Tipping’ my hat to 2020. It’s a fond fair well. This has been a challenging year for me, as it has for everyone, but it has also been a year of growth, resilience and change. Through the pandemic I have continued to work, to write and play music. The Saboteurs and I have continued to rehearse through this whole mess at Another Round Bar & Grill and that has been a lifeline for me. We are blessed to have people who supported us through it all and gave us a space to create! I picked up gigs wherever and whenever I could. We finished our record with Mitch Clem at Go West which is coming out very soon. I demoed nearly 50 songs with Mitch and have enough tunes and have started planning for the next two albums. I completed a writing internship at RVA Mag which got me through the summer, and for that I am so grateful! Most importantly, I found recovery again and am focusing on my mental health and sobriety. So it has also been a year of accomplishment and positivity. With that said, let’s move onto something better. Let us heal and move forward, onward and upward. I gently and warmly welcome 2021
Happy Holidays folks! I hope everyone had a very merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Holiday, etc. - whatever you celebrated, I hope it was happy, warm and filled with lots of love, laughter, friends and family.
As always, we are working hard over here to create new content for you to enjoy from home - since our opportunities to perform out are very limited these days. Personally, I got in the Christmas spirit this year through learning a whole slew of Christmas songs, which is something I've never really done before. I did a few solo/acoustic livestreams and as you can see above, I released a new, 3 song EP called Coming Home For Christmas. You can find that album on all the streaming platforms and give it a listen today!
In addition, the band and I performed a full band live Holiday Special and made a video of the whole thing. It's a full production with multiple camera angles, audio from the soundboard, etc. - I think you will enjoy it! You can watch that on YouTube or Facebook now.
Thanks for following and sticking with me through this tough year. I am wishing you all the best in 2021 and hope to see you live, in-person at a real show sometime soon! Happy New Year and much love to you all.
