Hello there!

A lot is going on as of late. The guys and I have been gigging quite frequently. We just had 3 shows in March! We’ve also been writing a lot of new tunes that we are all pretty stoked about. And if you missed out on the shows, don’t worry I’ve spent hours editing the videos and uploading them onto youtube. ;) Here’s a link to one of our newest songs, Games, from our recent performance at Best Buy in Chelsea, NYC. Also, I’ve been working on getting my first album, Waking Up the Ruins, on itunes and CDBaby for download. I’ll blast the internet when it’s available. Until then if you are interested in seeing the lyrics and album credits for the album you can simply click on the Album tab of this website and find that each song title has a link to the lyrics.

Cheerio!

Hi folks! It’s hard to believe 2010 is nearing its end, these past few months have surely flown by for me. But to start off 2011 right, the boys and I will be performing at Caffe Vivaldi (32 Jones Street, nyc, in the Washington Square Park area.) 3 times!!! January 13th, February 17th and March 17th, all from 9:15pm-11:00pm.

There will be new tunes and possibly a few cover songs but no cover charge! Come join in on the fizunnnn!

Just f.y.i. Caffe Vivaldi is a cozy intimate space with a food menu and drinks. Do it.

The Doves

Went to The Doves concert tonight at Terminal 5. The venue was pretty cool. My boyfriend and I stood on cushioned seats in order to see, it was pretty much standing room only. We went to the top (third floor), it was less crowded up there. The 2nd and 3rd levels had V.I.P. sections blocked off right by the balcony edges. I enjoyed it, but the sound wasn’t quite as great as it could have been. Perhaps I’m spoiled by sound of the album. I was surprised by how nice the venue was, especially for being so far on the West Side of Manhattan. They showed videos throughout the whole show on a big screen behind them, it was more entertaining than some shows that just shine bright lights or show swirlies on a screen the whole time. They came out for an encore after perhaps 3 minutes of clapping. I’d guess the audience was about 2,000 people maybe, give or take a thousand, kidding…probably 2,000, but I was never the best at guesstimating. The songs were pretty well balanced between their old and new albums, which I liked.

I scored a free ticket to a show the last week of May, one night after work. It was for The Roots, it was pretty dope. It wasn’t what I expected though, they actually had quite a few guest artists come on stage every once in a while to perform. I really liked the opening band, Elevator Fight. I had heard one of their songs before. The lead singer, Zoe Kravitz, Lenny Kravitz’s daughter had a really great stage presence. It was a fun unexpected thing to do.

I should really start making it a goal to see at least one live performance a month.
