Christmas Cheer

Christmas cheer is about to make it's way into your life.  Get ready.  All you need to do is come to one of my Christmas concerts this Friday at Velour Live Music Gallery in Provo, UT (135 N. University Ave.). Come to the early show at 6:30 p.m. or the late show at 9:00 p.m. – whichever suits your fancy!  I'll be singing songs from both my Anchor and Winter Moon albums.  Also, the amazing new duo, Mideau, will be opening.  This is honestly one of the most talented acts I've heard in a long time. The duo is made up of two of my favorite artists: Spencer Harrison and Libbie Linton.  You're in for a treat. Tickets have sold out the last few times I've played at Velour, so I recommend buying them online beforehand. Get them HERE. See you soon!

P.S. This is a seated concert. I dislike standing up at concerts, so I won't make anyone else do it. But come early for the best seats.

You, Me and Dear Lizzie, Tonight!

The election is over and I think we all need to sit back, relax and just breathe. Things have been so intense and I think we could use a night of music, good food and friendship to help us all get back into the swing of things. Come join me tonight for a mini acoustic concert at Dear Lizzie Boutique and Bistro in Highland, UT.  I can celebrate with you and I can give you a shoulder to cry on if you need it.    It's my job to help people feel joy, happiness, or to just simply feel understood through music.  I love it so very much.  

You can come anytime and eat, sift through Dear Lizzie's treasure trove of jewelry, scents, shoes and clothing and celebrate their 7th Anniversary of being in business.  I'll sing between 8 and 8:30 PM.  See you there!

We Became Sisters

Out of all the women that signed up to come to Morocco for our creative retreat, I only knew one of them and no one came knowing anyone else in the group.  We had women from Australia, England, Washington D.C., Oregon, Washington state, California and Utah.  Everyone was from a different background and lifestyle.  It was so perfect.  The beauty of this retreat was that at first glance, we were all so diverse. But after  spending time together in close company, it became evident just how much we really had in common.  I soaked up the time that was spent in the creative workshops we held.  Witnessing everyone's style in how they create was inspiring and reminded me to always respect and appreciate what others have to offer through art.

We created art, roamed the souks, rode camels in the waves of the Atlantic Ocean, had our hands and arms painted in henna, ate Lamb Tagine in the company of belly dancers, paused in reverence during the Islamic call to prayer and became sisters in the middle of an olive grove under the Moroccan sun.

If you are interested in joining April Meeker and I on a similar creative retreat next year, email April at secondsisterjewelry@yahoo.com and mention this blog post.
