|Hello friends! |
Man, I’m feeling my 4th of July celebration…I hope you guys had as much fun as I did! I’ve been working like a crazy woman lately, so it was really nice to blow of some steam 🙂
I was super excited to start off my 4th of July with Ange Humphrey on WEHT Local Lifestyles for the 2nd year in a row!!!! This year, I decided to do my quirky song about drinking and camping. It seemed fitting, lol! It’s one of the fan favorites and moonshine may…or may not have been involved in writing this one. Check out my original song, “Camping Girl”!
I’ve got another band gig for you this weekend!!! We’ll be rocking out at Roca Bar North this Saturday from 8-11. It is possible that it may rain, if so, please check my Facebook page or www.AngelRhodesMusic.com for the rain date if it does. I’m hoping it doesn’t rain though…Clint, Danny, Georgia and I have been practicing every week for a couple of months now to put on a killer show. Pray for no rain!!!!!
Also, while we are on the topic of the band. I think I’ve finally figured out a name for us! I’ve talked to the guys and they approve, so I think we can officially say the the new band’s name is Angel Rhodes and The Traveling Gents!!! I’m going to wait until we get a few more shows under our belts and then I’ll generate a new band page just for us. Currently, Danny Metzger II is on drums, Georgia Funkadelic is in bass and I’ve been rotating guitar players between Clint Lock, Lucas Pate and sometimes (if I’m lucky, lol) Ryan Lantz! We like the “Traveling Gents” since they are all gentlemen (for the most part, lol), the members are rotating and we travel like crazy! I hope you guys like it, it’s growing on me the more I think on it!
On to what has been on my mind for over 6 months…the EP is DONE!!!!!!!!!!!! I’ll be officially releasing it on July 19th on all of your major streaming platforms. I’m also looking to make some music videos for the songs, so if you have anyone that would be interested in making a music video, have them contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I have a photo shoot scheduled for this Sunday and I’ve already been scheduling to go on podcasts and different shows to promote the release. I was just a guest on What Do Ya’ Say Now? which is a podcast hosted by Josh Merritt. I had so much fun on this one…we talked about all the random things, plus the EP. Be sure to check it out on Facebook @whatdoyasaynow!
I literally don’t have a single day off in July, so there’s plenty of options to come and see your girl. I hope everyone is staying cool and be sure to download the songs when they come out in a few weeks!!!!
