Total Eclipse of North America

“You flew your Lear jet up to Nova Scotia to see a total eclipse of the sun.” – Carly Simon

Hello all. I hope this week finds you well. I’d like to give a shout out to everyone who showed up to the writer’s night at Lone Wolf Saloon on Monday (Josh, Tim, Tim, Kent, Jeremy, and Brad and company!) We had a great time, and judging by the response you all did too. Due to the eclipse next week, we are taking a few weeks off. But get your songs ready, because I will be back hosting on August 29th (that’s a Tuesday!) Would love to see all of you there again, and anyone else who has songs they want heard. It’s a great venue, and a chance to really showcase what you’ve got away from the traffic and distractions of downtown.

This week I will be going through my own music, and the 20+ new songs I have written over the past year. I will be meeting with my producer to get the ball rolling on a new project. How many songs would YOU like to hear on the new EP? Leave a comment or shoot me a message and let me know. I’ll be doing some special events and give-aways throughout this whole process, so if you aren’t already signed up for my newsletter, make sure you do to stay up to date on all the new and exciting developments.

Last weekend I had the chance to attend my family reunion. It was great to see those I love, and meet some of the more distant cousins and newly born family. It reminded me how truly important family is in this world, to see where you’ve come from, and have that connection. While it’s not always a given that family will be there for you, as support whenever you need it, it is true that humans crave connection. And family is a title that can be earned by more than just having the same genes as someone else.

So this week, I implore you to look at your life, and remember to tell those you care about, and those who have always been there for you that you care. That you are thankful to have them in your life. Because life moves fast. And sometimes the people we think will be around forever, are gone in the blink of an eye.

Until next week –

Jessica :)
