Yeah, I know… it’s been a while. A long while. Turns out trying to balance finishing my last year of college, working a retail job, getting to work on music stuff, and having a personal life can all sort of get in the way of the whole blogging thing. But no fear, I have returned!
Things have been interesting lately. God has opened and closed a lot of doors and so much crazy stuff has happened. Being an adult and getting more of a taste of the real world is both scary and exciting. All I can say is I’m stoked for what is ahead, and that God is awesome.
So what’s new? As far as music goes, I’ve focused a lot on writing the past few months. I went to an amazing gathering of female songwriters at the Nashville Treehouse back in September, and it was seriously life-changing and inspiring for me. Kim Hill and Paulette Wooten, as well as all the amazing ladies who attended, really sparked up my love for writing again. It was fantastic to get to hang out with a group of women who love what I love, and to be given words of encouragement from people who have been in my shoes. When I got back home from that, I made the decision to get back into guitar lessons. That was seriously one of the best decisions I have made in a long time. Since I was not fond of practicing as a kid, I kind of lost a lot of what I had learned, so actually getting to re-learn and pick up new things in my instrument again has been awesome. I am more excited about guitar than I have ever been.
Recently I started playing music with my boyfriend for his project Cramer Creative, which recently got signed onto Noize Cartel Records. His EP will be released next month and I featured on two of the tracks, but now that he’s playing live, I’m also stepping in as a guitarist since he leads many songs from the drums (thank God I started taking guitar again!!). It has been a blast so far. I am extremely excited to back him up when he plays SOMA in San Diego on the 12th of December!
As far as my personal music goes, there may or may not be new things in the works. ;) I am very excited about many of the new songs I have written. Please stay tuned, because I definitely want you to hear what’s in store!
I once again shall attempt to post occasional updates here on music, book reviews, and general life stuff, because I really do love the whole writing thing and I hope you guys enjoy it. Thanks for stopping by!!
