Merry Christmas to everyone
and here's hoping everyone has a wonderful 2013. There were lots of new beginnings
for me. Not only did I put out my first CD of original music this year andmake my
first video but I also tied the knot on the beach in October with my best friend,
co-writer, co-producer, and partner Daniel Cooper. It was a glorious vacation there
and we enjoyed all that Hawaii had to offer including great weather, great hiking,
great water, and great food. It was a blast! We came back energized after a year
of bearing down on all the different things we do.
truly was thrilled with all the radio stations both domestically and internationally
who played my "record" this year and continue to find that I am played
on radio stations both on blues radio and country radio. Nothing like that sense
of discovery when you find your name on a playlist you didn't know you were on.
Thanks to all my fans for giving me support and encouragement. Some of you
have told me that I have inspired you to do some of the things you've always wanted
to. I can't think of any greater reward than that. If I inspired you, I am honored.
Please remember me when you are putting house concerts together or organizing that
festival in your town. I'm looking forward to some more performances!
I'm in the process (sometimes a long process) of starting to assemble a new
set of songs, and hopefully start recording again. Right now, I'm looking through
my back catalog and writing some new songs and will continue to do so through next
year. In the meanwhile, my project "The Long Way Around" is in the process
of being promoted in the U.K and I still have this notion that I want to play in
Europe. We'll see, what happens this coming year...My CD is available on CD Baby
and on my website www.melaniedyer.com, and digital downloads are available on ITunes.
I hope you're enjoying the eggnog, and that the holidays are
good to you! Please check in from time to time and I'll do the same!
Keeping the dream alive, you do the same...
