It’s been a while. Quite a while. Too long….
I spent a few days in the hospital this past week due to complications from my liver disease. It’s been a great reminder of how this musical journey began. A great reminder of my purpose. Who I was made to be. It has once again given me a fresh look at life. A new fire in my soul. The drive and the motivation to make some changes and take some steps I have felt unable to make for some time.
Here is a quick recap of my journey so far…
2010…November…Began writing songs after diagnosis of Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis (autoimmune liver disease)
2013…August…Run Free (my debut album) was recorded and released thanks to many of you, and other tremendously generous donors!!
2015 & 2016…Numerous major life changes. Breaking. Healing. Moving forward.
Since the release of Run Free, I have performed hundreds of shows, toured the country, unintentionally settled in a new state, experienced some of the worst pain and the greatest happiness a person can experience on this earth, and as a result of this crazy, beautiful journey called life, MANY great new songs have come. IT IS TIME to give these songs a voice!
I am in the beginning stages of putting together a Kickstarter campaign for my second album WILD RIDE! The campaign is tentatively set to run through May and June of this year. Recording will take place throughout the summer and fall, and release will be this winter. I plan to travel to Washington and Alaska for shows in June to close out the campaign, as well as continuing shows here in Florida.
I am very excited about this upcoming adventure and this next stage of my journey, as I hope you are. Please feel free to ask me any questions.
As always, I am overwhelmingly grateful for your support! Thank you all so much!
Join my mailing list for a FREE download of a rough, unedited, acoustic, iPhone recording of what will be the title track - WILD RIDE. This is just a teaser for only my mailing list members :-) The upcoming album will once again be a full band recording.
If you made it to the end with me, please respond by telling me what you are looking forward to most in 2017.
