want a music update??


Man alive, life has been good lately. I think I have played at least. . . 5 times this month already. I have 2 shows and 1 open mic coming later this week. When I played at the "Velour" open mic night last week, they got my contact info to set up my very own show there. Plus, I just had a restaurant contact me back who I sent my demos to and they want me to play a show next weekend. Out of all of these things, I have only set up 2 of them on my own. WHATTT??? how does this happen to me?

Flat out: I am blessed with an amazing ability that God granted me, and it is seeming to take me far in the right direction. At this rate I am hoping to be able to quit my job, pick up and move out of state, and find record deal offers within the next year. Far fetched?? maybe a little, I will give myself 2 years just to be safe, but by george, I am oober confident.

I have gone to a few shows lately (not played at, but just observed) where very few bodies were present to watch and support the musicians with outstanding talent, I mean, WOW HOW THE CRAP ARE YOU PLAYING FOR 15 PEOPLE?? kind of talent. What is the difference between those people and the ones that we hear on the radio who score big time? Confidence. People-skills. Performance. Drive. Aggressiveness.
Friends: this is why I am confident. I may not have any more talent than your average Utah singer/songwriter but man I am not afraid to talk to people, I am not afraid to tell people that I will make it someday soon, and I am not afraid to put myself out there because I believe I am one of the best. This is what will make me a successful musician. YES the talent is a definite plus (thank the One above) but it is so much more, it is a complete business and I am ready.

Thank you EVERYONE for all of your love and support. It is evident to me that I would be nothing if I didn't have incredible family and friends to back me up, and watch me play every week. Seriously though I would be NOTHING more than a girl behind a poem.

I would like to thank a few people in particular

-God, who gave me a talent and allows me to use it.
-"D" without whom, I would have never discovered my love and ability for music in the first place.
-Brett Curtis, this kid is willing to come to every show if he doesn't have a previous plan. He's also my wicked sweet manager.
-My logan lovers, they have travelled from Logan to Provo just to come watch me play multiple times now.
-Mis Parientes, they gave up an entire room in our house that is now dedicated to my instruments, sweet sound system, and inspiration filled mind.
-Cindi Din Dindy, I consider her to be my #1 fan. She's there every show and still watches me play as if she has just heard me for the first time.
-Plus all the randoms that find me via technology, just because they heard me play and want to know where they can hear my musica again. YOU GUYS ARE INCREDIBLE!!

Thank you all. I love you

I am so glad to have found you! I love to sing, and wanted to be a singer when I 'grew up'

I am stoked to follow you on your journey as a singer!! Keep it up, I wish I had, but I do love my job as a mommy too :)
