Good morning everyone!!!
Well…to say I’ve been busy is an understatement at this point. I’m so blessed to be getting gigs left and right, podcasts, interviews and still trying to get ready for my wedding! It’s a crazy time but it’s been super rewarding. And y’all know how I like to stay busy!!!!!
As many of you might already know, my EP is now live and available for download!!! Whether you like to use ITunes, Apple Music, Google Play, Spotify, Amazon, Tidal, Facebook, YouTube or any other streaming services, I’ve got you covered!!! So far, the response for the EP has been extremely positive. In fact, a simple video that I threw together for “Self Sabotage” hit 1.3K streams within 7 days of it’s release on Facebook! I intend to make an official video for this one, so if you know anyone that would like to partake in this project, have them contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I was very honored for Tommy Ellis at News 4U to cover my EP in this month’s issue. I legit got a little misty eyed reading it. It’s crazy how much work goes into releasing original songs, and I couldn’t have done it without Steve Tyner at Black Cat Recording and the amazing musicians that performed on the record. I put my heart and soul into these songs and it’s surreal to feel like people get it!!! Thanks so much Tommy and please take a moment to check out the article at https://issuu.com/atomapublishing/docs/news4u_1908_sml/54 or just pick up your copy of News 4U at your favorite local business!
I also got to talk music and shared some gig stories with Jason Burton with Evansville Podcast. We had such a good time and it was cool to talk shop with him. Be sure to check out mine and all the many other awesome podcasts he has on his station at https://www.facebook.com/evansvillepodcast/posts/1107533349436879!
This month, I’ve only got one band gig for you and it’s going to be friggin’ epic!!! I’ve got the Traveling Gents with me on August 17th at Bokeh Lounge. This will be our debut performance there as a group and we are excited to rock out! We’ve added 3 new killer songs and reworked a few of the older ones. Be sure to come out and listen to this bad a#% show!!!
August is probably going to be my busiest month to date, so try to come out and see me at a gig if you can. Seeing a familiar face in the crowd always makes my job a little more fun! See you guys soon!
