So, right after the July 4 holiday, I flew off to San Diego with the hubs (after dropping the kids off with gramma) for a week-long business trip/vaca!
Day 1 included a fun co-write with some friends in Southern California. It's a catchy tune we wrote with ads in mind, and it's in production now. Hoping that this may be the first sync placement I'm involved with! My co-writers both have more experience than me, so I was glad to get to work with, and learn from them!
Over the rest of the week, I traipsed around the city while hubs attended conference sessions (and still only saw a fraction of it). Highlights included: seeing seals & pups at La Jolla Cove; the San Diego Maritime Museum & the USS Midway Museum; Hiking a slot canyon in Anza Borrego Desert State Park (at 6am... on a day where temps of 114 were predicted... Was only in the low 80's when we hiked though); A (more commercial/touristy than we thought) walking tour over the Mexican border into Tijuana; A brief visit with family once back at Gramma's house. Then, after driving the 4 hours from Gramma's back to our house, I drove my daughter another hour or so to girl scout camp...
After such an eventful & exhausting week, I slept in, today, and am psyched to get back into playing songs at tonight's AcoustiCafe! Hoping to finally get to Hambone's Tuesday night open stage soon, as well.
UP NEXT: recording the new co-write song from Cali; recording and prepping new songs for an EP release (hopefully this year)
- July 28th 2pm at Mr Small's Cafe in Millvale (open stage - I'm the feature);
- July 31 from 3-5pm at Peters Twp Farmer's Market;

- Sept 22 at Hambones (doors at 10:00am) with multiple female artists for LadyFest at the Acoustic Brunch;
