Goodbye Summer



Kids are back in school. I have had a great summer with them.  It has been quiet for me because I'm working on restructuring how I do my music business.  It is taking a lot of work , time and sacrifice.  Now we are busy with the first week of school! I have a Senior in High School, and a Sophomore.  These years are going to go by so fast, because we are at a crossroads with our son who is a Senior.  

I don't know how I feel about that.  Ty is going to be 18 in December.  He will graduate in June of 2019.  Then if he chooses, he will go on a mission for our church for 2 years.  If you don't know already I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.  I've been a member all my life.  

Now school is back in session, and I am back working on my music full time!  I hope you had a beautiful Summer!  I am looking forward to Fall! 


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
