driven music conference and new EP!
13 May 2013
I have not hit the road in a while, but I’ll be flying down to Ft Lauderdale this week for the Driven Music Conference. Happily, I was selected for a showcase on Saturday night during the conference. That show will be at Revolution Live in Ft. Lauderdale, and tickets (just $5) are available to the general public for that. And as an extra bonus, my parents live in South FL, so I’ll get to see them while I’m down there, too!
When I’m back in town, I’ll be gearing up to go into the studio to start recording my EP. Mike and I have been hard at work on demos for all the songs. We’re approaching things a little differently than we have before to reflect my new, loop-based songs, and I hope you enjoy the result. More on that soon!

I’m thrilled to be singing and playing with my friend Haviland Stillwell at her show tomorrow night at Rockwell in Los Feliz. We’ll be singing some fun covers (Florence and the Machine!) and we’ve even turned one of my songs into one sassy duet. You’ll have to come to see which one! There should still be some tickets available – we’d love to see you there!
After that, it’s back to prepping for my EP. What with creating vocal loops and playing tiny keyboards and all sorts of other craziness, it’s a bit more complicated (and super fun) process this time around. But things are really coming along, and I’ll be sure to keep you posted on a release date!
i [heart] you…

Hey all! Well. I don’t know where my time to plan out 2013 went. Here we are almost to March and 2013 JUST KEEPS HAPPENING. I spent January doing all kinds of things – including lending my voice (just my voice. You’ll see what I mean later) to a political satire movie musical (YES) and writing a song for an upcoming indie short film. News to come soon, I hope, about all of that.
Also in January, I was thrilled and honored to be one of very few selected by the John Lennon Songwriting Contest/Educational Tour Bus to perform on their stage at this year’s NAMM! (For the uninitiated, that’s not an unfortunate conflict but rather the lovely National Association of Music Merchants. They have a giant conference very year). You can even see a really fun video of my performance on their YouTube page.
And then, just for fun, I wrote a Valentine’s Day song and recorded a demo of it. It was for MY valentine, but you guys are all kinda my valentines too. So: enjoy. With rehearsals beginning for my next EP, there’s LOTS to come this year. 2013 here we gooooo!
