Extra Extra

Been doing this music thing for a while now, despite all the warnings of how difficult it can be to maintain a career in my chosen profession. One of the ways to keep the income flowing is by doing jingles. Why not, I’m a singer/songwriter right?! From “Hooters makes you happy!” to “Torrey Pines Bank, where business gets done!” I get paid, airtime on the radio, and recognition. Not bad.

Point in case, over the past couple weeks, I’ve been asked by several different people, “Did you do a jingle for the International Boat Show?” The answer is “Yes….your journey begins, at the boat show.” Heard it myself the other day, the one and only time, on the radio as I pulled up to the KFC drive-thru. I said to the cashier, over the intercom, “Hey that’s me on the radio! What are the chances of you throwing in an extra biscuit on the house, for a local celebrity?” What I got in response was, “If you show up just before closing, we throw out all the leftover food and I can hook you up then!” WOW! Much more than I expected!

Yep. Elise & I have a new CD coming out. Funny thing is, we recorded it back in Jan/Feb of 2015. At that time, she was VERY pregnant. She actually gave birth less than a week after singing her last back up vocal track. WOW! Super Trooper! After taking some time off to experience her new found motherhood, and my busy schedule of events (which included playing songs like “Wheels On The Bus” for her son Kai’s 1st B-day Party), we have decided it’s time to give birth to our creation, the limited edition, “Wood & Strings”.

Hungry!

The thought of my mom making pancakes at my show this coming Sunday, has made me hungry and thinking about food! Not sure what I’m cooking up yet, but it’s still breakfast time. B-52’s got me thinking about some Quiche Lorraine. Darn it, I’m outta eggs. Guess the quick fix would be toast with some Lady Marmalade (LOVE that song!). Whatever I decide, I’m gonna take Weird Al’s advice and EAT IT!
