ISLAND Hill House Songwriting Artist-in-Residence (& so much Lamp Light love!)

Hey everyone!

This weekend was an absolutely surreal experience.  Too beautiful for words.  Thanks so much to everyone who makes Lamp Light Music Festival a phenomenal success – it was a huge honor and great joy to be a part of it this year.  Possibly my favorite show I’ve ever played! (just due in part to it being the fulfillment of a dream 2 years in the making 🙂  Here’s some links if you’d like to browse a little about it (which may include pics/videos eventually)

Upcoming news is just as exciting for me, and for those of you wishing I’d put out albums more quickly 🙂  I was selected as an Artist-in-Residence for ISLAND Hill House in Northern Michigan – a very competitive and amazing opportunity beyond anything I’ve before experienced!  For two weeks, I’ll be living in a private cabin in the woods, with a piano and fully stocked fridge, doing nothing but writing songs for 2 weeks!  In addition, there was an option to connect with the community – so I chose to (since I write fast anyway, and would love to be more acquainted with Michigan 🙂 – and I’ll be performing at Short’s Brewing Company and Blackbird Arts in Traverse City while I’m there!  (in addition to leading two Songwriting Workshops for ages 12-18).

If anyone from up North is reading this – my show at Shorts’ is Nov 15th at 7:30pm, and I’ll be performing at Blackbird Arts is Nov 17th at 7pm.

Lots of other news, including tons of new songs – but I’m tired and I should pack 🙂
