Happy August! I've got some exciting stuff coming up this week and I'd love to share my news with you all!
First, I'm looking forward to appearing at a Songwriters in the Round evening on Friday, August 3 at The Hearing Room in Lowell along with Dawn Kenney and Ralph DeFlorio. Thanks to Aaron Tornberg and Mushroom Musicians for setting that up!
On Saturday, August 4th I am excited about performing along side Catie Flynn, Chev Hardy, Kim Moberg, and Dylan Routhier at the Cape Variety Ensemble Concert. This event takes place at the West Dennis Community Church from 7:00 - 9:00 and is a benefit for the DY Music Program. It is the brain child of Dylan Routhier, who graduated from DY in June and is heading off to Berkeley in the fall. It is his way of giving back to DY before moving on. He has assembled an amazing band of talented musicians who will accompany each songwriter on our original compositions. Not only did Dylan compose some original songs for this event, he arranged each of our songs for concert band, and even composed a first movement to one of my songs. This is a concert not to be missed and I hope you can be there!
And finally, to wrap up this stellar weekend, on Sunday, August 5th, at some point between the hours of 5:00 and 8:00 pm EST, my song Speaking Out will be featured on John Platt's Sunday Supper radio show, guest hosted by Christine Lavin on WFUV radio out of New York. Christine reached out to me at the end of June to let me know that someone had forwarded her a scratch recording of my song Speaking Out. (I nearly fainted when I read the email and could not stop saying "oh my God, oh my God, oh my God, oh my God!" as I looked at my computer screen!) She then told me of her interest in airing the song on the radio show and inquired as to whether it would be possible to record a radio ready mix of the song in time for the show's taping at the end of July. Despite crazy busy summer schedules and huge thanks to producer Jon Evans at the Studio at Brick Hill, and my angel choir of harmony singers, (Catie Flynn, Doreen LaFranchise, Kim Moberg, and Tanya Roza) the song is ready and I sent it to her today. Please tune in if you have a chance this coming Sunday evening!
But it doesn't stop there! The CD is coming along nicely and should be all finished by late summer, early fall. Stay tuned for that. The same day we went in and finished recording Speaking Out, Randy Patterson and Billy Kwaak came in to add some mandolin, drums, and male voices to the mix. Not to mention that the rest of August and the beginning of September are chock full of gigs and I hope to see you out and about at a show one of these days! Lots of outdoor gigs so you can enjoy the beautiful weather and be serenaded by yours truly while you're at it!
