So here I go again, starting Tuesday, February 12, I am ramping up to start promotion of my new CD, But Wait, There’s More…
Just signed with an artist management consultant, Charlie Stewart at Handshake Management in Austin. Will be meeting with him face-to-face on Wednesday to discuss a strategy to help me promote my music and my new CD. He has helped several Texas based artists to expand their horizons and many of his clients are Texas Music Award nominees or past winners. A few of those include Brian Kalinac, Bill Ward, Matt Harlan, The Renfrees and 2 Bit Palomino. I am very excited to be in such stellar company and am anticipating learning how to better get my music out there in this new undertaking.
After meeting with Charlie I will be headed straight down to Brownsville, TX to play a private house concert on Valentines with the infamous and mega-talented Butch Morgan. While I have known Butch for several years through the Kerrville Folk Festival, this is my first opportunity to share the stage with him. I am quite excited about it.
After returning home, I will immediately start packing for my first every Folk Alliance International convention in Toronto, On beginning February 19th. I will be doing a few showcases but mostly meeting people, making connections and trying to get a handle on the singer/songwriter folk industry. I have volunteered to be on staff to help me get to know the right folks.
I will be posting every few days over the next few weeks to keep you posted about what is happening and my take on this new world I am fully entering after standing in the wings for so many years. I have several shows, billed as CD releases coming up in Brownsville, Austin, Nacogdoches, Jacksonville, TX and Quitman, TX over the next couple of months. Also I have several in the planning stages but not confirmed. It is shaping up to be a very busy time. Let’s talk again soon, how about it?
