Just a fun little treat to start the week off right. Enjoy!
Well it’s been awhile since I’ve said hello and more importantly I have yet to wish you all a happy 2013! Good, I’m glad that’s over with.
I had an amazing 2012. I mean seriously, I opened the year by featuring at Red Devil Lounge’s open mic (where I got my SF music start) and rounded the year out with the recording of my first studio album. It doesn’t get much better than that. I also managed to meet a ton of new friends, musicians, and fans across SF and the country, went to more live music shows than I can count, found inspiration amongst good friends, strangers, nature, and wide open spaces, opened for Lindi Ortega who is breaking out in the country scene, and created this awesome little website (thanks, Tumblr!). Basically, it was a kick ass year.
With all that said and done, I’m totally ready to give 2012 a run for its money and make 2013 a real breakout year. In the works are some great upcoming shows in Northern California (announcement coming in the next week or two), writing new songs on guitar and ukulele, the introduction of the harmonica to my repertoire, and plans for a late summer tour. Yeah, I’d say it’s going to be good. Real good. But I wouldn’t be able to do this without all of the amazing people in my life. So really this is a thank you note for helping me out this past year. Whether you came to one show or a dozen, if we just met or have known each other since middle school, you have all had a huge impact on me as an individual, a musician, and an artist. This year is going to be for you and I hope to see you in the crowd at one of my upcoming shows.
