about

"It's time to live the life I'm given
time to give what I've been asking for"

I am so grateful for the magic and talent and love of the musicians who came together to be a part of this beautiful experiment with me, and the brilliant community that joyously breathed life into its lungs. You believe in me, and I believe in you. Thank you.

Special Thanks to Andre, Phil Collins, Uriah and Amanda Brown, Elie and Lisa Samuel, Zeina and Rich Evans, Carol Kilgore, Daisy O'Connor, Alyse Black, Strangely Doesburg, Aaron English, and Ani Grey.

Extra Special Thanks to Joss Whedon. Ships are meant to sail and you have helped steer mine towards a brave new horizon.

And Will~ my best friend, the father of my chickens, and the kindest, smartest, most talented boy I know~ thank you. For everything.

about

Shawnee Kilgore Austin, Texas

"Shawnee Kilgore is to music as velvet gloves are to diamond cutters,” wrote James Hardesty, owner of the Green Frog Acoustic Tavern in Bellingham, WA. “She holds all this beauty in her hand, raw and untouched, then she chips away until it gleams in the light, holding on with a soft gentleness that she has perfected." ... more

Track Name: Screen Door
i could tell you had a secret
i could tell you had a song
i could tell you wouldn’t keep it
through the night
until the dawn

oh and you don’t stop rockin’
come come a’knockin’
on the screen door after sundown
there’s an old moon rising
stars in her eyes
and she can laugh ‘til the work
is done now

could it be that i was restless
could it be i wasn’t well
i’ll be dancing in my best dress
and i will give the angels hell

oh and you don’t stop rockin’
come come a’knockin’
on the screen door after sundown
there’s an old moon rising
stars in her eyes
and she can laugh ‘til the work
is done now

‘cause something happens in the moonlight
something happens in the dark
there never was a way to swoon right
it just depends upon the spark

oh and you don’t stop rockin’
come come a’knockin’
on the screen door after sundown
there’s an old moon rising
stars in her eyes
and she can laugh ‘til the work
is done now
Track Name: Broken Anymore
I will find the words one day
and they’ll be simple
and I smile when you say
Well now isn’t that from Kerouac
I said I’m happy that you know that
I said I’m happy

It’s time to live the life I’m given
time to give what I’ve been asking for
If I pretend that I’m not breaking
honey maybe I’m not breaking anymore
Maybe I’m not broken anymore

Once upon a time I sought light
in the darkness
I’d forgotten mine
I’d forgotten how to trust
that I’m in tune and I’m on time
and I’m happy

It’s time to live the life I’m given
time to give what I’ve been asking for
If I pretend that I’m not breaking
honey maybe I’m not breaking anymore
Maybe I’m not broken anymore

I will find the words one day
Track Name: Ships Are Meant to Sail
ships are meant to sail boy
and yours will have its day
i’m coming here to tell you
i’ve got some things to say
oh i’ve got some things to say

it’s always good to see you
i love to watch you shine
and i love to be the quiet
i know you need sometimes
oh i know you need some time

but some other day
some other life
we’ll take all these chances
and make them all right
when love is a language
i can’t figure out
could you be with the one
that you can’t be without

ships are meant to sail boy
you’ll make it from these shores
home is just an island
and i’m wishing i was yours
oh i’m wishing i was yours

i take you as you are
you’re always on your own
i hold you when you let me
and leave the rest alone
oh leave well enough alone

but some other day
some other life
we’ll take all these chances
and make them all right
when love is a language
i can’t figure out
could you be with the one
that you can’t be without

could you be with the one
that you can't be without

you will find my heart
in a boat beside the bay
but i’ve lingered long enough
and now i best be on my way
oh i’ve lingered long enough
and now i best be on my way
