Listen

February Fog (2007)

a mix of storms and clouds at times the light will break through celtic folk experiments

the branch above (2008)

a mix of mossy stones, tangled roots, and sparrow stories.

Lost but not Forgotten (2009)

love.. followed.. lost.. remembered.. and confidence conquered. a month filled with sore throats and 50 hour work weeks...

Hope (2010)

This is the most lyrical album so far in my series of RPM challenges. I wanted to write little stories, little memories within each melody. Hopefully I succeeded with this! Enjoy. Canada.. this one's for you!

Far, Far Away (2012)

In 2011, I took a year off from the RPM Challenge. 2012 marks my 5th year doing this epic challenge. Within 29 days, this music was written & recorded. What a month! At times, I felt that I was running in circles. It’s funny how, in such a short span of time, days can be filled with the fog of past heartache, winter colds and sniffles, travels to here to there and back again. I felt I was very vocally and spiritually tired... But as spring fingers stretched, dreams were waking, yawning. Sometimes all we have is that dusty light peeking in the window. Not every egg in this nest is golden. This CD is a true reminder that you are holding a record in time… and nothing more Thanks for listening. www.jetbutterfly.com

Journey (2013)

I took chances in writing in a different style. I am usually a pure folkie...but my pop/rock voice wanted to have some fun. Not every egg in the nest is golden.. but it's a record in time..

The Wild (2014)

After two recent tours in Scotland, the echoes of little creatures, tiny spiderwebs, traditional music, and new instruments painted this Wild landscape. Some have broad strokes of colour while others are tangled in tiny lines and dances in certain hues....

A Great and Terrible Beauty (2015)

like a famine, i was hungry for the songs. the bites were small and welcomed. thankful, yet hungry for more.

There's a Right Way for Doing Wrong (2016)

This year was fun. History, mystery, reflection, and just plain silliness made the album. I spent less time on recording and production and more time on digging into stories. There are some bum notes and a few finger hiccups but it is perfectly imperfect just as it should be. And you get to hear my early morning voice and the roosters outside my studio. Consider this album as an inside peek to the life and fast times of a girl and her little red caboose. PS. Warning. This album contains Banjo. ;)

Sinners and Angels (2017)

a wild ride of a month, captured in single takes and in-between sneezes.
