Thanks to all the support I received during my Kickstarter campaign to record a LIVE album, I reached my goal 1 week early, and SOLD OUT the show which takes place on March 14th.

Gabriel Wolfchild (ahem… he’s on NBC’s The Voice this season, #nobigdeal #teamxtina) and the incomparable Julia Massey will be opening up the show.  I’ll also be joined by a slew of talented musicians including Amanda Sue Winterhalter, Grace Yoo, Matt Hart (The Local Strangers), Mya Byrne, and Greg Coladarci.  Greg produced my first 2 albums, and I’m so delighted he will be here for the 3rd!

As an artist, I get  really excited when just one person relates to a song I wrote.  So to be supported by so many was truly overwhelming and I am really grateful and indebted to you.  I hope the album makes you happy once it’s all recorded, wrapped up in a neat little package, and out in the world.

Kickstarter to record a LIVE album!! 2/4/15 – 3/5/15

I am so very excited to announce that I am finally going to record a third album – and that album will be recorded LIVE on March 14th, 2015 at Empty Sea Studios in Seattle, WA.

I created a Kickstarter campaign to help offset the costs of the recording, CD replication, promotion, and design.  There are lots of great rewards, including being in the audience the night of the show!!  Opening up the night are my good friends Julia Massey and Gabriel Wolfchild. 

If you’ve ever been to a live show, you know a lot of my performance involves comedy, off the cuff banter, bloopers and the like.  A lot of my songs are funny, and recording them in a studio wouldn’t capture the organic nature of the songs, and most importantly the audience reaction.  I’ve been wanting to do this project for quite some time, and YOU get to be part of it! And, best of all – if you can’t make the show, it will be streamed live on the web!

Contributions of any size make a world of difference.  I know it is a big deal to ask people for money, and I truly would not able able to do it without you.  I am so excited to be able to share these songs in their purest and most raw form.
