Good Things Afoot

11, Mar 2015

Wheeeeeeeeeeew! Long time no see, beloved blog. It’s almost time for SXSW so the blogging is about to get real. Some of my favorite posts are the recaps of all the random stuff I get to see and do at this giant conference. So glad to be here for these events…it’s a unique opportunity when […]

Let me explain. I’m deep in a year-long program with Rubicon Artist Development called Rubicon Gold. It’s for folks like me who want to keep focused on our musical goals and “next level” it. It’s self-paced and guided by my producer and great friend Daniel Barrett. There’s reading, check-ins, goal setting, vision and values assessment, […]

Pomplamoose on tour. Taylor Swift and Spotify. Grammy nominations. If you’re a music industry news junkie, you’ve read about all of this in the past couple of weeks. If you’re not, just know that a lot of people have spent a lot of internet time debating music and money and art and commerce…like always. I […]

Mastered!

7, Apr 2014

Daniel Barrett and Mark Hallman EP 3 is almost done and in my hands. I spent a super enjoyable day at Congress House Studio in Austin with Mark Hallman and Dan last week. Mark is a super producer himself, and known as one of the best mastering studios around amen. It was neat to see […]

Whelp, this will be fun! My friend Bill Small asked if I would go in on this wonderful project with him and I yelled “YAAAASSSSSSS!!!” and then more politely responded “Why yes, I’d love to, thank you for asking.” What are we doing? Well, you can watch Bill’s very well narrated info video here, but […]

Putting Up Walls

20, Jan 2014

Here’s where I stand on the home decorating front…I like things to look good. I even have a fairly good aesthetic eye. I like clean lines, and I like having things around me that remind me of good times and people. I also like looking at things that inspire me. However, while I have part […]

New MCC

20, Jan 2014

As mentioned in Ask Jana below, Mary Chapin Carpenter has a new album out. I have not missed getting a physical copy of any of her albums, and I don’t plan to stop until they cease making CDs altogether. I stopped by Waterloo Records this week to pick one up. I’ll admit, I had to […]

Art Happens

14, Jan 2014

EP 3 Update time! The holidays made us all take a bit of a break on the record making front, which was fine. Things are picking up again and I had a meeting with Emily Shirley this week about artwork. This is one of my favorite parts of the process because really, I don’t have […]

O’Keeffe in Santa Fe

27, Dec 2013

It’s silly that I do not make it to Santa Fe and the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum every time I am in New Mexico, because it’s a beautiful town and O’Keeffe is one of my favorite artists. She painted for over 60 years, lived to be 99, and her body of work is stunning. She was […]

So…co-writing and stuff.  I haven’t done a ton of it.  I am thrilled to be able to say I co-wrote “Lovely When You Cry” with Susan and that it’s on her Tightrope album (lyric video here!).  And I’ve sat down a few times with folks to write but I can’t say a lot of things […]
