I've had a crazy couple of months both personally and professionally. I like being busy though, and have managed to have some fun in the mix. Last month, I started up a monthly music jam because I got tired of practicing and playing alone. I thrive on playing in an ensemble, so I figured it was time to make a change of some kind. I ran an open jam for years out of my home and now have a great studio space in which to host more. The first one was small, which is just what I was looking for. I imagine that, as time goes on and word gets out, it will be larger, but I plan to cut it off at a certain point to keep it at a manageable number.
I also finished the audio recording for my upcoming music video "In Winter." It sounds great with oboe, banjo, bass, mountain dulcimer, synthesizer and electric guitar. It would be silly to release it during the summer, so the release date will now be late this fall. We still have a little filming to do, so this snow may actually be a blessing. Who would've thought? And, maybe I'll actually get to snowshoe for the first (and probably only) time this season.
