Two weeks ago I returned to the stage for the first time in a very long time! On Friday, June 3 I celebrated the 5th Anniversary of my first album, "Flourish" and shared songs from my latest release "Letters to Ben" for the first time live and in person.
It was a lovely evening, truly. I do struggle a bit with nervousness before performing, but I am usually fine once I start. I could not help but recall the night of my first album release concert 5 years prior and how terrified I was. In the time between completing sound check with the band and the show beginning, I was experiencing more stage fright and self doubt than I ever had in my life! The jitters I felt two weeks ago really paled in comparison to May 31, 2017! Both nights really did turn out just right, as I got to do what I love surrounded by family and friends. What a blessing!
So much has changed in the few years since I'd put on a concert (my last would have been my Christmas album release in November of 2018). What did not change was the beauty and magic of connecting through the power of music. If you were present with me, thank you so very much for sharing your time and attention that night. It was an honour to sing for you. If you were unable to be there, I truly hope to share my stories and songs with you when the time is right.
I have been working hard, trying to put together a mini-tour for this summer. If you have a place for me to play (a living room, a concert hall, a church sanctuary, a backyard, a coffee shop...) please do reach out and let me know. Once I have more details in place, I will be sure to share them here.
If you are not already connected through my email list, that really is the best way to stay in the loop!
