141 - Fair Bean
Photo by Amy Zamarripa Hadn’t been to Fair Bean in a while so it was good to be back. It started off a little bit of a slow night but several folks showed up midway through and it ended up being a pretty full list by the end, though those of us left still got to squeeze in another song or two. One lady in the audience told me after my set that she liked my voice and would love to hear...
140 - Red Shed
Photo by Amy Zamarripa The weather was pretty perfect for being outside in the awesome courtyard. Connie and Robert picked me up to check out the stage since we were supposed to play there the next week as part of a songwriter’s showcase.

And actually, I’d never been out to the Thursday night open mic at Kick Butt yet!...
137 - Rubicon Artist Development Spring 2012...
There are a few things that are a little hard to believe when I sit down to write this post: 1. I’ve played my songs and solos on other people’s songs in a band. 2. I’ve been doing that for almost a year now 3. That year is almost up! 4. I forgot to get pictures of our final Rubicon Showcase! I did get some videos, which need a bit of editing and my iMovie is acting up. As in,...
