Some of you know how much my dog Shep means to me. Shep was one day away from being euthanized when this organization took him out of the kill shelter and brought him back to the refuge. Their grounds are ideal for animals waiting for there forever homes and the staff care deeply about the animals in transition.

It was a special night in West Virginia - as I performed by a brook in Falling Waters. I played some deep cuts and new tunes for an exquisite crowd. It felt like a very inspiring night. I introduced a new song to the set list called 'Poison Rain' . The full show is on YouTube. Click on the link below to watch it.
A truck breaking down twice an hour before the show was not going to hold me back. I just had to make a slight geographical adjustment. Thank-you to everyone who joined me while I sang across the lake from Virginia. The truck will be fixed and the shows will continue!
Almost a quarter way in!
Hard to believe it's been 3 months since I sang beside a cactus in Mesa, AZ to kick-off this tour. Even for a gypsy like me - this is shaping up to be the biggest adventure to date. Like all true adventures - it has been filled with magical moments and a few obstacles but no matter how challenging the road gets - it ALWAYS makes perfect sense when I start singing at a show. Thank-you universe for providing people to meet with hearts the size of the moon. To everyone I have been able to reach through the songs I sing - thank-you. We're just getting started! Thanks Jenks Farmer in South Carolina for this fantastical photo!
I purposefully set a loose itinerary to be available for extra gigs along the way to maximize my time in each state - ex: private house concerts, special events, concert bookings etc... If you have an event you might want to book me for in the coming months - just reach out. Whether you are in Ohio, Washington or Alabama - knowing a potential gig to add to the calendar ahead of time will help with the trajectory of this traveling extravaganza!
We are 3 states in on this 48 state tour and it seems to get better with every show! Thanks for being in the crowd, for sharing my dream and for all of your inspiring words. Knowing I'm reaching you in a some kind of positive way makes all of these miles make sense. I love what I do and the best feeling is knowing it reaches your soul. Thank-you!
I want to make every show accessible for everyone - which is why there is no charge for every concert. I appreciate the tips because there are unavoidable hard costs such as food and gas to bring you songs live every week form somewhere in the US. Again - for those who were and are in a position to tip - thank-you.
