A Showcase, A Video, and Being in Thin Air
I just spent four days in Bogotá, Columbia, and I’m now writing this at Toronto Pearson Airport (because of course the straightest line between Bogotá, Colombia goes through Canada, and I find no fault with that).
Bogotá sits at about 8,500 feet above sea level, so while I have loved the city and the scenery and the people, I am very happy to be back in Toronto breathing full-fat air instead of the skim stuff I’ve been coping with all week. Thin air, indeed!!
Mainly, I’m dropping this quick little note to let you know about a great singer-songwriter showcase that I’ll be part of on December 3 in Lawrence, MA. About 12 of us will be participating, and it really is not to be missed. For many of us, it’ll be the first time doing good long sets in a long, long time. In addition to being a good time, the show is also a fundraiser for its host, the One Broadway Collaborative.
I’m really looking forward to it, and I’ve already been thinking through the things I want to play for you, which brings me to this:
I am continuing to write and record for an album that will most likely be out mid-year 2023, given its current trajectory. However, there is a song from the upcoming collection that I hope to release earlier. It’s going to be the first of my songs that I release with full fanfare and an honest-to-goodness professional video. I’ve been working with Emily Ashman at Tritown Productions, and we’ve come up with some fantastic, wonderful, and really exciting ideas for what to include. As an example, I can neither confirm nor deny that there will be puppets!*
Anyway, that’s it for now. I look forward to seeing you soon, and really hope you can join us on December 3. As always, thank you so much for being on this trip with me!
*For my NYC friends, the puppet idea did not originally come from me. However, once suggested I said “YES, WE MUST DO THAT!” You’ll understand why.
