Wanna know what it's like to have a panic attack? Read my latest blog entry for the San Diego Troubadour and find out.
Exciting news! I've been named a finalist in Kerrville Folk Festival's New Song Contest. The songs "Boat Train" and "Crimson Love," off The Lovebirds album Breakup Shmakeup, were selected as winning entrants, so that means The Lovebirds are headed to Kerrville, TX at the end of May to perform the tunes in front of a panel of judges alongside 31 other finalists.
The New Song contest is special in the folk music world, and I am so excited to be honored alongside so many other great songwriters! This contest has helped launch the careers of many successful musicians, plus many friends I admire in the music world have won in past years - such as our producer Jeff Berkley, Raining Jane's Mai Bloomfield, Tom Prasada-Rao, and Steve Key.
