True Margrit, False Margrit & Margrit Eichler Ph.D

Did y'all know there are TWO Margrit EIchlers?? Yep! It's true. One is me--Margrit Eichler, songwriter/singer/ pianoplayer & your hostess here on the True Margrit Captain's Log. The other is Margrit Eichler Ph.D-- a Canadian author/ sociologist specializing in gender studies/ feminism at University of Toronto. If you google "Margrit Eichler" you'll in fact get the both of us! This happened recently to a promoter looking for juicy tidbits to add to a blurb about me for a show. The upshot? I was described as a feminist scholar! It was tempting not to correct anyone--it's kinda exhilarating & empowering to be Dr Margrit, but truth is best. If I didn't fess, up I'd be False Margrit, would I not?

For your edification--here's a link with images of both Margrits:

Will the True Margrit please stand up?

The album is in fact done--we now only have to :
1) master it ( always master your releases, my friends--it's the icing on the audio cake & god knows what a dreary/ tinny/ and or boomy place the world be without the buttery creamy icing of mastering!)
