In 2002 I began working on what was to be my final CD, A LIKELY STORY. I had been writing songs since I was nine, and had been recording and making records since I was nineteen. From the age of nineteen until I was forty-two my life’s focus was to hone my songwriting skills, and to plan for each upcoming record. I lived to make music, and it was great fun!

The new songs I had written were intended to be straightforward, more literal, less metaphorical than those on my other records. Many of them were quite personal, fuzzy memories mostly that I felt I needed to make clear. The arrangements were straightforward too, essentially the same as those we played at our live concerts.

This song, Sitting in the Big Chair was one of the first I wrote for that CD. The world needs more songs about furniture, I figured. And so it began.

    • Hi Rob, Thanks for checking this one out. No, I don’t have plans to go into the studio anytime soon. I finished writing a children’s book earlier this year and hope to put it out next month. After that, I’ll be working on a follow up. Then maybe some more music, who knows? It’s nice hearing from you. I hope all is well with you too.


  1. Greetings from Texas Caron! Always great to see a new entry on your blog.
    I remember when you were recording those songs. I asked you what color the Big Chair was, and you said “Black, aren’t they all?”. Still makes me chuckle whenever I sing along with it. I loved that album a lot.. but I loved all your music. I still have them and play them here. Have had a few friends ask me who that amazing voice is. I always tell ’em how awesome your lyrics and music is are too.
    I don’t remember if I ever sent you a link to the video that my then client Todd did with your song Joy for his book trailer. Your final track on A Likely Story.. and most likely my fave of all your songs.
    Here it is just in case:


  2. Hi Romana!
    So you live in Texas now do you? It’s nice to hear from you! Thanks so much for your kind words and for your support over the years. It is, and was, very much appreciated.
    Best wishes and have a wonderful new year!
