Hey folks! Gosh, I've been so busy performing that it seems I've forgotten to write about it these past few months. This past month has presented me with a lot of great opportunities and I'm excited to see where they take me.
It looks as though I may be singing on the soundtrack for an original theatrical dance piece being put on by a professional California dance company. I will be working with a talented local composer who was commissioned for the job. I am certainly excited to branch out in a new direction; I've heard some of the initial demos for the composition, and the music is absolutely beautiful, so I'm really enthusiastic about this project! More on that later....
Some of my recent performances include Blue Back Square in West Hartford and the Reed-Swale annual folkfest. It was my first time performing at Blue Back's outdoor stage, and I came home with a great feeling about the place. The audience was great, and the acoustics were surprisingly nice for an outdoor venue. Its set up really well for music and its a great place to connect with new people - I'm very much looking forward to going back for a second appearance on July 25th.
It was wonderful to be back at the Reed-Swale folkfest for a third year. I always love to share my music with other musicians and hear the local talent. At the folkfest I was invited to sing on a the demo for an original rock opera - that will ideally be sent in to the theater and performed locally next year. Back when I wasn't so busy with my original music and performances, I spent a lot of time singing at the local theater - so it would be nice to revisit the theater world from a different perspective!
With all these new projects - in addition to recording my second album which I hope to have out by the end of the year - I will be busier than ever. I'll try to keep in touch with you all the best I can! In the meantime, try to catch me at one of the shows listed on my calendar.
