Herndon is in the process of recording her fifth album. According to her social network site, her last album, "1,000 Pies," "contains tunes ranging from sweet acoustic ballads to straight-up country, rock and roll, and even a little red dirt jazz — skipping with ease between genres and showing hints of her inner bohemian." She began performing when she moved from Oklahoma to France, "first busking in the streets, then playing regularly with a group of fellow-vagabonds." In recent years she has toured regularly in Europe and the United States. "Her album credits are a who’s who of some of Oklahoma’s best musicians (but) Herndon is best experienced live — and she loves a live show, maintaining a commitment to the fun, camaraderie, and love through the mystery and beauty and power of song."
