Jason & I are back in Texas now. The CD Release Tour for Uncovering Stones was so wonderful. Now I am hangin’ in Austin where we are having record breaking heat…so I thought it would be nice to give you a cool free download of “Digging Up Dirt” (something I can’t wait to do!) Enjoy the tune…hopefully it can be a chill soundtrack to the end of your summer!
Reviews & Recent Videos…
The new album is continuing to receive great reviews! Some exciting things are on the horizon and I will be sure to pass them along as soon as I can:) Here are a couple of videos from the CD Release shows in Austin & Dallas:
Playing Games – The Cactus Cafe 06/21/11
Honeybee – The Kessler Theatre 06/22/11
We will be uploading some more videos from The Cactus Cafe (with the band) so stay tuned!
Art & Creations…
Right now I am focusing on creating art in all areas: painting, jewelry, co-writing songs with Jason and folks from Denmark (with the House of Songs), and anything else creative I can get my hands on! A good friend of mine is about to have a baby, so last week we painted a Gecko on her big belly with henna for good wishes and blessings! I loved it so much, I was thinking that I should offer this for all mommies to be…. 🙂
I hope you have a wonderful day!!
Lots of love,
