Well, it's already March of 2014. I am easily the busiest I've been in my career. We've spent the last half of last year gearing up for Meghan Linsey's solo career by writing the EP, which happens to be complete and to be released this summer. We kicked off the year with a cover of "Counting Stars" which was a single for One Republic (Ryan Tedder even reposted and tweeted how much they loved Meg's version...so cool) and currently it's be playing (a lot :) on Sirius XM The Highway. The video is on CMT and already there's been a great response for downloads on itunes! We couldn't have started off the year in a better place and are extremely excited about the EP release coming soon!
I was also fortunate to have some great styling clients. I did the production coordination on set and styling assist for Joshua Scott Jones on the video for "Honk (If You're Tonky") the hot new single on his solo release album, The Healing. Check it out on my styling page. Also styled photo shoots for a couple new artists Dillon Carmichael and Jan Edwards. I've been very fortunate to be able to work with many top designers and vendors for every possible occasion from video shoots, awards shows or just to personally shop for the exact addition to your wardrobe. I also can help you refurbish/update your existing wardrobe. So hit me up if you need any assistance in personal styling.
I have to add that my daughter, Haley Grace, has been busy writing and playing gigs with her band, Rebel Grace. For the second year in a row they've made the cut for the Wisconsin competition for bands, Launchpad, where the winners will play at Summerfest in Milwaukee. They've really kicked it up a notch this year and we have our fingers crossed. Haley is also working on her first EP with such co-writers as Meghan Linsey, Tyler Cain, Joshua Scott Jones, Dee Briggs, Shane Hines, Nicole Johnson and many other talented writers (oh yeah...her mom has a couple co-writes on there, too) She is working with amazing producer, Tyler Cain (Tennessee Kings).
So glad to hear from so many of my co-writers, friends, former NSAI members and new friends on here!! And yes, I do workshops and speaking engagements, too....so reach out if you need anything as I love bringing all that I've learned and experienced to share with others.
Hope your 2014 is going to be filled with amazing opportunities and an abundance of love, laughter and of course, music!!
On To the Next!!!
