Jana Mashonee's CD New Moon Born is Music I Can Listen to While I Write
I’ve read a bit on Hubpages about people’s writing habits and how some people listen to music when they sit a their computers to create. I could never do that, until this afternoon.
At some point in my internet ramblings I came across Jana Mashonee’s music. She is a Native American singer from Robeson, NC who now lives in New York City. I remember thinking then that I should go back to her website and order a Christmas album. Never did, but apparently I signed up on her website because today I was notified of the new CD she has released called “New Moon Born”. I went to the site and it played the songs in the background as I continued to explore her musical history and accomplishments. I figured out how to join up on the Aboriginal Peoples Choice Music Awards web site and voted for her for best pop album.
As I was doing that, I realized that I could work (write) while the music played in the background. I was astonished because I have never been able to string two sentences together if there was any kind of distraction in the room. I took off to itunes and found the album there and it was a steal for $7.99! There are seventeen songs on this CD and they are all excellent. I am writing this now while the album plays in the background and it is so calming. Wow!
I want this poster!
While looking at Jana’s store I noted that she has a poster. I could simply buy it but it would be more fun if she gave me one. Here is how that might work. If only five of you loyal Hubpages followers of resspenser will go to her web site and sign up for her newsletter then let me know you did I can get a free one. If you like the music, please buy it from her site or on itunes.
Listen and watch this!
There might be a prettier version of Amazing Grace, but I haven't heard it.
