Father forgive me, it's been a year since my last post. And it's a month since I performed solo at Annie and Rod Capps' On the Tracks songwriter series held at the historic Chelsea Train Depot in Chelsea, Michigan. The audience was warm and wonderful, making my first little solo gig a sweet experience. Many thanks to my friends who attended, and the new audience members who made me feel welcome. The set was 40 minutes long and I only put about 80 hours of rehearsal time and planning into it. Ha. It was worth the work and the experience inspired me to keep working to become a better musician. If an audience is paying (or not, even taking time to listen if a gift to me) I owe them the very best of myself. I am pushing forward to deliver my music the the best way possible.

Me and the best audience ever
My friend Irma came all the way from Grosse Isle.
My good friend and supporter, Karin
My "First Fans" and awesome moral supporters, Erin and Ron. (At the afterglow.)
What would I do without these friends? Without the kind of people who come out and support, with smiling faces and big hugs? What would any of us do without the likes of Rod and Annie, who help bring the music forward with places like On the Tracks? The singer/songwriter community is a world, an entity, a universe that I am privileged to be a part of.
