I just won “Best Performance” for my new song “The Heart Juggler” at the West Coast Songwriters Palo Alto November competition! *Musical Cartwheels*
My new song “Rocket Ship” is now live on iTunes! I wrote this song three weeks before my father passed away from bone cancer last May. It all started with a dream he had about a rocket ship and it gave me an idea for this song. I sang it at his funeral and decided to do something with it to help others with cancer. Half of all proceeds from this song will go directly to cancer research to help those in need of treatment. This for you Papa Jim-I dedicate this song to anyone who has ever lost someone to cacner. Special thanks to Richard Harris for doing an amazing job producing this track with me!!
For the release of my new single “Rocket Ship”, I am headlining at The Hotal Utah in San Francisco on Saturday, November 16th!! Let’s hang out!! You don’t want to miss this show!!! :) Click on the link below for information and tickets!
It has been quite awhile since I’ve posted. It has been a crazy time with various tasks and recently losing my father to bone cancer. I needed to take some space and regroup and now music is flowing and finding it’s way out of me. I will be blogging a lot more and have some things to share very soon!
Last Monday, June 24th, I went out on a rainy evening to share a new song and hear some other songwriters at the San Francisco West Coast Songwriters monthly song contest. The song I chose to sing is called “Rocket Ship”. I wrote it a little over a month ago for my dad. He passed away from bone cancer on May 29th. I have more of a back story to share on this song when it is released, but I played the song and I won for “Best Song” that night!!!
It was bittersweet. I know my dad was with me, but I so wanted to call him and tell him the news that I had won. I left feeling grateful to have connected with people, but tears filled my eyes as I drove home and thought of my dad.
I go back next month to play for the “Song Of The Year” title for the San Francisco Chapter. No matter what happens as far as “winning” goes, I am just really happy people connected to the song. We shall see what happens. I recorded the track yesterday and have some work to do before it is released but I will share it very soon!
I am thankful for the opportunity to share and connect! I love you Papa Jim!
