Shelter (Muscle Shoals Remix) - by Donna Jean and the Tricksters 

In the past year, the word "Shelter" has only come to be more powerful in all our lives. This song was originally recorded by Donna Jean and the Tricksters, but has been remixed with stronger background vocals and a more tribal edge in the rhythm section. As writers, Jeff Mattson and I are thrilled with what came to life! It's time is now. Thank you for listening! All the best, Donna Jean

LIVE From The Living Room Wrapping Up 

Thank you to everyone who has joined me online over the past several months.  Performing for you is my favorite thing and I'm grateful to have been able to continue while we could not gather in person.  Now that live music is finally on the horizon, I will be wrapping up my LIVE From the Living Room series over the next month.  The final Sundays are March 14, March 28, and April 11, all at 4pm Eastern.  I hope to see you all there and I can't wait to see you in-person when DSO hits the road in April and beyond.
