Hello, everyone and welcome to my blog!!! First let me say that I am honored that you are taking time to read this. There are plenty of other things you could have done but you’re doing this! Thank you. Well, I have some exciting things coming up in the next few weeks. Tomorrow night, March 26th, I have a show at Carter’s Lounge in Warrenton NC. I am super excited about this because I think I finally have the right combination of musicians and we are going to kick ass.
Monday, I’m going to Georgia. Why? Let me tell you. I’m doing a song with J Red!
Yep, I’m going down to his studio to record it with him. I’ll tell you the story of how that came about. We actually just officially met last month even though I’ve known of him for about 20 years. He used to have a group back in the 90’s called the Average Guys and I briefly dated another guy in that group. During that time, the guy I was seeing gave me a CD of the group. Anyway, I met J Red at a show he did in Weldon NC and talked to him about those days. The next day, I posted on Facebook a picture of that old CD. Yeah, I kept it for 20 years!
Anyway, his wife sees the picture and shows it to him. I got a message to call him. So, I called and he was SO happy that I had that CD! He had lost those songs on an old computer and never thought he could get them back! So, I told him I would send him the CD. After all, it is his music. I sent him the CD and he wanted to do something for me in return. He offered to master one of my songs but I suggested we do a song together. He said OK and the rest is history.
You know, I continue to be amazed at how things are just falling into place for me with this music thing. When you are walking your true path, you attract things that will help you along the way. I decided to dive in the deep end of the pool and I haven’t drowned! Once I decided to make music my full time job, I wake up every day happy and grateful. Although it has been a little rough financially, the only thing I regret is not doing it sooner. BUT I’m doing it now, and I wouldn’t change a thing.
My advice for the day is to never let fear keep you from living your dream. There is NOTHING you cannot do. You are a divine being from a divine source. Believe that. Live in that space. This message is for me too. Sometimes I doubt it! I’m going to work on that! Anyway, until next time…keep listening! And if you haven’t yet, JOIN MY FAN CLUB!!!
