I guess it’s too late to say, “Happy New Year” as it has taken off in such a way that I noticed it because the bills are due.
But looking back at 2015, it was some year.
2015 started out with me reuniting with friends and cast mates to perform in “HAiR: Retrospection” at the Kansas City Repertory Theater (at my age). Then I was shown some love from Santa Fe as one of the musicians they love. When I returned from KC, my CD, Resurrection was awarded The Best CD of the Year.
My band toured new and familiar venues in New Mexico and Texas where we headlined. Then in November my musical-husband and I went to Nashville to write with a few hit making songwriters, Gary Nicholson and Kent Blazy. I got to hang out with Lee Roy Parnell in his living-room listening to his next CD (keep an ear out for it!) but what really knocked me out and off my chair was listening to The Time Jumpers with Vince Gill. It will take up more space to describe to you how affected I was and remain not only by their professionalism but their skills…they played to and for each other rather than out-play. Nine musicians on one stage without big egos. Can ya dig it?
So as I write this, I am reminded that I have a major deadline looming over me. I owe a team of writers more music for a musical we started on a few years ago. So, I will say ‘farewell’ for now. See you soon and thanks for your support. Z
