Telluride Blues & Brews,

What a week! Maybe I should have read my horoscope or something, as things have really been looking up for me, musically speaking...

First, the Chris Isaak show was kick ass! Sold out at the House of Blues and the crowd was digging my music. I played by myself and amazingly, I was not really nervous at all. It was strange! I get more nervous thinking back about now than I did the moment of. Anyhow, Chris and his band really loved the show. He said I better return the favor to him and let him open for me, which I laughed at and he was like, "no, I'm serious!". Anyhow, his show was fabulous. I have always been a big fan of his music (which I had on cassettes mind you) so I need to get some itunes stuff now on him. With any luck, we'll pair up again sometime. In the meantime, everyone got Olga lipbalm (always a hit) for the road.

Found out the same day of the show, that I was selected as 1 of 6 finalists for the Telluride Blues & Brews Blues Competition, which means I get to go to Telluride next week! Never thought that would happen, but it did. Lucky for me, my man will be out there too, as he's playing the actual festival. And, I am psyched to see Bruce Hornsby who I have not seen in about 6 years. I met him a long time ago in SF and always enjoyed hearing him play, especially solo. He's truly anointed with musical abilities.

And this monring, I find out that I am a featured artist this month on Take a moment to check it out!
