Woo Hoo I was on TV!
Greetings from Austin, Texas!
It’s been 1 week since I left my jobs in Nashville, packed up the Honda Fit and headed out to tour full time. I’m just a few shows in but I can already tell that this “living my dream” thing is going to be awesome.
I really want to thank the Austin folk for making my first 2 shows in Texas really special.
Please head over to the shows tab to see if I’m coming to a city near you!
It was about 9 years ago when I came to Nashville for the first time. My mom and I flew up from Austin to visit Belmont University and while we were in town we caught a show at The Bluebird Cafe, it was an evening I have never forgotten. The show was an “in the round” format (the first time I’d seen anything like that ) and included the hit writer Tony Arata (no big deal but he wrote “The Dance” which was made famous by Garth Brooks). The bluebird has changed a lot over the past 8 years but the legacy it holds in Nashville is quite untouchable.
On Friday, I will make my Bluebird Cafe debut. To many in Nashville, this moment comes quite quickly but I’ve waited a long time for this and I’m proud to finally join the bluebird family of artists in Nashville. It’s a big deal to me and I know I will always cherish this moment. Now, I’ll finally get to say “I’ve played the Bluebird,” something I’ve been hoping to say for years.
But enough of this mushy stuff. See on you Friday, 6:30pm at The Bluebird Cafe.
My dear friend, Cullen, works for the Maine Cancer Foundation and asked me if they could use “Time of Day” in their upcoming “Maine Cancer Stories” video. Of course I agreed.
So here’s a beautiful, intimate and candid look into the story of Sharon Leddy. I’m so proud to be part of this project, it is a true honor.
We tracked 10 songs in 3 days.
I feel like I just got home from 6 weeks at summer camp. We start vocals at the end of next week. Hopefully you’ll have this album by the time April rolls around!
The wonderful people at Squareware Studios sent me this wedding video that uses “This Love Won’t Break Your Heart.” I only cried three times the first time I watched it.
Watch it and you’ll instantly feel happy. Heck, I don’t even need a music video anymore, this one does the trick perfectly.
Happy New Year to all!
Find your people and celebrate the new year with the ones you love the most.
See you in 2014. New Album. New Tour. New Songs!
It’s been a while since I’ve written a blog but it’s only because I’ve been focused on writing for the new album and generally taking a bit of time off from the business side of all this music stuff.
But now it’s back to work and I’m happy to do it! I’ve already got a bunch of shows booked for next year but I’m still working on my regional tours. As soon as the new project is done I’ll be hitting the road, late March I think.
I had a wonderful visit with my family during thanksgiving. We spent it in Nashville and had a friends/family/misfits-giving. Lots of laughter, food and thankfulness.
The weather has officially dropped to winter level in Nashville as of last week. But it feels nice, reminds me of those freezing days in Boston last year. Only it’s not even close to as cold, wet or miserable.
The new project will be recorded at the beginning of January! We’ll be doing 3 days of tracking and then we’ll spend the rest of the month doing vocals, overdubs, strings, bgvs etc. I CAN’T WAIT to hunker down in the studio and get to WORK. I wrote 2 new songs in the past 3 days that I hope will make it on the album and I’m almost sure we’re going to do a full length record as opposed to another EP or 2 little EPs. I just can’t wait to get these songs out and into your music libraries. Woooo!
Have a wonderful holiday season.
Hey Team! I just entered a contest that’s put on by Guitar Center and Don Was (a massive, legendary, game changing producer) and need your help!
Points are calculated by how many SHARES we get. So if you click through to the website below, share the link on all your social media and then I’ll get a few more points. I’m still feeling it all out but this would be such a huge opportunity for me and I cannot do it without you. I usually try to stay away from contests but since this one is just based on online presence and social media shares, it’s a bit different than just trying to get every single person to vote every single day.
Let me know if you have any questions!
