September 12, 2019

"What should I call you?" I get this question a lot. Mainly it's because my name is Laura Clapp Davidson. No hyphen. Just my maiden name and married name joined together. This confuses people since they really want me to be a hyphenate or just go by one of the two name...

I have started exercising! I've never liked to exercise. When I was kid, my friends would want to run around outside. I, however, much preferred the confines of my house to the great outdoors.

Don't get me wrong, I love being out in nature. I love to camp, hike, boat an...

My inner artist and I have an interesting relationship. Sometimes we're besties, other times mortal enemies. The relationship is never boring but it can get a bit stagnant at times. 

Now is one of those times.

I don't think I've written a song in months. Maybe even...

I was recently sitting on the balcony of a resort in Jamaica. It was early, and the world was quiet. It was wonderful to be able to sit and take the scene in. I was on a much needed mini vacation with my husband, and it was amazing.

If you’ve been writing songs for a little while then chances are you probably have a method, whether loose or rigid, that you employ when tackling a new tune. Perhaps you start with the melody, or maybe you’re a work-from-the-hook kind of person. Or maybe, if you’re li...
