Red River Joy

1, Feb 2014

We just got home from the 3rd Annual Texas Red’s Red River Songwriters’ Festival (yes, that is a long title) in Red River, NM. We were lucky to be included on the first go around in 2011, and now in year three it’s a growing festival and one of the best times of the year! […]

I feel the need to blog more before it is 2014. Uh… I had the joy of spending the week before Christmas with the Traveling Red River Songwriters’ Tour…with the amazing Drew Kennedy, Walt Wilkins, Kelley Mickwee, Brandy Zdan, Josh Grider, and SusanG. We all gather for the Red River Songwriters’ Festival in January in […]

Best Week Ever

11, Nov 2013

Whew. I have to admit, I’m gonna sleep a lot tonight. It’s been a whirlwind of adventure these past two weeks, with recording the new album, the Kickstarter, playing Rice Festival, and a bonus encounter with a hero of mine all wrapped into these past few days. I need a nap, but a satisfied, happy […]

The Band Sandwich

19, Aug 2013

A dispatch from Team Santana I feel like I’ve had enough distance from this to post about it.  This is about a venue that I’m not going to name because I’m not out to stir up bad publicity, just tell a story (but if you see me in person and ask, I might tell you […]

I just got back from a 10 day jaunt through the Southeast with Susan Gibson, troubadour and driver extraordinaire. We had some house concerts, some venue gigs, and a couple of days off in gorgeous Augusta, where our generous hosts FINALLY met my demands and separated the M&M’s for me, because the yellow ones taste […]

Uncle Calvin’s

17, May 2013

I had the absolute honor of opening for Elizabeth Wills at Uncle Calvin’s in Dallas, Texas last weekend. It’s one of the best listening rooms in the state. Look at the list of folks coming up! I am kind of fangirling out that my name is on the same list as Rose Cousins. (All you […]

Be A Unicorn

10, May 2013

Life’s been busy being lived! I had a fun time in Arkansas and Oklahoma with Susan last week…we had one day where we woke up in Fort Smith, AR…drove to Okmulgee, OK for a private shindig, kept driving for a show that night outside Oklahoma City…she played the show, and we got in the van […]

California!

23, Feb 2013

I LOVE THIS STATE. I’ve had some super fun trips to the Bay Area but never spent any time in SoCal, so when a good friend said Susan and Elizabeth should play in Huntington Beach, that sounded like a great idea. I would move here, but I’d need a job and all I’d really want […]

Greetings from my couch (yep, it’s still here and still comfortable). We had a whirlwind trip to Red River, NM for the 2nd Annual Texas Red River Songwriters’ Festival. This was momentous because “2nd annual” means the first one worked well enough to do it again. Last year we had a small but mighty crowd […]

Meandering January

15, Jan 2013

It’s been a great start to the new year…I’m settling into San Marcos life. I like this town because I can walk to the bank, grocery store, and two coffee shops really easily. This is exciting. Aside from some gig stuff I haven’t done a ton of wandering because I am still settling into my […]
