Really pleased to have been asked to join in on this songwriters night at The Feed n Seed in Lafayette. I'm looking forward to sharing some of my own songs, as well as other songs I've been singing for years, but now playing them on electric guitar. A whole new world, I tell ya!

TAKE A LISTEN ...

UPCOMING SHOWS ...

  • This is what I call "The Way to do Life." Just bought some books (you know, one novel, one non-fiction on the history of a city and the history of mankind), and beginning to reenact the art of "reading on a porch". It's kinda all I can do right now besides wanting to hide. #somedaysaretheblues

  • Closed out the night seeing another SUPER inspiring musician.... Lucinda Williams! Man, lovin' this woman and her writing. Some damn good stuff. I feel like a woodshedding/song writing period is about to come upon me, some transformation needed. And I love to feel so inspired by so much that's around me. #blessed

  • Well, this was my view of #LosLobos for the first few songs. I luckily scored a backstage pass from Feufollet, and was giddy to know that Los Lobos would be playing there shortly. And as I was studiously standing at the bottom of the stage steps, trying to see a little better with each step to the left, a step to the right, a stage krewe man saw my eagerness to be on that stage and led me right up those steps. #cloud9

Crying at the start of songs, singing along to Volver and many other songs I've heard for years, tapping out baile folklorico rhythms... Just really moving for me. Tejano, tex-mex, mariachi, chicano, L.A.  All these things I saw and heard on stage is so much of what I grew up with and who I feel I am. Sometimes it's hard to feel so far away from where I'm from, and in some ways I've become so much of where I've lived throughout the last 20 years being away from home. But it's amazing how a song, lyrics, music can capture these childhood memories and bring it all back. I was at home on that stage for just a little bit, and did it feel good. ¡La Raza!

  • Maybe only one of my Festival shots. Taken backstage during A-Wa's set. Amazing, of course. And so many feelings post weekend and everything I took in. Watch. Listen. Strive for more. Determined. FOMO. Next time. One more. Grow up. Beautiful. Powerful. Present. Now. How. Too late. What am I doing? What are they doing?
