I haven't put out such a lengthy post in a long while - I usually procrastinate and then it slips my mind and then it's too late.
Recently, 3 small things happened and inspired me to reach out to all of you and say hello.
- My song "Small Hope Bay" was picked up to play on a radio show out of New York (WTBQ Hootenanny Cafe with Jon Stein) with the theme of children and the recent news about immigration. I put it out as a single as it is the last thing I have recorded . If you want to do me a solid you can download the song here:https://store.cdbaby.com/cd/marianneflemming2
- . I received a small royalty check from BMI - (and I do mean SMALL) nevertheless I haven't received one in years so I am taking that as a good sign to keep on recording . To that end, I am in the studio at our house and learning how to record -big shout out to Kari Newhouse for helping me learn Logic and lighting a fire under me to do this. If you'd like to learn more about Kari and her talent here she is http://www.karinewhouse.com/
- If you'd like to help me achieve this goal of recording new material e mail me back.
3. Beginning August 1st I will be hosting a monthly happy hour in Portland at McMenamin's White Eagle. This event is sponsored by Local Roots - a concert series and weekly radio show that promotes Northwest Original Music.
Here's how to find out more about that:https://www.facebook.com/localrootsmusicnw/
I hope to have local guests and people passing through the Portland area join me. (hint hint - Florida and Wisconsin friends!!!) If you'd like to be a guest email me back . My first guest is Joshua Davis from the local band Bitches of the Sun - more on that later>
Ok that is that
wishing you all a jam packed summer
