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. 🙂
