It has been a quiet summer. I spent some time reflecting on the past year and what I have accomplished so far. A year ago this month was my CD launch. It was such a highlight for me. I stood in front of such a supportive group of friends and found it difficult to accept all the applause that were coming my way.
Fans/audience. I have thought a lot about this in the past few months as well. Trying to determine who my fans are and what makes them fans. How do I find my fans? I think my fans are people who want to have their hearts opened.
I started working with a songwriting coach this summer. I have appreciated an outsider’s perspective. I have also realized there is a lot I can learn about songwriting. I love the fact that she says I must listen to what the song has to say and not hack it apart. I have been working on some songs that have been in my head for a long time. They can be a challenge to change.
I have a couple of shows booked for this fall and am planning to continue focusing on songwriting. I hope to record another CD in late 2016. I hope everyone has had a great summer.
