Luck Finds Those Who Are Out After It 

I was able to play Main Street Music Fest last weekend because a music friend gave me the heads up about the opportunity.  I was able to mark the milestone of getting my name on a festival t-shirt thanks to this one!

Beginnings! 

Work continues on post-production for the EP, and while that project is baking in the oven, I'm lining up gigs, practicing my songs, writing, and getting established online.  Thanks for checking in!
