I live in a forest here in New York. This morning I sat and listened to the birds singing and now there's a thunderstorm rolling in. This place is inspirational for writing. I've updated my website http://www.hilaryyork.com I have a bunch of shows coming up this summer. I've been practicing with my friends Kevin and Bob who will be accompanying me later in the summer for some shows. I'm having fun playing solo shows and writing new songs. I'm planning on recording in the fall. I miss Texas but New York is pretty great!
So, it's almost been a year since my "first" blog. I've been living in the Hudson Valley and writing new songs for my third record. I took a break from playing out much but now I'm slowly easing back into playing shows. I've met some great musicians up here and should start recording this summer. East Coast
I'm trying to get it together, get organized, whatever. This is my first blog in a long time. My website is my next project, learning to update it, etc. As far as music goes, I'm working on material for my third record. I like the writing process, and can't wait to lay low this summer. I don't have any scheduled shows for a while. Many of my band members are on tour with other bands and I'm focusing on writing. I'm learning a Nick Drake song for a movie I acted in last summer. It's called "Big Boy" and I sing in the film and four of my original songs are included in the film. I'm not sure when the movie will be out.
