A Time to Give Thanks...

Hi, everyone! With all of the site updates, I haven't been very good at keeping up the journal communications, but what's new, right?  I just had to take a minute to say hello and wish everyone a wonderful Thanksgiving! As the holiday season arrives in a flurry, I've been trying to reflect on all of the blessings given to me. While life can be difficult at times, it's so important to remember all of the wonderful things we take for granted each day. And speaking of thanks...

Summertime and the Living is Busy...

Dare I say it again? Yes, it has been awhile! But, for all of you who have received my news e-mail and checked out our "Latest Updates" on the Home Page, a lot has been going on lately, which is great news! One of the most exciting things happening right now is that my new songs are getting air play on Gary Rhamy's radio show on WSOM AM 600!! For those of you who have asked, four of the six songs being played on the radio are newer recordings than are on the website at this point in time. Call or e-mail Gary and request the songs! (The station number & links are on our Home Page.) It's been so much fun to tune in online and hear them...

Hope Springs Eternal...

The year is flying by already with the quiet hope of summer's coming whistling in the wind... the quiet hope of things to come... With the season's change, the opportunity comes along for us to re-think, re-focus, and try new things so I thought I'd catch you up with the new things going on here.............We will be playing at FashionWeek Cleveland 2009's Black Tie Gala. I'm really excited about being part of this event - it's such a great opportunity and should be a fun evening. It seems like it's been a little while since I was part of the fashion scene in Cleveland - maybe I'll run into some people I used to do fashion shows/shoots with...Who knows?....

Post-Valentine's Day Post...

Hi there! I just wanted to write a quick note and say how much I enjoyed being out at Laurello Vineyards on Valentine's Day! I had a great time performing love songs for this sold-out special event at the winery and felt very at home there. The food was fabulous and the staff was extremely nice, making us feel very welcome and excited to be performing for the first time in Ohio's wine country...

In the Bleak Midwinter...

 

Okay, so I guess it isn't that 'bleak,' but it is January in Northeastern Ohio, which doesn't bring much sunshine but certainly lots of snow and cold temperatures. So, anyway, for those of you who have wondered what I've been doing over the last six weeks or so, here's the wrap up!  Even though I haven't been out performing much during this time, I've definitely been hard at work. We decided to take advantage of this time to record some new demos, because, just like everyone else, we had so much free time over the Holidays...Okay, so not really! We've been cramming like college freshmen...

Celebrating the Season...

 

Here I sit again, realizing how long it's been since I've written any new tidbits for this 'notes' section. I figure it's a good time to catch up on these things as I'm snowed-in on a Sunday morning, having awakened with all intentions of going to church and then getting a glimpse of the nearly white-out conditions. Oh well...  To re-cap on the last two months, I've been busy as usual, and we've had the added interest of having the coldest and most snowy November we've had in quite some time. (We're certainly used to feet of snow at a time, but... 

Fall is Falling Upon Us...

 

Hi, everyone! As I look at this page, I guess I haven't posted any news in a while. I must correct that! There's always something new, right? The fall is flying by already, and I'm looking forward to our upcoming Little Italy dates at Michaelangelo's and to Holiday Music at Eton over Thanksgiving weekend!  And, in the recent past, there was the 2008 'Reason for Hope' Ball - such an exciting event at the Intercontinental Hotel in Cleveland. We had a great time playing...

Up, Up and Away...

 

I'm sitting here listening to the sounds of a hot air balloon pass over my house. Its slow descent makes subtle but strange sound effects for the sunset on a nearly perfect summer's day. So many things to do and to see in a lifetime! (I'm going to hitch a ride in one of those balloons, one of these days...) What a blessing to witness such beauty - man-made beauty floating through an incredible, God-created sky.  Speaking of blessings...

Singing in the Rain...

 

It's Monday morning after quite the busy weekend! We performed at The 100th Bomb Group Restaurant on Friday to a full house (or maybe I should say 'a full deck?' :-) ). It was a great evening, watching the planes land and singing underneath the clear sky. We could even see the fireworks in the distance from downtown.  Then, we turned around and went east to Leo's on Saturday. It was our first rainy patio gig, (we've been so blessed with lovely weather) and, let me tell you, it rained...and stopped...and rained harder and harder. We wound up in a puddle a couple of times, and, with each rain, we inched our equipment farther underneath the awning...

Summer is Finally Here!

 

Hi again! I'm sitting on my porch enjoying this beautiful day and thinking of the wonderful weekend we had. Thanks to everyone who came out to see us!  Trifles was a lot of fun, as usual, on Friday night, despite the stormy weather. We're looking forward to going back there in a couple of weeks. And Leo's patio was just lovely on Saturday night, especially as...
