"There's a Way Through" to 'Lori Jean'
Saved by the acts of expression rebelling to the limits of a proper young lady.
By: Lori Finnila
Lori Jean connects to her childhood connection with music when returning to school to study music while fighting for her life.
She finds the beauty in alternative ballads remembering herself dancing on the front lawn in front of her mother by the front window to get her attention for dance lessons-or now finding it was always complete lessons in artistry she needed and was longing for to find her gifts. Rebelling sitting in trees and on her head like her mentor Pippi Longstocking, and having a mischievous, sensational yearn to read Nancy Drew mysteries to solve neighborhood crimes were signs of discontent without her music. Being discovered as an analogy words genius at 13 by her eighth grade English teacher, Ms. Doucette, now Mrs. Duffy, she led a confused life not understanding the emphasis or meaning of her gift. Not allowed to attend acting school she ventured New York City alone in her early twenties trying to find her gifts. She made many great friends and met many great people who all wanted her to act, all the way up to the William Morris Agency that let her randomly walk through their doors and leave a headshot. She left a headshot with soap casting director Damico as another told her she would be sure to be seen again. Once again she didn't understand the told intensity in her eyes to her greatest gift-they all knew she would make it?? What was she was making though she thought? She found herself, the true insides that is, recently when she faced 'The Land of Poo Poo' (her act of expression rebelling against the common limits and expectations of a proper young lady) as she copywrites continuing to paddle her little hands through family manure fields of Canada playing wheel barrel against two French generations standing behind as her opening act for "The Comedy Store" in Hollywood (which she now hopes to find in her own show in Vegas sometime) among many well known greats!! Who?! Me, she thinks??!! Why me?! She turned it down expressing she didn't have enough money to bribe the 20 guests needed for the attendance requirement, but learned who she was and her beauty inside of her.
Continuing into this release is a written dedication to her onlooking Portuguese grandmother who saved her life with adorn when Lori faced many life threatening convulsions as a child. Along with a song, "Ashes on My Cup," raptured with inspiration from sex and drugs immersed on her Christmas gift mug from her child by her then roommate is being included in this album.
