Maria Full of Joy CD Release

Maria Full of Joy CD Release

On January 30, 2017, I received a text from my brother saying that my best friend, and house mate left a suicide note. Three hours later, I watched the police Chaplain pull up and walk slowly up my porch stairs. I heard her mother scream louder than a fire truck siren. I felt my tears burn my face and fall on the porch swing where we used to drink wine and tell stories. In the weeks of numbness and tragedy that followed, I battled to understand how I didn't see this coming. Finally, after weeks of insomnia, I did the only thing I knew how to do when life really sucks.

I got out of bed at 2am and started writing.

Over the next year, and with the help of many hands, I was able to create a beautiful recording of her songs

They are my interpretation of the stories that she left me with.

The location that serves as one of McMenamins favorite neighborhood theater pubs was the locus of great spiritual zeal beginning in the 1890s. That's when the Swedish Evangelical Mission established its church here....

From a church to a theater-pub, the Mission's history ain't exactly saintly. Click here for more info!
