“The Next Big Thing”
This issue's Music Picks is the debut album, "The Next Big Thing," from one of our very own: S Factor lover, student, devotee and all-around exceptionally Erotic Creature, Theresa Walker. In her own words, she told us how writing and recording this album helped her overcome insecurities every woman faces.

In my new album "The Next Big Thing," I was really looking at the idea of actually not "making it" as a singer/songwriter. I was at a point in my life where I was questioning why I was in the music business and feeling very discouraged. The scariest thing I can think of is being an old woman and looking back on my life knowing I didn't give it my all, letting my own fears stop me from living the life I wanted. So this album became about me wanting to live my best life and at the same time recognizing when I wasn’t.
I hope my global sisters in S find their own story in these songs; the joy, the hope, and the pain that makes us complex and wonderful. I hope it inspires them to pursue what they REALLY want out of life…and never settle for less!
I just got a pole in my living room so it's on now! I try to practice a little every day and it's really great to feel myself get stronger. I’m proud to say I can finally climb up the pole, which is huge progress!
Much love to my S women Janelle Taylor and Amanda Pomeroy, who has been a student for three years, and all the girls who came out to my CD release party last October. I love you… See you in class!

Thank you Theresa for your candor! Ladies, prepare to be serenaded by an angelic doll with a honey-coated voice, sweet with sass, soul and triumph.
Our favorite track is definitely Bubbles Up with its yearning, silently whispering scream for "everything I never could express." It speaks directly to every woman's heart, stirring up all those emotions that make us so uniquely female. Have some tissues handy!
