Happy Black Friday!

November 27, 2009

Hello everyone,

I hope you all had a Happy Thanksgiving! Did anyone manage to grab any good deals today? My hat's off to those of you who joined the crowds of holiday shoppers this morning. You were in my thoughts as I made myself a cup of hot chocolate, stretched out, and finished reading another Grisham novel. No lines for me!

What are your holiday plans? I'm looking forward to starting to put the finishing touches on some of the material for a'tris' next record. If you are in or around the DC area I hope to see you tomorrow! I'll be performing a couple of the new songs at Urban Outfitters and I can't wait to share them with you! I also have a limited number of "Of The Commons" CDs to give away at the end of the show! I don't think you could find a better stocking stuffer. But I may be biased.

If you'd like to introduce your friends to our music and are not in the DC area, iTunes allows you to easily gift albums, and we've made it even easier for you to buy ours. All you have to do is click here and then choose gift this artist. I'm sure many of you are aware of this, but I only discovered it last week so - if you're like me - here's a helpful screencast:

1. Thanks to The Modern Vocalist for recently featuring us! It was seriously cool to be recognized by them. TMV is made up of extraordinarily talented vocalists and vocal coaches so that really meant a lot to me personally.

2. Thanks to Leah DeVon from Indie Style TV, Rob Saunders from Deuce Management and Promotions, and the folks at Comcast! In Leah's latest episode, she had a great chat with Rob about the music biz and shared our music video from "Automatic Doors". If you're a subscirber and would like to catch our video on the big box be sure to check your local listings! I've included a clip of the show below for you if you'd like to watch it on your computer.

Hope this finds you all feeling healthy!
