Summer Tones with Lullatone

I just recently downloaded Lullatone's latest EP Summer Songs.  It's super fun and perfect for riding around on your bike with a popsicle on a sun shiny summery day.  My favorite song is "Splitting A Banana Split".

You can listen to the whole EP Here.

Check them out more Here.

Pacific Rim

The soundtrack for the new Guillermo del Toro film Pacific Rim is out now.  And I have the extreme honor of saying that I am featured on Track 7, entitled "Mako".  The film is scored by the über talented Ramin Djawadi.  The music is stunning and epic.  Tom Morello is also featured on the soundtrack!  You can read more all about it here.

The score was recorded at Sony Soundstage, where you see me being super duper focused in the photo above.  I had the chance to stand in the actual soundstage when the orchestra was recording.  I'll never forget the experience.  I had goosebumps all over, and it made me really emotional.  ;P

And let me just say, doing something like this, has been a dream of mine since I was a little girl singing "If We Hold On Together" from The Land Before Time at home, while my Mom played the piano part.  Ok??

Needless to say, I'm so excited to see this film in its entirety on its release, this Friday, July 12th!

Watch the trailer here.
