The April showers have brought on May flowers… Well sort of. At the moment whilst I’m waiting on some business things to fruit for touring, I’m busy writing lots of new songs for the next CD (no date for anything on that, just doing lots of writing). I’ve already got 26 songs mapped out. Eventually I think I’ll have some 40 songs to sift through by the time I’m actually done with Practical Insanity and off the road.
I’ve also been writing some material with Jan Linder-Koda and Heather Bradley. So far we’ve got a couple of songs geared for kids. One is called Peanut Butter and is very catchy. We’ll be pushing it to the likes of Sesame Street and other venues. Could even push to license it to a major peanut butter maker. We’ll see. We picked up jodyjanandheather.com to be the official site and name of the group.
The writers of the song Live Like I’m Rich (from the movie Material Girls starring Hillary Duff) have agreed to release the song digitally to iTunes, and other digital outlets. I know that it’s already been sent off, I’m just waiting word on when it actually hits iTunes. So when I know, you’ll know. For any Hillary fans wanting to find it, you won’t need to wait much longer. Same goes for all the fans that contacted me wanting to get this song.
In addition, I wrote a sports anthem called Do You Want To Play. Originally it was for the Women’s Professional Football League. It never got off the ground. I’ve recently re-recorded it. Gave it a more rocked out feeling, a little heavier, and re-wrote the lyrics to fit several sports leagues like the NBA, the NFL, the NHL, and a few local Los Angeles teams like the Lakers, the Clippers, and the Kings. I’ve put the collection of them together to be released on iTunes and they should also be available before the month is out. I’ve even clipped out the hook so that you could purchase it and make it your phone’s ringtone.
