Hello from England!

Hello from England! This tour, in support of our new vinyl "Flowers on Mars," has been an incredible adventure. All told, we will have done 15 appearances (venues and radio) and we have seen a good portion of southern England in our travels from place to place. I have been thrilled to meet and share the stage with some amazing artists, including but not limited to: Hatful of Rain, The Rosellys, Pete Greenwood, and George Frakes. We definitely will be coming back this way, and likely expanding to include other countries in the next tour.

And what is on my mind? Well, quite literally what is on my head! I curled my hair today. Ridiculous to mention? It is surprising how being constantly on the go and making do with dressing rooms and touring van make-up stops, etc. will make you appreciate those days when you can do something of your normal routine, frivolous and silly as that sounds.

If I had to pick a favorite experience on this trip, it would be non-musical, as we met two great friends here who followed us to 7 of our shows, trekking around quite a bit to do so, and making us feel quite loved (and well-watered) at each stop. They also made us some lovely souvenirs to take home. Cheers, N and M! My favorite musical memory may be the night we performed at the Old Queen's Head in London, (pictured here) as the venue was THE coolest place, and the artists we met and heard that night were incredible. It has been so cool to see how England does "Americana."

There are so many stories I would love to recount, and we all know (if you are reading this) how terrible I am at keeping up with blogs. I have made it my resolution to improve. Facebook updates and tweets are just not enough, and one can get pretty lazy with those abbreviated forms of communication. Be sure to e-mail me if you have specific questions about my music or our travels. Telling the stories you want to hear is the best!
