My illustration “Always” appears in the 2011 edition of JET Streams, the CLAIR publication with stories, essays, and photos by JET alumni and JETAA International news.
My dear friend and fellow Aomori-ken JET, singer-songwriter Anne Sumner has just released her second album, Stating The Obvious.
Stating The Obvious, her second album features a mixture of piano ballads, laid-back acoustic songs and a bit of pop, expressing direct messages and accessible emotions (hence the title).
The album’s theme is that no matter how shy you are, everyone has the right to make their feelings known and tell the truth as they see it – and that often, in relationships, a lot of really obvious things are better said than left unsaid.
