There’s been so much going on lately, I haven’t had a chance to write. But I hope that you’ll mark your calendars for a few particularly exciting shows coming up–
Wednesday, July 14th from 7:30-10:30 I will be playing and singing jazz for the first time at Wilfs Restaurant on the invitation of the amazing drummer and jazz community instigator Ron Steen. I can’t tell you how much I’m looking forward to it! You can check out the Upcoming Shows page here on this site for more details about parking and location.
Thursday, August 5th: First Thursday at Sherman Clay Moe’s Pianos in the Pearl: I’ll be joined by Aaron Pruitt on keys as well as special guests and friends.
As any of my former high school classmates who saw my “notes” in AP European History back in the day, can vouch, I’ve always loved to draw and create visual art. As of last month, a dream that I thought I would have to set aside to fully pursue music came to be—I am now a published illustrator! Check out Cocoa’s Collar, a very special book written to help special needs kids deal with grief—written by Garyanna Stalick. I did these illustrations several years ago and had all but forgotten about it when this past winter, Garyanna called to see if it was okay to pursue publication…why yes, of course it was! I have enjoyed picking up my sketch pad again of late. Having a house filled with toys again certainly doesn’t hurt the inspiration factor!
