They say that approximately 10% of the world's population is creative - artists, musicians, etc. Let's say that is mostly true, that means that there is about 700,000,000 people who are artists of some sort and/or musicians. Can you wrap your head around that?! I recently read a blog by a musician here in the United States who says he thought he was at the saturation point of discovering that there were some 500,000 musicians here in the United States alone, all who are GOOD at what they do, who write original songs, original originals. Compared to the world... that is a drop in the bucket. Amazing, eh? :)
Hey! Does anyone remember "Maurice and the Cliches" from the 1980s? Yes! Rose was a back up singer for this group. Or THE woman who started the whole "unplugged" 'movement' in the Los Angeles area which led to MTV's Unplugged! Yes! That would be Rose Hoene! And we in the Duluth area are very lucky to have her as one of our very own. She is celebrating her fabulous Six Oh on Saturday, March 1, 2014, at the Clyde Iron in Duluth, MN, with a lots of local musicians lending their time and talents to making it a wonderful evening of music, food, drink and fun! Suggested donation of $10 with all proceeds going to the Bluebird Foundation and the Music Resource Center - both organizations to help young musicians with what they need! Come and join us if you are in the area! Thank you!
Greetings everyone! My gig at the Lighthouse at Emily's was a good time had by all! Now I will be out of the 'lime light' for a couple of months while I earn my keep at my day job as an accountant during tax season. Yikes! ;) But.. I'LL BE BACK and will see you all soon! Meanwhile... please give my music a listen. I hope you enjoy! Thanks! I appreciate all of you much! XO Gina Lee
My CD Release Party at Beaner's Central was a wonderful success! Good, solid turnout! Janie's Love Child opened - they were awesome! Young cellist, Dan Richards, accompanied me on 2 songs. FUN! Thank you everyone! Thank you Jason Wussow, for the fab venue!

I am almost finished recording the songs for my sophmore album "A Soft Place to Land!" One more song to record, then I put on my producer's hat for the mix down and my designer's hat for the cover! Am sooooo looking forward to the finished product! Will let you all know when it's ready for sale!
I'm thinking about making my music my full time career instead of part time such as it is now..... I think I'll wish myself good luck in this endeavor and proceed with the necessary hurdle jumping!
Been playing RT Quinlans a lot. Love playing there, but sometimes the bar patrons are more interested in gabbing than listening....... still, it IS fun. Love playing the nursing homes too and they are there to listen to you.... an audience! I prefer to play for people who come just to listen to you, but I also like it when people get up and dance and have a good time...... where, oh where, is the best venue to meet both of these??? Will keep searching!
