Hey hey hey!
Our country is falling to pieces, and here I am, writing a blog post about my music career! OK?!?
Gordon and I have had a fun and busy August/ September. He got flown out to New York and Michigan for business, and I joined him in Ann Arbor for a few days. It's so beautiful there! We just got back from Palm Springs after a gig there over the weekend, AND we had the pleasure of being termite-tented last week!! Life is definitely keeping us on our toes (and in bags. everything we own is in bags). Soon things might return to normal, but then again, maybe not!
PSA: Overnite Oats (the band formerly known as Jill and Gordon) have an INSTAGRAM NOW! An Instagram of our VERY OWN! Please follow us at @overnite_oats
We promise you lots of cute pics, videos, and updates!
Here is a pic from a children's party we played over the weekend:
Decorations were beautiful, the people were nice, and best of all: they had a pool. Perfect when it's 110 outside! We had a lot of fun singing to kids and grown ups alike. We also enjoyed the mini vacation we decided to take afterward!
We played at a chocolate shop in Los Angeles (ChocoVivo) on September 22 for their Jazz Night and we had such a lovely time! The air was crisp and it was a perfect evening for jazz and hot chocolate. Here's a pic of me, but Gordon was there too, killin it as usual.
I've got a new (ish) video up! Next one I'll be posting is "The Way I Am" by Ingrid Michaelson!
What else? I've been playing a bunch of farmer's markets. I'm back at the Thursday Westwood Farmer's Market October 19 from 12 to 6pm and October 26 from 12pm to 3pm
That's all the public performances I've got coming up for now; hopefully I'll add more soon! The good news is we've been playing a bunch of private parties and we're keeping busy with weddings, birthdays, etc! They're a lot of fun but they're also a lot of work, so I'm grateful to have more free time to give 100% to these well-deserving clients!
Here's a mirror selfie from the Costa Mesa Market (5 hours solo!!)
Don't forget to subscribe to my newsletter to find out where I'll be playing next! Not to mention music releases, secret shows, free stuff, aaaallll the gossip.
I think that just about covers it. Lots of private gigs, no more day job (...for me), we're figuring it all out and having some laughs along the way. Here's to the future and all the good things to come!

I have hope for a better future. An America where people do not live in fear of being shot for their skin color, sexuality, or for just...leaving the house. We can get there. We just need these rules to change. And we need to talk about it. Constantly. Until something changes for good.
On that note, have a cheery week! Be good, do what's right, your smile brightens someone's day! We are getting ready to play a wedding this weekend, sounds like it'll be a lot of fun!
Catch ya later, babydolls!!
