First off - I have to proudly say the Iowa Public Televisions documentary, FarmHer, won the 2016 regional Emmy® for Best Cultural Documentary and I received an actual, physical Emmy® Award for Original Score (you can check out the trailer with a clip of the theme song HERE) I was notified of the win via email last fall - which came completely out of the blue. The award arrived in January and made it feel much more real - and my father is building a case for it right now. I considered asking that he build it twice as large as needed so that I'm ultra motivated to try for that ever elusive Grammy....
I also am back home from Nashville where I've been recording drums with bandmate Russ Tomlinson and the always talented, and self-appointed drum snob, Matt Sepanic.
I can't wait to get back - but for now.....focus is on rehearsing for three shows in Austin, TX during SXSW/Music week.
For anyone in the area - I have (3) 45 minutes showcases in Austin this week:
Friday, March 17th at 7pm - San Jac's (lower level)
Saturday, March 18th at 5pm - San Jac's (upper lounge)
Saturday, March 18th at 11pm - Touché
I'll be joined by bandmate, Christine Steeples, and we have a special electroduo version of the show ready to go...since I'm a true indie solo artist and have yet to figure out how to fit all 8 banmates into one gas-friendly vehicle and one hotel room <3 cough="" needasponsor="" span="">3>
After that the band (full band - woo hoo!) heads to NYC for reasons I'll go into on another day/post.
As always - I hope you have much love and music in your life - thanks for tuning in....
