At the beginning of each new year I am filled with an excitement unlike anything else. It’s as if it is not just January, and life goes on as it did yesterday, but it seems as if a world of opportunities lies in front of me, all waiting to be played with. “Hello,” to new adventures!
Some people say: “Out with the old, in with the new”. I like to think that what is in the past can be the foundation of the new. So for me, it is more like: Cherish the old and make it new!
My recently released album “Chez Moi" for instance, has a selections of songs that are among my favorite French classics and most of them stem from a different era. Some are over eighty years old! As the band and I looked at that ‘old’ material from a different angle, a new sound emerged. I believe it offers a fresh and modern appeal to listeners of all ages and backgrounds.
As the album is now available on iTunes, CD Baby and other websites, I am eager to play the music on stage and share it with my audience. I will be traveling to France at the end of the month to visit venues and meet with musicians for my upcoming tour in April. A CD release party in my hometown Charlottesville, VA is also in the works. I am indeed bubbling with excitement as all these things unfold!
Stay tuned for all the new that is to come…..
….. and a very Happy New Year to you all!
