Co-writing with Danish folks / Acoustic Sanctuary Show / EarthSky Feature!

Hello friends! I hope y’all are doing well!

In the last few weeks, I was able to write some more songs with three talented songwriters from Denmark – Claus, Kristian and Nana. We were able to create some beautiful songs and make lasting friendships. This is all happening with the program based here in Austin called The House of Songs. Jason and I are talking more and more about booking a tour to Denmark, The Netherlands, Belgium & Germany soon…maybe next summer! I will be recording a rough demo of one of these songs called “Fire” and will send that along to you soon so you can hear one of the new tunes…

A couple of days ago, NPR’s EarthSky featured one of my songs again! You can listen to the podcast here.

And if you haven’t heard yet, Austin 360 Radio is a new station based out of Austin, TX but can be listened to online from anywhere in the world!! They have been spinning “Honeybee” quite a lot:) If you would like to request one of my songs from Uncovering Stones, you can email lalloyd@statesman.com with your request. They still have our 07/14/11 interview & video up online if you’d like to check it out. Just visit www.Austin360Radio.com

Acoustic Sanctuary show / HAAM Benefit Day 2011
I have some fun shows coming up in the next few weeks. Tomorrow night I will be singing at a new listening space called The Acoustic Sanctuary. It is in downtown Austin, and is held in a church. I am sure this will be a lovely space to perform in and share a night of music. For info, please go here.

On Tuesday October 4th, we will have another HAAM Benefit Day. HAAM (Health Alliance for Austin Musicians) is what provides affordable health care for most of us working musicians here in Austin. It is an amazing organization and is powered by generous donations from many people and places. Most of the funds are raised annually on HAAM Benefit Day. To learn more about HAAM and to find out ways you can get involved, please visit www.myHAAM.org
I will be performing that evening at Aquarelle in downtown Austin.

That’s all for now! Have a beautiful week…hope to see you someday soon!

Love
Vanessa

Tour update, Austin 360 Radio & more…

Hey friends,

I am writing you from deep in the hills of West Virginia. Jason and I have been on tour since the CD Release a couple weeks ago and it has been amazing so far!! We have had great shows in TX, AR, MN, IL & OH, and now we’re heading to Nashville, Memphis & Little Rock for the last few shows of this trip. I am not looking forward to the crazy heat in Austin, but it is always nice to get home!

…Videos, Radio Performances & such…
There are many videos online from our CD Release at The Kessler Theatre in Dallas. Also, the KFAI live in-studio performance is archived so you can hear that online for another week or so. Click here to listen that show. When we get back to Texas, I’ll be uploading some videos from the Cactus Cafe show in Austin as well, and will post them to the website, so be on the the lookout for that…

And next week (Thursday July 14th / Bastille Day!) Jason and I will do a live in-studio performance for Austin’s new radio station Austin 360 Radio. You can listen online at www.austin360radio.com

Thank you for all your love and support!! Everything has been going really well with this new album and we will be setting up many more tours, so hopefully we’ll see you someday soon in the near future…

Lots of love,

Vanessa
