Wonderful news! I am pleased to announce that I have been invited to support Jason Mraz on his upcoming tour of Europe. Starting in Rome, I will be bringing along a couple of my favorite musicians and a few of my favorite instruments and set out on a quest (I love the word quest) to hopefully find myself a few new listeners. Jason and I met briefly during the Nobel Peace Prize Concert a couple of weeks ago and I am truly honored he wants to give me this opportunity (which, according to my beloved dictionary, means: a set of circumstances that makes it possible to do something. Nicely put!).
As for now I am finally feeling the calm of Christmas taking over. I’ve finished all of my shopping and wrapping. I don’t intend to think of anything but reading and hanging out with my family for a couple of weeks. Of course (and thankfully), new songs tend to jump into my head and out of my mouth from time to time these days, so I am sort of working a little, I suppose. To me, this is probably the best (and sometimes the worst) part of being a songwriter.
See what happens when I get enough sleep? I write more. I shall now disappear back into my book right after I wish you all happy and joyful holidays.
