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
Happy day of love in every facet! Hope you get to be with someone special, whether that be a significant other or a great friend. May you know you’re appreciated.
I wanted to share one of my favorite love songs,dedicated to the one I love.
Hope you’re well and enjoying the beginning of February. I’ve been thinking about making a new album and what exactly I want it to be. I’m looking to start recording next month.
Lately I’ve been thinking about singing. Revisiting what it does for me. How I used to love singing for anyone. How I have gotten more shy as I’ve aged. I still love singing but I’m afraid I’ve allowed myself to hide behind a guitar.
I never sing in the shower. I rarely just sing when I’m alone. I’ve grown quiet and know I need to sing when I write a song or practice but what about to just enjoy myself?
On this new album, I hope to sing a good deal. I want to remember my love for singing in a familiar but revitalizing way.
If you haven’t heard the news, I’m going to be a Mama come June. I’m pregnant with a baby boy.
This new chapter brings me so much joy. I’ve always, always wanted to be a Mother. I can’t believe it’s really happening.
This has perhaps caused my questions about my life, what I’m doing. I want to be a good example. I want my boy to know his Mama loves music and has made her life around it. I want him to appreciate music, maybe singing too. I of course want to sing to him (and have started).
Cheers to sing more.
