You Can Make the Big News Happen, Voting and Sharing Upcoming Video!
"STAY TUNED for BIG NEWS!" I keep noticing people posting. In this capacity I am more Rizzo than Sandy (a reference for you musical theater geeks). So I’m letting you in on it, because really there can only be BIG NEWS with YOUR HELP. (And because it’s not ready in time for this newsletter).
SPOILER ALERT: I have been going through footage and pictures for a crowd-sourcing video in order to get back into the studio and record. It has reminded me that you are the most amazing and loyal fan base a girl could ever ask for. So many of you signed this mailing list after hearing me busk in Harvard Square before I had anything recorded. Others cheered me on at the WKLB Colgate Country Showdown. Others met my mom at George Knight’s 92.9WBOS Mother’s Day show. Some of you emailed me from California after hearing me on XM Satillite, or from the library in England! And still others drove down from Maine to hear me play in NYC. Others just signed up recently while I played local shows in Newton this year. You know who you are…and if you signed my mailing list at a live show and said hello, I remember you and am so grateful for each and everyone of you.
One dad wrote me in 2010 to let me know his 11 year-old daughter was a huge fan of “Fool’s Gold” after hearing me on WMVY’s Fresh Produce sampler CD. She is now 16 and in a band of her own in the Canobie Park Battle of the Bands. We could all bump her band up closer if not to first place right now, by clicking, scrolling down down to the black square that says "Rising Nation" and VOTING HERE (you can vote daily). How cool would that be?! That’s the power we have collectively for each other. Get to it and thanks!
All of this is to say, that you cared enough to sign up, read these and spread the word so moves me. You encourage me to continue to make music. So, I gratefully ask you to open a second newsletter this month and join me in sharing and spreading the word when I get my crowd –sourcing campaign up and running later this month. I cannot wait for you to see it and hope you share it far and wide. With your help, I could be recording "basics" by summer's end. It will be up to you and the stars.
Hope to see some of you in Boston and NY this month! Also, save the date for a very special benefit in Boston Oct. 1st.

You rock! Stay tuned. You make my heart very grateful!
Much love and thanks!
