It's Busy Season
Last week was full of interesting moments that continue to fuel my belief in the music career I'm pursuing. I spent a night in the recording studio, working on backing vocals for Jordan White's "Maybe Amy," and found the whole process very rewarding. To be this close to finally having an official CD (three tracks coming soon) creates a great feeling of accomplishment. With a great producer and amazing musicians, I know it will be a successful venture.
On Saturday I played with Jordan in my first Musikfest venue, which turned out well despite the rain. The South side of Bethlehem near the Sands will eventually be an amazing venue area, once everyone is more aware of it, but I do want to thank everyone who came out! We even got a mention in the Express-Times:
That same day, I traipsed out to Bristol, new territory for me, for a show at the Dog and Bull Music and Brewhouse. It was a very cool little bar with super friendly staff and a chance to introduce our originals to a new group of people.
And don't forget, September 10th puts us at Stabler Arena with Idol contestants Crystal Bowersox and Eliott Yamin, and up-and-coming artist Carmen Magro. The show's theme is "Rev It Up for Juvenile Diabetes" to further research on the disease. The show starts at 7:30pm.

So as you can see, I and my band mates have been busy lately, but in a very good way. Please feel free to comment or tell your friends to visit my site- and I look forward to seeing all of you at a show soon!
Life is Music...and Sometimes Music is Life
It's been a very stressful year for many reasons...but today is a new day, and I'm heading out to a Phillies game at Citizens Bank Park, feeling calm. (and excited because I haven't seen a game in years). I spent a good share of my late night with two very good college friends that have always been there for me, and I'm so grateful I had time to spend with them.
After an awesome show last night at the Promenade Shops in Center Valley, I sort of feel like things are starting to fall back into place. Thanks to everyone who came out- we really appreciated the support. I especially enjoyed the little kids who ran around in circles and danced through every song- it made me realize that kids have no inhibitions...if they feel like dancing, they dance. It's sort of inspiring to see how music moves them, because I was that little girl once. And now, at almost 29 years old, I am still letting that music move me, just in a different capacity. I want nothing more than to be able to perform for the rest of my life and inspire others to always keep music close to their hearts because it's healing, therapeutic, enjoyable, anything you want it to be. That's what I love about music- it can be so many different things to so many people. And that's all I've wanted all along- to sing beside my awesome fellow musicians, Jordan White and Brian Kibler, and know that we're keeping the music at the forefront of our goals.
So I guess....thank you supporters, thank you friends, thank you to my band mates...and thank you God for letting music be my gift. I will return the favor :)
