The summer of 2018 has been a productive one. I had some new and amazing opportunities to play live shows outside in the summer sun. I played farmers markets in both Copley and Wadsworth, a party for Summit County Master Gardeners, Porch Rokr was a blast - I played at Barmacy Pub, and two - yes two! - events at the Cuyahoga Falls Amphitheatre - the Pop Culture Fest and Star and Stripes Celebration!!! I have also had a barrage of new song ideas in my head - most have yet to be developed, but I managed to finish “Comfort Blues” and “Easy” before summer's end. I found some great new cover songs as well, most notably, “Changes” by Black Sabbath and “When I Need You” by Leo Sayer. I absolutely love fall and can't wait to see what the new season will bring!
