Episode Title: “Lowered” Indy rock depths to Forgiveness and Freedom

Pat Parra: Indy rock star rising will be live to perform songs off his stunning new CD “Lowered” featuring the single “forget your love”.  Pat will also share his torrential 4 years recording this disc; the pain that inspired it and how his music provides the absolute vulnerability to express and release so that he moves forward in his life. Also joining Pat on the show is an incredible person and artist who does an amazing one woman play called my Brooklyn Hamlet: My Father Killed My Mother and Married My Aunt: Forgiving the Unforgivable. This is her story about love & hate, passion, numbness and how to find joy after you’ve lost everything.
