We had the good fortune of connecting with Helen Henderson and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Helen, we’d love to hear about how you approach risk and risk-taking
Taking risks has been a major part of my music career. In order to live ones Dream one must show up for ones vision and basically stick ones neck out. Allow oneself to be “seen” for ones authentic self regardless of the outcome. The public and even ones own family may choose to love or hate your art or music.
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I am a born storyteller. My voice is the instrument that carries my stories into the world, into the hearts and minds of anyone listening. I hope my songs lift people’s spirits.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
The Getty Museum. The Malibu Pier. The Santa Monica Pier and Venice Boardwalk. Hiking the fire trails in the Santa Monica Mountains. Swimming in the ocean. Bike riding along the bike path from Marina Del Rey to Topanga Canyon.
Eating heaps of Mexican food. Seeing live blues music in small beer joints
Going to The Melrose Flea Market on Sundays.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
My co writers and musical compadres Doug Hamblin, Matthew Downs and Jackie Bristow.
