In the next 24-48 hours I'm launching a fundraising campaign via PLEDGE MUSIC that I am going to be asking for friends to help me with. It's a little nerve-wracking to do it, but I really want my record to come out this year, and I need a lil help from my amigos. I'm so proud of this album. The music is finished, I just need help getting it into your hands. I've worked hard on many levels making music and becoming the writer I want to be, and finally I have something that I feel is representative of me. So bear with me friends, I think we'll all be toasting each other soon.
I also have more exciting news. I have a booking agent. Yay! Stacy Lee at Perfect Pitch Booking and I are working together to help me get out on the road and play some shows to support my record. I am really excited to see what happens next.
Folk Alliance 2016 in Kansas City last week was the best ever. Alliances were formed in the folkiest of ways. A bunch of weirdos in a contained space getting overdosed in song. Seriously good times. I was fortunate to play some of my own showcases this year, and the highlights of them were playing with John Calvin Abney, who I absolutely adore beyond comprehension. We did some live sessions in the Sweetwater Pop Up studio and soon I'll be able to post what was going on there.
Next week Nellie Clay and I are coming up to Ohio and Michigan to do a couple shows. We'll be at the Big Room Bar in Columbus, as well as the Pump House House concert in East Lansing, and another house show in Dayton OH. Send me a message for details on the house shows if you'd like to be included.
See ya on the internet, but hopefully you can find some time for sunshine too!
