Oops! I completely lost track of time and now it’s April and I haven’t updated this blog since December. Well, happy 2016!
I had a lovely tour through Florida in January, spent a few days in Illinois in February and I’m playing shows this spring and summer in Virginia, Philadelphia, Maine, Massachusetts, Texas, Maryland, New Jersey, New York and who knows where else! Check the ‘shows’ tab for the full list of dates.
Wow! December 4th already. I’m 7 days away from turning 28 and have had an absolute CRAZY year. I meant to write this update right when I got home from Europe but jet lag and a bad cold had me out for a week or so and then thanksgiving happened so I’m just now getting to this blog entry.
You guys, EUROPE WAS AWESOME! I can’t wait to go back. I felt like a total rockstar at all my shows, people in Europe LOVE Nashville singer/songwriter tunes and I just felt the love every single show. Actually, we did have a couple duds of shows but overall it was really special.
My year has really slowed down now, taking some time to be at home and work on planning my wedding. But I do have a few things in the works for 2016. I’ll start the year off down in Florida for the 30A songwriters festival and then do some more shows in the Tampa/St. Petersburg area.
I’m not sure what’s next for Annalise Emerick but I promise you guys that I will do my very best to keep working and writing and touring. I just need some time to get my head back on straight after 2 solid years of touring. Really, I just want to catch up on my netflix and hulu but maybe I’ll be creative somewhere in there too.
Love to you all,
I can’t believe I’m flying to Paris in 5 days! I’m ready for all the wine, cheese and baguettes. Hope to see some of you out at the shows and if you know anyone in France, Germany, Denmark or the Netherlands, send them out to a show.
Come see me in Texas next week! I’ll be with my buddy, Jesse Terry and we want to see YOU at our shows.
My apologies for the gap between posts. Touring life has been INSANE and I’ve had little time for anything but driving and sleeping.
I flew down to Texas at the beginning of May for the Songwriter Serenade contest where I placed 4th.
Then I flew down in Key West for the BMI singer/songwriter festival. It was a BLAST and I can’t wait until next year.
I went down south and toured Texas, New Mexico and Arizona for the month of May. I’m happy to report that I was one of the 4 winners of the Wildflower Festival songwriter contest! The festival was a great experience and I hope to play it again next year.
I did a run of shows with Brian Dunne in June and we had loads of fun and played some really great house concerts and venues.
After a quick vacation and very special weekend in New England I started out toward St. Louis to begin my July/August monster tour. I’ve been to Missouri, Kansas, Colorado, Utah, Oregon, California, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming and I’m still not done. Who booked this tour anyways? (I do all my own booking)
Coming up I’ll be in Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, South Dakota, Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee, Oklahoma, Texas and then on to EUROPE! France, Netherlands, Germany, and Denmark. Any Europe travel tips are greatly appreciated.
