So I finally finished my next record at the end of January! I recorded it with Dave Bazan and Blake Wescott in Seattle and we had such a great time putting every song together. My brother played and sang on it and my fella Jeff Shoop too and a ton of other friends who contributed beautifully to the songs. It is the proudest record I have made thus far and I can’t wait to share it with you.
In the meantime, I have really been enjoying my time off. Did stand up comedy again a couple of weeks ago and loved it, it sure has been awhile! I felt so brave! Flew to Kansas to visit my Grandpa Maynard on the farm and actually helped birth my first calf while I was there…it was incredible! I was screaming, “it’s a boy! it’s a boy!” and I named him Sunny because he was born right at sunset.
Mr. Shoop and I may be planning a move to New York soon, my brother Brian is buying a sailboat to live on for the summer, I’m learning how to cook! I made a homemade risotto the other night..it was delicious and I was so proud! I can’t wait for the lilac trees to bloom again and I’m really looking forward to playing these living room shows at the end of the month too.
Life is fun. Hope yours has been too.
All my love,
