Busy busy fizzy

Hey good lookin'!

We have been busy bees over here, playing a gig pretty much every weekend (sometimes two in one weekend)! To save myself a few thousand words, I'll just leave some pictures here:

Sooo as you can see, we've been bouncing around singing for everyone and anyone! And these are just the ones I got pictures of. We have somehow managed to squeeze in family time, friend time, and a vacation or two! Gordon's parents visited last month and our families took a trip to Yosemite. Which was majestic. We also recently met a violinist who lives close by, and everything felt/ sounded amazing when we played some songs together. So we may bring a bit of violin to some gigs and videos in the future!

ALSO last night we were lucky enough to be able to see the Watkins Family Hour in LA (with special guest Joey Ryan from the Milk Carton Kids) and o.m.g it was incredible. So much talent in one room... the entire night was very inspiring. We spend so much time watching videos of these musicians that it's surreal to finally see them live. The whole night was filled with music, laughter, and healing all in an intimate environment. Gordon and I hope to someday be even a fraction as good as any of them and to create an experience like that for audiences.

I am probably forgetting to mention something else that happened, but forgive me, since it's been a whirlwind! We are working on getting some gigs that are open to the public and it's a personal goal of mine to have a recurring jazz gig in LA. Once we have more shows lined up, I'll update the site and send a reminder through my newsletter! The previous blogpost has a newsletter sign up form!

Alright everyone, until next time, stay kind, stay positive, and stay awesome.
