Lovin' Life...again!

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!!
