april 28

so, it's been forever since i have written anything, but it's because i have been a busy little bee with booking some tours as well as working on updating the website. soon you will see where i will be going solo and also where tisa and i will be doing our SOAK UP THE SUMMER 2003 TOUR in late june and early july. it's going to be a hoot. we have alot of towns that we are going to hit, and will be performing our butts off, so look out!!!!

the mailing list will also have some changes. if you happen to be on the list now, look out for the initial email regarding the changes. anyone else who wants to be on the mailing list, hold tight, and the link to the correct page on my website will soon be working so you can sign up right here!!!!

"orphans" my new cd will sooooon be available. we are finishing up the artwork and then it gets sent to the manufacturer and voila, it magically appears!!! it will be available at cdbaby.com (where you should go for all of your serious listening needs) as well as at all of the live shows. it WILL have some of the tunes that you guys have been begging for on CD, although nothing new that you have been hearing and craving from the acoustic duo. so sorry!!!!

"orphans" will have "no turning back" from the critters movie that i continue to get emails about, so you can finally own a copy of it! it will also have a few outtakes from "welcome home" that didnt quite fit the record, as well as another version of "grey" which was recorded with sue willett and robin pearl, fellow indie artists whom i met through the indiegrrl organization. the cd will also have some awful photos of me in my different incarnations, so beware. i should put a skull and crossbones on the cd cover just for the pics.... ha!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

enjoy the spring and i will check in soon!
