Over the past few years, her focus has shifted back to the creative world with her foray into singing and songwriting. Blackburn explains, “My plan was always to return to my right brain self after a stint living in my left brain. Other than my work, writing theme/title songs for movies and my upcoming EP of original songs based for the most part on current events, my goal is to develop an entirely new music genre: Songs in the Key of DNA, whereby listening to music played in specific keys in a precise sequence actually de-age us at a cellular level.
