Getting My Throat Clear For Music
I've been working on moving up in the music business with my own style separating myself from the old 'Lori Jean' that was clashing against everything I was working on and about.

Happy 2020!
Happy 2020! The most important things are discussed in this episode: I met another woman abused from domestic violence with head trauma, I'm making progress towards music that connects me to who I once was before abuse, and I'm staying with important goals to attain higher achievements with my music, as well as met many new wonderful artists and organizations that support me. Special thanks to Minor2Go music loops at looperman.com. Without him, especially when I'm fatigued from running from abuse and my injuries and condition from it, he is there for me where I can fall so lovely into his music and express my lyrics with my vocals. This takes the stress work out of making my songs. For the full song here to download and enjoy visit my SoundCloud. Much love! And thank you for supporting me and listening to me.
