Music Playlists...

I’m grateful that it is the month of March. Most of you know, I’ve experienced devastating losses since January. Two friends and my Dad. Normally, I take the trials in life in stride. This time it has been very overwhelming. To get out of bed and get moving has been very difficult. Getting out of the house is like trying to separate me from my warm comfort and familiarity. 

But, lately music has meant more to me this time. So many of you have messaged me, and shared with me your art, your passions and your musical playlists via Spotify, and iTunes as well as your concerns.  What a great blessing to me. When you do this, it is a personal expression of support. It also comes in as royalties. Which helps enormously with all the projects I am working on.

You have my thanks... blessings to you and your family for taking the time out of your day to share. 


Kori Carothers

A musician's path to her/his muse is sometimes an easy one. Other times, it is filled with potential pitfalls or unexpected obstacles. Kori Linae Carothers faced just that when, during a kindergarten health screening at the age of 5, it was discovered she was deaf in her left ear. Her young peers found out and the teasing began. In addition, throughout elementary and high school, Kori was constantly told she would never become a musician. Undeterred, she kept learning and practicing, never surrendering her dream. Despite these discouragements, Carothers was passionate about her calling and now, years later, she is an acclaimed pianist and keyboard player with four albums to her credit. Clearly, she is an example of a person following her muse with courage, humor, and determination. - Bill Binkelman
