Happy January 2020!! โ€- New Music Video ๐Ÿงœ๐Ÿงœ

Good evening, Folks!! 2020 is shaping up to be pretty spectacular so far!! I am shooting a SECOND music video from my debut album “Siren’s Song” tomorrow, and I am so excited and proud of the work done on the video thus far!!ย 
โ€๐Ÿงœย “Siren’s Song”ย ๐Ÿงœย came out 8 months ago today, and if you haven’t heard it or purchased it yet, please do so!!ย 
The video I’m filming tomorrow is for my song “When Will We Learn” which is a song I wrote with a heavy heart about coping with the aftermath of gun violence. It’s a beautiful song, and the video will reflect how this affects us all.
Hope everyone is having a wonderful new year and being productive, finding success, and happiness; and learning, loving, and living as much as possible. Happy January!!

Happy Holidays!! ๐ŸŽŠ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ๐ŸŽˆ

Well, Folks, it’s been a long road & a busy and eventful year for me. 2019 was great for many reasons!! I am thrilled to say that my debut album ๐Ÿงœโ€ “Siren’s Song” ๐Ÿงœโ€ is doing very well! My album is for sale in stores in 6 record stores in California (Boo Boo Records and Cheap Thrills in San Luis Obispo, Amoeba Music in San Francisco and Berkeley, the Musical Offerings Cafe in Berkeley, the Music Store in West Portal, SF) and 2 record stores in Seattle (Easy Street Records and Silver Platters)!! I have been slowly but surely touring and going around playing shows and promoting myself as often as possible. As an independent artist, it’s quite difficult to do everything on your own, including promotions, bookings, cold callings, as well as actual performing, and writing new material. Despite the difficulties, I have a lot planned for the next decade. I am working on a top secret album which I am recording in February (hint: ๐ŸŽท๐ŸŽท๐ŸŽน๐ŸŽน๐ŸŽง๐ŸŽง๐ŸŽผ๐ŸŽผ๐ŸŽค๐ŸŽค), and I already have a new banjo album lined up for release in 2020, which I have been steadily working on for the past few months. Everything in this game and this industry is all a matter of pacing, timing, perspective, & determination. I must say, I appreciate EVERYONE who has supported me, come out to my shows, booked me for gigs, and who has steadily been there for me as an artist, and as a person. The love I feel from my tribe and my community is amazing and unwavering, and I could not, and would not be where I am today without every single one of you. From the bottom of me heart, THANK YOU!! Wishing you all a wonderful holiday season and a happy new year! Let’s ring in the 2020’s in style!! ๐ŸŽŠ๐ŸŽŠ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰

Lucky Seven!! Happy December!! ๐ŸŽ๐ŸŽ๐Ÿ•ฏ๏ธ๐Ÿ•ฏ๏ธ

Good afternoon, Folks! Today is the 7-month anniversary of my debut album “Siren’s Song” being released into the world! It’s been a wild year for sure!! I’m already in the process of recording another album, and I have so much on my plate. I’ve been working to book shows and get a tour going as well which has proved trickier than I anticipated, but I suppose the struggle is part of the game, right?

I have also been working on a new music video for my song “When Will We Learn” which is a song I wrote after the Las Vegas shootings, and how we need to do better as a country regarding gun control. If you haven’t heard my album, or this song, check it out. It was one of the hardest songs for me to write, but I think it will resonate with a lot of folks.

I am lucky that I have a very loving community and lots of friends & family supporting me, and I am eternally grateful that people regularly come to my shows/Farmer’s Markets/gigs and stop by & say hello! It means the world to a performer to have loved ones in the audience!! Thank you to all of you! Lots of love & peace to you this holiday season. We could all use more love in the world.
