
Hey G+niuses! You know my beloved motto, my mantra "Laugh In The Face Of The Lion"... But what do you do when the lion is you?

I know sometimes the grumpiest growl is the one coming from inside, a little self-doubt, a worry, a fear, the nay-sayer who nit-picks every move you make... When the obstacle is outside of you maybe it's easier to leap because at least you can see it. So when it's you, what do you do? I've been writing new songs and came to that question inside myself, in my lyrics, and then with a giggle that felt like champagne bubbles I realized the answer was encased in my original line... laugh.

If you're the lion, laugh at yourself. Damn it's funny and it feels fantastic, like dropping the ballast on the biggest baddest hot air balloon.

This year, we're flying my friends.

Love you guys like crazy! 
XO, Daria

Ps. Love you so much I have a question to ask... Will you be my valentine?? More on t

About 3 weeks ago EMERGING FROM THE SONG CAVE
Hey my G+niuses! Is the fresh breath of spring starting to hit you yet? I feel like it's finally reaching me, pulling me out of a magical hibernation in what I've started to call The Song Cave...

The journey started out dark... Dank... Exciting but a little scary... I felt like I'd been away from my purest form of creative process for longer than I'd meant to... Would I still know my way around? What would be waiting for me around the now not-so-familiar corners? Would new melodies I'd begun to uncover still be waiting for me, or would they have retreated back into the mist, like shy little nymphs? Would the new songs open up to me, or recoil and curl up like exotic fanciful flowers that don't like to be touched? 

I admit over the last couple months, it took me a while to find my way again. For the strings of my guitar to feel like extensions of my hands... For my voice to come more quickly in melody than talk... For my courage and

About 14 weeks ago YEAR OF THE HORSE
G+niuses! Did you know that 2014 is the year of the horse? Well I say, "GIDDY-UP!" What wild horse-of-a-dream are you ready to ride this year? What new goals have you started taming? What jumps are you galloping over? Tell me me yours, I'll sing you mine ❤ 

BACK IN THE SADDLE
I'm so happy to be back in the saddle here with all of you! I sat out last week to rest my little injured wing and now that my arm is back in action, so am I! I'm a guitar-playing, laptop-typing, lyric-writing fool! :)

BAREBACK
This photo is one of many from an crazy-fun shoot I did back before the holidays. As you know I've been working away writing new songs to sing to you all and one of them has a lot of horsey metaphors... (song reveal coming lataz)... I can tell you it's about breaking out of the mold, out of your constraints, being untamed, finding your confidence and self-reliance and the wild freedom and fierce joy of that feeling... Like the win

About 11 weeks ago This photo was taken last spring and was one of the best experiences. A doe left her fawn in my yard for a day while she went off to feed. She did come back to retrieve her fawn later that night. I never touched the fawn but had the best time taking  photos.

About 2 weeks ago RECORD
It's interesting... In the beginning a record was called a record because it was just that, a recorded moment in time. Captured sonic evidence of something that had happened. I remember when I was little and there was a Beatles album released that included demos and snippets of conversations happening between the band, jokes and teasing and talk of which chord voicings to use or when the drums should hit...

While it totally irked my folks who knew those iconic Beatles songs so well that it was jarring to hear them stripped down and pulled apart.. I was mesmerized by that behind-the-scenes sound, the sense that I was transported in time and space and placed into that room with them. I think I've been in love with that idea ever since.

That's why I wanna take you G+niuses into the studio with me. Details and dates and all kinds of dishing are on the way... And you should know that where ever you are right now... I'm sitting in this exact spot preparing to share
