This Just In…Breastfeeding Great for Creativity!

Natalie Merchant’s newest cd Leave Your Sleep  was written while she was breastfeeding…

“I was breastfeeding six hours a day, and I felt this burst of creative energy,” she explains in an interview for The Scotsman. “In my mind I had all these visions of projects I wanted to do and things I wanted to make, but I couldn’t leave my chair, and I had my hands full. So I just put a tape recorder next to the chair where I was nursing, and I would start singing into it, and that’s where the first songs came from. I didn’t really have time to focus on writing lyrics.”

Love, love, love her voice! If you’re a fan, you’ll love this new cd!
