So, I am not going to make 2020 vision jokes since we have all heard them all already, and it’s barely the new year!!! But I am taking a look back, and looking at the fun times in the past decade since re-emerging into the music biz starting with the Runaways movie. When the movie came out, it sparked a revival for me and others from that era and here we are 3 CDs, 4 Singles later, and hundreds of gigs! Wow, what a greatful girl I am!
Here is the scene with “I Wanna Be Where the Boys are.” Song is sung by the actress Kristen Stuart – she did a great job protraying Joan! If you get a chance to check out this movie, it’s pretty real… just sayin’…
Speaking of new singles!! January 3rd is our official release of “Cold Hearted Lover” the 2020 version! This song was originally written decades ago with my band mate, and co-writer Steve Buffington. I had a blast recording this new arrangement with Jules Whelpton and Brian Tichy. Mixed and Master by Lynn “Ears” Sorensen! Cover Photo: Frank Rodrick.
Pick up the single and share with friends!!
NAMM, NAMM NAMM, NAMM… Anaheim, CA, Jan. 16-19th
What’s a January newsletter, without mentioning the biggest annual music convention in the world?!
Nation Association of Music Merchants, is a gear-geeks heaven! New vendors with new products, and of course, the tried and true. If it’s music related, it’s there!
The NAMM organization is a huge advocate for music education, and is always looking for ways to educate and inspire young and old to keep the creative fires burnin!
Jules Whelpton and I will be performing Saturday the 18th, at 4:30 on the floor of the convention center for our Guitar Cable and Case endorsers, Pighog Cables and Reunion Blues Gig Bags. It’s vendors like these folks that work with musicians and show them the love with gear to keep going! As endorsed artists, we in turn promote their wares! FYI, I only sponsor equipment I truly love!!
Thank you to my Endorsements!!

The Holidays are here in force…. Filled with all the excitement, furry, expense that could pack a day!! Sometimes it’s overwhelming but hopefully we can find that little escape.

Patriotism can be good or bad. Knee-jerk patriotism can be very bad.

Who I expect the very best from. – Emmylou Harris Happy Fourth… Continue Reading
