After hearing from my friend Alicia McGovern, an amazing artist from Utah, I realized I have been, once again, remiss in writing. I assure you I am alive and well, enjoying my summer here on the California coast at home in Ventura. i have been getting settled in my new 3 bed. room that I rented in December and have been able to collect quite a harvest from the half baked musician's garden in my big yard. Then along came Steve. Steve the dog dropped out of the National Search Dog Foundation's training program and has found a job looking after me. So, despite a few unfortunate plants that had the poor forsight to have been planted right in the path of the fast and furious figure eights that Steve has made a practice of burning around the yard, all is well on the home front.
I have been playing lots of music and have been on the bill of some amazing music festivals this summer with my four piece "Scarlet Fire", doing more of a dancy, rock show that what I do alone out on the road. It's been really fun for me and also a challenge, fronting a band with the full sound as opposed to more mellow acoustic stuff I also like to do.
I have handfuls of shows coming up for me locally here at home and it looks like I'll be back on the road next spring with two houseconcerts booked in Utah and inviteds to firm up on the way and along the road home. Hope the summer has been kind where you are, please check in once in a while so I know you can hear me?
