I started this whole crazy journey in a coffee shop just outside of my home town. I played for a bag of coffee (which i’d hadn’t discovered its wonderfulness yet) and a few claps!
Looking back, I freakin’ loved it! I played as many places as I could all along working a day job at a bank! Seems pretty typical though. Ask just about any banker and 6 out of 10 will tell you they are in a band.
It took some time, luck, and the support of an amazing women to discover I might be able to do this with out a J.O.B. (Just Over Broke).
You see I made just about every mistake I could make as an independent musician. Actually, I still make plenty of mistakes. Yet I am still finding reasons to love what I am doing!
I love meet all of you and learning your story too! Recently, I started a campaign to grow our music lovers community.
So, I started the #humpdaygiveaway on Facebook. Well…WOW! I am amazed by all of your participation on Facebook, twitter, and Instagram!
And so, Thanks! From the bottom of my heart!
Its Sunday morning and I am sitting with my 6 year old daughter watching cartoons and reflecting on my previous week of shows.
While I am exhausted and happy to have a low maintenance mourning I am grateful. Friday nights show at Barley & Vine in Lakeville was so much fun! the crowd was absolutely ready for the show.
Request after request and we even got a rather crated palates show from a customer (no kids were present). However, it was hard not to sing a song on the spot about it.
Saturday we played a small festival in Crosby, MN called the Red Dirt Festival it was hosted by Surly and the Cuyuna Lakes Mountain Bike Trails.
Nathan and I got an opportunity to eat at this place called The Red Raven in Crosby, MN. OMG! I had the most amazing Cuban sandwich! I recommend you get there ASAP. 5 stars!
Well that was my week. I hope yours was amazing too. Tomorrow I am doing a new Facebook live session called #TBT Top 20’s. I will be singing a song called Plush by Stone Temple Pilots.
Join me for that session! Everyone will be getting an amazing prize! (Im like Oprah…and you get a prize, and you get a prize)
Have a great rest of your week!
P.S. We are a little under 5 weeks away from the Music Lovers Membership launch. As a reminder I am only releasing 12 spots. The membership package is absolutely amazing! So I am going to slow release the Items.
