Hello friends,

  I'm sending out love and prayers to my dear friend, Jerry Hedge tonight.  He is fighting a very serious medical battle and my heart is with him.  Jerry played with The Fabulous Pickups for several years.  He was very proud of his playing on our recording of Take this Heart and he killed it.  Take a moment tonight to send him prayers and healing thoughts.


Love ya, buddy.


My interview with Steve Earle! 


Hey Ya'll,

  I feel into a Steve Earle rabbit hole over the past week!  It was a great pleasure to get to interview him and he was incredibly down to earth and gracious.  You can read my write up right cheer!   Now to get back to writing this research paper and be done with my dang Master's degree!  Ugh!  Music is so much more fun and interesting! ;)




Happy Summer! 


Happy summer!  It's been awhile since I've updated you all on what's going on!  I finally am wrapping up graduate school, which is giving me new found time for music and writing.  Wilder plans to record one of our newer tunes, "Howl", real soon and I will be sure to share that with you!  Tomorrow, I will be interviewing Steve Earle for and it's truly a "pinch me" moment.  My first band, Second Sister, ended every night with his tune "Here I Am".  He's long been a hero and influence. I'm really looking forward to speaking with him and then catching his show, July 20 at The Taft Theater!  Wilder has new dates on the books, you can check that out here.  Otherwise, I'm doing lots of gardening, dog walking and pool time!  Hope to see  you out at a show soon!
