Musikfest & Moving 

@ Musikfest 2010 w/ Rob Hinkal of ilyAIMY
Hey! Long time no update! I’ve been busy in Boston getting my album recorded…it has taken WAYYY longer than I expected, but I’m getting used to things taking WAYYY longer than I expect, so it doesn’t phase me too much.

Anyway, I was able to get away last weekend with my parents to Bethlehem PA, where I was honored to play on the Martin Guitar sponsored “Lyrikplatz” stage at Musikfest! This was my first festival, and the experience was great! There were lots of big artists who played over the course of the week, such as Martina McBride and Norah Jones, and of course I was at a much smaller stage than them but I got videoed and interviewed by a local TV station (who said they would send me the footage, so we’ll see!), and the crowd was great. I also got to hear/meet the band that played after me, ilyAIMY (which stands for “I love you and I miss you”) and they were AMAZING! They’re also from Baltimore, so I look forward to seeing and hearing them more since…
I’m MOVING back to Maryland in a couple weeks! Woo Hoo! Obviously the album recording isn’t completely done yet, so I still need to tie up some loose ends that I have to do here in Boston, and then probably finish the rest after I move. I’m not sure how it will work out, but I don’t think I could stay here another month. In fact, I already dropped off most of my stuff in MD when I drove to PA. I can’t tell you how much I am looking forward to being home indefinitely, after years of scattered visits. I’m ready to be around my family and old friends, and I’m excited to scope out the Baltimore/Towson/D.C. music scene! I always felt SOOO bored and lonely as a musician in my neck of the woods, but I think this time around I will have a better idea of where to network. We’ll see. For now, I’m not too worried about it, just looking forward to being home soon, and to hopefully having a finished album to show you before 2011 rolls around! Expect a party haha! And I look forward to hanging with you fellow Marylanders, so hit me up! Miss you all!
Mwah!! xoxoxo
