During SXSW and Red Gorilla Fest, I will be playing one solo show and two with my band mate Gabriel Newville. We are so excited to share some new songs with you all!
Lately I have been writing and playing shows as a solo act. It has been a long time coming, for me to face my fear of being on stage all on my lonesome. I have discovered I enjoy it immensely and this viseo and song will be a little snippet of what that looks like. The video is set to be done by Jan 23rd. Filmed in my own livingroom by Matt Mead, and recorded by Drew Bartels (232 Studios,) I originally shot this video to advertise for the piano software, True Keys. So, when you see a big screen in the background with the software displayed, that is the reason why. I loved using True Keys as it gave the song a smooth finishing touch that my good ole 2006 Casio Privia would otherwise butcher. Dear Lord, I pray for a new keyboard this year. If I had it my way I would bring a vintage Wurlitzer with me to every show. But since I don’t have a personal Vin Diesel to help me with heavy lifting, I think I’ll have to stick with what I have for now.
I am blessed beyond what I can Imagine. I will inform you more on what the song means and so forth once it comes time, but for now I hope you will come join me and my full band, Hillary Hand & The Roseliers, this Friday evening at Ivywild School for a wonderful benefit concert. We go on at 8pm sharp! We have been working ever so hard on playing together as a newly formed band. I appreciate my fellow friends and band members so much. I also appreciate YOU, for reading this, which means in some way that you have been there for me.
Have a wonderful day and hope to see you soon.
December is such a mix of emotions for me. I find myself frazzled, getting caught up in the rush of all of the holiday hustle that I can hardly enjoy it. One reason I chose not to play any shows this month. Instead, my band and I have been and will be working very hard to prepare for the bundle of shows coming up. I’m excited, not only because I work with such talented and wonderful people, but also because they challenge me and keep me going. All I can say is that I am grateful.
I can’t even think about the New Year until Christmas is over, but just to give you all a heads up, these are our next shows. We hope you can come share in the joy we have in playing music for you all.
Jan 10th @ 8pm – Ivywild (Benefit for Girls on the Run)
Jan 18th @ Zodiac
Jan 26th @ The Meadowlark
