I had a blast playing with Trevor Gordon Hall last night. We were special guests for the Stretched Strings Concert Series with Tim Farrell. I finally got to do a show solo, all instrumentals with tap, finger style and percussion except one song (Skywatching). I also got to unveil two songs I've been working on which were received very well. I'm thrilled with the way they turned out & the crowds response. This was also my first time seeing Trevor play and it was INCREDIBLE!!! He plays with a kalimba which was crafted just for him with the help of some people over at Martin Guitars and attached to his guitar, this boy has major coordination skills. It was a great music match so we plan on booking something soon, stay tuned for those of you who missed last nights event :)

I'm planning on doing a video blog, maybe tonight if I can get up the energy. I want to update you on "Never Say Goodbye", the song I planned a snippet of in my first video blog. I played it last night and I'm psyched about it! I also want to do a video of "When Corey Comes Around". I did a video 3 years ago when I first wrote it but it has evolved a lot since then so I want to share it with you. Of course I will include it in my set May 14 in Bethlehem so if you're not busy, come out and see it live!

RECORDING UPDATE: We are making plans to get in the studio to record a new EP and a few singles for other artists consideration. I'm ready to get these songs out there and into your ears! This EP will include PRETTY FEELING, HEAR ME OUT, THIS IS HOW I FEEL & more...

This past weekend was quite the adventure. We submitted months ago to showcase and attend this music conference in Cape May called "Singer Songwriter Weekend" & we got in! Not only did they accept us to perform but they also chose one of our songs (Skywatching) for their exclusive sampler that all the industry and conference goers take home with them. we also got to interview and get airplay that entire week in Cape May on 101.5 with Phil Broder, cool guy!! Our set went really well and Steve and Mike sand backup for the first time on Pretty Feeling. There's some bootleg footage of that but not sure it will make it out or not haha. We made a video blog of an acoustic version of the song in the hotel room the day of our showcase so I will edit that and put it up soon. Here are some random phone uploads : )

Playing With Pendulums

The last two months have been a rollercoaster for me. There have been SO many ups and downs. I was unfortunate enough to have two car accidents about three and half wks. apart from one another. Both accidents were caused by deer. The first accident totalled my green VW Beetle, the first car I ever bought on my own 7 years ago, me and the bug have a lot of good memories. Luckily I was unharmed in the first run in with a deer and I was grateful for that. I've heard so many horror stories. Infact, the same night I hit that first deer, someone hit a deer up near lake galena, it went through their windshied and landed in their front seat dead. That person was very shook up and thankfully the deer did not kill them. I got a new car one week to the day after my accident and it's great! It's the perfect gig car (honda fit sport). On my way to a lesson on a Weds evening, I was driving on County Line Rd. and a truck was coming the opposite direction, a deer ran frantically across the street, the truck hit the deer with such force with the corner of it's front bumper, the deer flew through the air and landed right infront of my car (this one was big and had antlers). $3000 dollars worth of damage to my brand new car, two weeks in the shop & this time a shoulder injury for me...needless to say, ever since, driving has been the root of horrible anxiety for me. My mother in law blessed my car with holy water when we got it back and I bought some deer wistles to be on the safe side. So far so good! My shoulder healed up nicely and after a string of bad luck, things are really starting to turn around. We've been on a radio promo expedition all over the US and we're getting played in all these other states, I've never experiences album sales like this. We'll get played in a city and the next few days, all these orders for the new album come in from those cities through various online distributers, it's SO cool!! We are also playing live on various college radio stations and interviewing which is a lot of fun! I'm right where I want to be & ultra excited to get started on recording some new songs!!! We are also getting ready to get into a music video project for Easier Said Than Done. We'll be headed to New York for some shows in December & January which we're totally stoked about! We'll be doing some touring this summer which will include at least one Philly date, we're still working out the details but everything will be listed in the schedule as we confirm bookings. Some film and television licensing is on the horizon as well as some big fundraising benefit shows that we are proud to be apart of. 2010 was a big year for us, we released our first album as a trio, went to #1 on the rock americana indie music charts in two categories the week we released, opened for national touring acts including Acoustic Alchemy and played some really cool music festivals. I think 2011 is going to be even more amazing! Cheers to never giving up, cheers to following dreams and cheers to all of the people who have bought my album!!
