Back in the country and reporting in.

I'm just back from Beijing China and preparing to return in September and December. I've partially solved the translation problem by first reciting my lyrics like a poem while my interpreter translates every line. Then, when they know what the song is about and what it says.... I sing it in English.

New song is finished and ready to record ... finding the time to do it is the challenge. But I hope you enjoy it when it's done.

I hope you have taken a moment or two to check out the songs and videos on my Reverbnation page and are enjoying my work. My three Albums and singles are all available on CD Baby, Spotify, and Amazon and I of course want you to buy just EVERYTHING! :-)

If you would seriously like to support my work on a regular basis (and only if you have the ability to help) I ask that you please consider being a Patron, Any amount on a monthly basis would be appreciated. Pledges of $10 or more receive signed copies of all three of my CDs as a thank you gift. Please go to my Patreon website and think about it. https://www.patreon.com/user?u=3392215

Have a great Summer!

Did you see me at Hollywood's HOUSE OF BLUES; THE VIPER ROOM, MOLLY MALONE'S, New York City's, CAFFE VIVALDI, Susan Surandan's SPin NYC, Berlin's X BAR and KING KONG CLUB, Tokyo;s SUPERDELUXE, Chicago's UNCOMMON GROUND? These are some of the world-class venues I've appeared in the last couple years. I really love performing live, but not everyone can make it to my shows. SOOOO. With the help of Alan Corcoran of 93 Records I continue to record (and hopefully SELL!) my original songs on CDs and electronic format. I get some of the finest artists to help me too including, Bob Boulding of the Young Dubliners, Sharlotte Gibson who backs Nine Inch Nails and about every other super act in the universe. WON'T YOU PLEASE GO TO MY CD BABY MUSIC STORE and get a song, a CD or all four CDs for youself or a friend you think my enjoy my work. I know there are friends who would help support this aspect of my work if they knew about it..... WELL... NOW YOU KNOW ABOUT IT! :-) Enjoy! http://www.cdbaby.com/Artist/LonMiloDuQuette

First the good news ... then the bad news, then the good news.

The good news is I won the popular vote by about 18,000 votes, but the bad news is the judges still didn't select me (perhaps the oldest contestant) as a finalist in the big Guitar Center songwriting competition. But the good news is I'm not discouraged. In fact... I wrote a new song..... "Don't Write Me Off" ! http://youtu.be/9qvZx1fwcEk

Did you know I also write books?

Did you know that in addition to writing songs and making music, I also write books (17 titles currently in print, translated in 13 languages). If you are at interested mystical and magical subjects you might want to check out my works on Amazon. They make great gifts easy to order and ship. Give it some thought this gift-giving season. http://www.amazon.com/Lon-Milo-DuQuette/e/B000APMYTA/ref=dp_byline_cont_book_1

Please help me win GUITAR CENTER songwriting Contest.

Hello Friends and Fans I'm not the greatest singer. I'm not the greatest guitar player. Some of my videos are homemade and shot with my Zoom recorder in my office in the middle of the night. I don't have a big flashy band behind me. BUT I WRITE GOOD SONGS and I've entered a huge SONGWRITING competition where they will actually judge the quality of the SONGS. But before my songs can be evaluated by the experts I have to win sort of a regular popularity-type contest... and for that part YOU CAN HELP ME. Please go to the link below and play through (and hopefully enjoy) the 5 short music videos I've entered. By doing so you will be casting 5 votes for me. You can do this more than once a day, but please only play as many times a day as you can actually listen. Please help me get to the evaluation phase of this contest by playing my videos right up until Nov. 9th when the contest ends. Out of nearly 12,000 songwriters who have entered I AM TODAY I AM IN FIRST PLACE! Help keep me stay there. Thank you very much... with your help you might see me on Jimmy Kimmel Live! http://songwriter.amplifiertv.com/channel/Lon+Milo+DuQuette

Two Award-Winning Songs in 2013

Wow! 2013 has been a good year for my music. Thank you everyone for your support and goodwill. My song, BERNICE, won first prize in the OpenMic.US Singer-Songwriter Competition, and my controversial song, IF WE BELIEVED, won the Pagan 'Hornie' award for Best Single of 2013. But these songs are on my newest CD Gentle Heretic which was released on Halloween. Lots of world travel ahead in 2014. I hope to see as many of you as I possibly can (while I'm still young and beautiful! ;-) Thanks you all for a wonderful and memorable year!
