Big announcement, right off the top – I’m so excited to let you know that I won the 2012 New England Songwriting Contest at the Ossipee Valley Music Festival this past Sunday! What an incredible honor! The song I entered was one of my brand new ones, called “A Hard Man To Please”. I can’t wait to bring it to life in the studio soon so I can share it with you all!
And speaking of the studio, I’m wrapping up work on my next CD, a collection of my instrumental piano works called The Open Road. Photos are picked out, text is being finalized, another little bird will soon be leaving the nest! I’m also setting up CD release events! I’ll keep you posted!
In the meantime, I’ll let you know what’s happening this coming week, and it’s a busy and exciting one, too!
