Panelist at this year's ASCAP I Create Music Expo

I am super excited to be a panelist at this year's ASCAP Expo up in Hollywood!  The ASCAP Expo provides a unique opportunity for songwriters, composers, artists, producers, publishers - and those in the industry that support them - to come together in an unprecedented way to share their knowledge and expertise.  I will be participating in a panel on Friday April 14 at 3:45pm entitled "Production Music All-Stars: Exploring Opportunities in the PM World with the PMA."  Though I would hardly consider myself an "all-star," I'm looking forward to the opportunity to share my experience with how production music has provided unique opportunities for me as a solo artist pursuing their own career.  Here are the details if you are interested in checking out the event: http://sched.co/AFJJ  Hope to see you there!

Michael Tiernan Album Release Show

Last weekend I had the privilege of sharing the stage with my good friend Michael Tiernan for a handful of songs at his sold out release show for his new EP 'Love and a Gun.' It was a great show with some great new songs - definitely check out MT's new album (available on iTunes and Spotify)! Also, if you haven't been to Brick 15 in Del Mar yet, you must go. It is a coffeehouse by day and a listening room by night with some GREAT nationally touring acts coming through. The owners Liam and Laura are transplants from Club Passim in Boston, and are creating a similar community of music here in San Diego. Go experience a show in this great new venue!

International Acoustic Music Awards Finalist

Hi friends!  I just found out that I am a finalist in the IAMA for Best Female Artist with my song Shine off the new EP!  Every couple of months I enter a song contest like this one, and each time it feels a little bit like a long shot.  Most of the time nothing comes of it, but every now and then you see your song on the list!  A few years ago, Meghan Trainor (All About That Bass artist/songwriter) won this very contest before anyone knew who she was, so I feel really honored to be included in the group of finalists!  You can check out the full list of finalists here.
