Today August and I took a walk in our neighborhood. A few days ago it snowed. It’s really quite nice with the snow and leaves intermixed. It’s usually not so colorful by the time it snows. The pinks, yellows, oranges and greens against the blue sky is wonderful. Enjoying November. Hope you are too!
Tonight I’ll be traveling south to Akron, playing the art museum. It’s free and a super pleasing space.I’ll be solo 730-9pm.
Happy beautiful Fall day. I’m hoping to utilize this website here since it was so beautifully put together by these cool dudes.
Four months plus into motherhood. Every cliche is true. My darling August is my favorite human being. I would do absolutely anything for him. I can’t believe how fast time is going and I can’t remember my life without him. He has filled me with the most incredible joy. And he loves music!

I’ve played a handful of shows the last two months..
My days are becoming more structured and I’m trying to create more. There’s no denying though that the majority of my day is dedicated to my baby. With that being said I still have plans (August, the month was a little too soon to start) to record but it has downsized/fun-sized into an EP (like I did in 2008). I feel like I can put my best into this.
I’ll be recording with my good friend and pianist, Spencer Martin. He has a home studio in my hometown of Canton and has produced some wonderful artists recently. Check out his work here. We recorded a Christmas classic last year. I’ll be incorporating some new sounds and new musicians. I’m really excited to get this going!
I’d still like to still do another campaign to get you pumped for this recording.
So here’s to some solid practice time in the next few weeks and recording in the coming month or so.
I’m going to experiment with sharing more. What I do to make a song. What I do to stay interested. Maybe what we’re doing around here to stay interesting.
Gradual changes to freshen things up here.
*check out my shows coming up..more will be added soon.
My best to you,
I thought it was due time to inform you of my plans for my future musical endeavors.
As you may know I’ll be welcoming my baby boy very soon! He’ll be here by the beginning of June. I’ll be taking the Summer off from shows and will devote my time to him alongside my husband.
At the end of Summer will also be the start of recording my second full length album. I’ll be playing shows throughout the Fall and Winter around the midwest.Baby and husband in tow on several weekend nights.
I’m also planning another campaign for the fall to help raise money like I did successfully with Sweetheart back in 2011. You’ll be able to pre-order the album, get other goodies from me and be a pertinent part of my album. Hope you’re excited.
I’m looking at a Winter release date. More details as the time gets closer.
Happy Friday and weekend to you all!
Happy Monday (as happy as it can be),
Baby boy has been moving, kicking, fists up in the air, (what feels like) somersaults, hiccup-ing a good deal these days. He’s so real. I can’t wait to meet him and love him. He already makes me proud moving around in my belly and (still be my friend) I’m crying typing this. I can’t imagine how much my love will flourish once he’s here.
Five weeks and four days till my due date.
I’ve been singing and playing guitar to him daily. I feel like I need to keep him entertained. He puts his fist up, I assume to give me a high five/good job, Mom.
Hope you’re doing well and enjoying this lovely Spring.
It feels so appropriate writing a blog post on this bleak, drizzly Tuesday afternoon.
It also feels right to play music today, write and have a cup of tea.
Like everyday I wonder what to do next, what this year will hold.
I’m taking it slowly, not planning too far ahead due to the little babe coming this Summer.
Currently my next show is March 27th, a daytime event at MOCA (Museum of Contemporary Art, here in Cleveland). I assure you, me becoming a Mother doesn’t mean I’ll be playing well before 7pm from now on. I’m still hip to the late shows. This should be a good time though and it’s free.
I’ll be playing as much as I possibly can till June, and as long as I can safely place my guitar on my belly.
Look for more shows to be added throughout the Spring.
Hope you’re doing well.
PS: I had such a wonderful time at Brite Winter festival a few weekends ago. If you’re a new friend/fan because of my set, thank you nice to meet you. Hope to see you again sometime soon!No Comments
