I leave you with the cover of my very first CD. Released in 1999. This album is so special to me. Artwork by my uncle, the very talented Michael Zugin. I love this album and everything that went into it. It’s magical. All from the original paintings, to the lyrics, to my very first songs ever written in college (when I thought I was going to be a poet for a living, I guess songwriter isn’t too far off??!) This album went on to be featured as a favorite by the UW-Wisconsin Badger Herald front cover music article. I was shocked when I opened the paper my senior year. It was the beginning of a rock n roll dream!
