Licity Collins • THE OPEN DIARY
A living love letter on the intimacies of music making,
tiny-space living,and inner and outer fires.


Read a sample excerpt (or listen below)


Record recording, sleep-depriving roosters, lost radio stations, unexpected funerals, a once-in-a-lifetime album debut and an ever-present composting toilet. What more could you want?

I began writing THE OPEN DIARY while my debut album finds its way through a painful production roadblock. Sitting in the sun-filled window seat of my new tiny-house-like home with no plumbing, after a liberating downsize, I cry as my favorite classic-rock radio station goes off the air. Two weeks after that first diary entry, the sky turns read as the largest wildfire in California history begins its ominous raging crawl which will surround my town in a ring of fire. I re-mix my album from my car filled with my most valued possessions from three different evacuation locations as I wait to see if my new tiny-space and the few things I still own will be annihilated. I thankfully return to an intact home and bolster my courage to begin the media campaign for the launch of the album. Then, the day the first press release is scheduled to be sent out, my mother dies—after a long illness, but unexpectedly. I receive only two days notice. Four hours after she dies, the final album files for my first album, and greatest labor of love, arrive in my inbox.

That's just the first three months...

I write this all as a letter to you. You are with me always. I then post a juicy multi-entry installment and playlist at the end of each month. Each entry begins with a “Now Playing” song forming a soundtrack as you go. You are invited inside of the constant, entertaining, maddening, illuminating mental dialogue of being an artist and the sounds that inspire me. Make yourself a warm beverage and sit down with me for a while.
