January/February 2006

Well hello there!
I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season and that you're all having an excellent year so far. The weathermen/women keep telling me it's winter and until today, I would never have believed it. 60 degrees in January?! I hate to admit it, since I love winter, but YAY! Scary, a little, but yay!

Anyway...there are incredibly exciting things happening so please, read on!

News About the Record
Fun fun fun! As much work as it is, who knew making a record could be this much fun?! Last week, two of my favorite singer/songwriters joined Gar and me in the studio for some recording: the lovely Edie Carey made a glorious appearance on background vocals on a couple of tunes; and Jake Armerding came and played the heck out of my tunes on fiddle and mandolin. I'm kinda sorta still floating on air. Check out each of their websites and listen to some of their music. You'll be very glad you did.

Recording with Eric Platz last month was some of the most fun I've had in a long time. Everything went swimmingly! Eric was as fantasmagorical as I'd imagined.

The Website!
Stop by for a visit! We hope to have a photo page up soon. In fact, if you come to a show and take some pictures and share them, the photos we put up there could be yours!

As always, please visit my pages on SonicBids and MySpace.
You'll find full song clips on both sites!

Rent Me!
Remember, I'm always interested in being rented. House concerts are so much fun and I'd love to perform in your living room! Interested in having some friends over for a private concert? Email me and I'll tell you how you can do just that! Or email me and find out how you can get your very own song. Do you want a song for your occasion, your boyfriend, your wedding, your birth, etc? Well, let's talk!

I'm so glad to be performing regularly again. Please come say hello and share an evening or four with me.

Thank you, as always, for your constant support.
I hope to see you all soon!
