Recently, a group called the People Project decided to interview my mom, who runs a small music and film production label called One Trick Dog. It's a very interesting read, as my mom has had a number of twists and turns in her career, and is very insightful into the way the music and film industries are progressing today. You can read the entire interview as the link below. In addition, the music file featured on the site is a solo piano version of an original composition I wrote and performed entitled "Lilian." Take a listen while you're reading.
