I know it's been a while since I have written to you, but I promise to get better, because this year couldn't have begun any better.
As dumb as people think New Years resolutions are, they aren't. I don't know what I would do if I didn't have a goal to work towards. And that is to make something of myself, and my music.
The EP release party at Smith's was awesome. So much support, it was overwhelming. Truly can't believe the response I have gotten from the 5 tracks, and it's just fueled me to keep going and to keep on writing more music that people can relate to, and jam out in their car to.
Booking gig's isn't easy! Thankfully, Smith's has been awesome about having me headline a show in May, and I met a guy at Eddie's Attic who wants to take a chance on me and is letting me open for a well-known southern rock band in April. It's pretty cool to think that I will be singing in the exact spot that John Mayer got his start in.
Also...my band is AWESOME. Andy has always been there for me, to write with me, to encourage me, and to just be a good friend. Chris is hilarious, and a great drummer, and has really dedicated himself to this. Found a new bassist, Derek, who is a really cool dude, and a sweet bass player. Really excited to have him on board! Practice has been a lot of fun, and we are getting ready to play with a full band coming up!
Did I mention "More Than Ordinary" was played on the radio!? At 8pm, on a Sunday night!?! That was surreal. Thanks to Radio 105.7 for supporting local artists, and for WANTING to play my song. That was pretty cool.
Hoping to get in the studio soon, I have been working on a couple new songs. They both have a different feel, but come from situations I've dealt with over the past few years. Dealing with people who have multiple personalities, and questioning if I am where I need to be right now (which I have decided that I am...). Can't wait for you all to hear them at my live shows.
In other news in my life, met an unexpected person that has already made me the happiest I think I've ever been (which is scary to say, but I am confident in saying this) and every day is a new adventure. Not getting too detailed in my personal life, that's what my songs are for ;)
I want to end every post thanking you for reading, for listening, for sharing, for believing, for everything. It means more than you know.
Live with passion,
