I am a sucker for a motivational anything. I have books, I have podcasts, I have graphics saved on my phone, I have tweets favorited, I have t-shirts with positive messages written on them. There are a million and one people who will preach at you from their Youtube channels and their blogs and their […]

20 Years is a Thing

23, Aug 2018

Warning: navel-gazing ahead. It’s why I have a blog! I’m in the weirdest summer mood. I have not had an unpleasant summer…it’s been a good one, actually. I took a notion to travel and see friends and music in June, when Texas had just started to assert its place in one of Dante’s rings, as […]

I have this conversation at least 3 times a week. I lament with fellow musicians about the discouraging trend of spending hundreds or thousands of dollars recording a track or an album only to see…well, not very much back. I listen as frustrated fans try to figure out how to support artists the best way […]

As a new year usually makes me do, I have been pondering my 2017 and thinking about what I want for 2018. I am a sucker for reading a lot of self-improvement tomes and articles, and I very much enjoyed this one, which wraps up 2017 and sets a good scene for planning the next […]

Hey hey, it’s my birthday! Seemed like a good excuse to launch a big ol’ piece of art…so here it is…the new single called Money & Heart. Money & Heart by Jana Pochop I played a gig out at Tips Concert Series earlier this year, with Susan Gibson and Kelley Mickwee. Mark Addison, producer extraordinaire, […]

Words can’t really describe so I made a vlog. What a time in Nashville! Thanks to Heidi and MCC and gin.

Here’s how this went down. Taylor Swift was playing a show in Houston the night before the Super Bowl. You could not buy tickets. You had to win tickets, either through a sweepstakes (er, Swiftstakes) or by having the TS Team find you on social media because you’re a raging Swift fan and give you […]

You guys. Saturday was one of the coolest moments I’ve had as a music fan…ever. As I constantly say, I am working on a vlog (or 2!) about all this, but here are some photos from Taylor Swift’s ONLY show of 2017 and also…a special fan party she hosted for some fortunate folks, including Melinda […]

2016 Music Recap: Live

19, Dec 2016

Here’s the deal with me, and I know I’ve been over this several times and in several forms. In my formative teenage years I became a folkie. I appreciate a great songwriter. I’ve seen and see quite a few of them, and I count many of them as my friends.  There’s a vibrant and wonderful […]

MCC is Awesome

12, Nov 2016

Wow.  There’s an incredible amount of things going on in the world at the moment.  Hard to wrap one’s mind around the changes politically and socially this week, but I’m sure my head will start wrapping soon.  Or try to…holy crap.  In the meantime, photos. Before Election 2016 went down on Tuesday, I saw 3 […]
