What Do Contests Mean Anyway ?
Salutations from your Muse! A BIG Welcome to all of
you who have just reached out over the past month! My ♥ thanks YOU for being a significant part of Aoede's extended family, and
I look forward to more connecting with you through FB, twitter, blog, and/or email!
Just sang the National Anthem at a baseball
game in Marin yesterday! It was an honor, and such a sweet place-full of warm, local
neighborhood people, lots of wide-eyed kids, and complete with musical chairs, burrito
eating contest, Drake the Duck mascot (gotta hand it to him-it was SIZZLING yesterday!)
and other races for the kids between each inning. Just the way baseball should be...

#2 TOP POP Artist thanks to YOU! Just sent a newsie bit out about it so won't say
much more here except YOU ROCK, and your downloads and shares are the reason. Please
download and Share on FB til Jul 30th!
May I just say, this Dodge contest has been much more than just a competition;
it has given me a chance to connect with so many of you! Already some new opportunities
are arising; I've made a ton of new friends who have discovered Aoede's music, and
it brings a smile to me that so many of you are so supportive of my dream! The competition
is fierce, and I am just crazy grateful to be given the opportunity! May I be able
to support your dreams too!

LETS PLAY!! ... but first, de Highlights-o-d-Month:
in Dodge Commercial?
to Play CureJM Jam, Hilsboro, OR Sunday, August 19th:
I am privileged to be telling my story and performing alongside American
Idol's Blake Lewis and Jessica Lerner for a fundraiser event for CureJM (Juvenile Myostis) Foundation. Basically, it’s
the children’s version of the same auto-immune condition that I have, so
it is near and dear to my heart. Further, Mason, a very special kid, tireless fighter
and light, just lost his battle to this wretched disease... so I’m hoping
I can inspire the kids and give them hope :) If you are in the Portland area,
or know folks who might be interested in this event, please send them info and
