my dear friends!
It's been a while
since I've sent an email. 2013 has gotten off to an amazing start, launching
with a performance at the NAMM show in Anaheim, CA and becoming the signature artist
for "The Engle." This drumstick for guitar has led to many exciting
opportunities and it is only the beginning of such a journey.
I just spent some quality time
out West in LA then Portland, OR. The trip was quite productive: recording
instructional videos for the Engle, finishing the instrumental album, and having
many enlightening experiences. I feel completely recharged as this was the
longest I've been in one place for the past three years. What a better place
to recharge my battery than Portland, OR?!? It's a magical place vibrant with great
people and some of the most peaceful energy I've experienced.
Carrying this energy back east,
some exciting events are on the horizon. First, this Tuesday I will be playing
Live in Studio on Air at WMNF 88.5FM Tampa. You can tune in to this show from
anywhere at www.wmnf.org, 11pm EST/ 8pm PST. The
performance will be a full hour of live music with some interviews in between.
Next, I am headlining
the New Seeds Festival in Tampa this Friday March 29th and Saturday March 30th.
New Seeds is the Southeast Women's Music Festival, presenting art from female
perspectives on socially relevant issues. I have two very special sets prepared
and will be traveling with an entourage of instruments. Here are the links
for tickets and info:

Also, I recently did a video for "Give and Take In" and am excited
to share it with you. Adam Thompson did a wonderful job capturing the essence
of this song in a nature environment. I was also particularly impressed considering
we shot the video in just over an hour. If you like it and feel inspired to
share you can re-post the link to your social networking sites. It would be
an honor to have you a part of this movement! In fact, the song is all about
putting a positive energy into the world and feeling it reflect upon us. Thank
you for the love and support! Here is the link:
