Nashville Voyager Magazine’s Local Stories Series!
A couple weeks ago I had the privilege of heading back up north to my old stomping grounds of Duluth, Minnesota for their inaugural North of Nashville showcase event. Such a tremendous opportunity and everyone was so incredibly welcoming- from the folks putting on the event to the attendees. It felt a lot like going home.
Anyways I just posted the full live video of my performance to the link below! Check it out and let me know what ya think! Cheers!
As spring draws to a close here in Tennessee music, events, and venues around the country are starting to see an increase in performances. First off- yay!! It’s really exciting to witness the art and life of this town seemingly reborn.
Yes. I’m heading back into the studio to work on three new songs to release later in 2021. With the delays and myriad issues 2020 posed to both music and the rest of the world I’m really looking forward to leaning into this season of creativity, production, and potential in the coming months and years.
Yes, I’m aware that I don’t post as often to this blog as I should… but as the great Sherlock would say “the game is afoot!” And yes things are happening that should increase my ability to share content here in the very near future! So if you haven’t yet subscribed… do it! (Especially if you believe in my music and career for the long term. Think investment here as I will not soon forget those who believed when it wasn’t popular. Cause yeah. Someday soon… it’ll be the New Thing 😉
As always…. thanks for joining me on this journey and following along with my story. I love you all!
(P.S Enjoy the full video of an unreleased song “Tennessee” above!) 🙂
Well spring is in full swing here in Nashville. Finally seeing thunderstorms and rain showers rather than storm warnings… which is a good thing lol. But I could do without the tornado warnings.
In a couple weeks I’ll be expanding outwards from Nashville and attempting to find some gigs in St Louis, Missouri. Rather exciting news! We’ll see how it all plays out but everything is an adventure regardless so it will be a blast I’m sure.
In more immediate news, I’ll be headed back into the studio to work out a couple more tracks. This time they’re definitely less extensive in the production side of things (I mean what isn’t… have you heard Gypsy Heart??) Anyways, it’ll be mostly piano and vocals… but we might decide to throw some strings and guitar cause hey- Why not? I’m crazy.
This week looking to set up a live video shoot to record a couple live band songs— it’s kind of last minute but if it works out I’ll be sharing it here! So make sure to subscribe to this really sporadically posted, hopefully entertaining, but always erratic, blog of my musical journey!
Wow. Where to start for this one. 2020 has been INSANe so far this year… global pandemic, murder hornets (?), riots, cultural awareness, black lives matter. There’s been a whole heck of a lot to process, understand, learn, and opportunities to grow.
This post is special for me as it is my genuine pleasure to announce my first wide release, cross platform single!!! Gypsy Heart is available wherever you stream music on July 3rd, 2020– There has been an incredible amount of work put into this track and I am so immensely excited to get it out.
This track is really personal to me and is one that I needed to release to both start the creative journey of my upcoming EP (yes it’s in the works), as well as get this tracks message off my chest. It’s a story of a runaway, of a Gypsy Heart, or myself. I hope you can both relate to the message as well as appreciate the musicality that (admittedly) took a ton of planning and work. Also, as in my case, hit the freeway, roll the windows down, and let it rip!!! By far that’s my favorite way to listen cause it’s a JAAAMMMM!
Whew! It has been a hot minute since I last updated this blog. Been a crazy past few months to say the least… Got the Coronavirus Pandemic, almost all shows cancelled, and live music becoming almost officially extinct. Starting on the upswing though so things are starting to look promising!
A couple days ago me and the producer I’m working with finished the mix on what will be my first multi-platform single: Gypsy Heart. I’m super ridiculously excited about this one and really looking forward to getting it out there and seeing how you all respond. I can guarantee it’s unlike anything else currently being released, one hundred percent original, and pretty personal to myself as well. It’s a song that I needed to release before moving on with some more… let’s say commercially viable options. But set down the date! 7.3.2020 – July 3rd, 2020 Gypsy Heart will become available on all platforms. The plan is to have a lyric video uploaded to YouTube to accompany it as well at the outset and then hopefully shoot a full music video to be released perhaps 6-8 weeks after. We’ll see how all that goes.
In other news here in Nashville life has slowed down tremendously due to the COVID Crisis. Still managing to write a lot and even getting a few virtual co-writes in, but focusing primarily on my own music to be released. We’ve already started pre-production on what should be my 2nd wide single release… And that one’s gonna be a hit. Lol, well I hope it is… 🙂
Anyways, that’s it for now… Cheers to you all thanks for reading and hope you’re doing well!
