Here We Go Again! Production begins soon…

Here We Go Again! Production begins soon…

This has always been an exciting part of the year for me. Not only is my birthday this weekend, but Daylight Savings Time begins and Spring is just around the corner! Living up North, every sign of Spring is welcome to me. Out of the dark chocolate hoarding, Kleenex wringing month that is February, March means new life to me in a lot of ways. There are lots of things to look forward to this year musically and here are just a few:

Touring: Check my schedule! Lots of stuff going on through June so far. Soon I’ll be adding upcoming info about Lake Charles, LA in May and possible points west in the fall. If you’d like me to come play at your event or in your yard or tiki bar I’m available for that, too!

CD: Yes, TropiGal will be a year old on April 23rd. It’s time to start the next project. I have a pile of demos into my producer, Kevin Johnston, and we will be having a production meeting soon with plans to have the CD out by sometime in July. The CD is, as of yet, untitled. Along with a whole bunch of exciting new songs, plan on seeing a more interesting package this year with more artwork and info. I’ll be revamping my website and lots of other things, too. You can listen to some demos here:

MERCH: New Bottle Poppers are in and I’m working on designs for more clothing options for the summer. Bottle Poppers are only $8. They are available on the website and are available in hot pink and turqouise blue. The pink one is shown and I will update the website soon to reflect the new merch.

I just got back from having a blast in chilly Tampa for Music on the Bay  Next week I’ll be in Key West for a few days with temps in the 70’s. If you’re in town, you can catch Key West Chris Rehm and I at Pearl’s Patio and Green World Gallery on March 16th, the day of the big bar crawl. The event at Pearl’s is the Southernmost Coconut Castaways Jump Up with fun, music and drink specials and supports their Relay for Life Team. Check it out here: Just look for the Events Box and click on the Jump Up info.

That’s it for now! I hope it wasn’t too much. Always feel free to give me feed back, of course. And, thanks for reading!

Hope to see you at the End of the Road,
