Hello Friends! Love and snow are in the air here in beautiful Jersey City, NJ ;)
I'm happy to be home for a couple of weeks before my next couple of gigs. I was able to try playing my dobro through some amps, at the Jim Henry show (spontaneously, on stage!) and then again at Molly & Eben's house (Eben, from Roosevelt Dime has a few really great amps). Oh boy, just plugging in and hearing those different sounds made me feel like there are songs coming. So, of course, I bought one for myself! FINALLY! It's a 1965 Fender Vibrochamp and it literally just arrived at my doorstep. I made myself write this message first, just in case I disappear into a haze of amp-bliss for awhile!
In other news, my good buddy Jon Paul will be backing me up on guitar at my next two shows! Check out this video we made of a duet we co-wrote for the RealWomen RealSongs project:
I've got a writing session planned with Jesse Terry and our June tour is getting more exciting by the minute! We've got gigs confirmed in concert halls from Boston to Nashville! And we're even planning a limited edition EP of new songs and duets, commemorative tour poster, and more surprises. :)
All right buds, time to plug into that amp. :)
Hope to see you soon!
